After identifying your
topic, choose a health care organization in your area. This organization may be
small or large and may provide single inpatient health service or multiple
outpatient services; it is your choice. Consider your topic in light of the
leadership of this organization and research the challenges and successes it has
faced in managing operational effectiveness. You are welcome to use as many
research methods as possible to obtain information for your organization and its
managers (e.g., web-based resources, electronic articles, or personal
interviews). The more informed you are, the better prepared you will be to
complete your project.
Finally, develop a management training program
that includes relevant guidelines and information to combat the issues
identified in the selected topic, as well as recommendations for managers to
more effectively lead health care organizations. Your training program should
be in the form of a 20 to 25 slide PowerPoint presentation (excluding title and
reference slides) that includes comprehensive speaker s notes for each slide.
Utilize at least three to five scholarly sources from the Ashford University
Library and two to three current, scholarly web sources. All sources must be
cited according to APA guidelines as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center.
Your presentation must be engaging and relevant to your audience. Lines of text
on a slide will not be sufficient for this project. It should contain images,
graphics, and/or multimedia that communicate your training clearly to your
audience. For tips on creating an excellent presentation, read this overview.
