A Patient Reader,
This review is from: Management Lessons from Mayo Clinic: Inside One of the World's Most Admired Service Organizations (Paperback)
As a career academic in a university business school I tried to read this book as a detached observer and student of how to build a truly responsive service organization. But I also read it as a five year patient of the Mayo Clinic. I can say that it was difficult to stay detached and objective when you see and feel yourself in the pages once again experiencing all of the various dimensions of the culture of putting the patient first. I have lived the compassion, kindness and core values that the authors capture so well in this wonderful book. I encourage anyone seriously interested in building and sustaining service excellence in their organization to seek out and read this book.
