Zest Consulting
Re-mapping Health and Wellbeing
Successful programme management is built on sound tools and techniques. Here at Zest the range of knowledge within our team caters for just about any type of need - it's our approach in getting to know your organisation, it's culture and understanding the outcomes you are hoping for that's the key to our success.

Within the leisure industry there is a tendency for Health and Wellbeing Services, for example, Exercise on Referral, Community Physical Activity and Weight Management Schemes to be delivered at a site level. This can often lead to an under valuation of the organisations overall Health and Wellbeing strategy. Operationally, inconsistent delivery mechanisms and processes can further impact the overall strategy and at the same time provide a confusing entry point for the customer and stakeholders, such as referring professionals and funders.

We build on the idea of the cultural web to show how mapping culture in services can provide an understanding of barriers to change; and identifying the re-mapping required to deliver your Health and Wellbeing Services at their most efficient, highlighting ways of managing strategic change.

We'll provide:
  1. Clarity on budgets, timelines and outcomes.
  2. A passion for collaboration, from your management team driven through to key front-line staff.
  3. A sense of ownership and treat it as our own.
