Identify possible root causes of the opportunity for improvement (OFI). Why do you believe the problem exists? Compile a list of all possible actions that you may need to take in order to achieve your MAP goal. Be as specific and accurate as possible in considering the connections to the OFI of your identified root causes. At this stage, focus on generating as many different options and ideas as possible.
Be sure to consider, at a minimum, the following factors when brainstorming a list of possible actions:
- leadership governance and clinical performance of a healthcare administrator,
- clinical support services,
- knowledge management,
- human resources,
- financial management,
- internal consulting, and
First, create a list of your ideas, trying not to judge or analyze them at this stage. Then, following your brainstorming list, correlate your list to the need for political competence in relation to your OFI and the pursuit of health.
Note: It is understood that some of these areas may not apply to your particular MAP, but all areas should at least be considered in this process.
This part of the course project will be a minimum of three pages in length, not including the title and reference pages or material from previous project submissions. It should be organized well and contain an introduction.
