One of the most talked about and innovative cases in community care: the successful and award winning practice of Buurtzorg. There is only one simple focus: the wellbeing of the client.
Prof. Dr. Mathieu Weggeman, the Netherlands

All grounded theories are asymptotic, that is as close to perfection as possible. Sharda has come very close to achieving a perfect Grounded Theory. Read well and enjoy the conceptual level and integration of concepts!
Barney G. Glaser, PhD, Hon. PhD, USA

Integrating Simplification Theory shows in a lucid and convincing way, how constructing reality based on different sources and processes of knowledge results in new organization creation.
Prof. Ikujiro Nonaka, Japan

Sharda has seamlessly combined the Eastern and Western philosophies to explain human principles of organizing the reality around us. The book has truly brought out the "art of management." Dr. Madhumita Chatterji, India

The humanistic leadership of Buurtzorg demonstrates the Yoga philosophy which transcends the duality of matter and spirit as well as the duality of self and others, leading to radical simplicity. Sharda has provided a fascinating analysis of a fascinating case.
Prof. Laszlo Zsolnai, Hungary
