Innovation and Organizational Change: A Mayo Clinic Case Study


  • Aug 27-29, 2019 at Mayo Clinic, Rochester, MN, Tuition: $3500  (#24394)   REGISTER


Go behind the scenes at The Mayo Clinic with FEI to personally engage with innovators, researchers, and world renowned thought leaders. Take a historical walk in the footsteps of two famous brothers and outstanding surgeons, Doctors William and Charles Mayo, to discover how they envisioned and created a learning community that has become one of the finest destination medical centers in the world.

Next, examine the newest thinking about how to establish successful workplace wellness programs, how to create effective public/private partnerships, and how to innovate for emerging trends in health care.

Finally, explore a creative problem-solving process led by FEI faculty that will enable you to develop innovative solutions to your own organization’s difficult challenges.
