Critical Evaluation


This is had common factor from the previous one but it is little different Assignment 1 guidance Critical Evaluation: as I mentioned in the classroom session, the Critical Evaluation Evaluation is concerned with two models of leadership. You can choose any two valid models. The ones in the session would be suitable, ie. two of Situational, Transactional, Transformational, or two others from a text such as Northouse, eg. Servant, Follower etc. You should evaluate them, perhaps considering their relevance within the context of organisational activity, as distinct from their theoretical structure, ie. some models will work effectively in some situations but are of no relevance in others. It is also a good idea to include actual examples, eg. from your own workplace, or other real-world employment environments. Examples will demonstrate your understanding of the topic. Your evaluation should be critical through evaluation of the models in their theoretical construction, eg. do the factors included in the model represent all, or a significant proportion, of the components of organisational behaviour? Do they represent real world scenarios? What does the literature indicate about the relevance of their models in previous studies reported in journal articles for example? The word-count limit is 1500 words so there is not much scope for expansive arguments, just individual points as indicative of the value of the models. You might find value in tabulating these in order to save word-count and increase immediacy, ie. the examiners will identify the issues that you raise very clearly.
