You are a middle manager in a healthcare organization that has merged with a previous competitor. Up until now, employees saw the competition as an enemy that provided a poor quality of care. The new corporation, however, has in place several inpatient and outpatient services that your organization does not.
Write a 1,400- to 1,750-word paper in which you address the following:
- What affect will the sale have on the culture of the new combined organization?
- As a middle manager, what might you do to ensure that the combined staff will work together to provide quality care without taking on the competitive stance?
Describe what the organization will look like in terms of systems and shape.
Use the reading to provide a theoretical framework for your discussion.
Cite at least four references.
