Opening Discussion Topic:

Strategic Planning: How Do You Do It?

In a year unlike any other – at least in the past century – strategic planning has become more important than ever, not just to survive the COVID crisis, but to position one’s organization for a new normal.

Fortunately for us, thanks to Scott Frost‘s gracious introduction, two esteemed experts in strategic planning for healthcare enterprises, Scott Burns and Andy Bachrodt, will be with us to share how they’re assisting health systems, hospitals, and medical groups craft (and recraft) their strategic plans for 2021 – and beyond.

During our Members Opening Discussion we’ll look to hear what approaches you use for strategic planningand how it changed during COVID! We’ll also want to hear your expectations for the Biden Administration’s “First 100 Days,” and how you anticipate it will impact your Strategic Planning for 2021 – or not.

And, as always, we’ll look to hear and discuss, “What’s Keeping You Up Nights?”

Scott Burns, is a Senior Manager with ECG Management Consultants, which recently became A Siemens Healthineers Company. And Andy Bachrodt, a Principal with ECG, heads the firm’s Strategy & Business Advisory Division. Both Scott and Andy have spent over 30 years honing their expertise in enterprise strategy, M&A, system integration, creating innovative ambulatory care solutions, and forming partnerships with aligned medical groups that enable providers to succeed in a value-based care delivery model. They also both have personal experience with M&A, as just last year ECG merged with Siemens Healthineers, which also includes Siemens’ imaging, diagnostics, advanced therapies, and other services companies.
