Abstract

Advancing and managing individual organizational priorities and favorably positioning the organization within the wider system, while remaining within the system's vision, values, mission and strategic plan, constitutes the great the paradox of modern health care management. A new cohort of managers, skilled as change agents for linking-pin organizations, will be necessary to assure accountable management in an environment where no one unit, department, organization, and perhaps no system possesses all of the competencies necessary for provision of care.
