management action plan

timer Asked: Dec 19th, 2014

Question description

Please include documentation of all six steps in your submission of the MAP assignment. You should begin working on

the MAP at the beginning of this course. It is due in Unit VIII.

I. Clarify the Problem or Opportunity for Improvement (OFI)

Clearly describe the problem or Opportunity for Improvement (OFI) that you have selected for your MAP. Why is it

important to resolve this problem right now? What are the consequences of not resolving this problem right now?

II. Clarify your Measureable Goal

Clearly describe the desired outcome from your MAP implementation. What are you trying to accomplish? How

will successful MAP implementation be measured and assessed? What realistic constraints do you have as you

begin creation of your plan? Consider limits on time, money, and other resources that are specific to your MAP.

III. Prepare a List of Possible Actions

Consider possible root causes of the OFI. Why do you believe the problem exists? Brainstorm and present a list

of all possible actions that you may need to take in order to achieve your MAP goal. At this stage, focus on

generating as many different options and ideas as possible. It is likely that not all of your ideas will make it into

you final MAP. Write down your ideas just as they come to your mind, trying not to judge or analyze them at this


In your brainstorming, be sure to consider ideas* involving:

 Leadership

 Governance

 Clinical performance

 Physicians

 Nurses

 Clinical support services

 Knowledge management

 Human resources

 Financial management

 Internal consulting

 Marketing

BHA 3002, Healthcare Management 3

*It is understood that some of these areas may not apply to your particular MAP, but all areas should at least be

considered in this process.

IV. Organize your Key Action Steps into a Management Action Plan

Decide on the sequencing of your Key Action Steps. For each Key Action Step, what other steps must be

completed before that specific action can be taken? Rearrange your Key Action Steps into a sequence of ordered

activity. Then look at your plan once again. Are there any ways to simplify the plan further before presenting it?

V. Accountability

For each Key Action Step, assign a responsible party or group within your organization (by position, department,

or team name, not by individual name), and assign a suspense date by which the Key Action Step must be

completed. Then, based upon all of your Key Action Steps and their suspense dates, provide a realistic

completion date for the entire MAP.

VI. Measurement and Monitoring

Now, explain in detail how you will measure the success of your MAP following implementation and how you will

monitor ongoing performance to prevent regression and loss of the positive change that has taken place.

Submit your assignment by the end of Unit VIII.
