Personal Business Commitments: Every year, the management team sets their personal business commitments (PBCs) that outline how they will achieve the goals put forth in Rouge Valley's Quality Improvement Plan and the three-year Strategic Plan-On-A-Page. The PBCs of the Chief Executive Officer set the direction for the rest of the management team, including vice-presidents and directors.

Download the RVHS Executive 2011–12 Personal Business Commitments. The PBCs have been captured in an Microsoft Excel spreadsheet, in which a set of commitments have been established for Rouge Valley's four strategic dimensions — 1) Access to Care, 2) Service Excellence, 3) Team Engagement and 4) Fiscal Responsibility. These commitments are first defined by a specific measurement and its performance target, and secondly defined by an overall corporate weighting that indicates the relative priority of the commitment. The commitments with the highest weightings will receive the greatest focus. The senior team members have each made personal commitments to the corporate commitments by giving their own weightings, which reflect how focused they will be on each commitment within their portfolios.
