Leading Healthcare Transformation provides a handbook of essential tools for defining transformational opportunities, leading high-functioning teams, being a good team player, and using evidence, measurement, and narrative for effectively communicating and fostering a change agenda. The book is punctuated by salient case studies that offer valuable insight into deploying change tools in real-world situations, illustrating not only technique, but the context of their application. In that regard, this is really much more than a `primer;' it offers both expert knowledge, as well as the wisdom borne of colleagues' experience and lessons learned.
