PSY 614: Final Project Guidelines and Grading Guide
Overview
The final project for this course is a leadership case study analysis. You will be given a specific case study that centers on leadership strategies to form the
foundation of your analysis. Using this case study, you must apply the theories and concepts from the course to interpret and formulate answers to certain
guiding questions. Finally, you must create a professional presentation that presents your entire case study analysis effectively. In the presentation, you will
present your findings and recommendations, including answers to all guiding questions, as a consultant would present his or her analysis to a company. The
project is divided into three milestones, which will be submitted at various points throughout the course to scaffold learning and ensure quality final
submissions. These milestones will be submitted in Modules Four, Six, and Eight. The final product will be submitted in Module Ten.
This assessment will assess your mastery with respect to the following course outcomes:
?

Evaluate leadership strategies for the extent to which they reflect flexibility, promote sustainability, foster effective change management, and further
organizational goals for a given context
Select appropriate, innovative leadership strategies for solving authentic problem scenarios
Assess the effectiveness of and recommend modifications to leadership techniques based on employee research and performance metrics data

Specifically, the following critical elements must be addressed:
1. Leadership Strategies: Evaluation – Using the case study, describe the overall leadership strategies employed. Specifically address the following:
a. Flexibility – To what extent does the leadership strategy of the company within the case study reflect flexibility? What evidence is given for the
basis of your reasoning?
b. Sustainability – Does the leadership strategy promote sustainability? Why?
c. Change management – Does the leadership strategy foster effective change management? Why or why not?
d. Organizational goals – Does the leadership strategy further organizational goals? Give examples.
2. Leadership Strategies: Selection – Within the case, what are the leadership problems? Select appropriate leadership styles, approaches, and strategies
for solving the problem(s) based on the following:
a. Appropriateness – Which leadership strategies are appropriate for use in solving the problems identified within the case study? Discuss their
appropriateness in terms of style, approach, and strategy.
b. Innovation – Are the leadership strategies innovative? Why or why not?
3. Assessment Plan – Develop an assessment plan based on leadership strategies that have previously been employed and any recommended changes to
be employed. This assessment plan should include the following:
a. Effectiveness – Assess the effectiveness of the current leadership strategies based on the following:
i.

Principles of an Effective Presentation:
? You may utilize a product such as Microsoft’s PowerPoint, Adobe Captivate, Prezi, or Google Presentation to create your presentation.
? There are various template designs that you can find on the web for your presentation. However, first consider your presentation from the perspective of
your audience prior to selecting a specific style. Distracting backgrounds, large blocks of text, all-uppercase fonts, elaborate font styles, grammatical
errors, and misspellings are distracting. Be consistent with the style of text, bullets, and sub-points in order to support a powerful presentation that
allows your content to be the focus.
? Each slide should include your key point(s). Do not place large blocks of text on the visual. Your presentation is not a means of presenting a short paper.
In an actual presentation you would not “read” from your slides but rather use them as prompts.
? Any notes or narration you would use in delivering this presentation to a group should be listed in the “notes” section of the slide.
? References should be listed at the bottom of the slide in slightly smaller text.
? Use clip art, AutoShapes, pictures, charts, tables, and diagrams to enhance but not overwhelm your content.
? Be mindful of the intended audience and seek to assess the presentation’s effectiveness by gauging audience comprehension (when possible)
Types of Presentation Media: Text, charts/graphs, photos, clipart, video, audio, links, word clouds, infographics, flowcharts, interactive components, animation,
maps, transitions, graphic organizer, screenshots, storyboards, illustrations

Final Project Case Study: Fortuga Artisans, Inc.
Fortuga Artisans, Inc. has been a successful home decor manufacturing company for more than 30 years.
Founded as a small operation in 1981 by Peter Fortuga in Charleston, South Carolina, the company has
expanded to include international operations, and now employs more than 600 people in three factories (two
in the United States and one in Madrid, Spain). Its corporate office remains in the original location in
Charleston and employs another 47 full- and part-time employees. In 2011, Peter Fortuga announced his
retirement, and the Board of Directors began a search for his replacement. With Peter’s support, along with
strong encouragement from the local community, they hired a prominent interior designer, Doug Jeffers, as
CEO. His charismatic personality, work ethic, and attention to detail had earned him tremendous acclaim in
the Charleston area; as a result, he was very well-connected in the industry. At only 36 years old, Doug
served on the boards of several local non-profit organizations dedicated to the arts and was known for his
innovative ideas as well as his philanthropic prowess. Single, ambitious, and driven, Doug Jeffers was
considered the complete package – poised to take Fortuga Artisans, Inc. to the next level of success.
However, within two years, Doug’s executive assistant resigned, citing her dissatisfaction with his leadership
of the company. When Doug received Maryann Bishop’s resignation, he was shocked – he’d thought she was a
permanent fixture at Fortuga. She had been with the company for more than five years and he depended on
her. Everyone knew and liked Maryann, and Maryann knew everything about the company. When he called
her in to discuss her resignation, he asked why she had not discussed her dissatisfaction with him before.
Maryann reminded him of all the times she’d tried to do that, and he had simply brushed her off. She said
that he took her for granted. For that matter, she felt he took many people for granted. Maryann noted the
increase in employee turnover that their Vice President of Finance, Sarah Harris, had mentioned in last
month’s staff meeting. She also noted the recent concern voiced by Mike Andrews, VP of Artist Relations, over
the decline in new artists being signed to the company. She informed Doug that Fortuga’s artists did not like
him – several were not planning to renew their contracts at their next renewal date. Also, she noted that
employees did not trust him or his ability to lead the company. His treatment of both contracted artisans and
staff employees was degrading. He talked down to them, did not welcome or consider their…
