Courtesy of NHC Healthcare Systems, 'Small Experiments Can Help Solve Enterprise Level Problems' offers the following exceptional takeaways:
Large, multi-site enterprises are challenged when trying to resolve complex enterprise level issues. Whatever solutions that have been identified need to make sense for each facility but be standard just enough for ease of implementation and maintainability. Too often the solution looks great on paper but when implemented, fails to resolve the root cause issues for either of the facility.
However, by using small, local level experiments to vet possible solutions you can reap the following benefits:
Identify flaws in the potential solutions prior to a large scale implementation
Allow to for true continuous improvement
Prepare training material and test it; plus early adopters can help train future sites
Multiple implementation strategies become viable
Spread any cost for the solution across multiple fiscal quarters or even years
Create buy in at both the front line and C-suite levels
Trying small experiments, to resolve root causes, can be an effective way to solve complex problems
