Disruption Ahead
Can you think of ways in which your organization or other healthcare organizations are disrupting established models to prepare for the changes in healthcare? As Dr. Klasko told me, when you ask healthcare leaders whether they expect their organizations to be totally different 10 years from now, they all say yes. But when you ask whether they are DOING anything differently this year or next year, the answer is NO. That leaves them eight years to totally transform their organization, often times organizations that are very large and very complex.

Re: Disruption Ahead
That's the Innovator's Dilemma - established organizations are often full of people who see the change coming, but all the incentives are aligned against change, and they get to watch others execute on their own best plans.

Re: Disruption Ahead
Another challenge: Some people in leadership positions may not be in these positions within 10 years because they plan to leave. Do they really want to tackle these big, disruptive issues -- issues that will probably cause a lot of headaches, people to leave, and many sleepless nights -- when they can ride the tide until retirement in five, six years? It's certainly understandable that they want to leave on a current high note rather than deal with the unexpected... This is where a strong, innovative board should come into play.
