Analyzing Leadership Decisions
The Portfolio Project is a thoughtful analysis of an ineffective or poor leadership decision. You may use a well-known leadership decision, such as the 2011 decision to split Netflix, which resulted in serious financial losses for the organization. Your project must include the following:
Research a leadership decision that was ineffective or did not have the desired results.
Describe the problem that may have precipitated the decision, as well as the apparent processes used by the leaders involved in the decision-making effort.
Critique the processes they implemented, applying what you learned from this course.
Recommend a different approach that could have been taken, using theories and methodologies from this course.
Present a strong case for how your recommendations could have altered the decision made, leading to more effective results for the organization.
Write a paper 10-12 pages in length. Cite a minimum of eight scholarly sources to support your positions, claims, and observations, in addition to the textbook, six of which should be academic, peer-reviewed sources. Format your project according to the APA writing format.
