The Mission Driven Health Care Organization: Turning Strategy's Noble Aspirations into Accountability and Action

DATE: Wednesday, April 8, 2015
PLACE: Webinar
TIME: 12:00 Noon to 1:00 p.m. Eastern Time

TOPIC: Somewhat surprisingly, research has shown that when it comes to the major causes of “organizational failure,” only 10% are due to having a poor-to-lousy strategy, whereas 90% stem from an inability to successfully execute an otherwise great strategy. “Strategy execution,” therefore, signifies the greatest risk to every organization’s operations.   In this presentation, Dr. Bart shows leaders of healthcare organizations how they can sharpen their responsibility for strategy execution and thereby more tightly focus the effort, energy and attention of every employee on the achievement of the strategy. Dr. Bart provides a concise, practical roadmap, along with informed guidance (based on 33 years of research, teaching and consulting) on the processes, systems and behaviours that leaders need to better manage and align their organization’s strategy.   This will serve to enhance organizational performance excellence and help minimize the strategic risks in doing so.

SPEAKER: Dr. Chris Bart, FCPA -   CEO of Corporate Missions Inc.
