250-300 words discussion board due on Thursday
In everyday conversation many people use the terms goals and objectives interchangeably; however, there is a difference between the two terms, and this difference is especially important for any health care organization.
In this Discussion, you will refer back to the health care organization that you previously selected and worked with in Week 2. You will analyze the goals and objectives for that health care organization, if they exist, and create them if they don’t exist. The object of this exercise is to determine how well the company’s goals and objectives align with its values, vision and mission statements.
To prepare for this Discussion:
Review this week’s Learning Resources.
Refer back to the health care organization you selected for the Week 2 Discussion.
If the organization from Week 2 has goals and objectives:
Post a brief description of the organization’s goals and objectives, and the differences between the two. Include a link to the document containing them. Then, evaluate whether those goals and objectives are meaningful as part of the strategic planning process, and how those goals and objectives are meaningful. Finally, compose or modify one goal and one objective you determine need improvement. If you feel none need improvement then create a supplemental goal or objective for the health care organization. Justify why the goal and objective you propose are better than those that already exist and why they are meaningful to guiding the organization.
If the organization from Week 2 does not have goals and objectives or only has goals indicated:
Post two goals and two objectives you develop for that health care organization or a copy of the goals and three objectives you create. Then, explain why they are meaningful and appropriate to the health care organization’s strategic planning efforts.
Support your work with specific citations from this week’s Learning Resources and/or additional sources as appropriate. Your citations must be in APA format. Refer to the Essential Guide to APA Style for Walden Students to ensure your in-text citations and reference list are correct.
