FEEDBACK FOR DSC's NDIS forums

Know that you should have read the NDIS Act but have not had the time? In this series, Sara Gingold explores the Sections that all providers need to know, starting with everybody's favourite - reasonable and necessary.

After 3.5 years of NDIS transition, Rob Woolley looks back on what he would have done differently if he had his time again.
What is the right culture for the NDIS, a quasi-marketplace with disruptive service models and ad hoc decision making? Roland and Vanessa outline the 6 crucial pieces of the puzzle.
Vanessa and Roland examine how to avoid going broke ‘NDIS style’ through a fundamental rethink of the way we do business.
The Victorian State Government has developed an interim practice advice to support Victorian Health and Aged Care services in preparedness for and throughout transition to the NDIS. This is a great resource for organisations and professionals in these spaces to understand the NDIS and its interface with Health & Aged Care.
Rob Woolley questions many organisations' approaches to service design, delivery and systems within the seismic change the NDIS will bring.
These resources provide an overview of the critical factors that should be influences business decisions for DSPs. For organisations seeking some solid guidance on commercialising services, this is a great place to start.
Change management is a critical issue for services providers. Combating the feelings of fear and confusion amongst staff is vital for ensuring service delivery standards remain high. One of the tools in the QLD Government’s recently created NDIS toolkit focuses on readying clients for change.
