How To Radically Re-Engineer Your Service Portfolio—Creating Innovative New Options

April 20, 2023

The health and human services market is rapidly changing, and the speed of this change is increasing as a result of new technology, competitors, and service delivery models. Building a service portfolio that addresses consumer needs and payer pain points in an increasingly competitive market requires systematic, and sometimes radical, changes to your portfolio of services. But how do you perform an actionable service portfolio analysis that positions your organization for growth of services and financial sustainability?

Thomas Grant, executive vice president and chief financial officer for Woods Services will build on “The Hedgehog Principle,” described by Jim Collins in Good to Great, to discuss how Woods addressed internal and external challenges to create a growing portfolio of services.

Attendees in this session will learn practical insights for:

  • Performing a service line analysis
  • Aligning internal services with changing market needs and opportunities
  • Communicating the rationale for change to internal and external stakeholders

This roundtable is part of The OPEN MINDS CFO Consortium developed to provide executives with the tools and abilities to strategically assess and position their organizations for long-term sustainability and growth.
