Accelerate: Preparing leaders for change

We are delighted to be launching the third year of our Accelerate programme – supporting leaders of adult social care to manage complex change in a way which engages their organisation, is results driven and sustainable.

ADASS is committed to supporting our members with their professional development. Delivered in partnership with Newton, the Accelerate programme gives senior leaders the opportunity to rapidly develop their capability to deliver effective strategic and operational change.

Building on the success of 2019, we will also be focusing on some of the specific challenges leaders in adult social care are facing – how to make the best use of existing resources, the opportunities and risks of integration, change leadership and managing key stakeholders through change.

The programme, which involves four short residential modules over a 10 month period, starts in 2020.
