The following blog post is written by our friends at Open Minds. Open Minds is a Behavioral Health Market Research and Management Consulting firm based out of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. They specialize in the health and human service sector to serve individuals with the mission of providing providers and payer organizations the resources and knowledge to best inform their practice. They believe that by helping organizations in the field make better, more informed, decisions, they will have the means necessary to improve services to those individuals with the most chronic complex needs.
Greetings from OPEN MINDS! I want to take a moment to introduce a new executive education opportunity. The Strategic Sustainability Learning Collaborative has been specifically designed for executives of small to medium size provider organizations. This 12-month, web based program provides an affordable method to gain the tools and insights needed for sustainability in today’s changing health and human services environment. Working together with OPEN MINDS Senior Associates, up to 30 executives from across the country will address the following learning objectives:
- Understand the drivers of current health and behavioral health market change
- Assess the ever changing needs of consumers and requirements of funders in order to build effective strategy
- Develop an organizational competency portfolio for your organization and create a plan to address any deficiencies
- Prepare your organization to effectively respond to environmental changes through scenario-based planning
- Understand the framework for organizational strategic planning required to achieve continued sustainability
OPEN MINDS recognizes that in the current human services landscape, managed care and alternative payment models are redefining the “optimal” provider organization size, driving M&A and other affiliations, and disrupting the market.
With over 25 years of human services executive leadership experience, I am excited to coordinate this new Learning Collaborative.
Whether you are a current CEO, member of the Executive Team, or a candidate for a future C-Suite role, the OPEN MINDS Strategic Sustainability Learning Collaborative will provide you the skill sets necessary to develop and implement an organizational strategic sustainability plan to re-position your organization in an ever changing external environment. There are only a few slots left! More information and enrollment forms may be found at:
You may also contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to discuss enrollment further. I look forward to working with you and/or members of your executive team in this unique and affordable professional development opportunity.
