Discussion #2 (ch. 5)
In chapter 5, the textbook discusses the encouragement of strategic thinking and the purpose of it. It also defines the difference between strategic planning versus strategic thinking. Healthcare as we know is somewhat behind the curve compared to other industries when it comes to strategic thinking. On page 91-100. The textbook describes theories and approaches used by other industries to promote strategic thinking.
For this discussion posting, pick one approach from the textbook and one approach from Chapter 10 of the assigned reading from Shortell and Kaluzny and compare and contrast the two strategies. Also, provide a explanation of why you chose the two strategies.
