Great study... Did you do all of it on your personal? This must've taken lots of time. Excellent Article.

Wow Check out this rumor.....

    ABC will announce Monday that TLC reality star Kate Gosselin will be one of the hoofers on the next round of “Dancing With the Stars,” according to a source with knowledge of the situation.

    At press time, the deal was virtually done for the now-divorced mother of eight to become one of the celebrities vying for the cheesetastic Mirrored Disco Ball.

    This will be the fulfillment of a dream for Gosselin who, on Jay Leno’s ill-fated prime-time show, said she’d like to be on “Stars” because she can’t dance. “I want to laugh at myself,” Gosselin told Leno. “I so cannot dance.”

Will you Watch?

Thanks for the quicktopic tool find- excellent, I will use it with my teams!

I enjoyed your document-- some thoughts:

The overall plan appears directed at a topical level of introduction, which is well thought out and comprehensive. I suspect the real challenge of the piece is an on-going effort for continuing the dialogue to REALLY get into the heads of other leaders, facilitators, and staff to ensure long term transition success.

The plan looks great... what is your plan for ensuring a genuine sense of care and integration among the staff to which this leader reports? -- these are among the least successful issues in transition management, don't you think?

Hope the food for thought helps and encourages more reflection. I commend you on on your trustful sharing, I'm sure the feedback with provide much reward to you!

PS. I did see a typo on "Parento" I think you mean "Pareto"?

Dutch: one consideration that I haven't seen accounted for is the fact that this is a MEDICAL environment. Having had a fair amount of experience in health care environments, I can say with some certainty that if your new COO is from outside health care, he needs to take into account several factors: the wide differences in concerns of the audiences (e.g., care-givers vs. business), the chasms that sometimes exist between physicians and everyone else, how he presents his own credentials/experience to account for those widely differing concerns, assuring the care-givers that he's as concerned about quality of care as he is about the bottom line. Planning to meet separately with the various constituencies might help toward this end -- and tailoring his intorductory remarks accordingly.

Quick typo Dutch: I believe the 80:20 rule is Pareto, not Parento.

I am pleased to see the comments and visits indicating quite a bit of interest for this.

A general observation on some of the questions raised about the plan. The purpose of the plan is only to introduce him to a large organization.

While interaction and feedback mechanisms come into play at a later time during the assessment phase, perhaps it might help to think of this as a sperm and egg metaphor. Little sperm trying to break through the cellular membrane of the much larger egg to begin the transfer and intermixing of DNA and genetic codes.

So think of the outline as impression or brand management where the brand and product to manage is the COO and the market is the Medical Center.

>BTW, thanks for introducing this cool system, I wonder if it is available as a secure system as well?

I'm curious about what's important...what it is now, what it needs to be, what's possible and then...the plan you've stated. As you have it, it seems like you're proposing something as a solution without stating the issues and their relevance...however, I'm sure these have been discussed, yet an executive summary of the context would clarify what your assumptions are!

BTW, thanks for introducing this cool system, I wonder if it is available as a secure system as well?

Overall, looks good; appears to cover all the bases. However, there is a piece that I believe is missing, and in fact, is often missing in leadership communications and behavior. There are many moments during the day of a leader, CEO or otherwise, where he/she has an opportunity to communicate a consistent message (perhaps about "how we do business around here" or something linked to the vision, or something about customers...) - call them little moments of truth. These messages, if integrated into all the communications opportunities - formal or informal, orchestrated or spontaneous - are incredibly powerful and allow the leader to cement ideas in the minds of his/her constituents.

Can't really comment as I don't know what plus minus delta strategy is

Hi Dutch,
Don't know if you remember me but I posted serval times on the OD net regarding the Management my objectives thread about a year ago.

I feel I need to qualify my observations with two remarks. One is that I am relatively new to the field with no clients of my own. And the second is that I am a longhorn. So just keep those two things in mind as you read my comments.

I want to thank you for sharing this with us
