Formative assignment: Structured essay plan
Organisational Behaviour (OB), BUSI4V815: 2020-21
Your task for the OB formative assignment is to prepare a structured essay plan.
The formative assignment is your opportunity to receive feedback from the OB Module Team in preparation for your summative assignment. The mark will not count toward your degree. It is for developmental purposes only.
Use this document as a template, delete the instructions, and simply insert your answers to the questions below. The submission should be no longer than 2 pages plus references.
To complete your formative assignment, address the three questions below.
Question 1: Which leader have you selected for your case analysis? We recommend that you provide your preferred leader (Option A) and a back-up leader (Option B) in case the preferred one is not viable. Explain why you think these individuals (Options A and B) are good choices for the case analysis, especially from a perspective of ethics and responsibility.
Question 2: Using your Option A, how does this leader impact others from a perspective of ethics and responsibility (e.g., diversity, health/stress, motivation, organisational culture)? Use at least one empirical study from the field of OB to explain your answer.
Question 3: Using your Option A, which materials (e.g., interviews, reports, websites) do you plan to use to support your case study analysis? Provide one specific quote from the materials and demonstrate how it links with what you have learned in OB so far.
Provide at least 5 references to articles from high-quality scientific journals of OB that you plan to use for the case analysis. Format the references in APA or Harvard style.
