The Marcel Desautels Institute for Integrated Management (MDIIM)’s mandate is to address complex, systemic challenges through an integrative approach to management. Such an approach breaks down disciplinary barriers, embraces multiple perspectives and encourages holistic, context-sensitive thinking about organizations. Integrated management constructively faces the tensions of different perspectives on value to enact strategies that transcend rather than accept trade-offs.
“It’s all about appreciating the validity and innovative potential of different perspectives on value."
- Professor Steve Maguire, Director, Marcel Desautels Institute for Integrated Management (MDIIM)
The aim of the MDIIM's Health Initiative is to develop a framework to unify the relevant health activities within the Desautels Faculty of Management. While there are great strides being made in the field of health within the Faculty, there is a lack of integration among our areas. The goal is to provide an infrastructure that can serve as an integrative and unifying body of health-related projects.
