Most organisations want to engage new audiences and embrace new ideas, but often work behind closed doors. The biggest transformational challenge facing health and care is the move towards a transparent way of working.

Working out loud provides a low-cost method to share your work as it develops with a wider community; narrating both failures and success. It will increase your network and knowledge of your work.

The example of producing a film in partnership with the Manchester Academic Health Science Centre  Cancer Domain clearly demonstrates. Gow is explicit about challenges of film production and mistakes made. However it’s not so much about the finished product – although the film has raised significant interest, but the process using working out loud to connect with new ideas. To follow projects being developed in this open way and to contribute follow the hashtag #WOL.
