MOOC Development Forum: Cultivating Open Innovation Health Enterprises
Create Learning Networks & Communities for Population Heath Improvement-PHI
Course Start Date: 20 Oct 2013
Transformational leaders, trainers and coaches help organizations and communities go beyond surviving VUCA (volatility, uncertainties, complexities and ambiguities) to thriving on VUCAR (vision, understanding, clarity, adaptability and resilience) to improve the health of the whole population. These leaders, trainers and coaches can create healthy epidemics, by authoring their own health improvement stories and exchanging stories into ever-widening circles. In this way, they galvanize organizations and communities to:
• Make catalytic innovations and peer health coaching programs widely available, anytime, any place
• Implement training programs at all levels
• Make healthy story-telling the norm
• Create upward spirals of positive social influences
• Build grassroots movements
• Cultivate health-promoting cultures over time.
This online course will assist in
a. Critiquing a draft document for cultivating Open Innovation Health Enterprises (OIHE)
b. Conducting interviews with faculty about this document
c. Creating a learning community to develop learning assets.
d. Developing a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) about cultiviating OIHE
Faculty will take turn in reviewing a document in progress. They will be invited to respond to three questions.
1. What positive impact did this document have on your understanding about fostering open innovation and creating learning networks and communities for population health improvement?
2. What are your suggestions for improving this learning resource?
These activities are in preparation for this forum.

VISION: Cultivate open innovation health enterprises—developing new processes, methods, programs, services and products through the collaborative, boundary-less exchange of ideas, between silos within and across organizations and communities.
OBJECTIVE: Create open innovation learning networks for population health improvement programs
Content: Open innovation health enterprises involve creating social networks of transformational leadership development and learning networks to foster the development of catalytic innovations—convenient, accessible, scalable and inexpensive learning processes for improving well-being, health, health behaviors and health literacy. These networks provide infrastructure support to hubs and networks of ecosystems that effectively and efficiently develop, test, evaluate, implement and disseminate catalytic innovations.
Evidence-based guidelines based on first-order change only marginally raises the floor of organizational performance, in terms of making population health improvement. These guidelines help the “average patient”, but not what works, in particular, for the individual. To overcome this scientific limitation, we can learn, research and collaborate on how to create our own health improvement stories. In other words, we can develop our personal evidence about deep change to overcome the limitations of evidence-based guidelines. To break through the organizational ceiling of performance, we must reach beyond patients entering our disease care systems. To work beyond the current constraints in our systems, we can use a variety of methods, such as peer health coaching, community of solutions and the ‘learning journey’ technique.
METHOD: Use an appreciative inquiry process to design an un-conference—a participant-driven, inter-active, open and dynamic workshop that facilitates group dialogues for the purpose of generating passion, ingenuity and collaboration in addressing themes that require diverse perspectives and stakeholder inputs. Workshop facilitators and participants will create the agenda and form small groups to focus on different aspects of cultivating population health innovations.
OUTCOMES: Increase awareness about the need for catalytic innovations. Join a learning community for faculty and course development on population health improvement to:
• Draft your own vision statement for a catalytic innovation
• Identify your learning needs about developing an innovation
• Create learning assets for building a Massive Open Online Course about open innovation
The long-term vision is to cultivate networked learning communities for developing open health enterprises. Request a full version of this manuscript-in-progress from Rbotelho@me.com.
