Care Organizations and the Development of the Strategic-Management
Stephen M. Shortell and Edward J. Zajac,

A brief overview
of strategic management theory and the contributions of health
care organizational research to that theory. The main focus,
however, is on two subareas of investigation: strategic change
and adaptation and the development of strategic alliances.
These areas are selected because of their importance both
to the health care sector and to the study of strategy in
general. In each area we draw on recent research to illustrate
its potential contributions for further theory development.
