What do you mean by improvement capability?


As part of my PhD, I have been investigating how improvement capability is conceptualised in the research literature and by regulatory agencies in healthcare.

As a improvement leader, I realise now, that I used to use this term rather imprecisely, ‘my job is to develop improvement capability’ and so on, yet I’m not sure I really thought about what I meant when I said it.  I perhaps assumed, that everyone I talked to and I had the same view of what it was and what developing improvement capability meant.

Attached in this link http://q.health.org.uk/news-story/developing-improvement-capability/ is a blog on the Q Community website, detailed an element of my research trying to tease out what is meant by improvement capability and what different conceptualisations of improvement capability mean pragmatically for improvement leaders.
