- Demonstrating the knowledge to facilitate the organization’s corporate legal and governance structures; and
- Demonstrating the knowledge to integrate the corporate mission, vision and values statement into the organization’s culture.
These objectives help with defining the strategic direction of the practice and providing the roadmap to success. A unified practice will work together to ensure that all the moving parts are functioning in sync and reinforcing the duties of everyone involved. When analyzing a practice and the governance structure, it is necessary to:
- List the administrative positions and who fills each;
- Determine the process used in establishing leadership roles; and
- Create a process by which each of these practice leaders interacts with the practice associates, seeks input and gets feedback.
Lastly, each practice should have a predetermined schedule of meetings to address practice governance, personnel issues, conflict resolution, quality improvement and future planning. To be successful in this venture, the organizational governance should provide a framework for joint decision making and to facilitate collaboration and teamwork. Leaders need to drive success, have a vision, be interested in operational and clinical performance and focus on operational efficiency and effectiveness.
