Editorial Staff

Aim/Client Goals for Engagement

HealthLinx’ aim was to use a VP Supply Chain project management solution designed to manage the Big Four Threats to Success™ in order to acquire a Permanent Leader within a defined timeline, and ultimately to improve outcomes.

Process

Following an initial conversation with the client, the HealthLinx Permanent Leadership Acquisition Process (PL120) was implemented in order to remove existing threats and acquire a quality Permanent Leader within 120 days.

HealthLinx always performs a diagnostic assessment, sets realistic expectations, and then uses its proven processes and best practices. Using this highly prescriptive process, all levels of the organization were engaged to develop and then execute the project plan.

Key Takeaways/Lessons Learned

  1. Locating leaders with an understanding of the area and culture was key in the Active Market Recruitment phase; a timeline of 14 days for this phase, which is a HealthLinx Best Practice.
  2. Titling of position “VP” and scope definition was much more attractive to most leaders
  3. Understanding the community and needs of the organization was key to sourcing the best available leaders who had comprehensive understanding of the organization and community culture.
  4. Proactive collaborative project management was key to placing the leader as quickly as possible.
