Transform Existing Planning and Implementation Processes

An Overview of the Webinar Series and Case Study of the MCPHS School of Pharmacy-Boston

Join us as a panel of experienced leaders provide an overview of a systematic approach for getting started on transformation.
Abstract: Join us as a panel of experienced leaders provide an overview of a systematic approach for getting started on transformation. The primary focus will be on how to redirect traditional strategic planning processes into ones that center on transformative and continuously adapting strategies rather than the relatively inflexible plans currently used by most institutions.

Additionally, presenters will describe how to transform existing ineffective approaches for the “implementation” of strategic plans through “orchestration.” This approach weaves together all of the ingredients needed for successful implementation—strong leadership, needed organizational capacity, necessary changes in culture, and measures to assess goal achievement.
