Supervising and Managing Professionals – Reframing Professional Practice to Deliver Meaningful Outcomes
Led by Sharon Lambley, author of Proactive Management in Social Work Practice, this seminar drew from recent SCIE research into supervision which raised questions about how supervision is 'framed', delivered and evaluated.
Designing Services for Public Values - Why Research Matters
In this seminar, David Wastell, Professor of Information Systems, Nottingham University Business School, argued the case for the design attitude, providing an overview of his own design methodology (SPRINT) which has been explicitly developed for public managers
The seminar provided me with much 'food for thought' as how the task of supervising and managing professional staff needs to be completed in a way that evidenceswhat is required more effectively."
This was a useful and stimulating seminar, and I intend to incorporate the knowledge into my supervision."
I very much enjoyed the seminar and in my position as manager within an IFA I am able to implement some of the strategies that Sharon suggested such as reflective supervision."
