Format: Hardcover
This is an outstanding book. While naturally oriented to strategic management of health care it is also a comprehensive framework to strategic management in general. The book's layout is that of a university textbook but it is also written in an enjoyable style. I read this book as a practitioner and not a formal student and found it extremely readable and helpful. The authors present both conceptual and practical tools for strategic management.

I was fortunate enough to be a student of Linda Swaynes @ UNC Charlotte. We were the first class to use this book. Not only was Ms. Swayne excellent at what she taught but the book was a tool that explained the theories in nice detail. I continue to use the book as a resource. I am currently a hospital CEO.

Format: Hardcover
This book is an excellent introduction at leading strategic work in the health industry. Too many organisations, especially in the health care sector, go about their daily work without any kind of formalised strategic process. Unfortunately in today's changing environment, this is not enough. This book will show you how to initiate and lead a strategic review or strategic plan development for your health care organisation. The process followed is clear and grounded in real strategy development. There are also a lot of very useful real life examples.
