Prepare an evaluation of the performance of the Radiology Department Manager for a hospital.
The service unit, or output, for this department is the number of procedures performed. A static budget was
prepared at the beginning of the year. Examine that budget in relation to actual experience. The relevant data
are included in Table 17-18 in your course text. The department manager is pleased because the department
has a favorable $120,000 cost variance. Evaluate the effectiveness claims of the manager using the budgetary
variance mode described in Chapter 17. What is your analysis of the department manager’s performance?
Explain your reasoning.
Your paper must include an introduction, thesis, and conclusion. Your paper must be four double-spaced pages
in length (excluding title and reference pages) and formatted according to APA style. Utilize three scholarly
and/or peer-reviewed sources (excluding the course text) that were published within the last five years.
