GETTYSBURG, Pa., July 22, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- OPEN MINDS recently announced a new educational program offering for children's services providers in the behavioral health and human service field – "The Children's Service Market — Sustainability, Market Shifts, & Strategy." This free 60-minute executive web briefing is launched through The Executive Institute For Strategic Innovation: A Children's Services Sustainability Collaboration Of OPEN MINDS and The Child Welfare League of America, and will take place Wednesday, July 31, 2013 at 2:00 PM EDT. All registrants, regardless of live attendance, will receive a recorded copy of the presentation and all presentation materials at the conclusion of the event.
"Running an organization that serves our most vulnerable children is no easy task," said OPEN MINDS Chief Executive Officer, Monica E. Oss. "There are competing interests of families, counties, and the courts. And, the funding landscape is changing – with less residential treatment, more managed care, new treatment models and more. The 'big picture' challenge for executives? Developing a strategy for future sustainability...Our team at OPEN MINDS has spent two decades working with executive teams and boards of children's service organizations to develop a service and financing framework that is sustainable."
This framework is the focus of this exclusive web event for children's service provider organizations. This sustainability framework includes four key elements:
- A market-oriented strategic plan and market positioning for an increasingly competitive market
- A marketing and fundraising plan that is 'up for the task' in today's competitive economic climate
- A structured plan for design and implementation of new service lines
- Enhanced effectiveness and efficiency through adoption of best practices in operational excellence and financial management
The agenda for this session includes a 60-minute presentation on this framework followed by 60-minutes for Q &A with the session's presenter, industry expert, Monica E. Oss.
