' It is so refreshing to find a book that scratches beneath the surface and really tires to look at the whole perspective.'

This book provides insight into the various manangement and organisational theories and influences which impact on healthcare and the implications for healthcare professionals. It will enable managers to gain a broader perspective on delivering efficiency and quality in health services. It provides a toolkit for individuals to pick from to maximise their potential for effective management. It its certainly more worthy than the 'MBA in a weekend' type volumes'
