Prepare a presentation of the policy proposal you developed in Assessment 2 for one of the stakeholder groups identified in your proposal. Inform the group about the future of organizational policy and practices, the current performance shortfalls, and the rationale for why the new policy and practices are needed. In addition, explain how the group will benefit from this change in order to obtain their buy in and support.
Note: Each assessment in this course builds on the work you completed in the previous assessment. Therefore, you must complete the assessments in this course in the order in which they are presented.
Improving quality and outcomes is a key focus for health care organizations. With a focus on quality, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) publish publically reported data online and update it quarterly, which allows patients to compare hospitals on a wide range of metrics. These metrics can also be used to inform policy changes at local, state, and federal levels.
It is important that health care leaders be able to clearly articulate policy positions and recommendations and garner buy in and support from stakeholder groups for policy and practice changes in their organizations. Unfortunately, there is often a lack of effective communication. Consequently, it is important for health care leaders, when leading change, to ensure that clear and open communication is ongoing and informative.
An important aspect of change leadership is the ability to address diverse groups of stakeholders and create buy in and support for your ideas and proposals for change. This assessment provides you with an opportunity to demonstrate and hone these skills.

Presentation Design Tips
Being able to effectively address any audience is a necessary leadership skill. Remember that you are the speaker, not a projectionist. Your purpose is not to present a slide show. Your audience is there to listen to what you have to say, not read your slides—or worse, listen to you read them. Design your presentation slides to compliment and reinforce your message and engage your listeners.
The following tips will help you create presentation slides that work to your advantage:
