Please do, not analyze or evaluate how well the HSO’s managers perform these activities since this is outside the scope of the assignment. As an example – when addressing planning concepts, describe how the planning functions are related to the role of a manager in an HSO. Then based upon your interview questions regarding several of the key/major concepts involved in planning, for example, does he/she perform the key steps involved in the planning process, does he/she perform/get involved in market audits, does the organizational stakeholders influence their planning process, etc. Briefly describe whether they do or do not perform activities related to these concepts. If they do, then briefly describe how what they do is related to these concepts. If they do not perform these concepts then briefly describe why they do not. Then proceed on to the next major area of the course (Organizing). Your task is to briefly describe the major concepts related to the lesson objectives and then to briefly describe their relationship or lack of relationship to the activities of your manager.
