Quantum Leadership: Creating Sustainable Value in Healthcare, Fifth Edition is unique in that it addresses the postindustrial, complex and highly mobile organizational systems and emphasizes the characteristics, elements, and role of leaders in guiding individuals and teams through effectively navigating work in these essentially new models.
