Abstract (Summary)

This case study explored the strategies organizational leaders adopted to develop a team-based leadership structure over a 10-year period (1997-2007) at a stand-alone, not for profit, metropolitan, acute care hospital in California. Four major conclusions were drawn concerning the team-based leadership structure: (a) it was a phenomenon that occurred over time and evolved from various strategies used to address financial challenges; (b) none of the strategies employed were considered a failure; (c) multidisciplinary teams positively influenced the business aspect of the organization’s performance while simultaneously increasing the quantity and quality of its services; and (d) the organization’s work teams within the formal structure paralleled the functions and goals of the multidisciplinary team.
