Patients and visitors seemed happy with the new design. Soon, though, problems started coming to the attention of hospital administrators: rooms no longer appeared to be adequately cleaned, laundry staff was working overtime, and the parking lot was always full. The CEO put “two and two” together and realized that the expanded patient rooms affected more than just the patients and their families. As the project lead, what must you do upfront, to make sure your team understands potential implications of this design intervention BEFORE the new patient rooms are built? What resources would you need as a leader to ensure that you are successful with this task?

These two skills will ensure members keep time and stick to the goal of identifying how the music room will impact patients. I will also look for members who have good communication and problem-solving skills (Almost et al., 2016). An interdisciplinary team that communicates well with each other has the potential to excel, especially if they are good at solving problems....
