Assume you are the assistant to the executive at a local health care organization, planning a presentation on strategy to the board of directors (governing board) of the facility. As you prepare the content for the presentation, it is essential that you understand the role of the board of directors as well as the roles of the executive leadership team. You have decided to research these roles in terms of strategic planning. Your manager has asked you to prepare a summary of the differences between leadership and board governance in establishing strategic planning for a health care organization and submit it to him before the strategy presentation.
