Every business and industry has to accomplish objectives with limited resources, especially in the field of healthcare. Healthcare facility administrators who have to achieve results using fewer resources will understand the important role that staff productivity, job satisfaction, and motivation play in getting work done.

This course discusses the work team, the benefits teamwork brings to a facility, the disadvantages of using teams, and when it makes the most sense to allocate work to a team versus individuals.
