My name is Jim Doyle, and I have been focused on strategic change management for nearly 20 years following a career related to management and accounting. After 12 years in the Corporate world, I turned to the nonprofit sector graduating from the University of Missouri – Kansas City’s Bloch School of Management with a Master’s degree in Public Administration in 2010. My focus remains on Complex Systems throughout post-graduate work and how they affect organizations’ ability to change. Since 2010, I have worked in several organizations focused on change management and engaged in various consulting arrangements for Kansas City area nonprofits primarily around business planning and development. This consulting was/is as a Senior Fellow at the Mid-West Center for Nonprofit Leadership and my own business Small World Consulting.
Since 2016, I lead strategic change teams at University Health (formerly Truman Medical Centers) Kansas City’s only safety net hospital, where I teach Six Sigma (Process-Work) and Psychology of Change (People-Work) as change management and successfully implement strategic projects. In 2019, I started a Doctor of Public Administration program at Walden University focused on healthcare improvement. In addition, I teach Strategic Management and Six Sigma in the Avila University Professional Studies program.
I have a wife and three kids and live in the Kansas City area but dream of my home in the western mountains of Wyoming.
