Due Week 5: Part D: Leadership and Organizational Structure

Part I: Begin your paper by presenting an overview of current research and scholarly views on this topic.

The first section of your submission should not mention your chosen company. In the second part of this assignment you will articulate current practices of your chosen company, and compare them to your research findings.

Part II: Second, conduct and present research that evaluates the leadership style fostered in this organization. Provide examples of both its effectiveness and ineffectiveness. Describe how leaders are (or are not) nurtured and developed. Analyze how the organizational structure/span of control impacts leadership style and effectiveness.
