After convincing senior leadership at your hospital that developing a strategic plan is necessary, leaders have asked you to provide more detailed information on how to begin this process. Prepare a PowerPoint presentation for your next meeting with leadership to provide this information.

Be sure to focus on the healthcare field and internal and external environments when providing examples to illustrate your points.

Support your presentation with at least five scholarly resources. In addition to these specified resources, other appropriate scholarly resources may be included.
Length: 12-15 slides (with a separate reference slide)
Notes Length: 200-350 words for each slide
