Resources: The Five Step Planning Process covered in class and the Sample Business Proposal at the Center for Writing Excellence
Consider the following scenario:
As the manager of a busy call center in a health care organization, you note that the volume of calls has doubled over the past year. Although you do not have the budget to hire additional staff, you do have an additional $20,000 to spend on your department to improve efficiency and customer satisfaction.
Write a 700- to 1,050-word proposal, using the Five Step Planning Process, that describes how you might improve efficiency and customer service in your department by focusing on teamwork.
Address the following in your proposal:
Why teams are essential to health care
How teams are used in other industries, such as aviation, auto racing, the military, and so on
How lessons from other industries might be applied in health care
Which organizational processes support problem solving
Cite three references, one of which may be the course textbook, to support your position.
Format your proposal consistent with APA guidelines.
