        Introduction


It was the best of times, it was the worst of times,
    it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of
foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the
           epoch of incredulity . . .

   Challenges
                       Questions
Are our learning and training models
   actually tied to professional needs?
Are our models methodologically robust
   or in practice in a complex world?
Do we sufficiently recognize human vs.
   rational behaviour?
Is our ability to adapt our ideas to
   changing reality impeded by our
   decision models?
Do we really take responsibility for our
   ideas?

             Challenges
                 With Multiple Constraints….

             Challenges



You cannot hope to build a better world without improving the
  individuals. To that end each of us must work for his own
     improvement, and at the same time share a general
responsibility for all humanity, our particular duty being to aid
       those to whom we think we can be most useful.

     Hosted by the Sauder School of Business, the UBC Centre
     for Health Care Management is an interdisciplinary
     response to the urgent need for management skill
     development and innovation in order to redesign and
     enhance service delivery and productivity within the health
     care sector.

     By drawing from the strengths of nine collaborating
     faculties and schools at the University of British Columbia,
     and from our health authority partners, the Centre strives
     not only to bridge the gap between health care management
     practice, research, and training, but also to foster
     improvements in health care for years to come.

                    Summary


       You can know the name of a bird in all the languages of the world,
     but when you're finished, you'll know absolutely nothing whatever about
the bird... So let's look at the bird and see what it's doing -- that's what counts.
  I learned very early the difference between knowing the name of something
                               and knowing something.
