Abstract:
Paper Presentation: The role of Magnet Project Director (MPD) presents a unique opportunity to showcase an organization's journey toward Magnet designation, to influence change, and to grow professionally. The MPD must be a master of many trades: a motivator, educator, data collector, organizer, team builder, writer, editor, publisher, event planner, and public relations specialist. While an exciting career challenge, assuming the MPD role can be a daunting experience. Each MPD must customize the course so that the Magnet journey is an authentic experience that captures the real life story of organizational excellence. New MPDs often seek informal guidance and direction from experienced MPDs, searching for a roadmap to lead their organizations through uncharted terrain toward Magnet designation. Preparing the documents of evidence is often viewed as a particular stubborn roadblock. In this panel presentation, three MPDs who have led their organizations through initial designation and re-designation offer practical tips and techniques that have worked to make documentation an exciting adventure rather than an obstacle course. Panelists present concrete examples of effective strategies to address each phase of the documentation process. Designed as a travelogue of suggestions, the session addresses three components of building Magnet evidence: 1) tools for gathering evidence, 2) tips for organizing and presenting the evidence, and 3) techniques for editing, appending, and publishing the documents. Panelists share examples of strategies, forms, templates, and lessons learned that can serve as a guidebook for MPDs aiming to tell their organization's unique story of excellence.
