Book chapter, 2003

This book chapter treats certain parallels between health-care services and the three authors' experiences and insights from the automotive and manufacturing industry, as well as from dealing with public enterprises. Especially so with regard to the building facilities, and how such facilities are managed within the automotive industry and the university. Thereby drawing some more general and particular conclusion on how this ought to inflict hospital designs.
