This assessment will be broken up into five questions. The five questions are designed to test your comprehension of the course materials in relation to real-world cases, and your capacity to see how different course topics overlap with each other and provide you with tools for understanding organisational and leadership problems and solutions.
Essential preparation for this task requires you to carefully read/watch:
Watch the video titled ‘Amazon Empire: The Rise and Reign of Jeff Bezos’ (available in the Assessment task 2 section of the course Canvas) and read the following article:
Bezos, J 2020, ‘How Amazon Thinks About Competition’, Harvard Business Review Digital Articles, pp. 2–4, viewed 12 March 2021 via: http://search.ebscohost.com.ezproxy.lib.rmit.edu.au/login.aspx?direct=true&db=bth&AN=147821836&sit e=ehost-live.
Here are the five questions:
1.Apply the concept of ‘triad of awareness’ to the case of Jeff Bezos’ leadership of Amazon and identify if he needs to pay more attention to any one the focused areas.
2.Discuss the importance of paradoxical thinking and examine the paradoxes that a leader like Bezos may need to address recurrently.
3.Describe the ways in which the theory of the business can be used to explain how Bezos’ is leading Amazon.
4.Discuss whether Bezos’ style of leadership aligns with two of the secrets of the super bosses as described by Finkelstein. Defend your answer.
5.In the context of ‘the five exemplary leadership practices’ covered in the course, identify two business areas/examples where you think Bezos fell short of exhibiting the exemplary leadership practices. Reflect on how he could have exemplified the practices more successfully.
Note specially: Your assignment must include the reading materials and journal articles studied in this course. That is, at least 50% of the referencing must be based on the course learning resources provided on Canvas. You can draw on key media pieces (e.g. article, interview, podcast, book etc.) about Jeff Bezos to strengthen your answers and analysis.T
