Development and Strategic Planning in Healthcare


Why do you feel that an understanding of strategic alternatives provides structure and direction for a healthcare organization's strategic plan? Discuss one or two of your strategic alternatives.

As you are responding to others, note any common insights you may have with your peers. Do any of your peers offer comments for your strategic alternatives?

Please include the name of the person or question to which you are replying in the subject line. For example, "Tom's response to Susan's comment."

From your text, I think this statement is so important:

"Organizations typically have many strategic alternatives from which to choose – so many that selecting a strategy can become confusing at best and completely overwhelming at worst. Systematic classification of the strategic alternatives available, as well as a description of the intent and required conditions for selecting each alternative within each classification, can aid strategic managers in working though the “clash and conflict of divergent opinions . . ."
