Day 51: O.D.

My first OD (Organisational Development) Steering Group today.  OD is important for us to plan, monitor and shape how the organisation grows, learns and develops and to ensure good succession planning to develop talent for the future.  We discussed our OD plan, which includes our training & development and succession plans.

We looked at the demographics of our staff, what further detail we want to know and how we incorporate this into our Public Sector Equality Duty declaration in the new year.  We reviewed the results of our Board effectiveness survey and how we can develop future GP leaders in Luton.

Later I met with exec colleagues to discuss how we'll develop our five year strategy and more detailed two-year operating plan (2014 - 2016).

I then spent time this afternoon working on our Risk Register and Board Assurance Framework, ensuring that we're effectively managing the high-level strategic risks as well as the more operational ones.
