DDBA 8151 Week 7 Leading a Virtual Organization: Critical Decisions

( 2 Pages with References )

To prepare for this Discussion, review the “Leading a Virtual Organization” videos and Case Study Guide and consider the case of business executive Dr. Craig Marsh. Consider how Dr. Marsh built within his organization a culture of employee engagement, one that is conducive to optimal performance management, and a leadership structure appropriate to achieve his goals. Further, consider how Dr. Marsh took into account the perspectives of researchers and practitioners before creating his strategy.


By Day 3


Post your analysis of the case study, specifically the factors related to effective leadership within a global, virtual organization. In your analysis, be sure to address the following questions:

·         What aspects of the academic and practitioner literature did you find particularly applicable to Dr. Marsh’s scenario?

·         Whose seminal work would you adopt to help you form your strategy to change the organizational culture of this virtual organization?

·         If you were in Dr. Marsh’s position, what is one additional strategy you might have employed to more effectively lead or develop this virtual, globally dispersed team? Provide a rationale for your selected strategy.

Be sure to support your work with a minimum of two specific citations from this week’s Learning Resources and one or more additional scholarly sources.
