High-reliability teams require deep process improvement skills, a transparent culture and strong change agents. Too many times, health care organizations are missing one or more of these components, but still expecting improvement. A shift in perspective, organizational structure and problem-solving can lead to faster adoption and accelerated savings.


  • 80 percent of the work in managing a successful change has nothing to do with the tools and everything to do with perceptions
  • people are “prisoners of their own experience” — unleashing creativity takes careful planning prior to any team activity
  • 90 percent of the time, pre-planning never happens, which causes false starts and deflated demeanor
  • setting clear boundaries for prospective team members should be included in your expectation of why they are on the team and how you want them to engage
  • making it stick: the power of transformational rounds
