Nurse leaders will be increasingly called upon to collaborate in strategic planning as they partner in the redesign of health care in the United States (Institute of Medicine, 2011). To be an integral partner in health care redesign, nurse leaders must be able to leverage political power and data in strategic planning. Analytical tools, such as the balanced scorecard and SWOT analysis, are used to construct a solid, defensible strategic plan.

This assessment provides an opportunity for you to develop both the knowledge and skills required for strategic planning, using a balanced scorecard approach. With insight into the importance of an organization’s political landscape and a comprehensive understanding of the priorities of the organization you are studying, you are well-prepared to develop a strategic plan for a department or division within that organization.

  • Competency 3: Propose a strategic plan that integrates feedback from other disciplines and aligns with organizational priorities.
    • Create a balanced scorecard for a department or division.
    • Identify departmental strategic priorities.
    • Evaluate the effects of organizational policies on departmental strategic priorities.

Remember to use the same health care setting you chose in the previous assessment.

Departmental strategic priorities must align with organizational priorities. To prepare for this assessment, consider how you might best represent these alignments graphically in an attractive, professional manner. For example, you might choose a crosswalk table, Venn diagram, or other format that clearly illustrates these alignments. Be creative in your approach. Use the organization’s colors or design your own color scheme. Keep in mind that these conceptual representations are intended for executive leaders and other stakeholders in the organization and community.

Note: Remember that you can submit all or a portion of your draft plan to Smarthinking for feedback, before you submit the final version for this assessment. If you plan on using this free service, be mindful of the turnaround time of 24–48 hours for receiving feedback.

Instructions

  • Graphical representations showing alignments between the departmental strategic priorities and the organization’s strategic plan.

Strategic Plan Format and Length

Format your document using APA style.

  • Use the APA Style Paper Template [DOCX], linked in the Resources. An APA Style Paper Tutorial [DOCX] is also provided to help you in writing and formatting your appraisal. Be sure to include:
    • A title page and references page. An abstract is not required.
    • A running head on all pages.
