NURS 8302 Assignment Organizational Culture Assessment Tool

Your organization is ready to implement a quality improvement initiative; however, it is
becoming increasingly clear that perhaps not everyone is on board with the proposal.
What could be contributing to this potential resistance? How might organizational culture
impact or influence the ability to engage in quality improvement initiatives?

Organizational culture is the shared way of thinking or feeling in a given organization. This
culture creates the dynamic for a willingness to change and/or improve. For example, if an
organizational culture is one in which change is welcomed to improve and all voices are
encouraged to be shared, the implementation of a quality improvement initiative will likely be
accepted and supported. However, if an organizational culture is one in which the
acknowledgement of mistakes are penalized and only leadership voices are respected, the
implementation of a quality improvement initiative may be met with hesitation and skepticism.
For this Assignment, you will consider the impact of cultural and organizational readiness as it
relates to the implementation of quality improvement initiatives. You will consider the
leadership strategies needed to support these measures and complete an Organizational Culture
Assessment Tool.
To Prepare:
 Review the Learning Resources regarding the implementation of quality improvement
initiatives.
 Consider what stakeholders must be present to implement these initiatives, and reflect on
the leadership strategies needed for success in promoting quality improvement initiatives
in healthcare organizations and nursing practice.
 Select a healthcare organization or nursing practice (with which you are familiar) to
complete the Organizational Culture Assessment Tool.
The Assignment: (2–3 pages)
Complete the Organizational Culture Assessment Tool for the healthcare organization or nursing
practice you selected. Then, address the following:
 What is the state of cultural/organizational readiness for quality improvement?
 Is the organizational culture present for quality improvement?

 What leadership strategies are present in the organization to support quality
improvement, positive patient experiences, and healthcare quality?
