Management Innovations for Healthcare Organizations : Adopt, Abandon or Adapt? (Hardcover)
About this item
Managerial panaceas, or popular management ideas presented as one-size-fits-all concepts suited for organizations across contexts, are generally either indiscriminately praised or discounted entirely. Rarely are they approached from an unbiased, truly critical viewpoint. Management Strategies for Health Care Organizations: Adopt, Abandon or Adapt? looks to apply a discerning, analytical eye to major management strategies to determine their applicability within the health care sector.
This book critically reflects on the relevance of different management ideas to health care organizations, determining which ‘elements’ of each idea are useful within the sector and which elements do not apply. Expert contributors analyze management strategies ranging from corporate social responsibility, to sustainability, to servant leadership and transformational leadership, to teamwork, and more, exploring the usefulness of major management concepts within the context of health care organizations.
This accessible research volume will help practitioners, scholars, and students in health care and health care management to adapt and apply the most relevant management strategies to their organizations.
