How leadership models and practices support innovation in the global context
In this course, you have explored three main concepts:
1.How leadership models and practices support innovation in the global context.
2.The behaviors of leaders that drive innovation and the creation of innovative organizations.
3.What innovative leaders do to shape organizational culture and processes.
The final project for this course challenges you to integrate these concepts while focusing on a particular organization.
•Dess, Lumpkin, Eisner, and McNamara’s 2012 “Strategic Management: Creating Competitive Advantages.”
•Leadership models readings.
•The Innovator’s DNA.
•Nayar’s 2010 article “A Maverick CEO Explains How He Persuaded His Team to Leap into the Future.”
•The Intuitive Surgical case study or the Proctor & Gamble case study (or both).
For this assignment, you will write a 5–6-page paper with a focus on either the Connect and Develop Model at P&G case study or the Intuitive Surgical: How Long Can Their Monopoly Last? case study. Choose one case and focus your efforts on that organization. Both Proctor & Gamble and Intuitive Surgical are also profiled in various discussions throughout The Innovator’s DNA. You may integrate that information, as well as any other research regarding innovation in these organizations, into your work too.
