Critically analyse particular leadership problems and challenges through critical evaluation and appropriate application of theory

1.    Critically evaluate how certain types of leadership/management styles differ depending on history, culture, geographic life and conditions

2.    Critically evaluate how certain types of leadership/management styles impact people performance, productivity

3.    Critically evaluate how certain types of leadership/management styles determine who will ‘follow and how’.

4.    Critically evaluate your personal leadership capabilities and critically analyse the need for future development

Through application of Seven Leadership Mindsets Theory (vMEME) you will have a tool (and the skill) to critically assess and evaluate all types of organisational and sector theories worldviews that include USA, UK, China, European countries, India, Oman, GCC, African countries, etc. Leadership is different depending on the relevant mindset (life conditions, how humans individuals adapt to successfully compete and socio-cultural elements). Inevitably leadership mindset impacts everything in a company – strategy, people, performance, productivity, etc.

 

A suggested structure for the written report would include the following: This assignment can be divided into four sections.

 

1. From a consideration of the theory, research, science, and characteristics of organisations identify and assess:

  1. The seven structures and systems present in your organisation
  2. Analyse and describe how the present Leadership Value Systems and Structures in your organisation impact on leadership, management and staff.
  3. Consider and analyse differences to your competitors (local or global)
  4. Consider to what extent are these differences positive points of differentiation or negative traits of the organisation

2. Now that you understand your organisations’ structure consider your organisations’ sector. Critically analyse:

a.    How has your sector evolved?

b.    In what way do they differ to your competitors (local or global)

c.     To what extent are these differences positive points of differentiation or negative traits of the organisation

 

3. Having examined change and transformation critically assess an analyse how to ensure your organisation’s continued growth and success, organisations need to undertake transformation and growth.

 

a.    What kinds of changes are taking place in your sector and what do you believe the most successful organisations are doing to embrace the changes required to deliver continued success?

b.    To what extent is your organisation at the forefront of this transformation (or maybe it is trailing some of the best organisations in the sector). Give examples of specific actions and leadership behaviours you are seeing to underpin your view.

4. Every organisation faces challenges and problems, which can be driven from rapid growth or serious decline. Identify and critically assess:

  1. The top two or three big issues your organisation is facing
  2. Key actions your organisation needs to take to put it on a path of future sustainable success.

ANSWER

 Critical Assessment and Evaluation of Organizational Systems and Leadership Styles

Introduction

In this report, we will critically assess and evaluate an organization and its sector using organizational systems and structures theory, specifically the vMEME theory of leadership. The report will address leadership problems and challenges by applying relevant theories and models. The focus will be on analyzing how leadership styles differ based on history, culture, and geographic conditions, their impact on people performance and productivity, and how they determine followership. Additionally, personal leadership capabilities will be evaluated, and the need for future development will be analyzed. The report will be structured into four sections, each addressing specific aspects of the assessment and evaluation process.

Section 1: Organizational Systems and Structures

Seven Structures and Systems

The first step is to identify and assess the seven structures and systems present in the organization. These may include hierarchical structures, matrix structures, team-based structures, etc. Each structure’s characteristics and their implications for leadership, management, and staff will be analyzed and described (JOSSO 2 by Atricore, n.d.-b).

Leadership Value Systems and Structures

This section will critically analyze how the present leadership value systems and structures in the organization impact leadership, management, and staff. It will explore the alignment between leadership styles and organizational culture, values, and goals. The positive differentiating aspects and negative traits resulting from these systems will be assessed.

Differences from Competitors

A comparative analysis will be conducted to identify and analyze the differences between the organization and its competitors, both locally and globally. The examination will focus on leadership and management styles, organizational structures, and strategic approaches. The report will evaluate whether these differences represent positive points of differentiation or negative traits for the organization.

Section 2: Evolution and Comparison within the Sector

Sector Evolution:

This section will critically analyze the evolution of the organization’s sector. It will explore how the sector has changed over time in terms of technological advancements, market dynamics, regulatory frameworks, and customer expectations. The impact of these changes on leadership and management styles within the sector will be examined.

Differences from Competitors:

A comparative analysis will be conducted to identify and analyze the differences between the organization’s sector and its competitors, both locally and globally. The report will evaluate the leadership and management styles adopted by competitors and how they differ from the organization. It will assess whether these differences represent positive points of differentiation or negative traits for the sector and the organization (Porter, 2014).

Section 3: Change, Transformation, and Growth

Changes in the Sector

This section will critically assess the changes taking place in the organization’s sector. It will examine emerging trends, disruptive technologies, market shifts, and changing customer preferences. The report will identify the most successful organizations within the sector and evaluate the strategies they have employed to embrace these changes and ensure continued success.

Organization’s Position

The report will assess the organization’s position in terms of embracing the necessary changes and transformation within the sector. It will highlight specific actions and leadership behaviors observed within the organization that either position it at the forefront of transformation or indicate a trailing position. Examples will be provided to support the analysis.

Section 4: Challenges and Future Sustainable Success

Top Organizational Issues:

The report will identify and critically assess the top two or three significant issues faced by the organization. These challenges may arise from rapid growth or serious decline and can impact the organization’s sustainability. Each issue will be analyzed to understand its root causes and potential implications for the organization.

Key Actions for Sustainable Success:

This section will propose key actions that the organization needs to take to address the identified issues and ensure future sustainable success (How Can Occupational Safety and Health Be Managed? (Labour Administration and Inspection), n.d.). The actions will be based on the critical assessment and analysis conducted throughout the report, taking into account leadership capabilities, organizational structures, and sector dynamics.

Conclusion

In conclusion, this report has critically assessed and evaluated an organization and its sector using organizational systems and structures theory. It has addressed leadership problems and challenges through the application of relevant theories and models. The report has analyzed how leadership styles differ based on history, culture, and geographic conditions, their impact on people performance and productivity, and how they determine followership. Additionally, personal leadership capabilities have been evaluated, and the need for future development has been analyzed. The findings of this report provide insights into the organization’s strengths, weaknesses, and opportunities for improvement, thereby facilitating strategic decision-making and fostering future sustainable success.
