“Developing a Strategic Plan” Please respond to the following:
- Examine the strategic planning process. Imagine that your organization is planning to build a pediatric clinic in your local community. Review the pediatric clinics in your neighborhood.
- Determine one external factor and one internal factor that you should consider in the strategic planning of your clinic.
- Determine three reasons why strategic plans fail. Recommend a strategy to overcome each of the reasons you identified and include concepts from the weekly reading in the textbook or from peer-reviewed journal articles.
Many of you are probably familiar with Boston’s Children’s Hospital. As we explore strategic planning this week, and you share your example with us, I want you to visit the website of Boston’s Children’s Hospital. Think about how they developed a strategic plan to serve the community and what would be some factors that helped them achieve the ranking of number one on the best children’s honor roll.
