Quality improvement collaboratives are widely used to improve health care in both high-income and low and middle-income settings. Teams from multiple health facilities share learning on a given topic and apply a structured cycle of change testing. Previous systematic reviews reported positive effects on target outcomes, but the role of context and mechanism of change is underexplored. This realist-inspired systematic review aims to analyse contextual factors influencing intended outcomes and to identify how quality improvement collaboratives may result in improved adherence to evidence-based practices. We built an initial conceptual framework to drive our enquiry, focusing on three context domains: health facility setting; project-specific factors; wider organisational and external factors; and two further domains pertaining to mechanisms: intra-organisational and inter-organisational changes. We systematically searched five databases and grey literature for publications relating to quality improvement
The conceptualisation of an organisation and its boundaries is rarely straightforward. What might appear on the surface to be one system with one raison detre often turns out to feature a number of sub-systems which do not always work in harmony toward a single mission. Indeed, the declared and undeclared objectives of key stakeholders might differ substantially. Additionally, the notional organisation and its sub-systems might be differentially loosely coupled to external systems of various sorts - in other words, they are open rather than closed systems.. Various conceptual models of organisational change and development can be found in the literature, but many of these have little substantive empirical foundation. Much of the early work in organisational change drew on field theory (Lewin), early systems theory (von Bertalanffy) and cybernetics (Wiener), utilising concepts such as homeostasis, negative entropy and equifinality.. Organisational change is constant, and occurs in complex, ...
Innovation and organizational learning are inextricably connected. A company must learn from its mistakes and cultivate multiple pathways for recognizing and leveraging the best ideas effectively, whether those ideas come from inside or outside of the organization, says Jim Clemmer.

Introduction. The current set of organizational innovations has currently pressured organizational leaders to manage based on promoting competitiveness and economic efficiency when recognizing the need for new alternatives to organize the delivery of their services. From this perspective, Brazilian hospitals, regardless of their nature, size or type of service, are undergoing significant changes, which have intensified in recent years, given financial pressures and the need for restructuring in order to manage the complexity of organizational resources.. For that, the managerial models that prevail in hospitals have been guided by various characteristics, based on determinants that include, among others, the growing costs of health care, the need to increase the coverage of services, and the increased demands of clients. In this respect, the patriarchal model centered on the male perspective, has been replaced in a slow and gradual manner, including in managerial boards, and in other fields, ...

By. Aditi Ramdorai and Cornelius Herstatt. Working Paper No. 74, TIM/TUHH. Frugal innovations, characterized by their focus on affordability and retaining key functionalities of products/services, are emerging in the healthcare sector from India- ranging from low-cost healthcare delivery by hospitals like Aravind Eye Care that provides cataract surgery to around 300,000 patients at a cost of 18 USD per patient to product innovations such as the Jaipur Foot, a low-cost prosthesis. These frugal innovations represent disruptive innovations, innovations that are typically simpler, more convenient and more affordable. Disruptive innovations create growth potential for companies while opening up access to products and services that were previously beyond peoples reach. Low-income markets or Base-of-the-Pyramid [BOP] markets present new opportunities to Multi-National Corporations [MNCs] and scholars are calling MNCs to leverage BOP markets to create disruptive innovations.. Established incumbents ...

An example of a disruptive innovation was the introduction of the mobile phone. In the beginning, the quality was deemed "good enough" and the new and appealing dimension was mobility. Over the course of the evolution of the mobile phone, the product became established in the market has now undergone incremental improvements. As capability has increased, a large number of users are now finding the current iteration of the mobile phone to be more than they need. Perhaps this field is now ripe for a new, disruptive innovation. ...nurses nationwide are mastering the concepts and skills of innovation and making a tremendous difference in the practice of nursing, thus improving patient care.The recent emergence of "retail clinics" constitutes a potentially disruptive innovation in healthcare.

Disruptive innovation, a phrase coined by Clay Christensen, is usually a new product that, to experts, looks inadequate. Because it is. These innovations are not, initially, as good as what the experts use (in this case, their network of surgeons). They initially dismiss the disrupter as being of poor quality. But disruptive innovation takes hold because, for a large chunk of consumers (i.e. patients looking for surgeons), the innovation is both affordable and better than the alternative. And once it takes hold, it starts to get better. And as it does, its unintended consequences will become dwarfed by its intended consequences: making the system better. Thats what ProPublica has produced. And thats worth celebrating ...
Having a car not only implies driving it, but also involves taking care of it, which can be expensive. Fortunately there are certain things we can do by ourselves. An oil change periodically is imperative to keep a car in optimum conditions and actually it is easier to do than it sounds. Is good to know that a car needs an oil change every 3000 to 5000 miles or 3 months, whichever comes first, which comes out to 4 to 5 times a year what means about 200 to 400 dollars depending on your type of car. The home oil change is a simple process that requires a few tools, and its a sure way to save some money while you avoid the hassle of sitting in a dull waiting room somewhere reading outdated magazines. Following this tutorial you will be able to perform this simple task. You might think that an oil change is a hard and nasty work. Well, you are partially right, it could be a little messy, but with the right tools it is a very simple procedure, so lets start with the things you will need for this ...

Downloadable (with restrictions)! Although innovation is essential to build a competitive advantage and survive in the long run, some firms choose to exit, through mergers and acquisitions (M&As), or radically change their business portfolio and identity. This paper examines how innovative capabilities influence the decision of a firm to exit, among business closure, M&A, and radical restructuring. Using an analysis of a large and rich panel of Dutch manufacturing firms, we find that product and process innovation are equally important to lower the probability to close down activities, and this effect is stronger when product and process innovations are pursed in combination. We also find that process innovation reduces the probability of exit by radical restructuring, while product innovation, when not supported by process innovation, especially increases the probability of exit by M&As. Our findings suggest that exit strategies are intimately bound to the nature and synergies of innovative efforts.

Until the mid-1970s, the prominent approach in organization and management theory emphasized adaptive change in organizations. In this view, as environments change, leaders or dominant coalitions in organizations alter appropriate organizational features to realign their fit to environmental demands (e.g. Lawrence and Lorsch 1967; Thompson 1967; Child 1972; Chandler 1977; Pfeffer and Salancik 1978; Porter 1980; Rumelt 1986). Since then, an approach to studying organizational change that places more emphasis on environmental selection processes, introduced at about that time (Aldrich and Pfeffer 1976; Hannan and Freeman 1977; Aldrich 1979; McKelvey 1982), has become increasingly influential. The stream of research on ecological perspectives of organizational change has generated tremendous excitement, controversy and debate in the community of organization and management theory scholars. Inspired by the question, Why are there so many kinds of organizations? ...

The first step in any change process is to acknowledge and name the problem. We take another step forward when we normalize our responses to our work. We can address indirect trauma by attending to basic self-care: balancing work, play, and rest. Adequate diet and exercise are essential. In addition, treaters benefit from appropriate professional training for their work, connection with their colleagues, ongoing consultation for their work, and a place to talk about their experience of indirect trauma. Some trauma treaters find it helpful to balance their trauma work with other work, get more support for the work, and simply to acknowledge the difficulties of the work. Trauma professionals can benefit from identifying specific difficulties, assessing the contributing factors, targeting specific steps to take, and getting support from friends or colleagues in taking those steps. Finally, restoring meaning and hope is essential. Each individual must find ways to reconnect with whatever in life is ...

As many of you know, The Center exists to share knowledge and advocate the transformation of healthcare settings into healing environments by improving outcomes through the creative use of evidence-based design. In our quest, we have established a large field-study research project known as the "Pebble Project" (currently 40 facilities strong), which is measuring how design impacts behavioral, organizational, and economic outcomes. Through this effort, many data are being collected and many new design innovations are being tested. The Center hopes to take advantage of the $200 billion healthcare building boom to spark innovation instead of waiting the typical eight to ten years for a great healthcare design idea to come to fruition. We also want to keep the lines of communication open between your design team and our thought leaders. To do this, we need to disseminate knowledge faster.. It is risky business these days to build without some assurance that there will be improved measurable ...

Normalization process theory (NPT) is a sociological theory of the implementation, embedding, and integration of new technologies and organizational innovations developed by Carl R. May, Tracy Finch, and colleagues. The theory is a contribution to the field of science and technology studies (STS), and is the result of a programme of theory building by May and his co-researchers.[1] Through three iterations, the theory has built upon the Normalization Process Model previously developed by May et al. to explain the social processes that lead to the routine embedding of innovative health technologies.[2][3]. Normalization process theory focuses attention on agentic contributions - the things that individuals and groups do to operationalize new or modified modes of practice as they interact with dynamic elements of their environments. It defines the implementation, embedding, and integration as a process that occurs when participants deliberately initiate and seek to sustain a sequence of events ...
This study attempts to establish the relationship between knowledge management strategy and organizational change in commercial banks in Kenya. Knowledge management strategy can assist a firm to induce individuals to offer their knowledge voluntarily for a firms use, achieve distinctive advantage through full exploitation of a firms knowledge base, build institutional memory and protect it from prying competitors. It can influence amongst others a successful organizational change. The study employed a descriptive cross sectional survey. A total of 39 commercial banks in operation (not under statutory management) were surveyed. Primary data was collected from the respondents using a questionnaire. Analysis utilized largely the median and mode as measures of central tendency while the inter-quartile range was used as a measure of dispersion. Percentages and frequencies were also utilised to present part of the findings. Pseudo R square statistics were used as a measure of association between ...
