Theory U & the African Public Health Initiatives

THE AFRICAN PUBLIC HEALTH, LEADERSHIP AND SYSTEMS INNOVATION INITIATIVE:

This initiative will develop a replicable model for improving public health leadership and system performance using an approach called the Innovation Lab.

The Innovation Lab increases leaders’ effectiveness by cultivating their managerial skills and by addressing the attitudes, values, and relationships that drive behavior. It stimulates system change by enabling cross-sectoral leadership teams to take advantage of new opportunities and to clear bottlenecks.

The Innovation Lab in Namibia will convene healthcare leadership teams from government, business, and civil society.

Teams will be guided through an intensive leadership development and project-based learning experience over two years.

The pilot project of this approach seeks to benefit people who are underserved by current healthcare systems, particularly those living on less than $2/day.

The proposal has been cocreated by the Synergos Institute, the Presencing Institute, Generon Consulting, and McKinsey & Company in collaboration with partners in the global South and has been submitted to the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation for funding.
