PSY 614: Final Project Guidelines and Grading Guide

Overview The final project for this course is a leadership case study analysis. You will be given a specific case study that centers on leadership strategies to form the foundation of your analysis. Using this case study, you must apply the theories and concepts from the course to interpret and formulate answers to certain guiding questions. Finally, you must create a professional presentation that presents your entire case study analysis effectively. In the presentation, you will present your findings and recommendations, including answers to all guiding questions, as a consultant would present his or her analysis to a company. The project is divided into three milestones, which will be submitted at various points throughout the course to scaffold learning and ensure quality final submissions. These milestones will be submitted in Modules Four, Six, and Eight. The final product will be submitted in Module Ten. This assessment will assess your mastery with respect to the following course outcomes:

 Evaluate leadership strategies for the extent to which they reflect flexibility, promote sustainability, foster effective cha nge management, and further organizational goals for a given context

 Select appropriate, innovative leadership strategies for solving authentic problem scenarios

 Assess the effectiveness of and recommend modifications to leadership techniques based on employee resear ch and performance metrics data

Prompt Use the case study Fortuga Artisans, Inc. for the following prompt.

For your leadership case study analysis, you must create a professional presentation and apply the theories and concepts from the course to interpret and formulate answers to the following guiding questions:

 

 What are the problems and issues discussed in the case study? Illustrate each with specific examples and connect them back to course principles.

 How did or how should the organization employ leadership strategies that reflect flexibility, promote sustainability, foster effective change management, and further organizational goals? Defend your evaluation and choices.

 What is your assessment plan? Describe your plan based on the leadership strategies that have been employed as well as any additional strategies you recommend to be employed. Include a plan for assessment that incorporates employee feedback and performance metrics data. What should be measured? How should it be measured to ensure validity and reliability? How should that data be interpreted and acted upon?

 

 

 

Specifically, the following critical elements must be addressed:

1. Leadership Strategies: Evaluation – Using the case study, describe the overall leadership strategies employed. Specifically address the following: a. Flexibility – To what extent does the leadership strategy of the company within the case study reflect flexibility? What evidence is given for the

basis of your reasoning? b. Sustainability – Does the leadership strategy promote sustainability? Why? c. Change management – Does the leadership strategy foster effective change management? Why or why not? d. Organizational goals – Does the leadership strategy further organizational goals? Give examples.

2. Leadership Strategies: Selection – Within the case, what are the leadership problems? Select appropriate leadership styles, approaches, and strategies for solving the problem(s) based on the following:

a. Appropriateness – Which leadership strategies are appropriate for use in solving the problems identifi ed within the case study? Discuss their appropriateness in terms of style, approach, and strategy.

b. Innovation – Are the leadership strategies innovative? Why or why not? 3. Assessment Plan – Develop an assessment plan based on leadership strategies that have previously been employed and any recommended changes to

be employed. This assessment plan should include the following: a. Effectiveness – Assess the effectiveness of the current leadership strategies based on the following:

i. Employee research ii. Performance metric data

b. Recommendations – Propose an assessment plan that incorporates employee feedback and performance metrics data, addresses the data to be collected, discusses how to ensure validity and reliability, and incorporates interpretation and fu ture actions.

Note: Principles of an effective presentation can be found at the end of this document.

Principles of an Effective Presentation:

 You may utilize a product such as Microsoft’s PowerPoint, Adobe Captivate, Prezi, or Google Presentation to create your presentation.

 There are various template designs that you can find on the web for your presentation. However, first consider your presentation from the perspective of your audience prior to selecting a specific style. Distracting backgrounds, large blocks of text, all -uppercase fonts, elaborate font styles, grammatical errors, and misspellings are distracting. Be consistent with the style of text, bullets, and sub-points in order to support a powerful presentation that allows your content to be the focus.

 Each slide should include your key point(s). Do not place large blocks of text on the visual. Your presentation is not a means of presenting a short paper. In an actual presentation you would not “read” from your slides but rather use them as prompts.

 Any notes or narration you would use in delivering this presentation to a group should be listed in the “notes” section of the slide.

 References should be listed at the bottom of the slide in slightly smaller text.

 Use clip art, AutoShapes, pictures, charts, tables, and diagrams to enhance but not overwhelm your content.  Be mindful of the intended audience and seek to assess the presentation’s effectiveness by gauging audience comprehension (when possible)
