Strategic Planning in Health Care
SLP Assignment Overview
This assignment will build off your SWOT analysis. As the Organizational Development Manager (ODM) for the organization that you completed your SWOT Analysis for, you act as a liaison and advisor to the organization’s leadership, and begin initiatives within the organization. You have been given the responsibility to create a team (including yourself and five other members) to address a set of strategic issues that this organization is facing, found within your SWOT Analysis. Choose your team members based on the need of your SWOT Analysis. For instance, if you reported a weakness as “long wait-time in the ER,” it might be ideal to include an ER Nurse Manager on your team. Propose and evaluate a set of strategies for the organization. You should include at least 1 goal, 2-3 measurable objectives to support the attainment of those goals, and 2-3 action items to complete the objectives. The goal(s) are broader, the objectives have a number tied to them to assess, and action steps have deliverables. You will be presenting a PowerPoint (PPT) to the Board of Directors at your organization.
SLP Assignment Expectations
- You are to create a PPT with at least 8 slides, not including the title or reference slides, that includes the following:
- Introduction that explains the purpose of the meeting and/or SWOT analysis.
- Titles of team members (i.e., ER Nurse Manager, In-Take Operations Manager, etc.) and a short explanation for each member’s importance on the team.
- One overarching goal. This goal should address most of the issues on your SWOT analysis, thus it can be broad.
- Two or three measurable objectives to support the attainment of the goal.
- Two or three items explaining your team’s plan of action.
- Conclusion that summarizes the information included in the PPT, and an explanation that solidifies how your team will execute the goal presented and resolve the strategic issues.
- Your slides should contain bullet points only. Most of your explanation should be provided in the speaker’s notes.
