Leadership Buy-In Resources Overview

This section of the website provides resources intended to help spur leadership action on to new or improved quality efforts. The tools are intended to be used by leaders, but also by other Health Center staff who are determined to solicit the help of leaders on quality work.

Embarking on, or making significant advancements to quality work requires strong Health Center leadership.  Leaders help define how decisions will be made, provide the resources necessary to analyze data and processes, and develop or guide strategic planning efforts that integrate all the functions of a Health Center.  At the highest level of function, quality is driven by organizational culture, rather than strategy.  Here too, leaders play important roles in helping to define and spread culture change throughout an organization.

Getting Started on the Quality Journey

Launching quality work at first can feel like a daunting task – even more so if you do not have the support of leadership in your organization.  Some individuals have successfully launched quality work by following the mantra: “What can I get done by next Tuesday?”  This mantra helps them sidestep inertia, extensive collaboration, and time consuming benchmarking research. Instead, by identifying small steps they can take to improve quality on their own, within the context of their existing job, they can start on the journey quickly. Furthermore, success in these small steps can help with Leadership Buy-In for the importance of Quality work.
