My good friend Prof Annabelle Mark, (who is also an accredited practitioner, and one of the first although she has not put her profile up on this web site!) along with Ann Casebeer and Alexandra Harrison have just published the above titled book. It draws on papers from the fourth International Conference on Organizational Behaviour in Health Care, which was held in one my all time favorite places, Banff in Alberta Canada. There is a chapter by myself and Annabelle on the contribution of Cynefin to innovating methods in health care along with a lot of other useful material. To quote from the editors introduction to the chapter
Mark and Snowden utilize some specific innovations in health care to show how new concepts can help in understanding not only what something is but, perhaps more importantly, what it is not. They argue that the usual science base we drawn on when either attempting or assessing innovation in health systems is blinkered and insufficient if we are to really understand what is appropriate and where in this complex environment
I am going to try and get permission to publish that chapter on this web site on the grounds that to do so would help publicise the book. It contains a lot of good material drawn from both theory and practice. Overall more than the usual collection of papers at the end of a conference, this is a book which is worthy of attention.
