This report examines the design and implementation of the Joint Acute Wards (JAW) at the Hospital of South Jutland. JAW is a new way to organize a hospital ward, which focuses on interdisciplinary and team organization. The main research question is: How has the hospital management handled the managerial and organizational challenges related to the establishment of JAW at the Hospital of South Jutland? To answer our main research question Complexity Leadership Theory and Leawitts organizational theory is applied. The report concludes that the establishment of JAW has raised a number of conflicts. JAW places great demands on the leadership skills of the hospital staff, skills that have not been supplemented with adequate training. Furthermore the new wards challenge the physician’s professional authority. Finally the report concludes that the overall process did not take into account the existing organizational arrangements.
