Chuck Tryon, Chief of Program and Knowledge Management, Founder - Tryon and Associates, Professor - University of Oklahoma, Founder

Chuck is on faculty at OU Tulsa in the Clinical Informatics Department. His current assignment is managing the $15M AHRQ study to examine the implementation of evidence-based guidelines in over 250 primary care practices across Oklahoma. He also works with Hillcrest Health System to implement improved clinical processes at Utica Park Clinics and to reengineer hospital processes intended to deliver better patient care, facilitate transitions from the hospital and reduce unnecessary readmissions. He recently managed the curriculum development and student services components of OU Tulsa's new four year School of Community Medicine M.D. program.

Previously, Chuck served as the Chief of Program and Knowledge Management for MyHealth Access Network in Tulsa, Oklahoma. He was responsible for interoperability strategies and data integration needed to support the MyHealth health information exchange (HIE). Until 2014, Chuck co-chaired the Office of the National Coordinator's successful Beacon-EHR Vendor Affinity Group. This federal group is responsible for clarifying the definition of the HITSP C32/C83 Continuity of Care Document and piloting the Meaningful Use Stage 2 requirements for Transitions of Care.

The work at MyHealth extended Chuck's 2009-2010 experience in healthcare reform where he helped introduce a patient-centered medical home effort. During that project, he adapted the business event modeling process to capture clinical policies. Chuck is a primary author of business event modeling and has taught that technique to major organizations (including UPS and American Airlines) for over two decades.

In early 2015, Taylor and Francis published Chuck's second book ?Project Identification: Capturing Great Ideas to Dramatically Improve Your Organization.? His first book ?Managing Organizational Knowledge: 3rd Generation Knowledge Management ... and BEYOND? describes a project-centric approach to Knowledge Management. He has also created over a dozen multi-day workshops.

Chuck holds a master's degree in Knowledge Management from the University of Oklahoma and an undergraduate degree in Business Administration from the University of Tulsa. Chuck and his wife, Tresa, reside in the Tulsa, Oklahoma area. They have two daughters, Amanda and Casey and three awesome grandkids.

Project Management's Missing Link

Where do your projects come from? This could be the most overlooked question in all of Project Management. Many organizations, it seems, believe that projects arrive through a process no less magical than stork delivery. While formal processes for project initiation, execution and completion are firmly embedded in an organization?s project culture, little is said about project origins. As a result, projects tend to arrive wrapped in crisis with unrealistic expectations and unreasonable due dates.Long-time Project Management author and teacher, Chuck Tryon, introduces a formal, repeatable process to organize, evaluate and then select candidate projects for execution. And it goes a giant step beyond by providing you with a mechanism for identifying and capturing great ideas and inspired thought as new project proposals. Best of all, this approach will leverage an existing organizational asset - your knowledge workers - to address real issues and opportunities in your organization. This greatly benefits your organization and provides your staff with recognition for their creativity. The material in this new presentation is based on Chuck's 2015 book, PROJECT IDENTIFICATION: Capturing Great Ideas Dramatically Improve Your Organization.
