Leadership and management are increasingly considered important drivers of organizational performance. Yet despite the fact that they are viewed as essential components of integrated working, or partnerships, there is relatively little thoughtful work analyzing the relationship between the two sets of ideas. Until now. This updated second edition provides realistic, robust guidance for the leadership and management of interagency collaborative endeavors. It summarizes recent trends in policy, establishes what we can learn from research and practice, and sets out useful frameworks and approaches to address a range of problems that collaborations face.

Review Quotes
Peter Thistlethwaite, editor of the Journal of Integrated Care, on first edition
“At last! Here is a rich source of well-evidenced ideas about how leadership can affect the outcomes of partnerships. A contribution to academic thinking, and a practical stimulus for the manager.”
International Journal of Integrated Care, on first edition
“As a student and teacher myself of organizational management, leadership, networks, and integrated care this book is going to be placed conveniently close as a handy source of reference—perhaps it may even slip into my pocket.”
