Describe the kind of entity you plan to establish by stating the service or services you propose to deliver and the kinds of clients or customers you would be serving.
Write a few sentences offering compelling reasons for your proposed venture, explaining why you believe it is needed and by whom it is needed. Also discuss any competition you foresee.

Create a mission or vision statement for your organization.
Guided Response : Review several of your classmates’ posts. Provide a substantive response to at least two of your peers.

Discuss the advantages and disadvantages of these business ventures from a strategic planning and operational standpoint.
2.Committees and Teams
Select either Option A or Option B to respond to and indicate within your post which option you chose.
Option A : Identify what you believe are the top three challenges in setting up a hospital-based committee from a managerial perspective. In a 250- to 300- word post, discuss your rationale and address the following questions:
Why are committees advantageous for health care organizations?
What are some of the steps that you, as a manager, could take to overcome these challenges?
How would you address conflict and/or divisiveness within the committee or team?
Option B : Committees have been determined as a necessary component to health care organizations. As a manager, you have been tasked to set up a committee with one of the hospital departments. In doing so, in a 250-300 word post, consider the following questions:
How much influence should the committee have in the overall management structure?
How would you maintain authority without adopting an autocratic leadership style?
How would you set up an employee team without violating union and labors laws?
