Two good articles

1 -- In a post below, I talk about Comes the Peace, a wonderful book by Daja Wangchuk Meston. Today's Boston Globe has a nice article by David Mehagan about Wangchuk. Please check it out.

2 -- This one is a little bit self-referential, especially the sequel about blogging, but it also has a very good summary of the issues faced by hospital CEOs. It is from HealthLeaders News.

The observation concerning the need for CEO's from other industries who "think outside the box" is interesting, in this time of disruptive transformation of health care delivery (which, frankly, is currently being more talked about than implemented). And of course, you, Paul, fit the mold of someone from another background and have been successful.
However, boards should not get caught up in this competition for "brash stars". The term brings to mind Enron, WorldCom, etc. - perish the thought! If the CEO is no longer to be involved in operations, then the board should be very careful of who is selected for COO - the person who will essentially function as the old concept of CEO did. Quality and patient safety are, first and foremost, all about operations!
