Delivering value through effective leadership


As many businesses and organizations reflect on the rapidly changing social and economic context and chart new ways of working, the health care sector has a unique role to play in guiding how we will achieve a healthier and equitable future.

Health care systems must find ways to honor, maintain, and celebrate what makes their community distinct. Leaders will need to embrace the non-financial, intangible value, it creates such as leadership, transparency, intellectual and human capital, and culture. Together these contribute to the organization’s ability to continue delivering value into the future.

Sustainability issues have been identified among the top 10 drivers of intangible value.
