Ase study for subject (Strategic Leadership in Criminal Justice 7038CCJ )

Assessment Item 2 requires students to conceptualise and articulate a leadership dilemma related to either (a) performance management systems or (b) strategic organisational change in a specific criminal justice setting. The student will develop and discuss the leadership dilemma in the context of a criminal justice setting (ie. police, corrections or courts) of their choice.
Students are expected to:
1. Develop and present a leadership dilemma, examples are provided below, that is relevant and realistic to the criminal justice setting chosen (students are advised to select a narrow and specific leadership dilemma); and,
2. apply one (1) leadership approach/theory (from those discussed in Weeks 7, 8 and 9) to the leadership dilemma.
As discussed in respect to Assessment Item 1, students are advised to select a narrow and specific leadership dilemma. The leadership dilemma should be substantively different from that developed in Assessment Item 1. The student must choose a different content area from that chosen in Assessment Item 1 (ie. if the student chose to focus on performance management systems in Assessment Item 1, the student must develop a case study in the area of strategic organisational change in Assessment Item 2, or vice versa).

(Criteria & Marking):

Section Section Description
1)Problem Description:
Provide a description of the leadership dilemma that will form the basis on which subsequent analysis will be conducted.
Identify the key issue/s that will need to be addressed by the leader in this situation.
Draw on criminal justice research that has examined performance management systems or strategic organisational change processes (whichever is relevant to your leadership dilemma) to guide your derivation of key issues that will need to be managed.
2)Theoretical analysis of the chosen leadership approach/ theory: Provide a theoretical overview of the leadership approach/theory being examined in the assessment item.
This should involve a a?generala discussion of the key elements of the theory and a review of relevant research.
3)Application of leadership approach/theory to leadership dilemma: This section should discuss how the leadership approach/theory would work in response to the problem that has been developed.
The analysis should focus on a description of the type of leadership, using the theory/approach chosen, that would be most effective in dealing with the leadership dilemma and the reasons for its effectiveness.
This discussion and analysis should be strongly supported by relevant research (particularly, research that has discussed and/or studied this leadership approach within a criminal justice setting).
4)References Appropriate use of APA style guidelines (ie. in-text referencing and reference list format).
5) Presentation Formatted appropriately; proof-read and attention to sentence structure and paragraph construction.
6)Word Length Assignment length is within +/10% of total word limit.

Example 2 a Strategic Organisational Change in Corrections.Kathy Simpson is the leader of a team of correctional officers at the Pokon Correctional Facility. As a result of wider, organisational re-structuring Kathy is leading project that involves reducing the number of personnel within her team. The change will result in her team reducing in size from 20 correctional officers down to 10 correctional officers. Kathy has been asked to make a recommendation to senior management as to which correctional officers she would like to keep within her team and for those not chosen, where the a?additionala officers should be deployed. Members of Kathyas team are becoming distressed by the uncertainty that the re-structure has created. Kathy has identified that there has been a sharp increase in the number of days of sick leave taken by her team members and more generally, work performance has been deteriorating. Kathy needs to take some action to alleviate the concerns of officers and to ensure that they maintain an acceptable level of work performance during this transition. Choose one leadership theory/approach and discuss the type of leadership profile that would best suit this leadership dilemma.
