Boston, MA (PRWEB) November 03, 2014
In the face of the current global Ebola outbreak, government and public health agencies tasked with providing guidelines that protect both healthcare workers and the general public are being pressured to provide coherent strategies and clear answers in a timely manner.
In response to the chaos and disorder of the Ebola crisis Dr. Dean M. Schroeder and Dr. Alan G. Robinson, co-authors of The Idea-Driven Organization, have penned an insightful analysis of government shortcomings. Their latest blog post proposes actionable advice that will equip governments to navigate similar crises in the future.
Backed with years of experience consulting government agencies from around the world, Dr. Schroeder and Dr. Robinson make a firm case for the necessity of harnessing ideas from front-line employees. “Had the CDC and other organizations put in an idea-driven system two years ago,” Dr. Robinson writes, “they would be a lot higher performing and more equipped to address this crisis.”
Throughout their post, Dr. Schroeder and Dr. Robinson establish the need for government reform stemming from front-line employees. They assess both the obvious need for change that the Ebola outbreak presented and how an idea-driven framework is crucial for overcoming future crises.
“Harnessing frontline workers is one of the most crucial tools we need to correct inefficiencies and prepare to better address health crises like this in the future,” Dr. Schroeder comments, “We cannot keep things as they are.”
In the midst of a global community concerned with government inefficiencies--and their fatal consequences--Dr. Robinson and Dr. Schroeder have innovated and visualized a framework that can begin to face government agencies’ issues head on.
