    STAR RATING: 4/5

    It is refreshing to find a resource that really does focus on
    meeting the needs of service users – as defined by them,
    writes David Moore. As such, it
    represents a powerful agent for positive change in service planning
    and design.

    This is a very practical resource, developed and produced with and
    by practitioners, and will enable commissioners to develop their
    expertise in strategic commissioning.

    There are five modules: learning about strategic commissioning;
    developing planning capacity information, intelligence and systems;
    commissioning approaches and structure; resources, and developing
    an action plan. There are sample presentations, designed for a wide
    range of stakeholder audiences and issues, complete with
    facilitator notes and a 15-minute video showing the benefits of a
    strategic approach to commissioning.
