7 Traditional Management  Produce goods and services  Work is to be done by individuals reporting to bosses  Comprehensive plans and past practices drive work  Communications on a “need to know” basis  Tell people what to do  “Fixing” is a top-down task Client-focused Management  Focus on the client  Work through self- organizing teams  Continuous improvement based on experiences with clients, with front-line input  Be open about improvements required for progress  Communicate interactively through stories, questions, conversations  High-performance teams solve problems 7

8  Retention of information is longer than where employees work independently or in an isolated environment.  Real Life Experiences – It allows employees to learn and capitalize on actual experiences of others.  Sharing Ideas – It provides an environment where employees can share their own ideas, which can increase interest among the participants and promote critical thinking.  Ownership – Collaborative learning gives employees an opportunity to engage in discussion when needed and allows them to take some of the responsibility for their own learning and development required to become critical thinkers.  Learning Communities – Collaboration naturally develops learning communities around specific subject areas.  Reduced Anxiety – Given the less formal environment, employees may feel less overall anxiety and more willingness to engage with others through the normal process of communication.

11 Phase 1: 3 – 4 years, making progress on recognition of the need to change, early adoption, and foundation building.  Phase 2: 3 - 4 years, “middle adoption,” involves “heavy lifting” and the elimination of impediments.  Phase 3: 2 – 3 years, as current improvement efforts are operationalized, a greater proportion of the County and its clients will both recognize and benefit from the effects of employee-led, leadership-supported change efforts. 11
