Please read chapter 3 (Organizing for Success) and chapter 4 (Major Planning Process Considerations) of your text. We will start the third week with topics and questions from chapter three and four of your text.
Effective strategic planning must be process oriented using systematic elements for developing a successful strategic plan. The process for successful strategic planning development includes four categories of preparation. The categories are communication and expectations, management and leadership, context and mind-set.
Chapter 3 Questions
1a. Describe the four categories of preparation for effective strategic planning. You should have a total of 12 steps listed.
1b. Provide a short example of how you would apply a method for each step based on your current or future profession.
A strategic plan for any organization must have buy-in/support to be implemented and ultimately effective. There are key stakeholders that must be part of the process to ensure that the implementation of the strategic plan is effective and supported.
Chapter 4 Question
1. Identify and describe the key stakeholders needed for the successful implementation and support needed for a successful strategic plan. I encourage you to use the text and to think outside of the box.

Quite often, nurse leaders are faced with ethical dilemmas, such as those associated with choices between competing needs and limited resources. Resources are finite, and competition for those resources occurs daily in all organizations.
For example, the use of 12-hour shifts has been a strategy to retain nurses. However, evidence suggests that as nurses work more hours in a shift, they commit more errors. How do effective leaders find a balance between the needs of the organization and the needs of ensuring quality, effective, and safe patient care?
In this Discussion, you will reflect on a national healthcare issue and examine how competing needs may impact the development of polices to address that issue.
Post an explanation of how competing needs, such as the needs of the workforce, resources, and patients, may impact the development of policy. Then, describe any specific competing needs that may impact the national healthcare issue/stressor you selected. What are the impacts, and how might policy address these competing needs? Be specific and provide examples and provide references.
In this assignment, you will research the scope of practice for the role you have been assigned and review the practice act for that role in the state of Florida. You will also research the role of the nurse practitioner. You will gather the research in a short document and post it for your class members to see and use in consideration of their brief outlines for a collaborative, evidenced-base plan for the patient.
Research the scope of practice for your assigned role and review the practice act for Florida as determined in Begin Interprofessional Simulation.
Write a 2–3 page document compiling an overview of the intervention the professional you have been assigned and a nurse practitioner could provide in such a case.
Reference relevant, peer-reviewed literature. Follow APA style.

This is an ongoing assignment regarding a potential health promotion program at my local university (Kentucky Wesleyan College) to improve the professor’s daily activity. Components will include gym memberships to all employees, activity trackers and incentives given when certain activity levels are reached, partnership with current insurance provider (Anthem Health), and/or fitness classes offered on-campus during lunch hours by current Exercise Science students.The textbook used for this class is McKenzie J., F., Neiger, B.L., and Thackeray, R. (2017). Planning, Implementing and Evaluating Health Promotion Programs: A Primer 7 edition. Pearson Ed. For this particular assignment, create a needs assessment that describes and documents the health status issue that your project will address and the target population it will serve. The purpose of the needs assessment is to help reviewers understand the community and/or organization (i.e., the population) that will be served by your proposed project.
The needs assessment document should describe the need for the project in the proposed locale and include baseline data on the prevalence and demographic characteristics of the targeted population as well as supporting racial/ethnic data. The document should provide a description of the prevalence of health indicators (e.g., overweight, obesity) in the proposed geographic area. It should describe the current availability of preventive health services that address the health issue in the targeted group. In addition, discuss any relevant barriers in the service area that your project hopes to overcome. You should also describe gaps in the current provision of services as well as gaps in knowledge and the capacity of health care providers and key public/private community agencies to adequately screen, routinely assess, effectively intervene, and/or coordinate their efforts within a comprehensive network of preventive health services.
Here is a suggested structure for your needs assessment outline. It should be between 2 and 3 pages in length, APA formatting.
I. Health Status
a. Introduce the health issue (some materials taken from introduction)
b. How does the health issue affect the target population?
II. Community Description
a. Describe the setting, which might include national, state, local, or campus
information depending on the program scope
III. Needs Assessment (use what you have access to and please describe appropriate data points you would gather)
a. Qualitative assessment
b. Quantitative assessment
IV. Community Link
a. What is currently being offered to the specific population?
b. Will the proposed program be complementary, competing, or new to the area?

The Senior Capstone Project is not a traditional Capstone Project but one that is designed to place Sports and Health Sciences degree students in the role of the decision maker. You have been “hired” and given a “job/project” to complete. Each individual project is based on realistic scenarios and situations in multiple aspects of sports and health science businesses that involve a particular company, event, or cause. The objective of each Capstone Project is to require students to research information relevant and current in today’s sports and health science industry, make decisions that impact sport organizations, and apply theory to practice. The Capstone Project will focus on an individual situation that allows students to research and analyze information to provide a comprehensive presentation containing creative solutions. The presentation should demonstrate an inclusive understanding of program level objectives, key coaching, exercise science, fitness and wellness, and sports and health science concepts, critical thinking, reflective practice, constructive analysis, ability to make executive level decisions, and overall ability to write efficiently. Your Senior Capstone Project Reference Page and in text citations MUST be written in APA style. Capstone Project Objectives 1) Require students to research information current to today’s industry. 2) Make strategic decisions that impact sport organizations. 3) Apply theory to practice. 4) Enable students to execute creative solutions. 5) Demonstrate critical thinking. 6) Build/develop constructive analysis. 7) Demonstrate an ability to make executive level decisions. 8) Demonstrate ability to write efficiently. 9) Provide examples of leadership. 10) Establish methods of management that promote teamwork. Each student will select a specific Capstone Project scenario related to their concentration within the Sports and Health Sciences degree program. Exercise Science & Coaching: NCAA Division II Head Strength Coach You are the head strength coach for a NCAA Division II College. Use the NCAA website to view your school choices – choose an actual school. Each spring you present the up coming summer and next year’s plan of action for the strength and conditioning department. Within this presentation you will provide the athletic department and individual coaches with the University’s academic objectives, your personal coaching philosophy, athletic department philosophy, job descriptions of current staff, and a year round weight room schedule for all sports at your college. Present these components along with athlete weight room guidelines and strength and conditioning staff schedule for Athletic Director approval. Prior to this meeting you have had one on one conversations with each coach and coaching staff. These meetings lined out the goals and objectives for each team, based on last season results and in coming athletes. You will discuss these meetings in your presentation for your chosen 4 sports. You will develop strength and conditioning programs for a total of 4 sports at your University/College, 2 major men’s sports and 2 major female sports. You may only choose one gender for a particular sport. For example you may not choose, men’s and women’s basketball, men’s and women’s soccer, men’s and women’s volleyball, etc. Baseball and softball are considered similar in training and both sports cannot be used. The strength and conditioning program must provide clear team and individual position objectives. The strength and conditioning program must include a summer program and an in season program. No additional offseason program is necessary. Remember for the summer program, consider the athletes who do not have access to weight room equipment during the summer or are injured and insure modifications are present. Strength and conditioning programs must abide by the current ACSM resistance training guidelines and industry protocol for training for each chosen sport. Each team’s program must be able to be presented and accessible to players and coaches at the above mentioned yearly spring meeting after all post conference play is complete. *This Scenario is in a “world” where a COVID-19 vaccine has been created. There will still be sanitary precautions that are more in depth, but not necessarily to the extent that we are required to go through now. A table of contents is needed. Your completed Capstone Project will be approximately 20 – 40 pages long with a total of 15 -25 references. Don’t panic, this includes photos, charts, bullet points, descriptive text, etc
