On July 9, the Lab spent a day in Alexandria, Louisiana tackling the difficult challenges of child and maternal health. This workshop highlights a growing area of interest among public health workers in the agile strategy work we are developing at Purdue.
Louisiana’s Bureau of Family Health is housed within the Office of Public Health’s Center for Preventive Health Services, and is the State agency responsible for administering the Federal Title V Maternal and Child Health Block Grant. Policy development and programmatic direction are provided by Central Office staff with input from regional health and social service leaders and consumers; direct services are provided by Parish Health Unit staff and contract agencies.
The Director of the Lab at UNA and co-author of Strategic Doing: 10 Skills for Agile Leadership, Ed’s work has focused on developing new models of strategy specifically designed to accelerate complex collaboration in networks and open innovation. He is the original developer of Strategic Doing.
