Impact Report to Senior Leadership

Impact Report to Senior Leadership

Impact Report to Senior Leadership

Write a 4–6 page impact report to senior leadership that identifies a nursing-related challenge, analyzes how it affects the organization from a nursing perspective, and details the new position.

Each organization has a unique structure that impacts the behavior of the organization. In health care organizations, this impact is on the ability of the organization to deliver quality patient care. Nursing is an essential component of any health care organization, and nursing leaders must understand the role of nursing and nursing leadership within the total organization. Understanding basic organizational structure, mission, vision, philosophy, and values will better prepare nurse leaders to improve quality and patient outcomes.

PREPARATION

Use the Suggested Resources for this assessment to study systems theory, SWOT analysis, and shared governance teams, as background for an Impact Report to Senior Leadership. The report includes a SWOT analysis. The SWOT Analysis Template is linked in Required Resources.

  • Study a facility in your area and examine its Web site and any available public documents to aid you in completing this assessment. You may wish to examine an organization where you work, where you have worked in the past, or where you did your clinical work.
  • Do not name the organization in your report; instead, identify the type of facility and location. Example: A rehabilitation center in a midsize Midwestern city.

Use the following scenario as the basis for your report:

Scenario

The unit-based Shared Governance Council of the organization where you work has identified a major nursing-related challenge (patient/staff safety, confidentiality, management/staff conflict, poor patient satisfaction survey scores, or nursing staff shortages) within your health care organization.
In an unusual move, your system administrator is considering creating a new nurse leadership position that would have the responsibility and authority to address this specific issue. As a member of the shared governance council’s subcommittee, you have been asked to write the committee’s final report.

DELIVERABLE: IMPACT REPORT TO SENIOR LEADERSHIP

Write a 4–6 page impact report to senior leadership that identifies the challenge, analyzes how it affects the organization from a nursing perspective, and details the new position.

  • Use systems thinking and leadership theory as tools to approach this problem.

Construct the report with the following headings:

The Nursing Challenge:
  • Identify the nursing challenge and its impact from a nursing perspective. Choose from:
    • Patient/staff safety, confidentiality, management/staff conflict, poor patient-satisfaction survey scores, or nursing staff shortages.
The System/Organization:
  • Explain how the nursing challenge creates a gap or conflict between the organization’s statements and practice.
    • Identify the organization type—that is, specialty hospital, teaching hospital, major health care system, et cetera, and summarize the organizational structure, its mission, vision, and philosophy statements.
    • Use systems theory and systems thinking to explain the gap or conflict.
SWOT Analysis:

Use the SWOT Analysis Template linked in Required Resources and include the SWOT analysis table in your paper.

  • Identify organizational factors that impact the situation using a SWOT analysis.
    • For example, a budget cut may cause short staffing, which relates directly to the problem.
  • What factors within the system may facilitate a solution for this problem?
The Position:
  • Assess how the new nurse leader position will have power and influence and impact patient outcomes.
  • How will this position affect change within the organization?
  • Identify key leadership skills, knowledge, or abilities required for the position.
Additional Requirements
  • Written communication: Written communication should be free of errors that detract from the overall message.
  • APA formatting: Resources and in-text citations should be formatted according to current APA style and formatting.
  • Length: The report should be 4–6 pages in content length. Include a separate title page and a separate reference page.
  • Font and font size: Times New Roman, 12 point, double-spaced.
  • Number of resources: Use a minimum of three peer-reviewed resources

To deepen your understanding, you are encouraged to consider the questions below and discuss them with a fellow learner, a work associate, an interested friend, or a member of the heath care community.

  • What is the relationship between an organization’s structure, mission, vision, philosophy, values, and policies and procedures?
  • What strategies does your health care organization (or one that you are familiar with) use when making changes within the organization?
  • How do you see nurse leaders participating in the process of organizational change?

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.

Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.

Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.

The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.

ADDITIONAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE CLASS

Discussion Questions (DQ)

Initial responses to the DQ should address all components of the questions asked, include a minimum of one scholarly source, and be at least 250 words.
Successful responses are substantive (i.e., add something new to the discussion, engage others in the discussion, well-developed idea) and include at least one scholarly source.
One or two sentence responses, simple statements of agreement or “good post,” and responses that are off-topic will not count as substantive. Substantive responses should be at least 150 words.
I encourage you to incorporate the readings from the week (as applicable) into your responses.

Weekly Participation

Your initial responses to the mandatory DQ do not count toward participation and are graded separately.
In addition to the DQ responses, you must post at least one reply to peers (or me) on three separate days, for a total of three replies.
Participation posts do not require a scholarly source/citation (unless you cite someone else’s work).
Part of your weekly participation includes viewing the weekly announcement and attesting to watching it in the comments. These announcements are made to ensure you understand everything that is due during the week.

APA Format and Writing Quality

Familiarize yourself with APA format and practice using it correctly. It is used for most writing assignments for your degree. Visit the Writing Center in the Student Success Center, under the Resources tab in LoudCloud for APA paper templates, citation examples, tips, etc. Points will be deducted for poor use of APA format or absence of APA format (if required).
Cite all sources of information! When in doubt, cite the source. Paraphrasing also requires a citation.
I highly recommend using the APA Publication Manual, 6th edition.

Use of Direct Quotes

I discourage overutilization of direct quotes in DQs and assignments at the Masters’ level and deduct points accordingly.
As Masters’ level students, it is important that you be able to critically analyze and interpret information from journal articles and other resources. Simply restating someone else’s words does not demonstrate an understanding of the content or critical analysis of the content.
It is best to paraphrase content and cite your source.

LopesWrite Policy

For assignments that need to be submitted to LopesWrite, please be sure you have received your report and Similarity Index (SI) percentage BEFORE you do a “final submit” to me.
Once you have received your report, please review it. This report will show you grammatical, punctuation, and spelling errors that can easily be fixed. Take the extra few minutes to review instead of getting counted off for these mistakes.
Review your similarities. Did you forget to cite something? Did you not paraphrase well enough? Is your paper made up of someone else’s thoughts more than your own?
Visit the Writing Center in the Student Success Center, under the Resources tab in LoudCloud for tips on improving your paper and SI score.

Late Policy

The university’s policy on late assignments is 10% penalty PER DAY LATE. This also applies to late DQ replies.
Please communicate with me if you anticipate having to submit an assignment late. I am happy to be flexible, with advance notice. We may be able to work out an extension based on extenuating circumstances.
If you do not communicate with me before submitting an assignment late, the GCU late policy will be in effect.
I do not accept assignments that are two or more weeks late unless we have worked out an extension.
As per policy, no assignments are accepted after the last day of class. Any assignment submitted after midnight on the last day of class will not be accepted for grading.

Communication

Communication is so very important. There are multiple ways to communicate with me:
Questions to Instructor Forum: This is a great place to ask course content or assignment questions. If you have a question, there is a good chance one of your peers does as well. This is a public forum for the class.
Individual Forum: This is a private forum to ask me questions or send me messages. This will be checked at least once every 24 hours. Health Care Evolution Table Discussion

Today’s employee has different expectations from work than employees have had in the past. Employees want their organizations to offer extensive opportunities for growth, learning, and advancement. In addition, employees have expectations that go beyond the present. The vast majority of employees in the organization have aspirational desires for career advancement. A challenge HR professionals and learning-development staff and supervisors are experiencing is guiding employees towards their long-term goals. Some employees aspire to become organizational senior leaders and will likely be in roles that will prepare them for that opportunity. Other employees want specialized tracks to success, tracks that will move them into senior positions with responsibility over products and programs. Another group of employees isn’t sure what they really would like their careers to be and will benefit from exposure to different roles and responsibilities across different disciplines in the organization.

Employees often have visions of their professional future that require mentoring to achieve. Mentoring will maximize the benefit of the experiences, learning, and development they will have while working in your organizations. In addition to mentoring, many employees will need coaching at different stages of their development in the organization. Coaching may be needed for many organizational roles and activities.

INTRODUCTION

While everyone has their own process for writing, creating an outline is often an important early step in the process in all types of writing, even for the most seasoned writers. By creating an outline, you draft a plan that organizes your thoughts, helps you see gaps in your thought process, and enables you to decide where in your paper you will address particular issues.

An annotated outline is a document that organizes the main sections to be included in your paper. The annotations are based on thinking through your approach to the paper and developing enough detail that anyone who reads the outline can follow your thought process.

The purpose of this assessment is as follows:

  • To build an annotated outline that shows the key sections of your analysis, the ethical considerations, and the leadership and collaboration aspects that you intend to include in your capstone project. With this outline, faculty can understand the organization and purpose of your paper; upon approval, you may move forward to writing the capstone project (Assessment 4).
  • To help you manage your work because you will need to start researching now (if you have not already) in order to create your annotated outline.
  • To demonstrate that you know how to cite in APA format by including some quotations or paraphrases from researched sources. The sources you include in the outline may or may not be used in your actual paper.
  • To demonstrate your ability to create a well-organized document, suitable for academic or business, that meets established criteria.

ASSESSMENT DESCRIPTION

For this assessment, create an annotated outline that provides a framework of your capstone project. Begin by reviewing the MBA Capstone Project Description [PDF]. Your annotated outline must state the name of your chosen organization and must include the following items:

  • Identify the main sections to be developed in the paper and tie them to the project objectives.
    • In your key sections, you should use at least four main headings; these sections make up the body of your outline.
    • Each heading must have at least two sub-points to develop the detail required.
    • Include a description of each major point.
  • Identify where each supporting reference will be integrated.
    • Include at least one reference to support each major point of the paper.
    • Incorporate relevant quotes or paraphrases from a source that you might use for support, with an APA in-text citation.
  • Identify main points that address ethical aspects associated with your chosen business.
    • Ethical considerations/aspects should also be one of the headings of your outline.
    • Use the program outcomes to help determine the areas of ethics that you might want to cover.
    • Include at least one reference to elaborate on how you intend to cover ethics in your project.
  • Identify main points that address leadership and collaboration aspects associated with your chosen business.
    • Leadership and collaboration considerations/aspects should also be one of the headings of your outline.
    • Review the program outcomes to determine the areas of leadership and collaboration that you should consider.
    • Include at least one reference to elaborate on how you intend to cover leadership and collaboration in your project.
  • Identify main points of your recommendations. Your recommendations should also be one of the headings of your outline.
    • Identify credible evidence to support an analysis.
    • For the evidence you provide, include key points to clarify why it matters and how it will inform the analysis.

Your annotated outline should have these sections:

  • An executive summary.
  • An introduction.
  • The body of your outline should be comprised of at least four main headings with additional subheadings and points. (Never use the word “Body” as a heading or subheading.)
  • A conclusion.
  • References. Use APA style and formatting for all the sources you use in the annotated outline.

SUBMISSION REQUIREMENTS

  • Style: This outline should be written in academic format; refer to the corresponding MBA Academic and Professional Document Guidelines. It should be double spaced, use subheadings, and be well organized and well written.
  • Communication: Ensure written communication is free of errors that detract from the overall message and quality.
  • APA guidelines: Format your paper according to current APA style and formatting.
  • Resources: Use at least four resources from credible resources.
  • Length: Your outline should be 2–5 pages.
  • Font and font size: Use 12 point, Times New Roman.

It is highly recommended that you submit your outline to Smarthinking (linked in the MBA Program Resources) to request feedback on ideas and organization (that is, global issues). Smarthinking can be instrumental in helping you get a solid, flowing outline and foundation to your capstone.

EVALUATION

By successfully completing this assessment, you will demonstrate your proficiency in the following course competencies through corresponding scoring guide criteria:

  • Competency 1: Apply foundational knowledge and an understanding of business systems, processes, and technology within and across core disciplines.
    • Identify the main sections to be developed in the paper and tie them to the project objectives.
  • Competency 2: Integrate information across disciplines and from differing perspectives.
    • Identify where each supporting reference will be integrated
  • Competency 3: Think critically and analytically to provide evidence-based solutions to business challenges and opportunities.
    • Identify main points of recommendations.
  • Competency 5: Lead and collaborate in virtual, global, and culturally diverse environments.
    • Identify main points that address leadership and collaboration aspects associated with the chosen business.
  • Competency 6: Integrate principles of ethics and integrity into business decisions.
    • Identify main points that address ethical aspects associated with the chosen business.
  • Competency 7: Communicate clearly and effectively in a business environment.
    • Cite sources and references in proper APA format.

ASSIGNMENT INSTRUCTIONS

This assignment has two parts each. Include information from both Part 1 and Part 2 in the deliverable you submit for this assignment.

ORDER ORIGINAL, PLAGIARISM-FREE ESSAY PAPERS HERE

 

Part 1

For Part 1, review the SRS and identify all the data fields that must be captured for the database. Once you have you have identified all of the data fields, go through the list to consolidate and eliminate any redundant fields. It is not crucial that they are in the correct tables yet because that will be completed in Part 2 of this assignment. Note the data types and sizes for each of the fields. Section 6 of the SRS provides you with a list of the required tables, along with some of the data fields that must be captured. Refer to the SRS Review video (linked in the Resources in Week 1) of a walk-through of Section 6.

Complete the following steps for Part 1 of this assignment:

  1. Analyze the documents and determine the data fields necessary for the database.
  2. Consolidate and eliminate redundant data fields.
  3. Determine the data type and size for each field.
  4. Place your information in an MS Word document. Name your document, following this pattern: LastName_Week4.docx.
Part 2

For Part 2, create an ERD that applies business rules and processes to the database design. Use the data fields you defined in Part 1 as a basis to normalize the database, one normal form at a time. You are not required to submit each normal form because the list of required tables was already provided to you. However, it is informative to go through the normalization steps for each required table. Explain your database design choices based on the business processes from the SRS. Extend the ERD to include the column data types, sizes, and keys based on MySQL.

Complete the following steps for Part 2 of this assignment:

  1. Create an ERD and apply business constraints.
  2. Paste your ERD into your MS Word document.
  3. Normalize the data showing the ERD normalized in 3NF.
  4. Accurately define the column data types and keys for each data field.
  5. Explain the ERD and defend your design choices.
  6. Add this information to your MS Word document

In this example, we will review various source documents related to an order entry system and identify the data fields that should be present in the order entry system. These data fields can be converted to a database format by eliminating redundant data fields.

We will review various source documents such as the “Add Customer” document, “Categories and Product Report” document, “Place Order” document, and “Order Details Report” document.

First, let us analyze the “Add Customer” document. The fields present in the document are as follows:

  • First Name
  • Last Name
  • Address
  • City
  • State
  • Zip
  • Phone
  • Email

Next, we will consolidate these data fields. We can create a database table called “customer,” which will contain the fields present in the “Add Customer” document. This table should have a primary key that uniquely identifies each row in the table “customer.” Among the fields, first name, last name, address, city, state, or zip cannot be considered as the primary key because two customers might have the same first name, last name, address, city, state, or zip. Phone and email are unique to each customer. However, considering the size of these fields, they should not be declared as primary keys. ITEC 5020 Capella University Data Modeling and Design Paper

To solve the issue of the primary key, each customer can be assigned a unique id. The “customer” table will look something like the following:

id first_name last_name address city state zip phone email
1 Harry Smith 107 Pega Street Los Angeles California 90086 357-8076 harrysmith@abc.com
2 Kane Williams 897 Harwin Street Miami Florida 33120 231-9065 kanewilliams@abc.com

Table “customer”

The “customer” table does not contain any redundant data. Hence, this table should not be normalized.

The “id” of a customer will be an integer value. However, we will declare the data type of “id” as “serial.” The advantage of using “serial” data type is that when a new customer is added, his/her “id” will be automatically generated. Suppose there are three customers. When a new customer is added, his/her “id” will be 4. For the rest of the fields, we will declare the data type as “varchar.” The data type “varchar” is used when the size of the data entered in a column is not fixed.

Now, let’s see the data types and size of the fields of “customer” table:

Fields Data Type Data Size
id (primary key) serial 4 bytes
first_name varchar The field can hold a maximum of 20 characters.
last_name varchar The field can hold a maximum of 20 characters.
address varchar The field can hold a maximum of 200 characters.
city varchar The field can hold a maximum of 50 characters.
state varchar The field can hold a maximum of 50 characters.
zip varchar The field can hold a maximum of 10 characters.
phone varchar The field can hold a maximum of 12 characters.
email varchar The field can hold a maximum of 50 characters.

Next, let us analyze the “Product Report” document. The fields present in the report are as follows:

  • category_name
  • product_name

We can create the table “product and category” considering the fields present in the “Product and Categories Report” document as follows:

category_name product_name
Bedroom Krys solid wood king-size bed, Olivia solid wood queen-size bed
Dining Kelly solid wood dining chair, Imara solid wood dining table

We can see that one category of furniture can have more than one product. In that case, the table “product and category” has a multi-valued field “product_name.” Hence, this table is not normalized. We will have to convert this table to the first normal form (1NF) so that one field contains a single value. The following table is in 1NF:

category_name product_name
Bedroom Krys solid wood king-size bed
Bedroom Olivia solid wood queen-size bed
Dining Kelly solid wood dining chair
Dining Imara solid wood dining table

The primary key of the “product_and_category” table is a composite key that contains the fields “category_name” and “product_name.” The table also contains redundant data. A database must have a single-column primary key in the second normal form (2NF). Hence, the table “product and category” is not in 2NF. We must split the table into two different tables: “category” and “product.”

Let us assign a unique id to each category that will be the primary key of the table “category.” The “category” table will look something like the following:

id category_name
1 Bedroom
2 Dining

Table “category”

The “category” does not contain any redundant data; hence, it should not be normalized again.

Now, let’s see the data types and size of the fields of “category” table:

Field Data Type Data Size
id (primary key) serial 4 bytes
category_name varchar The field can hold a maximum of 50 characters.

We will also assign a unique id to each product that will be the primary key of the table “product.” In the “product” table, “category_key” is a foreign key that references the primary key “id” of the “category table.” The “product” table can also have some extra fields such as “product_description” and “unit_price.” The “product” table will look something like the following:

id product_name product_description unit_price category_key
1 Krys solid wood king-size bed The dimensions (in inches) of the bed are H 36.5 × W 78 × D 82.5; the color is white; the warranty is 36 months. $350 1
2 Olivia solid wood queen-size bed The dimensions (in inches) of the bed are H 39.2 × W 65.5 × D 85.5; the color is provincial teak; the warranty is 48 months. $275 1
3 Kelly solid wood dining chair The dimensions (inches) of the dining chair are H 37 × W 17 × D 18; the color is provincial teak; the warranty is 24 months. $40 2
4 Imara solid wood dining table The dimensions (in inches) of the dining are H 45 × W 40 × D 30; the color is provincial teak; the warranty is 36 months. $300 2

Table “product”

Now, let’s see the data types and size of the fields of “product” table:

Fields Data Type Data Size
id (primary key) serial 4 bytes
product_name varchar The field can hold a maximum of 200 characters.
product_description varchar The field can hold a maximum of 1,000 characters.
unit_price varchar The field can hold a maximum of 10 characters.
category_key (foreign key) int 4 bytes

Now, we will analyze the “Place Order” document. The data fields present in the “Place Order” document are “customer_id” and “product_id,” and they are already present in the tables “customer” and “product,” respectively. When the “customer_id” and “product_id” are selected and the “Place Order” button is pressed, a new order will be placed. We will create a table named “order” to store information about the orders. The “order” table will have the following fields: “id,” which will uniquely identify an order; “customer_id,” which is a foreign key that references the primary key of the table “customer;” “order_date;” and “status.” The “order” table will look something like the following:

id customer_id order_date status
1 1 2018-02-15 Delivered
2 2 2018-03-19 Pending

Table “order”

The “order” table does not contain any redundant data. Hence, it should not be normalized.

Now, let’s see the data types and size of the fields of “order” table:

Field Data Type Data Size
id (primary key) serial 4 bytes
customer_id (foreign key) int 4 bytes
order_date date 3 bytes
status varchar The field can hold a maximum of 10 characters.

 

Next, we will analyze the “Order Details Report” document. We can create a table “order_details” based on the Order Details Report with the following fields:

  • order_id
  • order_date
  • status
  • customer_id
  • first_name
  • last_name
  • address
  • city
  • state
  • zip
  • phone
  • email
  • product_id
  • quantity

However, the fields “order_id, “order_date,” and “status” are already present in the “order” table. Similarly, “customer_id,” “first_name,” “last_name,” “address,” “city,” “state,” “zip,” “phone,” and “email” are already present in the “customer” table. Instead of including the fields that are already present in the “order” and the “customer” table, we can include the following fields in the “order details” table.

  • order_id, which references the primary key “id” of the table “order”
  • product_id, which references the primary key “id” of the table “product”
  • quantity
order_id product_id quantity
1 2 3
2 4 2

Table “order_detail”

The table “order_detail” does not contain any redundant data; hence, it should not be normalized.

Now, let’s see the data types and size of the fields of “order details” table:

Field Data Type Data Size
order_id int 4 bytes
product_id int 4 bytes
quantity int 4 bytes

attachment_1Interview with a Health Care Leader

Samantha Mills

Capella University

MHA-FP5040

08/07/2019

 

A leader has to be a person with a vision. A leader is committed and has the drive to achieve vision and goals. Leaders tackle situations at hand and focus on problems that need to be fixed. The field of medicine is a professional governed by mandatory standards and regulations that are set by agencies where leaders must see that they are adhered to. These standards and regulations are set for oversight to manage the care standards and patient care services. Part of the major objectives constitutes enhancement of patient safety and to promote health care outcomes. With the extent of these medical standards and regulations, successful leaders are vital for keeping the operation compliant and providing guidance. Powerful leaders possess certain qualities which they exploit into organizational operations. This article will explore how health care leadership has played a role in ensuring that health care organizations are changing to global needs and how they manage change through an interview.

Interview with a Local Healthcare Leader.

Friday was a typical day, I stepped into Sophia’s office. Some of the caregivers were trying to get a little of her time, her VOIP telephones were ringing, and the suspended paging system was shouting her name. I sat on a chair that was next to her desk, trying to recollect myself and maintain calmness. We are both trying to get along before one of the nurse’s walked into the office with a notebook computer that wasn’t working properly. Probably, I was much younger than them and techie, I helped them fix before we resume our conversation. Her personality is overwhelming.

Sophia has been a professional nurse for approximately 19 years. She initiated her career in nursing at the medical-surgical units where she worked there for about four years. She then ascended into nursing cultivation for a good number of years. After working in the healthcare setting for six years, she advanced her executive limits by being employed as a home care nurse. She remained in this profession for thirteen years before she became a team leader. When I asked her about how she would delineate about style of leadership, she quoted that “the best leadership style is leadership by style and teaching”. She further explained that leaders in the field of healthcare need to work realistically, the healthcare environment is highly dynamic and cannot be contained within the four walls. As a leader, she utilizes impact and enlightenment for advice for courses, actions, and ideas. She utilizes skills to enhance revolution and long-term point of view. By focusing on the community and the people, she explains that she can inspire trust that enhances relations.

Organizational Change in Response to Global Needs.

About how organizations are changing to meet in response to global needs, Sophia explained that the current changes in organizations are pervasive since organizations have to struggle to adapt or shrink in the volatile surroundings of the global political and economic world. There are several potent forces in the healthcare environment, demographics, professionalism, competition and technological innovations are responsible for shaping the change in the organizations (Tkaczyk, 2015). And when these environmental changes occur, healthcare organizations must eventually change and today these changes must occur in a faster manner and rate unlike before.

Sophia explained that the most influential environmental change currently is technological change. This change affects more than income inequality, employment, and productivity. This change provides the opportunity of alteration of the nature of work itself. She explained that a variety of new technological advancement in the healthcare field has changed how work is done, the roles which workers play with regards to labor division, and how the changing roles impact on the organizational structure. She explained that change in organizations has impacts on;

  • The flexibility of the workforce and dynamism.
  • Alteration of forms of work, including contingent jobs and occupation.
  • Job satisfaction and demographics.
  • Job training/education.
  • Institutions in which people work.
  • And changes in the individual role of work.

Leadership Styles.

Sophia explained that organizational leaders are determined by the larger society often, and the society exerts some degree of influence over the organizational leadership. Society influences the beliefs and values of an organization. This insight is provided by the institutional theory. As a leader, one should have several faces that enables her to be successful. The general characteristics of leaders are that they should be dependable, passionate, charismatic, multi-task, problem solvers, and good communicators. As described by Decker and Sullivan, there are four major styles of leadership; bureaucratic, democratic, autocratic, and laissez-faire (Sullivan & Decker, 2009). The autocratic style of leadership emphasizes more on task accomplishment more than working relationships.

She stated that it is important to consider that relationship with staff is impersonal while the organizational rules are inflexible. As a leader, she recognizes the organizational needs and fosters that leadership style. She recognizes field knowledge, listening, and fairness as the major qualities of leaders. She believes in the combination of bureaucratic and democratic styles of leadership. According to her, the bureaucratic style enhances corporate policies and mandate compliance with regulations. As a good leader, she works in promoting a safe working environment, doing follow-ups and encouraging bottom-up communication for reporting. Her democratic leadership style enhances the ability to move ahead with dedication and integrity, with this style of leadership helps her to attain organizational visions passionately.

The Changes in Styles of Leadership.

After becoming a clinical manager, the leadership philosophy has changed for Sophia. This constitutes guidance inefficient quality healthcare provision in a highly inconsistent environment. Knowing the constituents of her job and asking questions are her essential aspects. She is aware of the end expectations and works tirelessly to attain them. Another highly dynamic element is Sophia’s comfort with conflict handling. Her greatest challenge is from her personality and in her role is the resolution of conflicts. Not everyone will always be happy with the resolution, but the most essential part is gathering relevant information as much as possible to see that the situations are handled most amicably. Decision making should be based on the information gathered rather than emotions. Another critical change in her style of leadership is her level of comfort with the bureaucratic style of leadership. She has to struggle with developing proposals for programs, learning policies of human resource, analyzing financial reports, and determining the best programs. Sophia recognizes that this portion is an essential requirement for her career development about her roles.

According to Sophia, homecare has been perceived as the most unpredictable environment especially for the staff since they are going to the unknown; the home of the patients. Most of the nurses under her leadership use private vehicles to navigate. Due to these factors, Sophia noted that the safety of the staff has remained to be a challenge. Another challenge includes patient safety and quality of care. As the nursing expectations continue to increase, there is a possibility that the quality of patient care might be under the risk of being compromised. Most nurses still work for longer hours, yet they are paid for fewer hours and this has contributed a lot to burn-out.

The management change is a process, techniques, and tools that are utilized to manage the people side to attain the desired organizational result. Sophia stated that the change in the leadership of the organization constitutes the organizational tools that can be used to help individuals to make personal transition effective resulting in realization and adoption of change.

Anticipating Community Needs and Monitoring Community Wellness.

Sophia in her position has a leader has developed several health improvement programs. To monitor the wellness of the community, she uses performance monitoring as a tool. This is a tool for evaluating for examining population-based activities of health care (Mackrill, Dawson, Garvey & Gould, 2017). And to achieve this, she has to utilize several stakeholders that have to coordinate with each other to provide a report. She recognizes the roles that several health agencies, healthcare providers, and stakeholders play in influencing community health. One of her critical tasks is developing prototypical sets of indicators that can be utilized by the community to monitor specific issues related to health and the roles of agencies of public health, personal healthcare, and other stakeholders of this matter who are expected to play a role in these issues.

Sophia stated that healthcare improvement in communities goes beyond the contributions of medical care and personal care service providers. The community measures have to be based on the broader community population rather than those receiving medical attention or individuals utilizing a particular health plan (Stoto, 2014). She has to learn about establishing links between the community and medical care. She also emphasized that there is a need to inquire from the potential audience to identify issues of interest and likely sources of data to come up with reports that can easily be utilized. She involves the community and responds to its concerns to increase the interest of the community and the ease of making them understand the outcome, specifically the negative ones.

Another technique of monitoring community wellness is the assessment of protocol for excellence in public health (Lewis & Reeves, 2011). Sophia indicated that this technique provides a process for assessing the community health, coming up with a community-based group to work on, and identification and prioritization of matters of concern and coming up with a plan for responding to it. The community-based activities of health improvements have led to the identification of several health interventional trials that target specific health issues. Performance-based assessment of healthcare has also necessitated the generation of report cards as part of an individual health plan for her organization. This is one of the indicators that has been widely accepted. Just like most of the healthcare organizations, Sophia stated that performance monitoring in healthcare to enhance improvement of quality and tracking of community benefit activities.

The purpose of the Organization and Specific Drivers of Change.

There are several aspects of the organizational environment that practice and research that are changing demanding leaders to redesign their organization. Sophia indicated that several factors drive change including; demographic trends, the changing technology, increase in scientific knowledge, and professional roles based on societal trends. Based on the Organization theory, the organization has to be compatible with the environment i.e. political conditions, social, and economic that can impact on the actions of the organization’s nature, actions, and survival for it to survive.

The most critical change in the business organization’s environment constitutes the shift to an information economy from an industrial economy. This is the most obvious contemporary determinant that redefines the nature of the organization. The field of nursing for Sophia has been evolving continuously since. Nurses are more educated and have been guided on evidenced-based research (Gaskell, 2011). And with this evolution, nursing leadership demands skills to efficiently perform with less without compromising patient care. As a healthcare leader, she places many concerns about patient safety and the rate of burnout of their nurse.

Capella University Interview Questions

I have three questions that needed to be answered in detail from a program management experience. Capella University Interview Questions

    You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.

    Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.

    Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.

    The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.

    ADDITIONAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE CLASS

    Discussion Questions (DQ)

    Initial responses to the DQ should address all components of the questions asked, include a minimum of one scholarly source, and be at least 250 words.
    Successful responses are substantive (i.e., add something new to the discussion, engage others in the discussion, well-developed idea) and include at least one scholarly source.
    One or two sentence responses, simple statements of agreement or “good post,” and responses that are off-topic will not count as substantive. Substantive responses should be at least 150 words.
    I encourage you to incorporate the readings from the week (as applicable) into your responses.

    Weekly Participation

    Your initial responses to the mandatory DQ do not count toward participation and are graded separately.
    In addition to the DQ responses, you must post at least one reply to peers (or me) on three separate days, for a total of three replies.
    Participation posts do not require a scholarly source/citation (unless you cite someone else’s work).
    Part of your weekly participation includes viewing the weekly announcement and attesting to watching it in the comments. These announcements are made to ensure you understand everything that is due during the week.

    APA Format and Writing Quality

    Familiarize yourself with APA format and practice using it correctly. It is used for most writing assignments for your degree. Visit the Writing Center in the Student Success Center, under the Resources tab in LoudCloud for APA paper templates, citation examples, tips, etc. Points will be deducted for poor use of APA format or absence of APA format (if required).
    Cite all sources of information! When in doubt, cite the source. Paraphrasing also requires a citation.
    I highly recommend using the APA Publication Manual, 6th edition.

    Use of Direct Quotes

    I discourage overutilization of direct quotes in DQs and assignments at the Masters’ level and deduct points accordingly.
    As Masters’ level students, it is important that you be able to critically analyze and interpret information from journal articles and other resources. Simply restating someone else’s words does not demonstrate an understanding of the content or critical analysis of the content.
    It is best to paraphrase content and cite your source.

    LopesWrite Policy

    For assignments that need to be submitted to LopesWrite, please be sure you have received your report and Similarity Index (SI) percentage BEFORE you do a “final submit” to me.
    Once you have received your report, please review it. This report will show you grammatical, punctuation, and spelling errors that can easily be fixed. Take the extra few minutes to review instead of getting counted off for these mistakes.
    Review your similarities. Did you forget to cite something? Did you not paraphrase well enough? Is your paper made up of someone else’s thoughts more than your own?
    Visit the Writing Center in the Student Success Center, under the Resources tab in LoudCloud for tips on improving your paper and SI score.

    Late Policy

    The university’s policy on late assignments is 10% penalty PER DAY LATE. This also applies to late DQ replies.
    Please communicate with me if you anticipate having to submit an assignment late. I am happy to be flexible, with advance notice. We may be able to work out an extension based on extenuating circumstances.
    If you do not communicate with me before submitting an assignment late, the GCU late policy will be in effect.
    I do not accept assignments that are two or more weeks late unless we have worked out an extension.
    As per policy, no assignments are accepted after the last day of class. Any assignment submitted after midnight on the last day of class will not be accepted for grading.

    Communication

    Communication is so very important. There are multiple ways to communicate with me:
    Questions to Instructor Forum: This is a great place to ask course content or assignment questions. If you have a question, there is a good chance one of your peers does as well. This is a public forum for the class.
    Individual Forum: This is a private forum to ask me questions or send me messages. This will be checked at least once every 24 hours.
