Contribution of Leadership and Organizational Behavior Description
The Case Study/Research Assignment demonstrates your familiarity with and understanding of the contribution of leadership and organizational behavior to the development of an enterprise.
This is a two-part project.
PART ONE: WRITTEN ANALYSIS, summary of 5+pages, typed, double-spaced, plus cover sheet, plus bibliography.
-Research a Fortune 500 corporation or top-level non-profit organization. Gain an understanding of the history, mission, pace of growth and expansion, financial profile (both past and present), organizational management structure (both past and present), as well as any remarkable events that impacted the growth and/or evolution of the organization (this includes any substantial marketing campaigns initiated by the corporation).
-Select a leader from your organization’s current executive structure. Gain an understanding of their current role and responsibilities (and duration within their current position), the previous positions held and duration, education and training received, personal background of the individual (if available), personal data/statistics/details (age, location, family), and any relevant events or situations that may have had an impact on their professional evolution. Compose a brief biographical narrative in 1-2 pages that details their journey to their current day position.
This analysis ultimately will culminate in the assessment of your selected leader’s characteristics (can be actual or assumed) and the implications that these leadership characteristics would or do have on the organization in present day. IN THE CONCLUSION, PLEASE EXPLAIN:
“Collision of company journey & leader’s journey and whether it is a good fit or not”
