Leadership and management traits and theories necessary for managing a multidisciplinary and

multicultural health care organization to promote organizational effectiveness.

Outline

a. Issue/Problem Statement

At its simplest, organization effectiveness refers to the efficiency with which an

association such as a business or a company is able to meet its objectives. In particular,

organizational effectiveness is about each individual role, what he knows and how he can

perform better while in the line of duty. In other words, organizational efficiency can be

described as the capacity of a company to produce the expected results with very minimum

utilization of energy, money time, human and material resources. For that reason, this paper

seeks to establish how a healthcare organization can be improved win order to realize its

effectiveness in delivery and provision of services to patients.

b. Why was this issue selected?

Apparently, everyone is connected to health care: on a day to day basis individuals go to

hospital, clinics and other medical facilities to look for assistance from doctors, physicians,

nurses, psychiatrists and other medical professionals. Therefore, improving the effectiveness of

health care centers will not only help organizations to look better, but also help to improve

human health.

c. The perspective of approach and Scope of the paper

ORGANIZATIONAL EFFECTIVENESS
Notably, this research paper is primarily based on peer reviewed articles. In a more broad

term, this research stems from poor delivery of services in hospitals, clinics and other health care

institutions. Specifically, this research will however, focus on how leadership and management,

decision making, change and learning, group effectiveness, self organization and adaptive system

can be used to improve the overall performance of a health care institution.

Accordingly, leadership and management skills are essentially required to run any type of

organization whether a local, multidisciplinary or multicultural organization. Thus, the effective

leadership skills requires that each and every organization will enhance and promote its

effectiveness. As we speak, many health care institutions are experiencing lots of issues that

include performances issues, financial issues, recurring issues, health plan issues among other

issues. For that reason, more leadership skills and qualities are, therefore, required in order to

increase the effectiveness and efficiency of a health care organization.

Decision making on the other hand provides a platform in which doctors, nurses and

other medical practitioners can make decisions, thus, enabling them real time to make good

decisions, improve the quality of decisions, creating new ones, replicating relevant experiments

and implementing their results at the end that results to organization effectiveness (). Change and

learning in health care institutions allows stakeholders to learn, adopt, change, and align

themselves with day to day activities and leverage this knowledge to create effective delivery of

services to patients. As a matter of fact, group effectiveness is an important strategy that creates

ways in which stakeholders in a health care organization will work well together, particularly in

contribution of new ideas and innovations. Specifically, group effectiveness promotes an

environment of respecting others values and opinions while focusing on the organizations goals

and objectives.

ORGANIZATIONAL EFFECTIVENESS
Conclusively, focusing on organizational effectiveness plays a pivotal role in the overall

development of health care institutions. Particularly, it examines alignment between provisions

of medical care and improves them. Also, it improves the trade-offs that exist between reliability,

quality and speed in addressing patients needs. Additionally, there are strategies for higher

adoption rates in the institution particularly when stakeholders interact and share relevant ideas.

Finally, organizational effectiveness facilitates, catalyses, initiates capability building between

structure, process and people. Apparently, patients response, profitability, and increase in the

number of customers enquiring services from a health care organizations can be used to measure

or assess the level and position of a medical care institution.

From a conceptual analysis of stakeholders in a health care organization several models

have been conceived articulating how effectiveness can be achieved in health care. As

such, Mitchell (2012) argues that effectiveness can comprehensively be attained by

critically analyzing and judging stakeholders such as doctors, nurses and others while in

their line of duty. In that regard, more emphasis is directed towards helping stakeholders

understand their roles in the organization and making them realize the importance of

working as a team in achieving common goals and objectives. Also, stakeholders are

encouraged to respect each other and, therefore, develop mutual and positive contacts

among them.
