There are different forms of strategies that different organisations exhibit. For instance, the typical healthcare organization exhibits a business strategy, an operational strategy, and a transformational strategy (Ginter, Duncan & Swayne, 2013; Shalowitz, Stevens & Kotler, 2013). The business strategy is elementarily related to how the healthcare organization approaches the extant marketplace. It may cover areas like the market segment that the organization focuses on, the geographical extent of its operations, and the products that it will be marketing.
The operational strategy elementarily concerns how the healthcare organization translates own business strategy or strategies into actionable, as well as cohesive, implementation plans. In putting together the operational strategy, the organization considers its capabilities and the required changes on the same and the technologies, personnel, and processes that it requires. The transformational strategy represents the organization’s indiscriminate transformation (Ginter, Duncan & Swayne, 2013). Notably, the strategy needs highly disruptive, as well as radical, changes in the organization’s technologies, processes, and personnel. Besides, typical, the strategy remains the province of organizational consultants and human resources professionals.
