Culture: The Force Behind Strategy

Examine your organization’s culture to enhance the strategic planning process.

A strategic plan is a roadmap providing long-term direction for the achievement of desired goals and results. Often healthcare organizations’ strategic plans miss the mark because they do not take into account the current culture and fail to design a process that involves the right people, focusing on the right issues, at the right time.

Using an Accountable Care Organization (ACO) as an example, this seminar will help you design a successful strategic planning process.

You'll Learn:

  • Examine your organization’s culture and improve its readiness to enhance the strategic planning process.
  • Discuss how culture impacts strategy and provide tools to improve working relationships.
  • Establish a trust-based culture using the “Patient Driven Leadership” method.
  • Identify disconnects between your organization’s strategic planners and implementers.
  • Explore examples of insurance exchanges and ACO strategies that build consensus and support for implementation through the selection of key individuals and best approaches.
