The task is not easy, but it's important since without a good breakdown of systems into parts (variously called subsystems, modules, services or bounded contexts; we'll use subsystems to avoid confusion) there will be no good breakdown of large teams into efficient and independent sub-teams.

The Issue--This subsystem is not well developed in the typical MPO, as evidenced by the typical lack of teamwork among physicians.1 While there is often an adequate system for communication of clinical information, there is poor internal communication on business issues, and this limits the ability of the practice to think long term, to define its vision and its values, and to set clear goals.
