Question:

Ted
Jones, the Surgery Unit Director, is about to choose his strategy for creating
a capital expenditure budget funding proposal for the coming year.  Ted’s unit needs more room.  The surgery Unit is running at over 90%
capacity.  In addition, a prominent
cardiology surgeon on staff at the hospital wants to create a new cardiac
surgery program that would require extensive funding for more space and for new
state-of-the-art equipment.  The surgeon
has been campaigning with the hospital board members. 

What
should Ted decide to ask for? How should he go about crafting a strategy to
justify his request, given the hospital’s new scoring system?
