MGMT591 Leadership and Organizational Behavior

Week 2 Assignment  

Harvard Business Publishing – Organizational Behavior Simulation: Judgment in a Crisis

This is the week you will complete a scenario in the Harvard Business Publishing – Organizational Behavior Simulation: Judgment in a Crisis

You will need to log into the Harvard Business Publishing – Organizational Behavior Simulation: Judgement in Crisis simulation environment and review the instructions on how to participate.

Students play the role of a product manager at Matterhorn Health, a medical device manufacturer. The company recently launched the GlucoGauge blood glucose monitor, the company’s most expensive product development effort to date. In spite of vigorous pre-release testing, there are problems reported by customers almost immediately after launch. Throughout the simulation, students will use a series of desktop applications to receive communications from their colleagues about the problem at hand. They will receive a barrage of information through various channels – email, video messages, voicemail messages, and instant message chats – requesting that they determine the root cause of the issue and make recommendations on how Matterhorn can get ahead of this problem.

Although there is no wrong way to complete the simulation, be sure to follow all of the instructions.

Once you completed the simulation, please answer the following questions in a word document and submit your document for grading:

What are the decisions you made?

Why did you make each of your decisions?

What have you learned from this simulation?

Completed Simulation with Press Release: 50 Points.

Questions Rubric – 25 points. The total assignment is 75 points.

Week 2 Course Project  

Objective

Research shows that people learn effectively when working on real problems grounded in their work experience. To this end, the Individual Course Project is designed to incorporate students’ work experience into the learning process in this course.

The project is an opportunity to explore, in-depth, a topic related to the course objectives (COs) that are of significance to your organization (current or former).

You will be required to prepare 7 to 8 pages applied research paper excluding the cover page, table of contents, and appendices, on a specific issue related to leadership or organizational behavior. This research paper is to be individually completed.

Guidelines

Topic Selection (Due in Week 2)

Select a specific organization of interest to you and identify a problem at the firm related to organizational behavior (OB). This maybe an organization where you currently serve or one where you have served.

Think of yourself as an organizational consultant. Assume that a key manager has requested a thorough analysis and recommended course of action to resolve an actual organizational problem. Your goal is to develop recommendations that will make a positive difference to the performance of the organization.

Your research paper should address the following three-course objectives, at a minimum:

Course Objective A – Evaluate how organizational theories and practices can improve organizational operations.

Course Objective B – Analyze how values, attitudes, beliefs, feelings, and personality influence decision-making in the workplace.

APA Format & PaperCourse Project Papers (Due in Weeks 5, 6, and 8)Course Project Rubric

Framework papers are research papers that are typically used as a basis for additional exploration of specific topics in a larger study. A framework paper introduces and further explains a specific aspect of the study while also furthering an explanation of the main research question. During week’s 4, 5 and 6, you will be assigned specific topics to continue your research and to further explore. Your individual weekly papers should demonstrate an understanding of the background theories and concepts from within our course that is relevant to your topic.

How to get started? Research your topic – Research it a great deal using the DeVry Library and/or any other academic library. Further, review all of the course material as well as the relevant research (typically journal articles) that help explore and study the organizational research problem you are studying.

What is the overall purpose of a framework paper? Essentially, the purpose of a framework paper should be to explain the meaning and the challenges of the organizational problem as well as continue building on the body of knowledge as the beginning of plausible (and possible) solutions to ultimately help benefit the organization being studied.

Steps to consider when drafting your Framework Paper:

Review your (preliminary) research paper title and your research question.

Review all research articles and information that you have found, so far.

Review the course information paying particular attention to the relevant theories that address the week’s topic/question.

Discuss and present the assumptions that relate to the theory or theories.

Include the relevance to your research and topic. Be sure to explain why and how this is important to consider and discuss.

For each weekly Framework Paper, include the following sections.

Introduction

Preliminary statement of the problem

A detailed explanation of how this helps answer the stated research question

Discuss and present the assumptions that relate to the theory or theories.

Include the relevance to your research and topic. Be sure to explain why and how this is important to consider and discuss.

What additional research is suggested by this information? Which solutions are suggested? Why? Do they appear valid? Relevant? How can you tell?
