A "practicum" is a course of study that involves the practical application of previously studied theory. 

Hospital department managers rise to their level of responsibility by demonstrating clinical excellence, interpersonal and leadership skills, and attention to detail.  Yet they are often frustrated by their inability to fully grasp the fundamentals of labor productivity and how to interpret and utilize the reports and tools they are provided.

For over twenty years, Keith Gott has worked with hospital managers to demystify healthcare labor productivity concepts, analyze their departmental staffing requirements, develop action plans for necessary change and utilize tools for documenting progress.

This workbook is a distillation of the terms, concepts and exercises that are employed by Mr. Gott in his classes and seminars.

This book is meant to be a WORK-book!  Each chapter is followed by a review of important topics.   Key chapters have exercises applying concepts both newly and previously reviewed.  Solutions, not just the answers, to the exercises are provided.   Readers are encouraged to highlight, annotate and write their answers herein.

Chapters include:

  • Environment 
  • Productivity Terms and Concepts
  • Calculating Productivity
  • Position Control versus Productivity
  • Benchmarking - Where do I Stand?
  • What's in Your Toolbox?
  • Managing Productivity
 As the book's sub-title reads, the goal of this workbook is to give hospital managers improved familiarity and comfort with labor productivity management concepts, empower them to drive their departments' productivity (not just simply reflect shifting volume demands) and enable them to "talk like and with their Chief Financial Officer."

Purchasers of the workbook have access to online testing.   These tests, taken before and after completing the workbook, enable senior managers to determine both value provided by the workbook and areas wherein their managers will require focused follow-up.

There are, two versions of the book available - Volume One (the "blue book ") and Volume Two (the "red book ").

Volume One is for hospitals and health systems that include Education & Orientation hours in "Productive Hours" calculations.

Volume Two is for hospitals and health systems that exclude Education & Orientation hours from "Productive Hours" calculations.

From the Author:

Thank You for your interest in my book.

You will note there are, currently, two versions of the book available - Volume One (the "blue book ") and Volume Two (the "red book ").

Volume One is for hospitals and health systems that include Education and Orientation hours in their "Productive Hours" calculations.

Volume Two is for hospitals and health systems that exclude Education and Orientation hours from their "Productive Hours" calculations.

This book, like my teaching seminars, is dynamic not static. Accordingly, your feedback is encouraged and welcomed.
