For more classes visitwww.snaptutorial.com Organizational Survival Strategies. This discussion has two options. Please choose either Option A or Option B to respond to. Be sure to indicate within your post which option you chose.Option A: Hospitals frequently seek ways to ensure survival. Sometimes an adversarial climate cannot be avoided when the action that is being considered is controversial. For example, a hospital may seek to expand its market reach by opening an inpatient drug treatment facility in a small suburban township. The county where the township sits has seen a steady rise in heroin addiction, as well as an increase in hepatitis cases. As a manager, identify the three possible categories of clients within this new clientele network. Give at least one example of a client for each category and explain the reason for your decision.Option B: In this increasingly difficult economic environment, many organizations have been forced to take drastic operational and systematic measures to stay afloat and maintain their position within the community. If you were a health care manager leading an organization in which its financial, political, and/or social position was threatened, what survival strategies would you employ? Please choose at least three strategies from your textbook to discuss and thoroughly explain the rationale for your choices.The Challenge of Change. Change is usually positive, but it can also be difficult to embrace at times. Employees can be resistant to change, while managers may feel that it is necessary for organizational stability. Discuss the challenge of change as it relates to health care organizations. What is the overall impact of change on the organization, its employees, and its constituents, and what role does the manager play as an agent of change? In addition to responding to these questions, review the examples of successful change in your textbook and choose two examples to discuss in greater detail. What did you learn from these examples? In each case, how did the individuals overcome the barriers to change, and what were the resulting benefits?The Health Care Scene: Contemporary Trends. As health care leaders, it is important to understand that health care is quite a dynamic field. Its constant changes are a result of continuing trends in regulation, policy, patient and provider advocacy efforts, as well as increasingly sophisticated technology and industry benchmarking guidelines. Review the possible topics for your Senior Project located in the Senior Project prompt in Week Five, and decide what topic your training program will address. If you choose not to select a topic from the approved topic list, you must have your original topic approved by your instructor prior to submitting this assignment.For this assignment, assess the contemporary trends in health care and be sure to include all of the following:1. Changes in client characteristics2. Regulation of the health care industry3. Reimbursement patterns and mandates4. Restructuring of health care organizations5. Impact of technology6. Ongoing social and ethical factorsAddress the information above as it pertains to your selected topic, in an 8 to 10 slide PowerPoint presentation. Additionally, your presentation should cover the following concerns: Overall, why should health care managers be aware of these changes and trends? How will each of these trends impact the specific topic that you will address?The information in this presentation will later be used as part of your Senior Project to set the context for the audience yo'wqHHHwqHPGoH presentation must include detailed speaker’s notes for each slide as well as a minimum of one to two scholarly sources from the Ashford University Library and one to two current, scholarly web sources. Examples of scholarly web sources are available in this week’s recommended websites. These sources will also count toward the required sources for your Senior Project. Your presentation must be engaging and relevant to your audience. Lines of text on a slide will not be sufficient for this assignment. It should contain images, graphics, and/or multimedia that communicate your training program clearly to your audience. For tips on creating an excellent presentation, read this overview.Policy and Planning Constraints. Locate an example of a policy or guideline from an external source to a healthcare organization. Explain how this policy or guideline may be a constraint to a healthcare organization’s planning, or how it may shape the healthcare organization’s philosophy. For example, given that the American Academy of Pediatrics offers guidelines on child vaccinations, these guidelines might impact the ability of the healthcare organization to deliver services to newbornsand infants. Using a similar example, as well as the characteristics of effective plans as your framework, discuss how proper planning can help organizations in their future decision making.The Control Process. The control process involves three phases that are cyclic: establishing standards, measuring performance, and correcting deviations. Examine the manner in which health care leaders progress through each phase of the control process to manage organizations. What is the management function of controlling as related to performance improvement? What tools are used to measure and monitor performance? Please describe at least two functions and two tools in your response.Senior Project Summary. Write a short summary paper on the selected topic from Week One, which outlines your Senior Project. In your paper include the topic, your thesis statement, your research methodology, your decision-making process for choosing your resources, and at least three resources you will be using. The Senior Project Summary should be two- to three- pages (excluding title and reference pages) in APA format as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center. Your summary must contain the following:I.

In a 250- to 300- word post, discuss your rationale and address the following questions:1. Why are committees advantageous for health care organizations?2. What are some of the steps that you, as a manager, could take to overcome these challenges?3. How would you address conflict and/or divisiveness within the committee or team?Option B: Committees have been determined as a necessary component to health care organizations. As a manager, you have been tasked to set up a committee with one of the hospital departments. In doing so, consider the following questions:1. How much influence should the committee have in the overall management structure?2. How would you maintain authority without adopting an autocratic leadership style?3. How would you set up an employee team without violating union and labors laws?Senior Project Progress Report. Complete a one- to two-page report on the progress you have made to date on your Senior Project. Your report and any citations used must be in APA style as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center. Your progress report should cover the following:1. Topic: Identify the topic that you have selected for your project and provide a brief explanation for why you have chosen this topic to address.2.

You are welcome to use as many research methods as possible to obtain information for and about your organization and its managers (e.g., web-based resources, electronic articles, or personal interviews).

Describe how Julie will have to proceed in establishing herself as the legitimate possessor or supervisory authority on the unit, and describe the sources and forms of Julie’s authority.Motivation and Conflict Resolution. Select either Option A or Option B and indicate in your post which option you have selected.In any organization, regardless of the industry, some level of conflict and/or office bickering is inevitable and may have a damaging impact on productivity and motivation or morale. However, it is the responsibility of the manager to ensure that conflict is avoided whenever possible and, when it does occur, that it is handled in an appropriate and respectful manner. With this in mind, listen to the podcast, Stop the Medical Office Bickering and respond to your selected option.Option A: Case Study: A Matter of Motivation: The Delayed PromotionReview the details of the case above from your course text, and respond to the following questions:1.
