This assignment is based on the readings of Week 1 and of this week, in which you explored various organizational, management, and leadership theories and models. Now, you will apply this knowledge as you select a particular theory appropriate to the resolution of the problem, issue, or conflict you identified in your Week 1 assignment.
Pick an organizational, leadership, or management theory or model and describe it in detail, including its history and development and possible applications.
Next, apply this theory or model to your problem, issue, or conflict. Describe how it fits your problem, issue, or conflict.
In addition, answer the following questions:
- How did this theory or model come into being?
- Who first used this theory or model and why?
- Is this theory or model considered useful today? Why or why not?
- What are the examples of its use today, if applicable?
- Why did you choose this theory or model?
- What are some specific applications of this theory or model to your problem, issue, or conflict?
Finally, this paper will be enhanced by your use of references from the course or those you find in the library. Examine your textbooks and the articles noted in the readings to see if any helpful information can be employed in this write-up, in the form of citations supporting your statements or insights related to the theory or model application. For example, your textbook Management of Organizational Behavior: Leading Human Resources has numerous chapters on organizational and management theories and models. Both textbooks, Management of Organizational Behavior: Leading Human Resources and Quantum Leadership: Advancing Innovation, Transforming Health Care, have numerous chapters that discuss leadership styles and models. Use your course readings and the library to make this a scholarly work.
