“To have strategists as strong as these in our Leadership Circle working alongside of us to advance the practice of strategic planning is a tremendous asset,” said strategicplanningMD founder and Chief Executive Officer Scott Regan. “Developing and executing meaningful plans is becoming critical in healthcare, and we have to constantly evolve the software tools and technologies to stay ahead of the rapid change curve healthcare organizations are riding. By engaging some of the country’s leading practitioners and thought leaders will enable us to continually drive excellence through innovation and performance.”
Members of the Leadership Circle will serve in an advisory capacity, providing crucial insight, guidance, and direction to strategicplanningMD’s executive management team for future versions of its strategic planning software and related consulting services. The ultimate goal of the Leadership Circle is to discover new methods and tools for plan development, execution, monitoring, and tracking that can be delivered through the use of the company’s Web-based automation and services.
“The Leadership Circle will be on the cutting edge,” Regan said. “They will invent new and significant ways for identifying strategic opportunities, design new models for planning, and construct new tools for driving accountability. It is imperative that we deliver on the collective brainpower and energy that this group of strategists represent and map a bold new course of action.”
The Leadership Circle’s first innovation event is being scheduled for late May at the Ritz-Carlton Lodge at Reynolds Plantation on Lake Oconee, Georgia.
