The National Institute for Health Research Leadership Programme: An evaluation of programme progress and delivery – RAND – 2012

by Molly Morgan Jones, Watu Wamae, Caroline Viola Fry, Tom Kennie, Joanna Chataway

“RAND Europe evaluated the National Institute for Health Research Leadership Programme in an effort to help the English Department of Health consider the extent to which the programme has helped to foster NIHR’s aims, extract lessons for the future, and develop plans for the next phase of the leadership programme. Successful delivery of high-quality health research requires not only an effective research base, but also a system of leadership supporting it. However, research leaders are not often given the opportunity, nor do they have the time, to attend formal leadership or management training programmes. This is unfortunate because research has shown that leadership training can have a hugely beneficial effect on an organisation. Therefore, the evaluation has a particular interest in understanding the role of the programme as a science policy intervention and will use its expertise in science policy analysis to consider this element alongside other, more traditional, measures of evaluation.”
