Value Networks and the Complex World of Healthcare
Guests: Verna Allee and Daniel Pesut
Healthcare is one of the industries facing the "complexity stretch." At a strategic level leaders must make rapid adjustments and quickly make sense of complex environment. They must engage diverse stakeholders in collaborative processes to translate strategy into action. They must creative deploy and allocate resource to align social networks with business processes. And they must do all this while monitoring multiple variables that affect performance while conforming to regulations and standards. It is not a cliché to say that leadership and managing in healthcare is very different today. It requires a different mindset, skill set, and tool sets. Innovative organizations are meeting this challenge utilizing social networks, collaborative processes and new ways of modeling business activities.
Value Network modeling provides a way to model and manage both formal and informal interactions for powerful breakthroughs to lower costs, reduce risk, and more quickly achieve business objectives. Going beyond social networks, the value network perspective links network transactions directly to financial performance and intellectual capital formation. Learn how value network modeling and analytics can achieve stunning increases in productivity, improve collaboration and knowledge sharing, optimize complex work activities, predict business and workflow performance and bring greater coherence to complex work environments.
