Strategic Planning

For Hospice Boards


We need a new approach to deal with our current environment.

President, Integriti3D


A Foundation for Strategic Planning

The chaotic nature of today’s environment necessitates a different approach to strategy.  This Hospice Governance Academy module outlines some new ways of approaching strategic planning that include:

  • Recognizing patterns rather than collecting data
  • Experimenting rather than betting everything on one idea
  • Creating strategy filters to use as new opportunities arise
  • Ongoing strategic thinking versus a one-time strategic plan
  • Involving everyone in executing on strategy with tools such as a one-page strategic graphic

So You've Completed Your Strategic Plan, Now What?

We’ve all seen or heard of a strategic plan that’s the result of much time and effort, but then gets put on the shelf. In this Spotlight Interview, Bill Musick, president of Integriti3D, talks with Liz Fowler, CEO of Bluegrass Care Navigators, about the board’s role in strategy, from strategy development to ongoing strategic thinking. Learn about:

  • Iterative planning
  • High-achieving goal setting
  • Delivering consistent information to your board
  • Hold everyone accountable

Finally, hospice-focused board development

The Hospice Governance Academy was created to provide industry-specific content directly to hospice leaders. HGA is an easy, online learning platform that ensures your board has a shared base of core hospice governance knowledge and up-to-date information on trends and issues facing hospice care today. Content is contributed regularly by industry-recognized experts.
