Innovation Insights boards

Spring Consortium have developed a set of Innovation Insights boards to capture insights from the project’s perspectives about how innovation in Children’s Social Care is being done, which methods people are finding helpful and the conditions required for innovation to thrive. They offer an introduction rather than a ‘how to’ guide, using illustrative examples of projects from within and beyond the Innovation Programme. The boards also provide reference links to further information.
There are five Innovation Insights boards covering the topics below, as well as a summary introductory sheet:
 
The value of innovation in Children’s Social Care
Innovation methods in Children’s Social Care
Adopting and adapting innovation
Scaling and spreading innovation
Creating the local system conditions for innovation
