Good lessons on leaderhip, change and adaptability. Personal perspective on how you get buy in, how one innovates and stopsmavericks going over the edge, Peter talks about the very ambitious process they used to try and make a situation where we never cut a child when removin ag plaster cast. to the extent that this becomes a never event.
