NHS could benefit from football managers

17th December 2012

A paper published in the British Medical Journal has argued that the health service could learn from football managers and their game strategies in order to improve services.

The author of the paper, Professor Alexander Clark, said: "Healthcare researchers can learn from football by describing the important components of interventions more comprehensively and, irrespective of results, using research approaches that better address the complexity of interventions and seek to explain outcomes better." He added: "The best managers can take people and help them perform above themselves. That's what the NHS needs."
