Yet another human factor affecting healthcare are today’s customers themselves.

However, no one said this would be easy, now that we have transnational organizations like the world health Organization (WHO) and the World Bank that help accelerate the learning curve by identifying promising political or legal polices to help aid health care policy throughout the world.
“If you can sell your employees on the company's future and the importance of their role in it there are numerous advantages people are more likely to generate their own ideas, to contribute with enthusiasm, to keep slogging when it becomes unpleasant, and also to experience a sense of camaraderie and togetherness” (Spiro 2010) Another significant error that was made was in the HP story in which the vision was never communicated, step four.
