Dr. Robert Burgelman is the Edmund W. Littlefield Professor of Management and the Director of the Executive Program at the Stanford Graduate School of Business.
As a worldwide expert on strategy, Burgelman has authored multiple books on leadership and consulted with more than 100 companies around the globe.
Throughout the program, Burgelman:
- Helps healthcare leaders understand the tools needed to visualize change and make it happen.
- Describes how leaders can effectively guide organizations through periods of crisis and difficult change.
- Advises on how to avoid getting distracted by “shiny new things” and, instead, focus on the most-effective (often unsexy) solutions.
- Discusses the merits and potential downsides of private equity’s involvement in U.S. medical care.
Listener note: Given Dr. Burgelman’s high-level focus on strategy, today’s episode will include occasional interjections from cohosts Dr. Robert Pearl and Jeremy Corr to link the material to the day-to-day experiences of healthcare professionals and patients.
