    The meaning of readiness
• There are no ‘green field sites’
• Wide variation in ‘where we are now’
• Different aspirations
• Different understandings of ‘possible’
  and ‘desirable’
• Differences of available ‘technology’
  and current ‘practice’
                                           2
 The meaning of readiness
The emphasis is on self assessment
• Our working assumption is that self
  assessment is an important part of a
  learning process.
• Long term evaluation of outcomes
  achievement starts at partnership
  formation.

                                         3
 The dimensions of readiness

• Against all of the FAME building
  blocks.

• In each building block assessed
  through a series of statements.

        Scaling progress
• On a scale of 1 -4 what does 4 mean
  to your partnership for each building
  block?
• Can you rate where you are? –
  evidence?
• At different participation levels
  (service users, service delivery,
  corporate commissioning)?

                                          6
        Scaling progress
• 1 No progress –
    • this issue has not been addressed yet
• 2 Some progress –
    • but greater understanding of the
      issue/resource availability would help
• 3 Real progress is being made
    • But some way to go
• 4 We are confident we have
    completed/achieved this
                                               7
     Using the self
   assessment process
• Facilitated workshops either at each
  level or with a cross section of levels?
• Collection of evidence – surveys?
• Action plan arising from EFQM
  question on each building block?
• Defining intermediate outcomes with
  an emphasis on participation?

                                             8
               Outputs
• Radar chart
• Action plans - what would getting to the
  next rating mean?
• Learning inherent in the process and
  further learning identified
• Preparation for the business case.
• Preparation for the partnership agreement
  including resource commitments.

                                              9
     Self assessment tool
• There is an excel version on the
  FAME web site
• We are working on linking the
  readiness statements to parts of the
  generic framework text.

   Sample RAT statement
• Scoping Statement and Business Case
  development
  – Leadership
    • A small ‘promotional group’ has been formed,
      drawn from key agencies to take the lead in
      establishing the scope of the project




                                                     11
    Link to Framework text
• If a new partnership has to be formed it will need
  to be championed by a small promotional group to
  bring the partnership into being. This group will
  have the following tasks:
   – Mapping the environment of the partnership
   – Putting forward its intended outcomes, researching the
     legal and policy framework
   – Identifying the proposed multi agency practice
   – Describing the appropriate level of information sharing
   – Proposing the partnership membership and governance
     arrangements

                                                               12
