Strategic and Business Planning
I work with hospitals, health systems, group practices and various other organizations to help them develop strategic plans that provide direction towards the future. The emphasis is on helping the organization accurately assess its situation, prioritize its limited resources, and determine its course of action. A typical engagement starts with data collection, interviews and focus groups of different entities and stakeholders. This information is compiled, aggregated and presented to the planning team. At the planning retreat, various facilitation tools are used to identify strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats. Based on these analyses, the mission, vision and values of the organization are reviewed and revised as needed. Goals and strategies that will help the organization get closer to its vision are formulated, and specific action plans are developed.
