In many ways, Canada, the world’s second biggest country by area, is a global leader in the effective use of technology in its public health system.

Managing the myths of health care

Thu, 2012-11-08 10:22

Author: Henry Mintzberg

Abstract:

Myths impede the effective management of health care, for example that the system is failing (indeed, that is a system), and can be fixed by detached social engineering and heroic leadership, or treating it more like a business. This field needs to reframe its management, as distributed beyond the “top”; its strategy as venturing, not planning; its organizing as collaboration beyond control, and especially itself, as a system beyond its parts.
