7 minute briefings

7 minute briefings are based on a technique that supports learning.

Reading and learning for seven minutes is manageable in most services. Learning is reported more memorable as it is simple and not clouded by other issues and pressures.  Their brief duration mean they hold people’s attention, as well as giving managers something tangible to share with their staff.

The briefings will not provide all the answers in 7 minutes, but it is hoped that they will act as a catalyst to help individuals, teams and their managers to reflect on practice and systems. The expectation is that they include additional resources and hyperlinks that support further learning if required.

Due to the increasing pressures on services, it can be difficult to release staff to attend training. These briefings are a tool to encourage continuous learning and maintain a skilled workforce.
