Project Managing Innovation

Organizations Must Innovate

Successful organizations select, implement and optimize projects helping improve how they:

  • Run
  • Grow
  • Transform

Successfully identifying and completing these projects requires...

1: Project Management

We are project managers.

And our experience tells us that using project management methods alone is like juggling with one hand.

This is especially difficult for projects needing...

2: Information Technology (IT) Management

Our clients, like many organizations, need new systems to improve the way they deliver services.

However, the majority of IT projects fail, even when using Project and IT Management disciplines together.

So we add...

3: Change Management

Managing change means helping stakeholders adopt innovation.

Projects succeed by focusing on the process, product and people.

So we...

4: Integrate the Disciplines

We combine Project, IT and Change Management into a single, proven methodology.

Our software ProIntegrate™ supports this methodology throughout the project lifecycle.

The Perils of Prevention Primacy

When prevention hardly works, establishing ineffective prevention protections, creating and running compliance-monitoring entities, and monitoring providers and payers are especially troubling. While we must punish cyber criminals, it is critical to focus our efforts on protecting and helping victims. This makes far more sense than continuing to pay exorbitant amounts

Folding in the Internet of Things (IOT)

Technology innovation doubtlessly enables us to provide more data, in real time, at the point of clinical decision-making. Until now, most of this innovation is “internal” HIT and its associated data created in our care delivery organizations, like lab test results, imaging studies or written impressions of a physician’s clinical

The Parable of the Broken Window

Despite our best efforts to the contrary, we all know, expect and often dread unintended consequences associated with Health Information Technology (HIT). The French economist Frédéric Bastiat offers a classic example of our experience with these consequences in his “broken window” parable that goes like this: A shopkeeper's son accidentally breaks

How Can Outsiders Help?

What are some key health care benefits we can reap from diverse expert and outsider HIT team membership? To begin with, widening the diversity of HIT team membership helps to overcome Not Invented Here (NIH) syndrome. Outsider team members successfully contributing fresh solutions erode the NIH prejudice favoring “our own”

Does True Innovation Require Domain Expertise?

It is a common belief that true innovation requires domain expertise. Malcolm Gladwell, the author of Outliers: The Story of Success, says it takes 10,000 hours of practice to become expert in any given domain. He indicates that the process of becoming an expert produces truly exceptional people and ideas.

The Blind Men and the Elephant

Most of you are familiar with the “blind men and the elephant” parable. Jainism, one of the world’s oldest religions, is often credited as its originator. In the Jain version, six blind men describe an elephant by touching its different body parts. One man touches a leg, a second a
