Overview

Supply chain leaders are being charged with mission-critical tasks that require C-suite level engagement and buy-in. Deploying the right approach with executive-level (X2) stakeholders will ensure that supply chain becomes a key component of a health care system strategy through effective communication and advanced project components.

In this updated AHRMM conference session, we will discuss how supply chain can gain and maintain regular access to the C-suite, leverage relationships with senior-level executives, along with how to create and communicate value at the executive level. The session will continue by examining best practices for supply chain leaders to prepare for and execute productive goal-oriented sessions with the C-suite.

*Although this session focuses on the C-suite, all levels of the health care supply chain can benefit by learning how to identify their communication style and the style of others to determine the best way to interact with colleagues and peers.

Learning Objectives

  • Describe six best practices for major C-suite involvement in strategic cost reduction projects, solving complex issues and problems with a team approach.
  • Explain how best to communicate with individual members of your C-suite by diagnosing communication styles and identifying best practices for those executives.
  • Align objectives of stakeholders to create shared vision that can increase buy-in achievement.

How this session relates to the Cost, Quality and Outcomes (CQO) Movement: Supply chain is at the center of achieving cost, quality and outcomes in health care by breaking down department silos and maintaining ongoing C-suite involvement.
