The session will deliver practical tools that can be used immediately to increase creative output and deliver bottom-line results. [9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., Room 106 & 107, MTCC]

  • Ensuring transparency in decision-making
  • Overseeing the HSFR evaluation and subsequent action-plans
  • Building the quality overlay into our funding models
