Turn Improvement Insights into Proposals

Leaders at all levels of the organization are looking at data day in and day out to make decisions. This puts them in the best place to see patterns — patterns that, when coupled with their domain expertise, lead to the identification of improvement opportunities and the development of proposals. While many decision makers are skilled in their current job, new pressures, new tools, and more sophisticated data sets require leaders who:

  1. Value and access data
  2. Interpret and analyze data
  3. Present data
  4. Propose and present improvements

Our goal is to provide decision makers with specific “walkaway” skills so they can identify improvement opportunities and turn these insights into improvement proposals with the following services:

  • Individual competency assessments
  • Personalized and in-person learning experiences

Individual Competency Assessments

The individual assessment provides specific insights into the competency strength of each decision maker and enables the design of a personalized learning plan for each leader to build the needed competencies.

Personalized and In-person Learning Experiences

Our Decision Maker training is available in virtual and in-person formats. The in-person training is a great way to level set the decision makers in your organization, while the virtual format provides a more personalized learning experience. If you are unsure which format will work best for your leaders, we can start with the assessment and plan the training approach based on overall assessment results.

Team-based Experiential Learning

In Making Decisions with Data, Health Catalyst experts guide leaders through an immersive, hands-on, full-day session where they will learn to take on a new mindset and behaviors that, when coupled with data-driven improvement methods, result in meaningful and sustainable improvements.

Specifically, we’ll cover:

  • Why a single data point rarely tells the whole story
  • How to avoid making big decisions based on partial information
  • Why even the best data can’t give you sustained outcomes improvements if there isn’t a culture of improvement

By the end of this course, you will:

  • Use run charts and control charts to understand variation
  • Evaluate processes through a family of measures
  • Learn what polarities are (think: quality and cost), how they impact decision making, and how to manage them
  • Recognize the need for both technical and adaptive leadership
  • Utilize the stakeholder assessment tool to continuously evaluate and manage stakeholder needs
