PIEs from the ground up - further links for Chapter 6

Chapter 6: Introducing the PIE approach in services

There are pages here reflecting all the key sections of this chapter:

  • General advice : HERE
  • What's the Big Idea?: HERE
  • A single framework: HERE
  • Where did it all come from?: HERE
  • What psychology makes for a PIE?: HERE
  • What is an environment?: HERE
  • Can a service be a little bit PIE’d?: HERE
  • Pick and mix: COMING SOON
  • Welcoming challenges: HERE
  • Housing First, TIC and PIEs: HERE and HERE
  • Appreciating strengths: HERE
  • Other questions: HERE
  • Useful questions’ (The Pizazz Handbook): HERE


Note that in the spirit of welcoming questions, there are a number of pages that echo and reenforce the points made here. The forums, of course (HERE), are intended specifically to allow members - and any others - to raise questions in practical application.

In addition, there are many recordings of earlier conversations where questions have been raised, and a selection of these can be found on one page of the Resources Hub, with the title of ‘Conversations’ :  HERE

NB: Otherwise, the obvious place to start to begin digging a little deeper into the ideas of a PIE – and some of the broader thinking behind it – is to go to the PIElink page that is called ‘Digging Deeper’.

From here you can immediately follow these links, and others links we have suggested, to:

  • Is the PIE evolving? (summary) : HERE
  • PIEs 1 - the original account : HERE
  • PIEs 2.0 - the basics : HERE and HERE
  • Where are relationships in PIEs 2.0? : HERE, HERE and HERE
  • PIEs 3 - the case for and against? : HERE


NB: For those that really want to ‘look under the bonnet’, you might want to explore an area that we don’t otherwise make too prominent. In a link on the ‘Digging deeper’ page, here you will find………….

  • Digging deeper still : HERE

This will take you ‘behind the scenes’, to see where and how we are continuing to discuss and take further the point and the principles and practice of PIEs, and design issues and dilemmas in the development of the website itself. See Chapter 7 for more.
