    Last time in “Sponsoring Successful Change,” we discussed the value of a sponsor in the implementation of any substantial organizational change. What is sponsorship?

    We hope you’ve been reading our Pursuing Medical Practice Success blog posts and finding them useful in your practice.

    In the previous post in this series, we discussed the value of a site-specific action plan (SSAP)—a tool that serves many purposes. The SSAP is where you will

    • document the high-priority issues you and your practice providers have agreed to address in your Practice Operations Council (POC) meetings;
    • identify the goals or outcomes you want when implementing solutions to those issues;
    • make a clear statement of the tactic you plan to use to accomplish your goal; and
    • spell out the specific detailed action steps you must take to carry out your chosen tactic.
