Health Care: Organizational Change

Today’s healthcare business environment requires organizations to undergo changes almost constantly if they are to remain competitive. Factors such as globalization of markets and rapidly evolving technology force businesses to respond in order to survive. Such changes may be relatively minor as in the case of installing a new software program or quite major as in the case of refocusing an overall marketing strategy, fighting off a hostile takeover, or transforming a company in the face of persistent foreign competition. In some cases, however, companies change under the impetus of enlightened leaders who first recognize and then exploit new potentials dormant in the organization or its circumstances. Some observers, more soberly, label this a “performance gap” which management is inspired to close. Your paper should be on Organizational Change. There should be 4 parts to your paper. The paper should be at least 7 pages including refrences.

Part 1- Theories about how and why organizations, groups and individuals change. Make sure you include the initial theorists as well as contemporary authors. Make sure Kurt Lewin and Sigmund Freud are included in your literature review.

Part 2- Is about a change you have been a part of. You will need to tell a complete story about some change event in your life. It could be at work, in a social group you belong to, or a personal change where someone you know or yourself has gone through a change. This should be a description of what, why and when of some change event. It should be an ethnographic account. Part 3 is a set of recommendations that you will make based on theory and experience. What could have been done differently to make the change effort you were involved in more efficient and effective? Part 4 is a summary description of candidates who recommended changes for the Affordable Care Act and includes what the changes will accomplish. For each political party, after you have identified the intended changes identify 3 major steps that each change for each party (Democrat and Republican) will require. In this section apply what you have learned from the change effort you were involved in in Sections 2 and 3 of this paper. The paper should follow APA format and must have at least 10 references.
