In the second part of the final project for this course, you will draft a brief email communication. You will assume the role of the management executive who
received the proposal that you wrote for the first part of your final project.
First, assume that you will implement the proposal in whole. Next, draft an email
communication that explains the issue presented in the scenario and the solution you will implement. Your explanation must be supported by adequate
reasoning. Consider how you will make the issue and solution digestible for all of the employees in your organization; prepare your email communication so that
its tone and content are appropriate for your audience.
Specifically, your email communication must address the following critical elements:
I. Introduction: Identify yourself as a management executive and identify the issue.
II. Explanation of Factual Background
A. Explain the policy-making processes you identified above. In your explanation, be sure to explain how the processes will impact the
organization. You should assume that your audience knows nothing about traditional policy-making processes.
B. Describe which methods for financing, evaluating, and improving healthcare delivery, operations, and facilities are implicated. Assume your
audience needs only basic information about these methods in order to understand the reasoning for your decision.
C. Identify and briefly describe public health policy and population-health programs related to the issue. Call to attention any programs with
particular relevance to the organization.
D. Discuss how the issue implicates principles of budgeting, governance, and strategic planning. Approach this discussion from the perspective of
organizational employees who want to know how the issue may impact their work.
III. Next Steps and Organizational Impact
A. Explain the solution you will implement. Be direct with employees.
B. Discuss how the solution you will implement will improve population health for patients of the organization. Organizational employees may be
more committed to change if there is a clear link to health improvement.
C. Describe how the solution you will implement will utilize healthcare delivery principles and technology available within the organization or using
principles and technology that must be deployed in the future.
D. Discuss how your solution will use budgeting, governance, and strategic-planning principles to promote quality and organizational improvement
within the organization.
Part II: Executive Email
In Module Ten, you will submit your email communication directed to all employees of the organization. Review the critical elements set forth above. You should
also review the rubric to remind yourself of key components of the assignment. As you draft the email communication, think about your personal, professional,
and academic experience with change and management. How can the executive best craft a message that will resonate with employees? What information do
employees need to understand the purpose of this work? How much information is too much information? Why should the organization and the employees
devote time and resources to this work? This email should flow naturally from your analysis and recommendations in Part I; do not reinvent the issue or your
analysis. Your email communication should be driven by the critical elements set forth above, but it should not be weighed down with citations or references to
other materials. Speak to the employees as though you were having a conversation with them. The executive email should be a complete, polished artifact
containing all of the critical elements of the Final Project Part II. It should reflect the incorporation of feedback gained throughout the course, as well as reinforce
course materials you have reviewed in each module. This submission will be graded using the Final Project Part II Rubric.
