Building a Culture of Ownership in Healthcare

Building a Culture of Ownership in Healthcare

The Invisible Architecture of Core Values, Attitude, and Self-Empowerment

Using construction as their metaphor, authors Joe Tye and Bob Dent make a compelling case that a healthcare organization’s invisible architecture-a foundation of core values, a superstructure of organizational culture, and the interior finish of workplace attitude-is no less important than its visible architecture. Further, they assert that culture will not change unless people change, and people will not change unless they are inspired to do so given the right tools.
