Healthcare is a service industry. People and talent development are the most important and impactful investments for providers and suppliers.
Providers We are not yet investing enough in talent development to prepare our team members with the competencies necessary to support the healthcare supply chain of tomorrow. Supply chain is not yet a destination for talented graduates from universities with supply chain programs. Most concerning is the lack of intentional leadership development offered and prioritize (maybe even embraced?) by the majority of our supply chain leaders.
We continue to get deeper into technical competencies even though next-level leadership skills are what’s actually preventing us from expanding our impact and influence within our organizations. Chief Supply Chain Officer vacancies around the country signal ineffective succession planning and missed opportunities with our extraordinary emerging leaders. It’s time to ask more from supply chain AND to invest more in talent.
