Studer unplugged: identifying underlying managerial concepts. Academic Article uri icon


  • There is evidence that the application of Quint Studer's Hardwiring Excellence approach to organizational change is associated with significant accomplishments in hospitals. The authors' review finds the Studer approach to be closely aligned with management-related concepts of motivation and feedback, social networks, human capital, social capital, management by objectives, evidence based management, and organizational learning. The article is intended to familiarize more managers and management researchers with the content of the Studer approach, demonstrate its grounding in management concepts and principles, and stimulate additional discussion around the utility of such human resources-focused interventions in significant organizational change.
