2019–2020 CEO Special Sessions

Day 1

This afternoon session is focused on the future of the health care industry. We take a global outlook on where health care is going, how individual health care organisations can adapt to thrive in that future, and describe the key pillars of a transition plan to that future state.

1:00 p.m. » State of the Health Care Industry

  • Signal vs. noise: What do recent successes—and failures—in health care disruption and innovation reveal about the future direction of the industry?
  • Next-generation health care businesses: what kinds of health care organisations lead the future of health care? How do they interact with each other? What do they do differently than today?
  • Shortlist of critical moves: What incremental steps can my organisation take to set us up for the future while ensuring we’re succeeding today?
  • Impartial self-assessment: What competencies—as an organisation—are we missing? What does best-in-class performance look like and what is the blueprint to building them?

5:00 p.m. » Adjournment and reception

Day 2

A digital strategy is one of those key transition steps organisations need to take to establish the health care organisation of the future. But “digital” means everything and nothing. And very rarely is the subject targeted for a CEO audience. We’ll look at what it means to be digital, how it can enable enterprise-level strategies, and the role of the CEO in making that happen.

9:00 a.m. » From Data to Decisions: The CEO’s role in a digital strategy

  • Beyond the hype: What does data and digital technology mean for strategy? How do I as an executive establish what is real when vendors talk about digital?
  • Acquisition vs. Adoption: What is preventing us from maximising existing and future digital technology? Is it a problem of ideas or execution?
  • The CEO’s role: What is my role as a CEO in digital strategy? With only a few, precious hours, where do I invest effort?
  • Personalised Gap Analysis: What competencies—as an organization—are we lacking? What does best-in-class digital adoption look like and what can we do to improve?
