    186 The Premortem to improve your business results 
    This week on The Business of Healthcare Podcast I discuss what is a Premortem?  
    It is when you ask yourself and your team what you can do to make this initiative fail, then work backwards to ensure that these things are avoided. 
    It's a great exercise to help you decide what you do NOT want to happen.  We asked the simple question “what could we do to make this fail?”

Great podcast that covers a range of topics, insight and learning for anyone interested in healthcare. Tara is able to bring out the best from all podcast guests by her conversational manner and deep listening for those "aha" moments!

As a guest on the podcast the whole process was made easy by Tara & her wonderful team. It also generated additional new thinking that I will be using in my business.

I recommend the podcast to my coaching clients and always listen to each new episode as soon as they are available.

Must listen

If you are intrigued by the industry it is a must!
If you are from industry it is a must!

Either way… it’s a must!

Tara is incredible and gives the public a behind the scenes of Healthcare that we’ve all been curious about!

Lolla_bennett ,

Enlightening. Honest. Motivating.

There is so much to take away from this show. Every show has takeaways that I can apply in my career. But it’s also amazingly entertaining and inspiring. Tara the host shares so many ideas and insights that I’ve not experienced from any other host.

Highly recommend if your in the NHS, healthcare or looking for leadership guidance (from any sector!).
