Module 2 – SLP


SLP Assignment Overview

This assignment will test your knowledge of organizational structures. According to
Nagy (2016), organizational structures essentially are operating manuals that
illustrate how an organization is put together and works. There are various types of
organizational structures. Regarding organizational structures in the health care
field, an organizational structure that drives a small rural family practice would not be
efficient for a large urban hospital, and vice versa.

For this assignment, you should:

1. First, pretest your current knowledge of organizational structure types by using
this online

2. Watch the following video:

GreggU. (2019, January 14). Types of organizational structures [Video]. YouTube.

3. In a 2- to 3-page paper, describe the three types of Traditional Organizational
Design (Simple, Functional & Divisional) and provide an example of a health care
facility/organization that each design would ideally follow (i.e., Hospital –
Functional). (Note: You might want to consider matrix organizational structures, a
combination of both functional and divisional organizational structures.)

4. In your paper, dedicate a paragraph to the results of your pre-test. There is no
need to share your answers or score. Consider your results against what you
learned in the video. Ask yourself: Do you believe your knowledge was
increased? Did the pre-test assist with knowing the importance of organizational
structures for health care leaders? What other benefits did you obtain from taking
the test?
