Further Information

This e-learning module is designed to offer underpinning knowledge to support the roll out of the Productive Series. Whilst learning can occur at any time, the Productive Series has been purposefully designed in a modular form to allow teams to implement the programmes in a sequential manner starting with the Foundation modules and progressing to the Process modules. The NHS Institute therefore strongly recommends that implementation follows the recommended path to ensure the best opportunity to realise the benefits which the programme can deliver and ensure they are sustained.
