Blog Hopping Tour pulls into the Loosely Speaking depot

Loosely Speaking

Where do they hang out to learn or gather information? I often recommend VAs keep up with professional development but meet with resistance, usually over cost or time. For many, there is a misconception that VAs can learn all they need by asking questions on forums and listservs. OIVAC is in its 5th year, and with so many educational opportunities surfacing each year, sometimes it’s difficult to differentiate one learning opportunity from another.

Public Shared Services Design: the service cost and quality balancing act

BioTeams

This method for shared services design is definitely cost-led but also takes into account both the adequacy of service of the best cost performer and also any regional environmental differentiating factors between the different councils. I believe it achieves the best compromise possible between sharing around cost of service versus quality of service. The method, which I briefly overview below, reduces this risk by deferring the quality debate until the cost numbers are in.
