Leadership

Pick an organisation of your choice and write a case study applying leadership theories and concepts to a contemporary issue the organisation is facing.

To do so you need to analyse the (case) organisation of your choice by focusing on an issue the organisation is facing and the leadership implications. You have to use a variety of concepts and theories that were discussed in the module and that are relevant for the issue(s) you are focusing on in your analysis. You can pick one of the contemporary issues discussed in the module.

The question will encourage students to critically analyse the relevance and practical contribution of several theoretical models introduced in the module. Students should use research databases such as EBSCO and Business Source Premier to find academic and media literature on the organisation and issue of their choice.
