“I can’t adequately express how you’ve pushed our department forward by your skill, expertise, and approach to strategic planning. Many thanks!”

Craig Niederberger, M.D.
Chair, Department of Urology

Client: UIC College of Medicine

The Challenge

Change in department leadership created factions on the faculty team making it difficult to agree on a common strategic direction.

The Assessment

A thirst for innovation was stymied by lack of strategic vision clarity and weak accountability for connection and collaboration.

The Action

A strategic visioning session was facilitated in which department mission and values support a commitment to diversity, creativity, and cohesion to make breakthrough innovation possible.

The Outcome

An annual full-faculty strategic planning process is now anchored into the business planning for research, education, clinical delivery, and growth.
