The 2022 WHA Health Care Leadership Academy cohort gained valuable executive insights and training in a March 8 session entitled, Executive Project Sponsorship: The ‘Must Know’ Essentials for Leading Organizational Projects.
Instructor Scott Converse from the UW Center for Professional & Executive Development (CPED) led the group through this important topic in an interactive virtual session.
Describing the focus of the day’s class, Converse noted, “As leaders within a health care environment, we are often called upon to lead or sponsor projects to address important departmental or organizational initiatives. In this session, we will explore the important role a project executive plays when sponsoring a key project or initiative, how to set the project up for success and ensure needed outcomes are delivered, and how the executive sponsor role is integrated and demonstrated throughout the project lifecycle.”
The group will meet again at the end of March to learn about the WHA Information Center and how they, as hospital leaders, can best use data to positively impact their hospitals and ultimately provide the best care possible to patients.
