In a recent article in The New Yorker, for example, Atul Gawande suggests that the Cheesecake Factory restaurant chain—with its size, central control and accountability for the customer experience—could be a model of sorts for health care. That's not as outlandish as it seems. The world's largest provider of eye care has found success by directly adapting the management practices of another big-box food brand, one that is not often associated with good health: McDonald's.
