Research shows that people learn effectively when working on real problems grounded in their work experience. To this end, the Individual Course Project is designed to incorporate students’ work experience into the learning process in this course.
The project is an opportunity to explore, in-depth, a topic related to the course objectives (COs) that are of significance to your organization (current or former).
You will be required to prepare an 8 to 12 page applied research paper excluding cover page, table of contents, and appendices, on a specific issue related to leadership or organizational behavior. This research paper is to be individually completed.
