"Offers a clear insight into the issues facing leadership and management in IS. Extremely well written and easy to understand." Senior Lecturer, University of Worcester.

This book gives good insight into the leadership challenges for integrated services and highlights the need for new approaches within the sector.

The book is easy to follow and would appeal to a wide range of students at undergraduate and postgraduate level.

I used this more for working on course material and notes rather than recommending to my students - interesting

This textbook is well written and provides essential guidance for both qualified practitioners and those about about to qualify.
The use of case studies and activities assists in applying the principles

This is a useful book although the style is less academic than is required for this module, which is a professional doctorate. However, it provides a useful grounding for students new to the subject and has some useful case studies/exercises.

Good to have a book that starts from the premise of integrated working and relates this to the work context.
