Make It Happen
IN THIS SUMMARY
The failure to execute is a common problem in healthcare. Faced with a rapidly changing business environment, many progressive healthcare delivery organizations are now striving to become “high performance” health systems, requiring dramatic changes. The systems that support the effective execution of strategy can be used to successfully manage healthcare delivery organizations. In Make It Happen, the author suggests that effective execution is based on systems thinking, data-driven decision making, and respect and support for an organization’s people. Every organization has data and people, which are the foundations for execution. For effective execution to occur these assets must be integrated with the business tools of strategy development, project management, and embedding systems.
