Reinertsen J. A Theory of Leadership for the Transformation for Health Care Organizations. The Reinertsen Group. May 2003. (Unpublished manuscript, revised January 2004.)
This paper proposes a conceptual framework for how to lead the quality transformation of health care organizations. It is useful for senior leaders as they develop and implement their next steps in an ongoing transformational agenda. It is also useful as a template for assessment of any one organization's progress in this difficult long-term task.
