Assignment: Developing Organizational

Policies and Practices

Competing needs arise within any organization as employees seek to meet their targets and

leaders seek to meet company goals. As a leader, successful management of these goals requires

establishing priorities and allocating resources accordingly.

Within a healthcare setting, the needs of the workforce, resources, and patients are often in

conflict. Mandatory overtime, implementation of staffing ratios, use of unlicensed assisting

personnel, and employer reductions of education benefits are examples of practices that might

lead to conflicting needs in practice.

Leaders can contribute to both the problem and the solution through policies, action, and

inaction. In this Assignment, you will further develop the white paper you began work on in

Module 1 by addressing competing needs within your organization.
