Abstract

This study focuses on the boundary spanning strategies of intermediate agents involved in the implementation of Lean Management in hospitals. We show how these boundary spanners translate the meaning of this management concept across different hierarchical levels and how they shift strategies as a function of their intention to achieve acceptance or implementation.
