An Eye on Transformation and Leadership
Shlomit Schaal, MD, PhD

University of Massachusetts Medical School
Many new leaders and executives find themselves at some point in their careers faced with the challenge of leading a strategically critical, highly visible transformation process. The department needs to move in a new direction, innovations must be accelerated, costs must be reduced, new services must be established, or competitive positioning can be strengthened. Whatever the driver, the initiatives born from strategic calls to action will always change the status quo, and sometimes they will transform the organization in very significant ways. Designing and executing a strategic change or transformation program to realize mission-critical business objectives isn’t simple, familiar or easy, yet often times leaders with no previous experience leading big change are put in charge, especially in the medical field. Critical leadership skills are going to be discussed, and culture change challenges will be outlined.
