The project is worth €2,091,513 and will run from May 2016-May 2019, according to details released by the HSE under Freedom of Information (FoI) legislation. The project requestor was HSE National HR Director Ms Rosarii Mannion.
Asked about this award, a HSE spokesperson said it was committed to delivering “high quality, safe healthcare to our service users, communities and the wider population”.
The spokesperson added that the HSE’s People Strategy 2015-2018 had been developed to “focus on providing a cohesive framework to lead, manage, and develop the contribution of all staff in an environment that is conducive to learning and wellbeing.
“It is focussed on the future needs of the service, on meeting the workforce demands and on attracting and retaining high calibre staff. One of the people management priorities targeted for action is leadership development.”
According to the spokesperson, the aims of the leadership programme are to deliver a flagship model for leadership development and training across the HSE.
“The effectiveness of the programme is demonstrated by the design, development, and delivery of an overall suite of programmes to support leadership development across the Irish health sector.”
Despite repeated requests over several weeks, the HSE did not provide further details on the specific support being provided by KPMG.
According to the HSE National Service Plan 2016, its corporate “high-level actions” include developing a “leadership and management development strategy and delivery plan” aligned with the People Strategy and creating a “national leadership development academy” comprising leaders from across the system to “lead, influence, and develop leadership practice and succession management”.
