- Develop a strategy map for a primary care dental clinic. Using your own professional and academic research, determine five challenges facing primary care dentistry, and develop a strategy map that this clinic should use to increase their market share in the field. Make sure that the strategy map includes eight initiatives and that they touch the four perspectives. Also, include targets for each initiative, and make sure that the metrics for these targets are a mix of leading and lagging indicators.
Beside the strategy map, you should also submit a document (or additional slides in the PowerPoint document with the strategy map) where you address how the challenges found influence the field of primary care dentistry. You should also discuss how the initiatives proposed relate to the challenges presented, and how could they contribute to the desired increase in market share.
A template for the strategy map is posted on Blackboard. You can definitely use the template to develop your strategy map.
