The challenges facing the healthcare industry are unparalleled in scope, number, and magnitude. Organizational realignments of health care systems, uncertainty about the course and impact of legislation, an aging population with evolving clinical needs, the rapid evolution of information management technologies—all combined with pressure to establish reliable systems of quality management have created an unprecedented environment for health care leaders at every level of the system.

This text advances a model of leadership that enables executives to steer their organizations through the maze of uncertainty created by legislative, economic, demographic, clinical, information management, and political change. With contributions from leading scholars and experts in the field, the authors skillfully demonstrate how the transformational demands of leadership can be effectively integrated with the transactional and operational necessities of managing.

  • "The author has discussed the complexities of leadership and broken the concepts into bite-sized pieces that are easily understood.  In addition, the text offers a pathway for the student to easily understand the concepts and build one upon the other."
    --Duane F. Napier, MSN, RN

  • "I enjoyed this book. The authors provide a new concept with CVF [Competing Values Framework], and the realistic and timely case studies provide an opportunity for important questioning and student interaction. The Affordable Care Act, marketing strategies, and technology are just some of the topics the book covers. It is well done and resourceful."
