Students examine: (1) organizational restructuring in response to decentralization, (2) environmental scanning ,(3) systems behavior in hospital organizations, (4) multiple approaches to group decision making, (5) managing to achieve agreement in health organizations, (6) preparing, implementing, and communicating a budget that is based on limited resources within a business, (7) performance improvement concepts and tools in a healthcare organization, and (8) the construct of a “balanced score card” for a health organization. Students apply these concepts to the activities and assignments in this management skills learning lab.
