Introduction to the VHMA Organizational Diagnosis and Design Toolkit
Today's veterinary organizations face many challenges, some of which are not new but old problems that continue or worsen because the root cause of the problem has not been addressed; instead, bandage solutions have been applied, masking the symptoms and exacerbating the underlying problem.
With this webinar, the VHMA is pleased to announce the launch of a new toolkit, The Organizational Diagnosis and Design Toolkit, that provides leaders of veterinary organizations with a practical and effective approach to understanding the root causes of organizational problems and equips them with the necessary tools to find effective solutions.
Nate Thompson will provide a step-by-step guide highlighting key questions and examples through the toolkit. Attendees will learn how a systematic approach can be used to improve how the work gets done in our organizations for better outcomes.
