MN System Wide Project Holds Kick-off Meeting

The MN System Wide project kicked off its “Mini Collaborative” on Monday, April 1, 2013 in St. Paul.  Participants included 40 people, representing 12 teams that will be working on CJS projects over the next two years. Five locations from around the state connected via video conference. The kick-off meeting borrowed several successful aspects of the national SSLC kick-off meeting, including a “Why Am I Here?” panel discussion and a presentation of Dr. Justeen Hyde’s slides on “Cross-Jurisdictional Sharing: What Makes it Work?”

Like the national learning community, Minnesota’s learning collaborative is placing an emphasis on peer-to-peer learning and off-script discussions. At the conclusion of the meeting, all participants were asked to share their “a ha” moments. Some insights included:

  • Incorporate “quality planning” into each step of a CJS project
  • One size does not fit all; local context is important
  • It is hard to move forward if you don’t have a crystal clear driver

The “a ha” that wrapped up the meeting was a quote attributable to John C. Maxwell, “Change is inevitable, but growth is optional.”

Shared Services Learning Community Kicks-off

April 17, 2013

More than 100 people gathered in Kansas City March 12-14, 2013 for the first Shared Services Learning Community (SSLC) meeting. The SSLC is made up of 16 sites across the United States that are exploring, expanding or implementing ways to share services to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of delivering public health services. Public health officials and policymakers spent the conference becoming acquainted with the variety of nationwide projects, meeting colleagues and sharing ideas on how best to move their projects forward.

The Wednesday morning session began with welcoming remarks by Grace Gorenflo, Senior Project Consultant for the Center for Sharing Public Health Services. She was followed by Katie Wehr, Project Director at the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, the Center’s funder. Then, Center Co-directors Patrick Libbey and Gianfranco Pezzino offered opening comments.

The morning was highlighted by two nationally-recognized keynote speakers. Ron Carlee, International City/County Management Association (ICMA), spoke on the topic of Creating and Sharing Knowledge: Getting the Most from the SSLC. Carlee said that a vibrant and synergistic learning community is built on its members’ active commitment to sharing knowledge, experiences and perspectives across different organizations and sectors. He urged conference participants to focus on how individual members can most effectively contribute. See a video of his presentation.

Then Justeen Hyde, Institute for Community Health, outlined Factors for Success: What the Literature Tells Us. Hyde said that the existing evidence base can inform strategies and decisions regarding activities to explore, implement and/or improve CJS arrangements. Her speech reviewed research findings that describe factors attributed by policymakers and public health officials to successful CJS efforts. See a video of her presentation. Download the slideshow used in the presentation (PDF), Cross-Jurisdictional Service Sharing: What Makes it Work?

A large portion of the conference involved hearing from site participants. Site team leaders participated in a variety of panel discussions on topics from Setting the Stage and Managing the Effort to What the SSLC Experience Tells Us.

At the end of the conference, many participants said the event gave their teams a chance to rethink and redefine their goals. Site team leaders participated in video interviews at the conference which captured a synopsis of each project, what each team hopes to accomplish and where each team anticipates challenges. You can view those individual interviews and learn more about the individual site projects by visiting the Funded Sites tab at PHSharing.org.
