Umio supports Foresight Leadership in Nursing programme at University of Minnesota

January, 2018

We are very excited to announce a new partnership with the Katharine J Densford International Center for Nursing Leadership at the University of Minnesota, helping to shape their Foresight Leadership: The Future of Nursing and Health programme through application of Umio's Health Value Design® framework and methods.

The purpose of the Foresight Leadership initiative is to design and build a transformational leadership capacity ecosystem that is organized around five design elements: Purpose (why the work is important to the community), Principles (what rules must be obeyed in order to realize purpose), Participants (who must be included to achieve the purpose), Structure (how will organization distribute control), Practice (what is to be done-what and how will offers be to users and clients).

The University of Minnesota School Of Nursing and the Katharine J Densford International Center for Nursing Leadership will be the first to establish a nursing foresight initiative to educate, train, and consult with organizations about the use of foresight methods in nursing and health to support the health of people and communities. Products of such an initiative include courses, a certificate program offering, building on the planting seeds of innovation partnership, consulting partnerships, and expanding the scholarship and communities of practice and learning related to foresight and innovation.
