Consider the following scenario:

You are part of the management team of a large rehabilitation center that provides short-term care rehabilitation services on an inpatient and outpatient basis. Your center is proposing a new addition of long-term care services, and with this expansion, you must hire and train several new employees. Your team will be responsible for developing a presentation to inform your selected audience of the proposed expansion and its effect on the organization.

In Week Two, your team will be responsible for selecting an audience and brainstorming on the Week Two key points to assist you with your Week Five Organizational Structure Presentation. Please note your team will be responsible for completing the outline for each key point in the assigned week.
