THE ONLY WAY TO DO YOUR QIP!

Welcome to the new world of Quality Improvement Planning in your service!

Are you sick of your QIP? 

Do you keep writing 'QIP' on your to-do list then ignoring it? 

Do you feel nervous about the Exceeding Themes and how you will demonstrate these? 

Do you feel frustrated with your team because they don't participate or contribute to the QIP? 

Do you HATE the optional Template that is available? 

If so, then PowerQIPing is for you! 

The Department in ACT said this is the best QIP they have seen. 

A consultant from another organisation said they think everyone should be doing their QIP like this... 

Get on board and start LOVING your QIP! This Template and the PowerQIPing Model By Hourglass Consultancy will tap into your passion and let you truly SHOWCASE the amazing work you do!
