Personal Insights and Analysis of the Organization/ Justification and rationale for viewpoint. After interviewing members of the organization, it was noted that they had the willingness to share the knowledge they had. For easy consultation services, the company is has a website where one can talk to the president of the organization one on one. The rationale is that the company is stable enough for me to invest my money since they offer money refunds if the client is not satisfied with the service he/she has received. While at the company I had to introduce some professional ideas that could help the organization to raise funds: selling of books like Emergency nursing bible, Business plan templates, and starting health care books, sell of DVD’s and CD’s.
