The way we work

A common factor that successful, ‘innovative’ organisations share is that they have internal processes that are specifically designed to support and help in the development of innovative products and services.

The NHS Institute has linked with world leading innovation and improvement experts and organisations to develop its own innovative internal innovation process (pdf, 135.28 Kb). All teams in the NHS Institute use this innovation process to help them develop solutions to some of the key challenges that face NHS organisations.

The innovation process also places a strong emphasis on collaborative working with other NHS organisations and staff to ensure that the solutions that are developed meet the needs of those that will be using them.

How the NHS Institute's Design and Innovation team use the innovation process within their work is described here (pdf, 56.02 KB).
