The Person Inside the Present: Narcissists Buy to Big Themselves Up

Christmas is around the corner and many of us will be thinking of what to buy our loved ones (or ourselves) this festive holiday.

Managing the myths of health care

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.
