Dr. Will Ferniany, the CEO of the University of Alabama Health System remarked: “I can say without a doubt that the work of Dr. Bishop is the most important process we used at the University of Pennsylvania Health System to take us from ‘Good to Great’; at another Health System it was the difference in our making the Turnaround we absolutely had to undertake’.
Fred Smith, the CEO of FedEx remarked: ‘The necessity of Change is now a universal business mantra. Charlie Bishop provides an excellent blueprint for making change a reality rather than a slogan”.
