Southern Baptist Hospital (SBH) had long resisted the use of marketing, believing it was not an appropriate activity for a nonprofit organization. By the mid-1980s, however, the erosion of its market share due to growing competition forced SBH to adopt an aggressive marketing strategy. Its primary initiative was a campaign of television advertisements aimed to reinforce for the general public the image of SBH as a high-quality institution. Because the organization was starting its marketing activities from scratch, ad production and airtime costs were expensive. The television commercials were professionally produced and received critical acclaim from the advertising community. Following the public’s repeated exposure to these advertisements, a hospital executive requested information about the impact of the advertisements. The idea to study the campaign’s impact had not been considered earlier, and a belated evaluation effort was mounted to determine the extent to which the campaign had achieved the desired effect. Much to the consternation of SBH administrators, the evaluation found that the ads had had virtually no impact on the public’s already high perception of the institution, and no improvement in patient volumes, revenues, or market share could be attributed to the campaign. SBH administrators, committed to an expensive initiative, rationalized that the campaign had not aired long enough to generate the desired effect and invested even more money in the initiative.

 After reviewing the above case, address the following points:

  • To what extent did SBH research the needs of its audience prior to developing a marketing strategy?
  • Does it appear that SBH has an overall marketing plan?
  • Does it appear that SBH had a significant grasp of the nature of marketing?
  • What are the implications of focusing marketing efforts on corporate image rather than the services the organization provides?
  • What are the implications of marketing to the general public rather than targeting specific segments of the market?
  • How much thought was given to measuring the effectiveness of the campaign going into the initiative?

Supervising personnel is a major responsibility for human services administrators. Effective supervision can have a direct impact on the success of an organization. Every organization has a unique culture that can influence supervision of personnel. Organizational culture involves the values, principles, and standards that drive the collective behavior of an organization. Factors related to organizational culture may affect the strategies, models, and approaches a supervisor employs when supervising personnel. The link between organizational culture and supervision may affect matters such as employee satisfaction, motivation, and performance. Well-supervised employees are more likely to provide a high level of service to clients.

It is important for you as a potential human services administrator to understand the culture of organizations with which you are associated as well as the factors related to the organizational culture. For this Discussion, select an organization with which you are associated or one with which you are familiar. Review Chapter 9 of the Graphic Novel and think about the cultural considerations that Kerry would need to make as an administrator.

By Day 4

Post a brief description of the organization you selected. Describe specific characteristics of the organization’s culture.

The board members were very impressed with your presentation and how you are moving through the product development process. Michelle is ready now to start looking at the promotional part of the plan. She has been reading technical publications that laud the advantages of high-tech or digital promotional tools (i.e., Internet, social media, blogs, etc.) over traditional approaches (i.e., TV, radio, newspapers, and magazines) to reach potential customers. You catch up with her in her office before she leaves on a business trip.

‘Michelle, I want to speak to you about the e-mail you sent regarding the promotional tools we should consider for the new product,’ you say.
“I have a few minutes before I have to leave,’ she says. “Go ahead.”
“Well, I agree that digital media is the trend, but I think traditional advertising and promotion should still have a place in the plans,” you say. “I know you don’t have time now, but I would like to talk about the advantages and disadvantages of each type of promotional tool as they relate to the target segment and branding strategy. When can we get together and talk about this?”
“I really do want to talk about this,” she says. “I need to know what type of media you think would be best for MM’s new product. Can send me an e-mail with your thoughts on the subject and I’ll read it on the plane? We can get together when I get back to finalize the choices.”
“Thanks, Michelle. I will do that,” you say.
