What does it take to be a Great Leader?
Throughout this course, you will be creating a personalized leadership handbook that can be used for years to come. We will research and apply management techniques in each class assignment, and at the end of eight weeks, you will have a blueprint for your success as a manager.
Let us look at four essential management concepts: planning, organizing, leading, and controlling. Using the class text and, predominately, articles from Trident Library’s full-text databases (like Academic Search Complete, Business Source Complete, and/or ProQuest Central), research each of the essential management functions. Do not use any quotations. Consider best practices from a management perspective. Talking points are included for each of the functions.
Since you are engaging in research, be sure to cite and reference the sources in APA format. The paper should be written in third person; this means words like “I,” “we,” and “you” are not appropriate. For more information see Differences Between First and Third Person.
Use the attached APA-formatted template (MGT301 Case1) to create your submission.
Your submission will include:
At Trident University International, rubrics are used for grading. These rubrics specify the points available for each component of an assignment. Points are earned based on the level of the work submitted. The rubric located in the case dropbox is used for this case.
Case reports are to be prepared in Microsoft Word and should be 3-4 pages in length, in addition to a cover page (course name and number, module number, session name, student name, and date prepared) and reference list – double-spaced, 12 pt. type, Times New Roman font.
Report content should include a brief introduction to the assignment, background information about the organization being studied, and some preliminary discussion of the concepts or theories being applied in addressing the questions or tasks proposed in the assignment. Use subtitles, bullets, and tables to improve presentation values. Attention is to be given to citing sources of information in-text (within the body of the paper) as well as in the end references section of your paper. In-text citation and end reference formatting instructions are available at https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/560/10/. Submit your report in the Case Dropbox for this module on or before the date due, as indicated at the TLC Homepage.
All case papers in this class will be evaluated using the criteria as stated in the Case rubric. The following is a review of the rubric criteria:
