Report of discussion event – 2 February 2021 (on Zoom)
ESS has been talking about outcomes since we came into existence in 2005. We brought together 21 friends (see annex) who mostly agree about outcomes to:
- discuss what is getting in the way of an outcomes focus –the alternative narratives –and why
- identify what can be done to reduce the influence of the alternative narratives, where appropriate
- come up with some ideas for next steps.
Our suggested outcome for the session was that participants would have a greater understanding of how to improve a focus on outcomes. This report gives a brief summary of our discussions and set out some suggested next steps.
