Institutional health leadership: strong management means better results | Q&A

“The importance of stability has been recognised since the time of Napoleon. You might say he was known as the 10th C.E.O. Other C.E.O.s Turn to for Advice”.

This is a quote from the Page 2 of the Washington Post by Janet Mitchell.

The statement could be significantly further adapted and applied to the human health sector. The failure of two organisations—Humana and Humana Inc. (UAW)—that have global reach, offering health and medical solutions to an enormous number of people over different continents, has provided a sobering reminder of the importance of stability in the health sector, and the synergy between strong capital and strong management.

The importance of stability has been recognised since the time of Napoleon. You might say he was known as the 10th C.E.O. Other C.E.O.s Turn to for Advice. The reference to the history of the other C.E.O.’s who were also a part of this 20th century era could be more illuminating. Additionally, the word in the Washington Post article could be used as a leading indicator of the way the global health sector could be about to go in the next phase of the 21st century.

The successful CEOs of the 21st century are expected to create and successfully maintain clear clear and market focused objectives, articulated and expanded with a strong emphasis on purpose, foundation, mission and profitability. In this segment of the world there will be plenty of challenging tasks and others on which there will be limited success unless these objectives are clearly articulated and pursued.

The C.E.O. is now being asked to do much more than having their vision and mission supported by a solid legal base. Our boards are looking more and more for their CEOs to be stewards of the company and to be able to take decisions based on analysis, predictability and fundamentals.
