Enterprise-Wide Planning: Programs of Distinction
posted February 15th, 2012
Members of the Programs of Distinction committee are developing a process to highlight the best of the best among the many signature programs that define and differentiate the Duke brand at the national and international level.
The committee’s goal is to identify transformative programs that cross disciplines and are at or rapidly approaching a truly unique level with the capacity of delivering superior clinical care that is tightly integrated with cutting-edge research and innovation.
To facilitate the selection process, the committee has developed a scorecard of criteria by which programs will be evaluated. The scorecard will provide a transparent and consistent evaluation approach and enable all Duke faculty and staff to nominate programs and fully understand the vetting process.
Once the nomination phase concludes, the committee will select the programs, then move into the following phase – determining what is needed to ensure that those programs continue to be successful and, ultimately, how that success is measured.
Programs of Distinction Goals
- Develop a definition of a Program of Distinction
- Develop criteria to rank and select programs
- Assess potential programs:
- Define opportunities for growth
- Identify research and clinical synergies
- Evaluate ability of programs to capitalize on existing resources
- Evaluate opportunities for philanthropy
- Identify barriers to success
- Identify outcome measures and an evaluation process to monitor the success of selected and future programs
- Establish mechanisms for future programs to develop into programs of distinction
