HS410-2: Apply appropriate management principles to best utilize available resources to achieve objectives within a healthcare organization or system.
Your boss, the Director of Community Relations at a large health organization, has asked you to fill in for him while he is on vacation and to host a meeting of community leaders. The goal of the meeting is to consider ways to disseminate important community health bulletins. Many cultures are represented at the meeting and there is a discussion about how to meet the language needs of more than 20 different languages spoken in your organization’s service area. The meeting becomes tense when you must announce that your organization is only prepared to disseminate material in English and Spanish.
Briefly discuss the five principles of management. Describe how at least two of the principles may be applied for the meeting scenario.
Next, prepare a one to two page memo for your boss briefly summarizing how you concluded the meeting. More importantly, recommend to your boss at least one course of action for your organization moving forward. Be sure to fully support your recommendations.
