Leadership Development and Succession Planning
by Lee Perrett | Vice President at Coker Group  
The long-term success of an organization likely will depend on the people it chooses and develops as its future leaders. However, because career development and succession planning are seldom executed flawlessly, if at all, many organizations find themselves without a pipeline of qualified, talented, and capable people to move into key roles when vacancies arise. This shortage is an age old issue organizations face, and there are no easy or inexpensive remedies. However, there are solutions available and methods to avert the leadership deficit.

Myth of the Median
by Erica Lindquist, MBA | Staff Associate  at  Coker Group
As the healthcare industry moves from payment for volume to payment for value, the focus of compensation design has become more sophisticated. It is moving away from the "pick a percentile" method used to determine the productivity incentive rate per wRVU and adding other components on top of the productivity incentive. And beginning to focus on the true alignment of pay and productivity, while realizing that pay, per market data, is total cash compensation, which includes all other forms of compensation, not just productivity incentive compensation. 

Coker ValuePath Webinar Series
Learn how to successfully navigate the path to value with Coker Group's webinar series. Senior executives from Coker will present on the components related to the shift from volume to value.
