Formative Assignment – Good Practice
• Good grasp of what went wrong and why in both cases
• Positive and negative assigned to both e.g. “but there was
more negative”
• Insightful thoughts on power dynamics, situational
leadership internal controls & committee structures
• Useful leadership theories mentioned with evidence of
broader reading
• Clever use of pictures to save words and break up text
• Structure, flow use of academic language – excellent

Formative Assignment – Improvement Areas
• Sometimes too descriptive – limit facts in favour of
application and analysis, especially regarding theory
• Compare and contrast both cases – similarities between
them? Different causes and effects?
• Include more about stakeholders and regulators, possibly
also public vs private sector
• Explore more why governance issues arose and what could
be done to improve
• Plagiarism and referencing

• What have you found particularly useful?
2. How might you develop you approach to leadership as a result
of these reflections?
• Where do you see these concepts reflected in your own leadership practice?
• Do you have strengths/weaknesses in these areas?
• things that you can do over the next week or two to improve your practice?
What concrete
