Organizational Dynamics: Power & Influence

Organizational dynamics is concerned with how people within an organization behave and react to each other, and of how the organization can be made to work more effectively. Furthermore, organizational dynamics can be executed through various leadership tasks.

For this assignment, assume the role of a director at your local hospital. You have been tasked with presenting a PowerPoint presentation (PPT) during the Quarterly Director Training Meeting. You are to present on at least three effective methods to assist the departments within the organization to work more effectively. Conduct research and choose methods supported by scholarly resources with a proven record of achievement.

The PowerPoint should be a professional annotated presentation (i.e., voice-over, animations, pointers, etc.); provide substantial information; and be at least 10 slides (not including the title and reference slides).

For additional information on how to complete an annotated presentation, review the following source:

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.

Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.

Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.

The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
