A healthcare organization’s mission should direct its strategies. Successful leaders make good decisions that advance their organization’s ability to achieve its mission—and thereby gain a strategic mission advantage—even in the face of uncertainty.
This book explores in depth the development and implementation of strategy to achieve mission advantage. It provides both the theoretical concepts and the practical tools leaders need to make better strategic decisions. Its cases and examples show how strategic principles can be applied to the intricacies of the contemporary healthcare system, always tying back to the key stakeholders, values, mission, and vision that underpin healthcare organizations and their purpose.
