Kaiser Permanente is a very large, integrated healthcare provider in the USA that has achieved extraordinary levels of both efficiency and innovation, thus representing an advanced degree of “ambidexterity.” This lecture identifies the key role of the principle that Professor Adler calls value-rationality in achieving this ambidexterity, and argues that effective implementation of this principle both encourages and relies on a shift of the enterprise towards a socialist structure.
