SUNY Global Center, 116 E 55th St, New York, NY 10022, USA
Organizations talk about being disruptive – or being disrupted – and that they have to become more innovative to compete in the modern “real-time” marketplace. But scant few organizations understand that being prepared, being in a state of readiness, is critical to their being successful – and that there is great peril without having or even understanding their organizational capacity and capabilities. Students will learn from Joseph Paris about the challenges facing organizations today and the approaches necessary to be successful. All students will receive a copy of Paris’ recently released book, “State of Readiness, Operational Excellence as Precursor to becoming the High-Performance Organization.” RSVP to hornbeck@binghamton.edu to attend.
12:00pm - 3:00pm
SUNY Global Center, 116 E 55th St, New York, NY 10022, USA

The purpose of this course is to introduce you to proven techniques to find breakthrough solutions to the complex problems faced by the Healthcare industry. Design thinking focuses on experiential design, in that a strong emphasis is placed on the end-user, or patient, experiences. This methodology is applicable in variety of health care settings, especially for healthcare service providers; including leaders, marketing and strategy professionals. The Design Thinking approach is used to collaborate, innovate and create problem-solving capabilities within all healthcare organizations. You will learn how to bring together different voices, perspectives, and lenses in health services design and innovation. Moreover, as more healthcare professionals embrace design thinking, you will leverage a deeper understanding of patients to achieve better clinical outcomes, improve patient experience and lower costs.
