"The real challenge in crafting strategy lies in detecting subtle discontinuities that may undermine a business in the future. And for that there is no technique, no program, just a sharp mind in touch with the situation."

Henry Mintzberg

We Bring a Record of Accomplishment to Strategy in Health Care

"It has always been remarkable to me the extent to which people can hold certain assumptions inviolate even in the face of compelling evidence to the contrary. Nowhere has my amazement been greater than when I've watched healthcare professionals confront the issue of quality. There is a common assertion, of course, that 'quality is a given,' that the quality of care provided by physicians and hospital is 'roughly equivalent.' Unfortunately, it is a ridiculous contention. The power of owning a 'high quality' position can be overwhelming. In Baltimore and in the surrounding area extending in a
100-mile radius, for instance, consumer preference for Johns Hopkins consistently runs above 50 percent. Similar patterns can be discerned for Massachusetts General and The Cleveland Clinic. In an area when most hospitals are hard put to define how they differ from their neighbors, no point of differentiation is likely to prove more powerful than quality."
