This is the first in an ongoing series of conversations with Mike Wagner, the Advisory Board’s chief teaching officer. Mike discusses why the quality of an organization’s talent is a critical distinction between success and failure. Specifically, investing in people enables an organization to effectively respond to the myriad challenges of reform. Mike shares three key insights on how to cultivate a more collaborative medical staff, how to effectively engage your frontline to lead change initiatives and how you can use talent development efforts to achieve meaningful, measurable performance gains.
