Norfolk, Virginia (Vocus) -- The Strategy Group announces the October kickoff of a new forum for chief strategy officers as part of The Innovator's Studio, a collaborative incubator for market-leading health systems seeking to create competitive advantage through value innovation.
The Innovator's Studio for Chief Strategy Officers is designed to assist hospital and health system executives seeking to understand the evolution and emergence of markets in the health industry, and the evolving role of the chief strategy officer in healthcare enterprises.

"They see their future role as thought leaders," said Karen Corrigan, President of The Strategy Group and chief catalyst for the group. "They believe they drive and support organizational transformation; serve as advocates for the organization's long-term health; are catalysts for new strategic opportunities; and foster an environment for more spontaneous strategy creation.

They will come away with usable briefs, concepts and tools to make them a more effective strategist and key advisor who compliment the skills of the CEO.
Using a structured framework within a highly-creative, col¬laborative environment, clients will:
