This week, we worked with 150 Purdue Pharmacy students. We used Strategic Doing to help them learn the deep skills of collaboration. Increasingly pharmacists are called upon to help address complex community health challenges.
A recent example of the challenges ahead: opioid addiction. Pharmacists need to be sensitive to the signs of addiction and extensively connected to the resources within the community that can help.
These students now have some new tools to help them design and guide the collaborative solutions needed to help address wicked problems.
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.
