Committees and Teams
Select either Option A or Option B to respond to and indicate within your post which option you chose. Option A: Identify what you believe are the top three challenges in setting up a hospital-based committee from a managerial perspective. In a 250- to 300-word post, discuss your rationale and address the following questions:
- Why are committees advantageous for health care organizations?
- What are some of the steps that you as a manager, could take to overcome these challenges?
- 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:
- How much influence should the committee have in the overall management structure?
- How would you maintain authority without adopting an autocratic leadership style?
- How would you set up an employee team without violating union and labors laws?
