Research output: Chapter in Book / Report / Conference proceedingChapterAcademicpeer-review


Buurtzorg Nederland is being presented as a best practice for Humanistic Management in Practice. The approach chosen here addresses the worldview that is rooted in a humane perspective of dealing with customers and employees. Furthermore a few concepts will be introduced such as integrative intelligence, bureaucracy, and the social movement theory to show its purpose and relevance for today’s management approaches. As an underlying framework to understand how the organization delivers its services and how it is organized internally, a theoretical frame under the label of integrating simplification is presented in this chapter.
