We had hoped to produce another programme highlight report in September “Brexit – the biggest MSP programme ever” but despite careful monitoring of events, there isn’t any sign of progress towards any of the components of the Programme Brief that we have been waiting for, namely:
- Vision Statement other than Brexit means Brexit, bit of debate around hard v soft Brexit
- Estimates of costs and timetable, except for article 50 will be triggered before March 2017
- Risks, although the mitigation for the plan currency value doesn’t seem to have worked
- Benefits – a totally blank space
In fact, the latest Stakeholder Engagement Strategy appears to be “no running commentary” and “no discussion in Parliament”.
So to help the government we thought it might be useful to have a go at helping with the benefits void by producing a benefits map of one of the outcomes, namely, lower immigration, which you can find here brexit-the-immigration-benefits-map
We have tried to be objective in this map and hopefully helps to illustrate the implications of one of the major pillars of the decision to leave, as neither economists or sociologists much of this is open to debate depending on your perception.

Training is only one element of raising your capability and improving performance, the proof of the pudding is whether the new skills and knowledge is put into action back in the business. A maturity assessment to identify your strengths and weaknesses and using training as a vehicle to underpin improvements is an essential element of the improvement mix.
