LCB Outcomes Framework 2013-17
County Boards are now expected to work to “Outcomes” over the next funding cycle (2013 – 2017) and as part of the new ECB Cricket Strategy.
As a County Board, we need to be clear and committed to working to “Outcomes”, as part of our delivery of the new ECB Strategy Champion Counties 2014 - 2017. What IMPACT do we want our delivery / programmes / products to have? The IMPACT needs to be based on DEMAND and based on local need.
The England & Wales Cricket Board, England & Wales Cricket Trust and the Recrational Assembly have signed a Memorandum of Understanding between 1st October 2013 – 30th September 2017. This outlines the strategic priorities for County Cricket Boards to deliver within Champion Counties.
The County Network will focus on common strategic priorities that contribute to a single outcome measure to achieve More People / Playing More Frequently / In Teams.
The County Network will focus on three strategic themes to achieve this:
- Recruit new players
- Retention of existing players
- Develop the most talented players
Specifically, the County Network will focus on common impact measures:
- Retention of existing frequent players
- Increased frequency of existing infrequent players
- New Players from specific groups with proven latent demand - 14-16 year olds, South Asian Communities, People with a Disability
Increased retention of players at key transition points:
- School to Further Education
- Further to High Education
- Education to Club and broader community opportunities
- Bringing recently lapsed players back
- Identifying and developing the most talented players
Note - we need Insights (intelligence / knowledge / facts) in deciding our actions.
Bobby Denning, Acting Director for the LCB, said: "Our LCB Outcomes Framework captures our activities and outputs for the County along with our priorities to ensure we recruit people into our game, retain existing players and develop talent.
"Service Outcomes 1-4 outline the impact we want our delivery to have to ensure we have more people, playing more frequently, in teams. Achieving this can only be done by working with all of our cricket network including our Leagues, the County Club and the LCCC Foundation.
"Specific Departments of the LCB will be responsible for delivering against Outcomes with ongoing monitoring and evaluation against each."
