Context:
In this assessment, students are required to analyse a case study that describes an organisation
launching projects. In later modules, students work in groups to analyse the actual project. In
this assessment, they analyse the leadership styles/approaches they believe to be appropriate for
project leadership in this environment
Identifying and analysing leadership styles helps students to prepare for the management of the
efforts of individuals who contribute to a project. This also introduces the concepts of power,
and how the appropriate use of power can influence these efforts.
