Your assignment must be completed as a 3,500 word Written
? Select a leader who has made a significant contribution to the
aviation or aerospace industries and analyse that leader’s
performance in accordance with the theories in the lectures over
the course up to week 10. Students not only must analyse that
leader’s performance but contrast it with comparable leaders in a
similar organisation of complexity to draw conclusions and key
lessons to be learned for application now or in the future.
? You can select a leader from any part of the history of aviation but
you must be wise in selecting a leader for which there is plenty of
quality research material in the public domain.
? You should describe the leader’s background and the leadership
performance with emphasis on a particular period where the
leader gained greatest prominence.
? You should select primary and secondary leaders in which you
have a great interest to help make this assignment not only
productive but also enjoyable. You must not select Sir Frank
Whittle as we shall use him as a case study in tutorials.
? Evaluate the performance in terms of criteria from the theory
learned in the course, and how the leadership and management
was demonstrated in terms of strengths, weaknesses, results and
key lessons to be learned within a recommendations section after
the conclusion.
