Here are some comments from attendees at our Impact Workshops 2017

“Quick surf of documents for inclusion in a business case. One stop shop that made it faster to turn around the document, helped to meet a tight deadline.”

“Don’t be afraid to change things if they aren’t working.”

“I found it useful – particularly the concept of breaking down the process.”

“I was most inspired by the different examples of publicity, especially the infographics, and the annual report on a noticeboard.”

“Breaking the process down into steps has made the task of writing up a project less daunting, so I will be writing more case studies/stories.”

“The final section on SHOUTING was very useful indeed – gave me lots of ideas and food for thought.”

Some comments from KM Task and Finish Group – Knowledge for Healthcare 3/12/2015

“We want to produce a collection of case studies that will encourage library managers to engage with KM activities in their own trusts, once they realise that they are probably already doing KM but just not calling it that. Hoping to avoid duplication, we looked at your case study template as a colleague of mine had pointed me in your direction. We modified it slightly to incorporate ‘resources required’ into ‘the story’ and made a few more design changes.”

Other feedback we have received:

“I got access to the wiki last year just to see what this “thingy” was all about and ended up finding the toolkit damned useful! It helped me rationalize and spell out one of the projects I was about to start and to dovetail it with all the local, regional and national drivers which I really had not thought about and defined more clearly till then. The templates and examples were a real boon in helping me produce the project profile. As a by-product, I now see the resultant documentation as evidence of a quality approach to our library business processes. A really good piece of kit – well done to the team. Cheers everyone!”

“I used the toolkit today to help me to complete a vacancy freeze form in an attempt to retain funding for and recruit to a post which will shortly become vacant. Invaluable in completing sections on how the post supports: A. Compliance with legislation or Nat / health service guidelines and B. Trust’s ability to deliver on its service / key performance obligations / targets.”
