Path To Performance

UBT Basics

Unit-based teams (UBTs) are transforming Kaiser Permanente by changing the roles of union members and managers and creating an environment in which all employees are encouraged to think critically about problem solving and work innovations. They were launched in 2005 as part of that year’s National Agreement. The people who negotiated the agreement envisioned UBTs as a way to improve care by tapping into the knowledge and experience of frontline staff, managers and physicians. The Partnership unions have since reaffirmed UBTs as a platform for improvement in each National Agreement.
