Dean Cikins, a senior client executive with GE Healthcare, will be speaking in Worrell 3209 on Thursday, Nov. 4, at 4 pm, about "The Key to Effective Change."
A synopsis: Process improvements drive financial and patient care results, but do they have to take so long? A single project can take months. And why is change so stressful? Making change last seems like a constant uphill struggle. There must be a way to finish projects faster and show people how new processes enhance patient service and make work life better. Learn about General Electric’s best practice for making change stick.
This should be of interest to students with operations, change management and/or healthcare interests. Dean has presented the GE Healthcare approach to process improvement and change culture management to a variety of groups, and plans for bring colleagues from GE Healthcare to interact with attendees. They will stay after his lecture to take questions and interact with students. The Deaconlink registration will be helpful but is not required for attendance.
