Surgeons Learn Strategy at Leadership Summit

Over 500 surgeons from across the country attended the American College of Surgeons Leadership Summit and learned about strategic planning from Nick Hernandez, CEO at ABISA. The presentation delivered by Mr. Hernandez was titled The Art and Practice of Strategic Thinking and was given to the audience at the seventh annual meeting, held last Sunday, May 20th, 2018 at the Renaissance Washington, DC Downton Hotel.

The CEO of a leading independent healthcare consultancy, Mr. Hernandez has helped clients throughout the United States and in multiple countries formulate strategic direction and advance healthcare business initiatives.  The company’s client list includes physician groups, hospitals, healthcare IT organizations, venture capitalists, private equity investment groups, and strategy consulting companies.

Participants of the engaging session obtained useful and actionable steps relating to the strategic planning process.  The audience received an overview on the process of strategic thinking and planning, the prerequisites of strategic thinking, and common strategic planning mistakes.

The Leadership Summit brings in compelling speakers to offer comprehensive and specialized sessions that provide ACS members, leaders and advocates with topics focused on effective surgeon leadership.
