-The following is the fact pattern and assignment for your final paper. Remember, the paper is to be no more than 10 pages long, so your analysis should be concise and to the point. The final paper should be e-mailed to me, Tuesdsay, May 3, 2022….Late papers will not be accepted and will result in a grade of zero for this assignment.
The fact pattern and instructions for this assignment are as follows:
You are the newly elected Mayor of a city that has very serious problems. The prior administration created significant instability in the operation and serious financial problems, due to a lack of leadership, and an inability to understand of the operation, the community and the politics of running a public organization. As a result, they overspent the budget by millions of dollars, resulting in the city being on the verge of bankruptcy. They also created a situation where providing safety and services has become very inefficient and costly.
The community has lost faith in the city and its leadership, People have become worried about their taxes being increased to intolerable levels to support an inefficient organization, as well as expecting cuts to services and safety that could result in their basic needs not being met.
You also have a problem with your employees at City Hall. They have watched this decline and are frustrated that all their hard work has been undone and they have been treated badly by the previous administration.
The media is working against you, because they supported the prior administration and will not admit that the prior administration created all of these problems. They want to see you fail and are telling the community that the problems are not as bad as you are saying and are criticizing all of your assessments.
Finally, the State of Pennsylvania has been monitoring the situation and are threatening to come in and take over the operation if you don’t get the situation under control. You know this is a bad situation because they don’t understand your community and their methods have caused more harm than good, in other places.
Your job is to find a way to fix these problems in an efficient and effective way, so that all of these problems get solved. No one has done this in other communities, when faced with similar problems, so there are no examples for you to follow.
I want you to create your solutions using the methodology and transformational leadership principles we have studied throughout the semester.
I want you to identify your issues, prioritize these issues, analyze the problems and how to address them, formulate potential solutions, develop a plan for implementation and an order of priority for implementation. When put all together, this will be you plan for recovery.
Remember, your analysis should be brief and concise, since you only have 10 pages for the whole assignment. I am looking for your ability to analyze a multifaceted situation and determine solutions to each issue. You should be able to do this in 10 pages if you stick to the issues.
This is what we have been doing in our practical exercises, so you all know how to do this. Enjoy the process and developing the solutions!
