Both conceptual and practical tools

This is an outstanding book. While naturally oriented to strategic management of health care it is also a comprehensive framework to strategic management in general. The book's layout is that of a university textbook but it is also written in an enjoyable style. I read this book as a practitioner and not a formal student and found it extremely readable and helpful. The authors present both conceptual and practical tools for strategic management.

Excellent book

I would highly recommend this book. It is easy to read, methodical in approach and provides a balance of relevant theory and application. A useful resource for any healthcare organization expanding its services within existin country or beyond. Thanks extended to the authors...I look forward to other additions!!!

Excellent Book

I was fortunate enough to be a student of Linda Swaynes @ UNC Charlotte. We were the first class to use this book. Not only was Ms. Swayne excellent at what she taught but the book was a tool that explained the theories in nice detail. I continue to use the book as a resource. I am currently a hospital CEO.

A Must for the Novice Planner

This comprehensive and yet easily understood text provides the fundamentals of strategic management as it applies to most any health care organization. The authors' experience comes to life in a variety of real examples and cases throughout the text. My background and interest in strategic planning led me to thoroughly examine the step-by-step processes, and I was amazed at both the simplicity and applicability of each. Definetly a text that I will recommend to anyone entering the healthcare industry or strategic planning arenas. Not only was I benefited by the purchase of this text, but had the opportunity to meet these outstanding authors in person during graduate study/research.

exactly what I did expect

I have the book for two days and I like to read in it as I loved to read Tom Clancy's first stories, diificult to put down, indeed the first management book that I prefered to my used lectures in the evening . the content is what I needed in the field of stratégic management. it explains the fundamentals and give examples out of real live. there are some practical details which I see as very usefull for direct applications. I do not regret this this acquisition, the autors seem to have great experience, I found a lot of practical sens and no useless theoretical stuff. better, you can find your way in minutes through such a "big" book ad I found a lot of ideas of interest in Europe. I do recommend this and I am looking for more by the same autor.
