Organising Projects

Link projects to your organisational structure to help staff find them and ensure effective governance and reporting

With so much improvement work taking place across your organisation, or across the organisations you are working with, its crucial you can easily organise projects so they can be tracked and reported appropriately. Watch our overview video to see the different ways Life QI can be used to organise your Quality Improvement work. 

 

Organising and categorising projects - 02

To help you with this we have listed out a few ways that the use of Groups can be a helpful way to organise your Quality Improvement work.

Using Groups to identify Directorates, Divisions, Departments

Groups can be used to help collate the people and improvement work taking place within a specific area of your organisation (e.g. a Directorate, Division, Department).

When a new project starts within a particular department, the relevant department Group can be added to the project. This will then give the organisation sight of which projects are taking place within each Department, how many there are and how they are progressing.

You can also add staff to their relevant department Group to make access to their department's projects easier, as well as providing the organisation/core QI team sight of how many people from each department are using Life QI.

The Group profile page (accessed in the Groups module) provides staff quick access to who is working in that group, what projects are taking place, as well as access to any group discussion threads.

In addition to the Group profile page you can setup Analytics for the Group to get key metrics and intelligence on improvement activity taking place within the Group on a dashboard. Read about creating an Analytics dashboard.

Using Groups to organise related projects from multiple organisations

Groups can also be collate related projects taking place as part of an initiative/collaborative, even if those projects span more than one organisation.

All the projects that are part of the initiative/collaborative can invite the Group to be a member of the project, doing so will provide the Group, and all its users sight of all the projects.

The Group profile page (accessed in the Groups module) provides staff quick access to who is working in that group, what projects are taking place, as well as access to any group discussion threads.

In addition to the Group profile page you can setup Analytics for the Group to get key metrics and intelligence on improvement activity taking place within the Group on a dashboard. Read about creating an Analytics dashboard.
