2Overview Overview of leader accountability system Share the “everyday” application of the LEMShare OUP leader “toolkit” used to instill accountability and drive resultsIn 2007, OU Medicine recognized the need to implement a competitive strategy to increase volumes and market share. However, as a non-CON state, the market provided a set of unique challenges and opportunities. Recognizing that you must first be a market leader before you can lead your region, OU Medicine embarked upon a strategy of transforming a traditional academic culture into one that is focused on service and improved patient outcomes. This session will outline how OU Medicine went about identifying and outlining their strategy, key challenges faced and specific tools that were used to accelerate results.

4Why LEM?We believe accountability in leadership is the cornerstone of achievement. To achieve our OU Medicine goal — positioning OU Medicine as the premier health care provider in our region — the advances, achievements and accomplishments of the organization must be evidence-based and measureable.Success that isn’t measurable is questionable. If it can’t be measured, it can’t be managed. Accountability calls for a level of commitment — ownership of responsibility — and is an essential component for organizational goals to be realized….
5Why LEM?Each goal we set our sights on, whether achieved, surpassed or even unmet can become a snapshot from which we interpret what works and what we can do better.LEM tools not only capture the snapshots, but they’ll also help us think more strategically in the goal-setting process and guide us in the best ways to achieve them.
8Building an Culture“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.”- AristotleIn 2009, we set out on a journey to change our cultureRequired a new focus and concerted effortChanging our daily habits and practicesThere was discomfort. We questioned the importance.However, you embraced the process and plowed aheadMantra of “Every patient, every time”After a year, we have seen progress and sustained results8
10What is Leader Accountability at OUP? Accountability is about setting the expectation, clearly communicating it, and then holding yourself and everyone within your sphere of influence responsible for consistently meeting the established expectationsIn 2007, OU Medicine recognized the need to implement a competitive strategy to increase volumes and market share. However, as a non-CON state, the market provided a set of unique challenges and opportunities. Recognizing that you must first be a market leader before you can lead your region, OU Medicine embarked upon a strategy of transforming a traditional academic culture into one that is focused on service and improved patient outcomes. This session will outline how OU Medicine went about identifying and outlining their strategy, key challenges faced and specific tools that were used to accelerate results.10
11Standards of BehaviorOur employees created the Standards and our leadership steered the accountability.In addition to creating balanced goals for each entity of OU Medicine, we have also created the OU Medicine Standards of Behavior. A group of 25 employees from across the enterprise and from all levels joined together to write these standards. The Standards Team worked from May through October 2008 to complete this document. The Standards they have created are considered “must-haves” – that is, they will be expectations for every employee.We believe that this is another important step to align the enterprise.To date we have had over 5,000 employees acknowledge and sign-off on these standards.11
