General Information

Overview

Organisations are social entities and as such require the coordination and alignment of activities undertaken by people to achieve organisational goals. Management is defined as working with and through others whilst leadership is defined as the ability to influence others in a goal directed path. In this unit you will develop an understanding of the differences between management and leadership. You will address specific aspects of different management and leadership styles, including delegation and performance management, their appropriateness and impact given people and cultural context. You will critically examine the individual attributes such as values, personality, motivation and the use of power and how they affect individual and team performance. You will also gain an appreciation of the key role played by organisational leaders in the implementation and alignment of the United Nation's Sustainable Development Goals and how organisations and businesses can become institutions of positive social change as well as meeting the needs of shareholders and/ or stakeholders.

Assessment Criteria

As a Masters-level student, you are required to engage in research as per the Australia Quality Framework (AQF) guidelines. Two specific requirements need to be considered. Students need to demonstrate “a body of knowledge that includes the understanding of recent developments in a discipline and/or area of professional practice", and demonstrate "knowledge of research principles and methods applicable to a field of work and/or learning”. Each unit in your Masters program has a number of required weekly readings in terms of academic texts, journals and business publications that represent the appropriate body of knowledge and recent developments referred to by the AQF. In order to demonstrate the ability to engage in appropriate research, students should read and utilise these texts and journals and publications, and as a Masters student, demonstrate an ability to research beyond this minimum standard through additional texts, journals and studies that demonstrate an ability to engage in independent research. This is an advanced level unit, and accrediting bodies are also looking for evidence of independent research, so the ability to conduct this project without continually relying on your tutors and lecturers is an important part of the learning process for this unit.

You should ensure that you understand the specific research that is required for each assessment piece and recognise that if you merely meet this minimum requirement, you will receive the minimum grade for demonstrated research. Your attention is drawn to the University’s stated position on plagiarism. THE WORK OF OTHERS, WHICH IS INCLUDED IN THE ASSIGNMENT MUST BE ATTRIBUTED TO ITS SOURCE. A full list of references must be submitted as part of the assessment. Your assignment will be marked on the following criteria; detailed marking rubrics are available in Moodle:

  1. Clear definition and overview of management and leadership (10%)
  2. A concise summary of the key theories and concepts related to management, leadership, and self-awareness (20%)
  3. The use of a minimum of three diagnostic tools (at least one related to management and at least one related to leadership) (30%)
  4. A concise reflection on the results of the tools and how these enhance greater awareness of individual management and leadership practice (20%)
  5. Breadth and quality of research, using a minimum of 12 academic sources (10%)
  6. Correctly using the APA referencing system to cite an academic source (in-text and in the reference list) (10%)

Late submission and academic misconduct penalties will be applied in accordance with the university policies.

2 Presentation

Assessment Title
Assessment 2: Leadership and Management in Practice

Task Description

Students are to prepare a presentation addressing specific aspect of leadership practice. Students will be allocated to groups by Week 6 of term. The size and composition of groups will be determined by the class facilitator and will normally not be negotiable.
Each group will select two prominent leaders or managers, of which one must be a business leader. The specific task is to analyse the behaviour of each, citing examples to illustrate and then contrast these against management and leadership models and theories to determine the extent of effective or ineffective practice. Students are expected to refer not only to leadership and management theories, but also specific concepts studied throughout the term including ethics, motivation, delegation, power and influence, etc., and how these leaders and managers use these aspects as part of their practice, and assess the impact on followers.

This is a pass-fail activity and students must be in a group; students cannot undertake this task individually.

Students are to prepare a presentation addressing a specific aspect of leadership practice. Students must upload their presentation, which consists of the PowerPoint slides, an executive summary of approximately 1,200-1,500 words, and a reference list, to the Moodle site by the due date.

Presentation: 15 - 20 minutes per group.
Written Summary: 1,200-1,500 words (maximum).

Each group member is required to contribute equally to both the development and delivery of the Presentation and Written Summary. The submission of a 'Statement of Contribution' (see Moodle), recording the input of each individual member to the development of the Presentation and Written Summary, must be attached to the Written Summary submission.

Academic Integrity Statement

As a CQUniversity student you are expected to act honestly in all aspects of your academic work.

Any assessable work undertaken or submitted for review or assessment must be your own work. Assessable work is any type of work you do to meet the assessment requirements in the unit, including draft work submitted for review and feedback and final work to be assessed.

When you use the ideas, words or data of others in your assessment, you must thoroughly and clearly acknowledge the source of this information by using the correct referencing style for your unit. Using others’ work without proper acknowledgement may be considered a form of intellectual dishonesty.

Participating honestly, respectfully, responsibly, and fairly in your university study ensures the CQUniversity qualification you earn will be valued as a true indication of your individual academic achievement and will continue to receive the respect and recognition it deserves.

As a student, you are responsible for reading and following CQUniversity’s policies, including the Student Academic Integrity Policy and Procedure. This policy sets out CQUniversity’s expectations of you to act with integrity, examples of academic integrity breaches to avoid, the processes used to address alleged breaches of academic integrity, and potential penalties.

What is a breach of academic integrity?

A breach of academic integrity includes but is not limited to plagiarism, self-plagiarism, collusion, cheating, contract cheating, and academic misconduct. The Student Academic Integrity Policy and Procedure defines what these terms mean and gives examples.

Why is academic integrity important?

A breach of academic integrity may result in one or more penalties, including suspension or even expulsion from the University. It can also have negative implications for student visas and future enrolment at CQUniversity or elsewhere. Students who engage in contract cheating also risk being blackmailed by contract cheating services.

Where can I get assistance?

For academic advice and guidance, the Academic Learning Centre (ALC) can support you in becoming confident in completing assessments with integrity and of high standard.
