The Strategic Sustainability Learning Collaborative will recruit a cohort of 30 human services executives from across the country to engage in a year-long study on specific management topics. The Learning Collaborative’s participants will interact with one another and OPEN MINDS senior team members to develop skills and a plan of action that can be implemented in their specific organizations. The 12-month Strategic Sustainability Learning Collaborative components include:
- Quarterly Knowledge Based Webinars
- Bi-Weekly Content Related Newsletters
- Monthly Group Q&A forums
- Monthly individual telephone consultations
- Annual Summit tied to one of the popular OPEN MINDS Annual Institutes
Seismic changes in the health and human services market place over the past decade has led to dramatic changes in performance expectations for providers and the ways in which they are reimbursed for services. While all health and behavioral organizations have been impacted, small to medium size organizations (those with $25 million or less in annual revenue), have been left especially vulnerable from these changes. Continued sustainability and growth will be dependent upon these organizations recognizing the impact of change on their historic mission and developing the capacity and competencies required for continued success.
The enrollment period for the Strategic Sustainability Learning Collaborative will occur September – December 2018 and enrollment will be limited to 20-30 executives from across the country. This Strategic Sustainability Learning Collaborative will be led by Senior Project Lead, Paul S. Neitman. LMSW, who has over thirty-five years’ experience In human services, having lead a large, statewide children’s services organization as the Chief Operating Officer for nearly twenty of those years. The Strategic Sustainability Learning Collaborative’s 12-month program will begin February 1, 2019.
