Many organisations, including my own are wrestling with the challenge of running their business on two fronts.  One, the formal hierarchy, which is necessary for effective governance, resource deployment and decision making, the other being the network (or networks) which enable the organisation to work at greater speed within what is becoming an ever more complex and multi-dimensional world.” Simon Stevens, NHS England Chief Executive
In recent years there has been a huge increase in networks - interconnected groups or systems focussing on a shared purpose - in just four years networks have helped to elect the first black US president, led to regime change in several Middle Eastern countries, created some of the world’s youngest billionaires and temporarily closed down St Paul’s Cathedral. In the NHS - driven by the need to solve complex issues that have not been solved by traditional organisational models - it is estimated that more than 100,000 networks and over 1,000 specialist networking groups  have emerged and exist, with membership growing at a phenomenal rate on a daily basis.
The challenge for network leadership is how best to “organise” their networks to achieve the right balance between  form and function; to manage the interests, energy of, and relationships with, members; and to effectively maintain momentum and impact.
NHS Improving Quality is working in partnership with the Centre for Innovation in Health Management to develop tools and resources to empower networks to sustain, connect and maximise impact. We recognise that there is no one model to fit all types of network  form and  function; therefore, due to popular demand, we are repeating our very successful webinar which explores how to lead different  forms of networks and hierarchies, outlining what works well in each, and providing  some top leadership tips.
