Strategy and Innovation Services

Strategy and Innovation helps VUMC navigate the complexities of fulfilling its mission of Making Care Personal. An important aspect of this mission is establishing strategies that promote equity, innovation, and sustainability throughout its clinical, research, and educational enterprises. 

Our goal in Strategy and Innovation is to provide services that make strategizing easier and more efficient. Our team will help your team generate and experiment with new ideas, explore potential ventures, and bolster your ability to steer work and decision-making.

Our Services

Facilitation: our experts ease you through your work to define a strategy. We help bring you clarity and effectiveness amidst ambiguity and complexity, and accelerate your work towards action and results. The outcomes include solutions to a variety of situations: solution for a specific problem, design for a new idea, multi-year strategic plans, refinement of a team’s mission and identity to name a few. 

We deliver high-impact results in strategy workshops ranging from as short as 2 hours up to 2 days, with as few as 6 people up to 100 people, in-person or virtual.
