Choose a real organisational case illustrating questionable organisational and management practices that have been critiqued in the public spaces. Examples include companies, such as BP, BHP, CommonWealth Bank, Toyota, WorldCom, VW; government agencies such as the Wheat Board, Wollongong Council; non-profits, e.g. Health Union, FIFA, Essendon Football Club. 1. Analyse the reasons for these questionable organisational and management practices including the judgements made by leaders/managers of these organisations via relevant organisation theories. How accountable do you see have managers and leaders of the chosen organisation been in their actions and decisions? You must draw from two different Organisation Theory lenses from the following list of Organisation Theory perspectives: Agency Theory Institutional theory Bureaucracy Control Stakeholder Theory Power and Politics Ethical & moral dimensions of Organisation Theories Approaches on employee co-ownership and commons Organisational culture Stewardship You must illustrate your deepening personal and critical awareness of management and organisational practices and how theoretical lenses in the literature can illuminate these practices 2. Based on your analysis, develop 2-3 high-level recommendations to the leaders/managers of the chosen organisation how to change these practices. These recommendations need to be written in a form that persuades for the need for changes. This section should be seen as part of a dialogue you are trying to open with the organisation and its leadership. Students are strongly advised to avoid simplistic recommendations and ‘quick fix’ solutions, as these are not realistic. You must draw from one Organisation Theory lens from the following list of Organisation Theory perspectives to develop and support your recommendation: Agency Theory Institutional theory Bureaucracy Control Stakeholder Theory Power and Politics Ethical & moral dimensions of Organisation Theories Approaches on employee co-ownership and commons Organisational culture Stewardship
