Sensitivity: Internal Developing Leadership and Management

Sensitivity: Internal
The Task
Section 1:
Critically evaluate the contemporary definitions of leadership
and management examining current perspectives of the
roles and responsibilities of both leaders and managers
• This section should account for approximately 60-65% of your total
word count (probable ballpark 2,000 to 2,100 words)
• You should be using in the region of 20 – 25 appropriate and robust
academic references to supplement and validate your evaluation
Sensitivity: Internal
Assignment Considerations
• Only pick four or five key models or theories and focus your attention
on them (rationale is that if you try to focus on too many different
models or theories you establish no depth of awareness or
understanding in any of them).
• Make sure you use multiple academic perspectives when discussing
each key theory.
• Think about the evolutionary process of management and leadership
and consider writing your assignment through that mechanism.
• Remember to use both leadership and management theories / models.
• Remember also – you are not writing for you but for your audience (in
this case your tutors).
Sensitivity: Internal
Structuring Work
• Using the information provided in Lecture 4 (week of 22nd February)
build a body of dialogue around each key model or theory.
• Do not use single sentence, or simply use limited, paragraphs (2-10
lines) to create that awareness and understanding as this limits insight
and awareness of the point you wish to discuss.
• Construct good robust paragraphs using at least 3 (ideally 4) appropriate
academic sources to help inform the reader of the point you are making.
• Avoid using the same source multiple times in the same paragraph, it
slightly undermines the credibility of your evaluation.
• Each paragraph is more likely to be in the region of 15 – 20 lines and
using multiple academic sources gives the reader a chance to appreciate
the breadth and depth of your research (which is always a plus).
Sensitivity: Internal
The Task
Section 2:
Based on your evaluation in section one, propose a minimum
of three critical skills and behaviours required to be a
successful 21st century leader. Consider specific methods of
leadership and management development that could develop
these critical skills and recommend how to implement and
evaluate these development interventions effectively. (LO3)
(You may present your recommended interventions and respective
evaluations in a table format for section 2).
• This section will account for approximately 35-40% of your word count
• You should be using in the region of 10 – 12 appropriate and robust
academic references to supplement and validate your proposals
Sensitivity: Internal
Assignment Considerations

  1. Pick ONLY three skills and / or behaviours and construct a rationale
    outlining the purpose and value of these skills and why development in
    these areas would be beneficial for prospective 21st century leaders.
  2. Construct an implementation (How, Who, Where, When) and evaluation
    plan (with distinct mechanisms to measure the impact and potential
    success of your implementation).
  3. Point 2 can be constructed using a tabular format:
    Skill / Behaviour Method of Implementation Evaluation Measures
  4. xxxxx
  5. yyyyy
  6. zzzzz
    Sensitivity: Internal
    Structuring the Work
    • Section 2 is constructed of two elements:
    • Element 1 discusses the three skills or behaviours you feel would be
    useful to develop in 21st century leaders. Using a range of academic
    sources (in the region of 10-12) construct a rationale that determines
    the purpose and value of these skills / behaviours in today’s business
    • Avoid overusing any one source to construct this rationale (as it
    potentially undermines the value proposition of your ideas).
    • The probable ballpark word count for this element is 1,000 to 1,100
    Sensitivity: Internal
    Structuring the Work
    • Element 2 is presented in table format (probable ballpark word count is
    400-500 words).
    • It outlines the implementation methods and the mechanisms by which
    you will determine the relative value and success of the plan.
    • The implementation methods should address how you plan to implement
    these ideas with an indication of who they are targeted at, whether this
    is a staged plan (activity 1, activity 2 etc) and when they can occur
    (there may be necessary time intervals in the plan to ensure work based
    learning is captured, which may be part of your evaluation process).
    • The evaluation measures is likely to be multiple (meaning there will be
    more than one measure for each skill or behaviour being developed).
    Sensitivity: Internal
    Presenting Your Work
    • A professional presentation is required. Remember, you are presenting
    to an audience, not to yourself. What you present and how you present
    it is often considered to be an indication of you, so be professional.
    • Use size 12 font (Arial, Verdana, MS Sans Serif tend to be good choices
    as they are relatively easy to read).
    • Use line and half (1.5) spacing. Do not cram things in on top of each
    other. A cluttered and ill-considered presentation does not make good
    or easy reading so help the reader.
    • Build good, well informed (from appropriate and robust academic
    research) points of discussion. Show the reader you have an
    understanding of the subject and not just some vague acknowledgement
    of it.
