22 Step 1 – Characteristics of Success What characteristics would we see in our work if your chosen theme was operating successfully?

23 Step 2 – Blockers and Enablers What would help and what would hinder us achieving this success? What are the aims?

24 Step 3 – How well are we doing in meeting these aims? What’s working? What needs to be tweaked? What gaps are there?

25 Step 4 – What else should we do?? What might be some solutions? –Short term? (2 months) –Medium term? (6 months) –Longer term? (12 months)

32 Bristol Youth Links Strategy To secure high quality integrated support and development services for young people in Bristol a toolkit for life rd March 2010

33 Planning some next steps 1. What change can you make to secure the successful implementation of the strategy? 2. What change can your service / area make to secure the successful implementation of the strategy 3. What change can the PSA14 Board / Children’s Trust make to secure the successful implementation of the strategy 4. What needs to happen now?

34 Move to a table on the theme that you would like to focus on stepcomponentnotes 1Characteristics of success If we’re doing this theme well, what will we see? Frame the question to ensure focusing on the right thing, e.g. what characteristics would we see in our work if this theme was operating successfully 2Blockers and Enablers What would help and what would hinder us achieving this success? Don’t ‘sit on the fence’. Blockers and enablers are often two sides of the same coin, so try to describe what each side would look like e.g. a blocker to high self- esteem might be using critical language, whilst an enabler might be seeking opportunity to describe what they’ve done well. Don’t just say ‘language can be a blocker or an enabler’. 3Positive Aims So what are we trying to produce? Create aims that spring directly from both the blockers and the enablers. 4Solutions Matrix Take a good hard look at what we’re doing against these aims. Is it really doing it for everyone it needs to? What needs to be tweaked? What gaps are there? What might be some solutions? The challenge is not are we doing them but are we doing them effectively? Are we reaching only a proportion of those we need to reach? Start with what’s happening, don’t add layers until you know if what you’re doing is being effective. If may be just as good to stop doing something as start. This may free up additional resources for something more effective. Solutions may be: Short term (2 months) Medium term (9 months) Long term (18 months)
