The Scottish approach to public service reform: lessons from What Works Scotland


What Works Scotland (WWS) was set up to inform public service reform in Scotland guided by the 2011 Christie Commission. In this session, WWS will share and discuss key learning from the programme, offering an overview of findings from eight areas of research and practice:

  • Leadership
  • Prevention
  • Evidence
  • Place
  • Participation
  • Partnership
  • Governance
  • Workforce

There will be short presentations and group discussions to make sense of the research and consider implications for policy development and frontline practice. This will include a panel session involving perspectives from across the public service reform landscape. The purpose is to take stock of where we are in the implementation of the Christie Commission agenda and shed light on priorities for the next stage of public service reform.

Registration is from 9.30am. The formal programme runs from 10am to 1pm and is followed by a networking lunch.

This event is free but places are limited so please register to confirm your booking.
