Your task
Individually, you are required to write a 2000-word analysis based on the annual report provided in MyKBS,
under the assessments tab.
Assessment Description.
In this assessment, students will be given an opportunity to analyse the environment of healthcare management
in Australia and the increasing need to deliver better value to all stakeholders by applying the principles of best
practice leadership, team-building and organisational design in a healthcare setting. You will need to demonstrate
an understanding of the policy framework and the system dynamics driving change in the healthcare sector and
an ability to evaluate the importance of sound financial management for healthcare organisations.
Assessment Instructions
An important skill that a healthcare manager must develop is the ability to analyse a health service or organisation
in terms of how well it is meeting its stated mission and objectives. Using the information from the Annual Report
that will be provided to you in electronic format, you are to write a formal report that investigates the central
organisation in terms of its:
1. Political and policy environment
2. Organisational design and coordination
3. Leadership and teamwork
4. Financial resource utilisation
5. Attitude to, and utilisation of, technology
From your analysis of these elements, you will attempt to identify areas where improvements may be sought. You
will justify your arguments for why these improvements should be introduced and present them in the form of
detailed recommendations to the Chief Executive and the Board. You will undertake whatever additional research
is required to give you a better understanding of the organisation and its activities and any research that is needed
for you to formulate your recommendations.
This research will form the basis of the Reference List of your report. The primary sources for research should be
relevant published academic journals and texts but other sources of information such as newspapers, magazines
and reports may also be of value. As stated earlier, the format for this assessment is a formal report. If you have
not undertaken a task like this before, your research would also include how to structure and present information
in a report format. An Executive Summary is considered to be a key component of a formal report and in this
instance is included in the word count for this assessment.
