About Networks

A Network approach is centred on connecting the right people with the right activity.

To support any improvement work, good communication channels will always be crucial. There are many ways to share learning and communication through people and across Networks including:

  • Conferences
  • Events
  • Meetings
  • 1:1 conversations
  • Small group discussions
  • Blogs
  • Online forums
  • Formal and Informal Networks

Any of these channels can be achieved through virtual or face-to-face methods. Most need a range of communication and information sharing methods. Deciding on the most appropriate approach at a particular time is key to success.

HIS places a Network approach at the centre of much of its improvement work. This means that groups of people and organisations agree for themselves what the best approach is to sharing information, communicating and keeping in touch with each other throughout the lifecycle of projects and programmes of work.
