Dr. Kenagy asks the question, “Why can’t healthcare organizations deliver the same Culture of Quality and Value to patients that Apple and Amazon apply to their products?”
His presentations and inspiring, virtual-online experiences provide the answer: innovative, highly adaptive companies don’t implement and standardize culture; they systematically evolve and continually adapt their cultures in a complex, dynamic, unpredictable world.
Dr. Kenagy will show you how through his customized speaking and workshops, both live-onsite and virtual-online. Current examples include:
Dr. John Kenagy knows healthcare as a vascular surgeon, Chief of Surgery, Chief of Staff, and Vice President for Business Development in a multi-state health system and innovator. But, his most meaningful experience was becoming a patient.
He suffered a broken neck in a fall from a tree. Critically injured, he discovered that his recovery depended on the efforts of dedicated individuals working in a very complicated system. Searching for solutions, he became a Visiting Scholar at Harvard Business School. His research into resilient, highly adaptive companies opened the door to simplifying the complex world of healthcare.
Searching for answers, he earned a management degree from Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government and was a Visiting Scholar at Harvard Business School.
Kenagy’s Harvard research included developing a disruptive innovation healthcare strategy with Harvard Business School Professor Clayton Christensen and translating to healthcare the drivers for success in transformational companies like Toyota, Intel, and Apple.
The result is Adaptive Design®: a set of revitalizing choices and opportunities that cultivate adaptability in the everyday work of the organization and its people. He authored DESIGNED TO ADAPT: Leading Healthcare in Challenging Times to be the guidebook to more care for less cost. Forbes Magazine stated that John Kenagy, MD, is "the man who would save healthcare".
Dr. Kenagy’s work and his new web-based, online learning course, "Experience Adaptive Design," enable everyone from the executive team to the front line to get patients exactly what they need at continually lower cost. It is the way to thrive in 21st century healthcare.
