This essay is going it focus mainly on the change of a wider strategy transformation in the NHS on human resources and the changes in quality and value. However, it will illustrate the understanding of teamwork, theories, power, leadership, culture and change. It will also identify the advantages and disadvantages of the NHS Trust in the UK hospitals and how it is beneficial to the society (Jerald and Robert, 2003,Behaviour in organisation). Another aspect of this case study is on the basis of motivation and although this is an important aspect for job performance, along with ability.
