For leaders in health and human services, designing and building an ecosystem to deliver new services, solutions, and outcomes poses several challenging questions:
To help leaders with these challenging questions, the Technology and Entrepreneurship Center at Harvard, Leadership for a Networked World, and Accenture, in collaboration with the American Public Human Services Association, are convening senior-most leaders for The 2018 Health and Human Services Summit: Designing Generative Outcomes.
This 9th annual Summit, to be held October 26th – 28th 2018 at Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts, will provide participants with an exclusive opportunity to not only learn from emerging health and human services ecosystems, but also ideate and design new ecosystem-enabled solutions that move organizations up the Health and Human Services Value Curve.
Summit participants will gain membership to a community of peers and experts, and leave the Summit prepared and poised to pursue innovation, and build entirely new Generative solutions to today's pressing health and human services challenges.
Summit attendees are senior-level, health and human services executives, who aspire to improve performance in the near term and redesign public institutions for the long term. Regardless of title, all Summit attendees are “Chief Transformation Officers” in practice – leaders who work across traditional boundaries (organizational, jurisdictional, sectorial) to create public value.
The Summit is an invitation-only program for senior health and human services executives. Other applicants will be reviewed and accepted on a case-by-case basis, depending in part on available space. We typically receive more applications than we can accommodate, so apply for your seat as soon as possible. This event is supported by the hosting and collaborating organizations, so there is no tuition fee to attend. Travel and hotel expenses, however, are the responsibility of individual participants.
Leadership for a Networked World’s applied research, student innovation challenge, and on-campus summit programs are an initiative of Dr. Antonio M. Oftelie, Innovation Fellow at the Technology and Entrepreneurship Center at Harvard (TECH), part of the Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences. TECH is a hub for students, faculty, alumni, and government and industry leaders to learn together, collaborate, and innovate.
