New Resources at Life QI

We're excited to introduce some of our new resources available on our website. This month we put together a useful cheatsheet for improvers who want to extend a successful improvement project across their organisation or scale it up to help them to choose the right direction and give them a useful checklist of what to consider.


We also launched two new pages for those who want to learn more about quality improvement or those who want to get some practical help for their day to day work. Check out our Improvement Hub and Improvement Resources pages for more information.


In April we introduced a new series of blogs talking about Quality Improvement (QI) heroes – those who have inspired people and thinking and set the tone for the amazing quality and improvement science work that goes on today. In the next months we’ll be looking at the people behind improvement science and those individuals who have heavily influenced QI over the years. In the first article, we had a look at Walter A Shewhart - known as the ‘father of statistical process control’.
