Welcome to the Institute for Continuous Improvement in Public Services (ICiPS) Annual Conference & Awards 2020.
ICiPS has shaped Continuous Improvement (CI) into a professional standard recognised as a key management & leadership skill and model for our time.
Now in its 8th year the ICiPS National Conference & Awards has long been at the forefront of understanding that the development of a CI culture is an essential leadership and management capability for success in modern organisations.
Who are your professional architects of creative reform? Who leads on CI for you and what professional standard of experience makes change happen?
CI 2020 will present participants with a carefully curated set of insights and networking opportunities.
Expert speakers including Writer, Broadcaster and Policy Adviser to both the UK and Australian Prime Ministers, John McTernan will explore:
- Developing a CI culture by adopting a holistic approach across core disciplines including HR, procurement, and finance as well as benchmarking success against the best in the sector
- Key leadership skills and insight on building a CI culture in your organisation
- New thinking on engaging staff and people in a commitment to CI; examining insights into people engagement and behaviour change
- Ensuring professional standards in CI

Continuous Improvement applies to all organisations and we at ICiPS are no exception.
As such for 2020 we have introduced new ways of participating in our annual conference to help you save time and money, all whilst reducing the environmental impact of conference participation.
We have introduced LIVE networking hubs in Manchester, Birmingham, Leeds and Bristol where you can watch a facilitated live stream of the conference whilst networking and discussing the issues raised with regional peers.
Licences are also available for both individuals and organisations offering both live and on demand access to the conference presentations online. All the content, none of the hassle.
Find out more about these options and our ambition for Continuous Improvement in Conferencing.
Thank you for your time, we look forward to seeing you at Continuous Improvement 2020.
