In the Module Two journal, you discussed external forces that could impact an organization’s strategic plan. After reflecting on your Module Two journal assignment, discuss why developing alternative strategic plans is important in order to meet the policy changes in the healthcare environment. In your paper, address the following:
- Explain the need for developing strategic alternatives and why strategic alternatives are important for a successful organization. Use scholarly and peer-reviewed sources to support your explanation.
- Examine industry policy changes and the need to develop a flexible strategic plan, specifically, how the source of the policy (such as federally mandated changes, industry best practices, or state requirements) impacts the need to develop a flexible strategic plan. Use appropriate sources to support your claims.
- Make strategic alternative recommendations for the healthcare organization in your case study. Be sure these recommendations address the specific policy issue changes faced by the healthcare organization.
