The second edition of Dr. Susan Murphy's book, Maximizing Performance Management, offers a treasure trove of wisdom, experience, and useful guidance in organizational leadership practice. Her words of wisdom have inspired my graduate students at Harvard and the University of North Carolina who have taken her lessons to heart as they develop into our nation's future health leaders. In this book, Dr. Murphy has distilled extensive research and her own decades of real-world experience into an authoritative and practical guide to "leading your team to success." I highly recommend this book to all who aspire to improving the performance of our nation's health system.
