This credential series will discuss internal communications strategies around change management and the evolution of the digital workspace, as well as external communications torpics on the merging world of brand journalism—earned, owned and paid. Faculty will then outline the importance of developing a strategic framework for communications efforts, including 1) framing the strategy, 2) goal setting, and 3) principals of evaluation (measuring the impact). A panel of seasoned communications professionals will also share their advice on how to get a seat at the table by serving as a trusted senior advisor and applying skills around influencing, selling ideas, and driving meaningful change.

In this series, participants will:
   Immerse in key trends impacting health care communications professionals from industry experts
   Build skills in developing strategic communication and change management solutions.

Apply these learnings to real-world challenges. The course will culminate with individual case studies developed during the course focused around a specific challenge. Faculty and fellow course attendees will provide counsel and input.

Use Case Assignment
At the start of the series, participants will be asked to identify a use case problem/challenge that they are currently facing in their role. Throughout the series, faculty will guide them through the process of identifying goals, implementation strategies, and evaluation steps for that use case. A template will be provided and introduced early in the course, and discussion questions and content throughout the course will help guide them through the template and use case process. Faculty and fellow course attendees will provide counsel and input and participants will walk away with an actionable plan for that use case, and template for future challenges. At the end of the course, attendees may be selected to share their use cases.
