Project Management for Health Care by David Shirley
“As someone new to working within the healthcare industry, I find Project Management for Healthcare, 2nd Edition by David Shirley immediately helpful and informative in my decision making. There is so much to love about this book. Most especially its brevity, clarity, and conciseness. This is not an everything you ever wanted to consider in managing projects in a healthcare environment, however, Shirley does create a pattern for applying standard project management practices within healthcare, a field experiencing disruption. He also draws attention to considerations around topics that are gaining traction and substance such as sustainability, green efforts and agility in healthcare. Shirley explains healthcare agility and lean project management. I am especially hopeful that the healthcare industry will further adopt an agile mindset and implement approaches friendly to agile development.”

"What I really like about this book is that it has adopted a pyramid style approach which means that it takes you through the basic foundational concepts and then deals with specific contents available to all the stakeholders like BODs, Shareholders, Internal/External Auditors, etc. Even the compliance part which is mostly theoretical is covered by way of touch-ups to give comprehensive information. What I have enjoyed the most are the variety of case studies both simple and sophisticated, real case studies, ones that are embedded everywhere in the pages of the book to explain different concepts which makes this book accessible even for students to understand this theory in a practical way.
Lastly, my favorite chapter is the last chapter on horizons of corporate governance, because it covers the current business environment (including info on technology) in the world at large with its future issues and challenges. This makes it unique and will enrich the reader with regards to what's going on now and what's expected in future."
