Quantum Leadership: Transdisciplinary Leadership in Complex Systems

Rated 5 Stars by Doody's Review Service. Read the blog post about the review.

Quantum Leadership: Building Better Partnerships for Sustainable Health, Fourth Edition skillfully prepares graduate students to thrive in a world of healthcare reform, complexity, and essential caring service.  The Fourth Edition focuses on the current concepts of leadership, data, and research related to the complexities of leadership.  The text also emphasizes the importance of principle-driven approaches and minimizes specific procedure-based solutions.

This text is a seminal work around the complexity leadership as it applies to healthcare. There are very few other references that have the clarity, depth, and detail essential to enumerate this topic in healthcare organizations. It is especially valuable for graduate programs and DNP programs as it provides a foundation for contemporary leadership and emphasizes the characteristics necessary to lead complex organizations.

The Fourth Edition features an additional chapter on the complexity of leadership in health care reform in an effort to incorporate the newest requirements of the Patient Protection Affordable Care Act in a manner that is relevant to leadership development and capacity. Case studies found within each chapter help reinforce translational work while new application exercises found in the "The Quantum Workbook" are an excellent supplement for learning.

Additional updates to the text include: chapter podcasts, additional translational and learning material related to chapter case studies.  Lastly, all references have been revised and updated to reflect the most current evidence around learning leadership.
