Accelerating your organisation or partnership’s collaborative transformation ambitions through skilled, knowledgeable, external facilitation.

Collaborative transformation is a co-creative process. It works best when leaders have ‘safe spaces’ where they can build trust, find common purpose and reach consensus on how they lead the transformation together.

We provide highly skilled, professional facilitation that manages this process, enabling the leaders to focus on the strategic task at hand.

All our high level facilitation interventions are bespoke, each designed to secure the outcomes sought by the system leaders, enabling them to recalibrate both the DEAL and RELATIONSHIP aspects of their partnerships.

In addition, we are skilled at creating safe, innovative and creative spaces where teams of specialists from across the public sector come together to co-design new services, develop new ways of working and address ‘wicked issues’ in a more holistic and evidenced based way. We call our approach Collaborative Incubation. It provides a common change management framework embracing initiation, incubation and implementation that enables organisations to align their organisational transformation ambitions with wider system or place-based goals.

We have delivered these for local authorities (placed based partnerships and devolution deals), for health and social care system partnerships (Better Care partnerships), for blue light partnerships (bringing police and fire services together) and for higher education partnerships.

Here is what some of our clients say...

The work of SSA has improved alignment between our Council strategy and our transformation plans; particularly the distinction between working “on the business” and “in the business” which has been welcomed by elected members as a way to work in a more strategic way. I have found SSA to be highly credible with senior managers and elected members based on their extensive knowledge of the public sector and their professional approach to training and facilitation. I am pleased to recommend SSA to you without reservation.

Robert O’Reilly
Head of Human Resources, West Berkshire Council

Primary Care in our locality is going through some significant changes, transforming to ensure that they can face tomorrow challenges not just yesterdays. Manny and SSA have played a key role in supporting the people and organisations undertaking this journey. Their knowledge, professionalism & dedication have helped us understand our challenges, shape our vision and move forwards at a far greater pace than if we had tried it on our own.
