assignment Exercise 1–2
Review the chapter text about organization charts. Also examine the organization charts
1.Refer to the Metropolis Health System (MHS) case study appearing in Chapter 25. Read about the various types of services offered by MHS.
2.The MHS organization chart has seven major areas of responsibility, each headed by a senior vice president. Select one of the seven areas and design additional levels of detail that indicate the managers. If you have considerable detail you may choose one department (such as ambulatory operations) instead of the entire area of responsibility for that senior vice president.
3.Do you believe your design of the detailed organization chart indicates centralized or decentralized lines of authority for decision making? Can you explain your approach in one to two sentences?
