(Newswire.net – February 11, 2013) Camarillo, CA -- Mary Taylor has left her position of Staff Vice President, Care Management at WellPoint to return to the SecondWind BSD consultancy where she will focus on implementing organizational change.
In the last 3 years at WellPoint, Ms. Taylor led clinical operations standardization and reorganization resulting in a 20% cost decrease in 2 years, and provided change management support for the clinical departments of the Medicare Advantage program.
“My goal is to help executives make ‘change management’ an integral part of every corporate initiative” said Ms. Taylor.
Mary is no stranger to implementing change on large projects. Previously at WellPoint, Mary introduced online training to 17,000 employees on time and under budget while supporting change management during sourcing initiatives, minimizing turnover and productivity losses.
One of her higher-profile projects was change management support for clinical departments for the Medicare Advantage Program. This project was the first government mandated Affordable Care Act (ACA) health care reform initiatives. Mary’s leadership experience will transfer to other ACA programs as they roll out.
“There are many businesses affected by the Affordable Care Act and most are not sufficiently prepared to enact the changes this will bring” says Ms. Taylor. Few executives available today have had more involvement with implementing healthcare reform than Ms. Taylor.
Ms. Taylor specializes in implementing change. Programs she headed resulted in a documented $8,700,000 in performance improvement projects over one year. “I know I can bring similar improvements to new clients” said Ms. Taylor.
Ms. Taylor rejoins SecondWind Business Strategy Development as a program management consultant. Second Wind Strategic Business Design supports organizations faced with change and offers tools, guidance and direction to help businesses work through, and eliminate, resistance to change.
Second Wind works hand in hand with senior leadership to assess and identify ideas, insights and new directions. They give you a new outlook that allows driving your business and managing organizational change in a new way.
Second Wind teaches organizations how to change their cellular structure, how to ingrain change principles into their corporate DNA, how to transform the culture, increase the productivity and drive results through leadership training programs.
Ms. Taylor says of SecondWind, “Our change management strategies are both cutting-edge and battle tested. Our approach to ‘change’ is to help you take control of managing organizational change; we are the change management consultant, you become the change.
“All levels of the organization feel the effects of change. We work with your team to define your goals, break through barriers through initial planning, roll-out, training line personnel and management leadership training. Our process makes you the owners of your change management strategy.
“Although we have 15 years’ experience as a health insurance consultant and healthcare project manager, our change management strategies are valid for any business or industry.”
