Rethinking Organisations

Authors: Susan Basterfield and Kate Fulton

From the Introduction to the paper:

In 2018, WAiS designed and delivered a program called Rethinking Organisations. The aim of the program was to assist Support Providers to explore alternative organisational theory and practices that could potentially benefit the human services sector.

The program drew on many leading thinkers and many successful organisations globally who have individual development and autonomy at their heart. We also drew on the experiences of the participating organisations who all strive to do better with the resources they have, to ultimately create working places that support all employees to do their best work.

This resource aims to share some of the learning, both the theory and the practices, that the participating organisations explored.
