1. Critically evaluate through theory application how certain types of leadership/management styles differ depending on history, culture, geographic life and conditions and how they impact strategy, people performance and productivity.

The assignment brief is as follows:

You will produce a written report that critically assesses and evaluates your company and its leadership using Value Systems Theory (vMEME) and all the leadership theories it contains. On completion of this Unit you be able to meet the Core Learning Outcomes (LOs);

 

  1. Critically evaluate through theory application how certain types of leadership/management styles differ depending on history, culture, geographic life and conditions and how they impact strategy, people performance and productivity.

 

  1. Critically evaluate leadership problems and challenges and your personal leadership capabilities and critically analyse the need for future development.

 

 

Through application of Value Systems Theory you will have a tool (and the skill) to critically assess and evaluate all types of leadership theories and worldviews that include; USA, China, UK, France, Indian, Russia, Vietnam, Middle East, Africa, etc. Company culture and its leadership/management are different depending on the relevant Value System (life conditions and how individuals adapt to successfully compete). Inevitably this impacts everything about a company – strategy, people, performance, productivity, etc.

 

This assessment is divided into four equal sections weighting 25% each. These are presented as four questions. The structure for the written report should include the following:

 

 

I. First, briefly describe the background of Dr. Clare Grave’s Value Systems Theory in your own words. Then use a small example of what is currently taking place in leadership in the world of business, finance, sport, etc., or even in your sector to illustrate this theory.

II. Produce an evaluation of differing leadership styles and behaviours in an organisation from different cultural, geographic and historic perspectives. To enable critical assessment and analysis, describe your company’s culture, management and leadership using Value System Theory and Leadership Structure.

 

  1. Chose from one of the eight Value and Leadership Systems and Structures that best describe your company culture, management and leadership.

 

  1. Use a picture diagram to illustrate the Value System and Leadership Structure.

 

  1. Next describe what Value System and Leadership Structure is present in your company and leadership how this has evolved from past to present, what changes have taken place in the business environment – local or regional or global (Life Conditions), and how the company and leadership have adapted to those changes (vMEME).

 

Important Note: To write this you will have to read/refer to the Core Reading materials on Value Systems and Leadership Theory from BREO as well as and do research on your company’s history (Please refer to the Core Reading Schedule below)

(Approximately 750 words)

 

 

III. Produce an evaluation and analysis of particular leadership issues in an organisation through the use of relevant leadership theory. Describe in general terms current leadership issues/challenges in your organisation using Value Systems Theory. An example of this could possibly be issues/challenges your company is facing as a result of changes taking place in the business environment like competition, economic, security, on a local, regional, or global scale that your leadership and management must adapt in order to remain competitive.  

 

  1. Use past and present information from your industry/sector and company

 

Important Note: Please keep this part very general. This is meant to be a general analysis and description. This does not include offering/identifying solutions, giving advice or describing what specifically needs to be change or improved. You will be specific in LP2.

 

Learning Outcomes addressed: 1 and 2

 

 

IV. Discuss how your understanding of the definition of ‘leadership’ has evolved as a result of taking this course i.e. your perspectives on ‘leadership’ before and after the course and what has changed

 

  1. Here you should consider what you have learned about the topic of leadership in general. What did you think about leadership before the semester then after completing the semester?  As you should know by now there is no single, universal definition of what leadership is, or how you should lead. In this section therefore, you describe how your definition or idea of leadership has changed before the Leadership Project 1 and now at the end of the first semester. You could also discuss when and why different leadership approaches (using Values System Theory) may be appropriate in different contexts and circumstances.
