Introduction

In this case study, Lancet Laboratories, together with Pacific Knowledge Systems (PKS), provides a classic example of best-practice transformational change.

Highlights

  • It was the laboratory pathologists who were primarily tasked with driving the changes, and they produced the automated rules rather than needing to leave it to the technical IT staff. This enabled a simple decision-making structure to be implemented to deliver improved services.
  • By directly engaging its stakeholders, Lancet managed to achieve a smooth transition and clearly delivered its promised outcomes.
