3.0 out of 5 stars hard to follow April 13, 2013
By L Smith
Format:Textbook Binding|Verified Purchase
Obviously I did not pick this book to read for shear enjoyment. It was for a class I was taking. We used this book and Healthcare Strategic Planning by A Zuckerman. The book its self is fine, not to big and chapters are not too lengthy when assigned. The problem with this book is the thought process is sometimes a little schizophrenic. there are topics discussed in chapters that make no sense on placement, and the author jumps around a lot from topic to topic. This is ok if you have a class to discuss this and sort it out, but if you are getting this book to read solo, I wouldn't. Also you get pretty tired of the Coastal Medical example.

This work provides information that does not require use of the entire book to extract its lessons. One can skip chapters or use selected information as needed.

3.0 out of 5 stars It was okay.... May 9, 2013

Subject matter was okay but I found the text in general to be a little generic and boring. It's still helpful for those seeking basic info on management and strategic planning efforts.
