Case study Leadership Matters is in the attached files
Working through the case study analysis process, you will have the opportunity to take an in-depth look at the OB issues that impact the outcomes associated with the decision-making process, thereby driving morale, motivation, and productivity.
The assigned cases focus on specific (real-life) OB issues like motivation, culture, and ethics encountered by managers and leaders that can be applied to your everyday encounters in the workplace and at home.
A synopsis is a brief overview of the case. Please prepare your synopsis as if I (and your classmates) do not have the whole case study. Your synopsis should be concise, complete, and fully describe the situation “as you see it.” The synopsis should not exceed four to five paragraphs.
At the end of your synopsis, you must identify three Organizational Behavior problems that must be addressed.
For each of the three identified problems, you must analyze them, drawing from the content covered in class. These analyses should identify the causes of each problem.
Each of the three Problem Analyses should be no more than three to four sentences in length. Be succinct.
For each problem, you must provide a solution. Recommendations must directly tie to the Organizational Behavior problem you identify. Support your solution with critical thinking that demonstrates an understanding of the course material, internet resources provided for this course, and real-life experiences.
Shy away from general statements and blanket conceptual recommendations that are not fully justified with the facts of the case.
Formatting and References
In addition to references in the textbook, you must include at least three quality outside references (properly vetted news sources, business publications, scholarly articles, etc.) to support the information you outline in your case study.
Clearly label and indicate each Problem Analysis with headings in your paper followed by your Problem Recommendation. Ultimately, the structure of the assignment should follow the 3-Step Problem-solving Approach:
- Problem #1
- Cause of Problem #1
- Recommendation #1
- Problem #2
- Cause of Problem #2
- Recommendation #2
- Problem #3
- Cause of Problem #3
- Recommendation #3
Your paper must also be formatted according to MLA guidelines (e.g., double spaced, 12 point font, and one-inch margins.) Papers must be five to seven pages in length. Both in-text citations and a reference page are required.
