The Transition from Closed To Open System

The Transition from Closed To Open System





Problem within an organization

Different groups have various problems, and therefore an effective decision making is needed especially in the nursing department since they save lives, and any mistake can lead to a loss of life (Carter & Chochinov, 2007). One time, as I was in my attachment program in one of the hospitals in the nations, I noticed something uncommon. Recently the hospital employed some new staffs who had the habit of leaving the patients in the rooms for a long time without necessary services. According to me, some of the workers are not eligible enough to work in such a vital health care with several health care demands.

A closed system perspective

This is a system that has little or minimal interaction with other systems or the external environment. This system allows the leader to apply only the in- house skills to for the case of problem-solving (Carter & Chochinov, 2007). Most of the managers using the system do not use various theories or perhaps models to allow them to use the right skills and methods of hiring the staff to the facilities. The closed systems train the leaders to depend on themselves while carrying out the office duties without involving the external sources.

An open system perspective

The system allows interaction with other systems and external environment in a carrying out most of the decision in the organization. In the system, the organization depends so much on its supportive environment for constant inputs to ensure that it is sustainable and interaction with the individuals to ensure the output is perfect. The interactions allow for the effectiveness of the systems. The systems will make sure that the hiring of the staff is done in the right way for an efficient output (Carter & Chochinov, 2007).
