Organizing at the NHS (UK)

September 6, 2013 in Leadership, News, Organizing, Practice, Research

Dear readers,

This is one way the UK’s National Health Service drew on  organizing tools learned through their work with Kate Hilton, Chris Lawrence-Pietroni, Sarah Kopse-Scholberg back in 2010-11. While more in the direction of “mobilizing” than “organizing” in a traditional sense,  it is a provocative effort to  find ways organizing tools could be used to support the exercise of leadership in organization change, adaptation of traditional administrative hierarchies, and motivating people to find ways to translate their values into action, especially when these values, often what called them to their work in the first place,  clash with the economic or political structures of the organizations in which they find themselves working.
