An ode to projects
Projects are how organizations change.
A project is a temporary endeavor to produce something. Something that produces a tangible change in the way an organization does something.
The more projects an organization starts and finishes, the more change that is produced.
Demands on today’s healthcare delivery providers are marked by shifting external forces, rapid technology adoption, required cross-function collaboration, pursuit of new competencies, known knowns, unknown knowns, yes — even unknown unknowns, and probably a few others.
It’s a foggy future. Projects are how organizations navigate to it.
Projects are how an organization creates, how an organization adapts, how an organization eliminates. David Cleland, hailed as the father of project management, said it well, “Projects provide an organizational focus for conceptualizing, designing, and creating new or improving products, services, and organizational processes.”
Projects are how an organization gets things done. Projects are how an organization executes. Projects are how an organization transforms.
Projects are the most important pursuit of every healthcare delivery organization.

How we built a solution that saved money and lives

This is what we hear when we get on the phone with healthcare executives
“This project needed to be done yesterday.” - VP, Strategy and Business Development
Perhaps the IT department queue is too long, a deadline is looming, or the need to innovate requires a fresh perspective. We provide technology, healthcare knowledge, and/or implementation resources for a project team.
“We struggle getting projects implemented.” - Chief Innovation Officer
Project challenges delay strategy implementation, frustrate project team members, and cause other challenges. We prepare a project team for a specific project while imparting project delivery skills to team members.
“We have to get it right this time.” - SVP of System Transformation
It can be difficult for technology vendors and project teams to mesh. It’s even worse when you discover the consultant doesn’t know healthcare delivery. We’ll articulate technology requirements, document business workflow, and partner with the project team to vet and/or manage vendor partners.
