Abstract

Suggests that the route to “excellence” is through the empowerment of workers, but argues that this might become problematic within the health care sector. Examines the development of empowerment as a concept. Points out four different types of worker ‐the rebel, the mainstay, the high performer and the miserable sod, and their possible reactions to empowerment. Proposes ways of adapting the negative characteristics of these workers in implementing empowerment. Concludes that future action should be based on the introduction of empowerment rather than its discussion.

Abstract

This article describes a number of significant changes taking place within the management education and development sphere within the National Health Service. It also highlights a number of important developments within the higher education world. At the confluence of these changes, it is possible to identify a new alternative to more conventional in‐house management training and the pursuit of postgraduate management qualifications. An example of this “third way” in action is offered through the description of an in‐house accredited management development programme run within an NHS Trust.
