So the administrators, in governments and insurance companies alike, have been intervening to fix it, mostly by cutting costs. Verbal Judo is the classic guide to the martial art of the mind and mouth that can help you defuse confrontations and generate cooperation, whether you're talking to a boss, a spouse, or even a teenager. One of the issues Mintzberg addresses is the frenetic pace and relentless pressures of the job - most managers hardly have time to think. In this sure-to-be controversial book, leading management scholar and iconoclast Henry Mintzberg turns his attention to reframing the management and organization of health care. To cope with all this, Mintzberg says that we need to reorganize our heads instead of our institutions. So the administrators, in governments and insurance companies alike, have been intervening to fix it, mostly by cutting costs. The overall message of Mintzberg's masterful analysis is that care, cure, control, and community have to work together, within health-care institutions and across them, to deliver quantity, quality, and equality simultaneously.
