There are numerous management resources available but it can be difficult find what’s right for you. Here are a few that that we have found useful.

The Knowledge Network is the national knowledge management platform for health and social care in Scotland. It is developed and maintained by the Knowledge Services group at NHS Education for Scotland. The Leadership and Management section will be of particular interest.

The Good Practice pages (also accessible from The Knowledge Network) offer a wide range of ‘bite-size’ learning opportunities (often less than 10 mins). Typically they provide hints and tips, templates and models you can use.  To access you will need to follow the Good Practice link (may require an Athens account).

Examples include -

  • Learning & Development – Top tips for coaching (4 mins)
  • HR – 5 things managers can do right now (3 mins)
  • Leadership & Strategy - How to answer questions about change (5 mins)
  • Managing people - Delivering feedback (10 mins), How to delegate (6 mins)
  • Personal skills - Building self confidence (3 mins)      
  • Projects & Operations - Introduction to continuous improvement (5 mins)
