The video you will view (https://youtu.be/lbv5EM-PP6E) is an opening scene from the movie “Jerry Maguire.” In this scene, the character played by Tom Cruise is having doubts about the ethical issues in the sports representation business. In an impulsive moment, he decides to write a new mission statement for his company. In this document, Jerry Maguire argues that the priority of the company should be more on relationships with the athletes they represent, and less concern for the money and financial gains. When he enters the office the next day, his reception from fellow employees is applause, but he is soon fired by his supervisor for writing and distributing the new mission statement. How could he have used power and conflict resolution differently? In the attempt to exercise leadership, did he seem to experience strong feelings of vulnerability? Assignment: Write a 3-4 page case analysis in which you respond to the following questions. How did his attempt at leadership and creating the new mission statement create conflict with his supervisor? How was the “focus on people, less on money” priority not compatible with the values of the company and most of the sports representative who worked there? Discuss the following statement. Visions, missions, and strategies must align with the leadership and culture of an organization. If you were in Jerry Maguire’s position, how would you have attempted to create the changes he desired? How would you have managed the potential conflicts that could result from a new mission in the company? What is the analysis of power in this example? ………… Required Weekly Readings and Watchings Course Text: Assigned Readings: Lewicki, R.J., Barry, B. and Saunders, D. M. (2015).

Topic- Issue the BC govement faces
Can not be the housing crisis
Purpose:
To introduce and educate students on how a policy brief is written and allow learners to reiterate to government officials the importance and steps in planning around a specific issue.
Focus:
You are required to develop a policy brief on the development of a planning framework for a government jurisdiction that has a particular issue to address (i.e. federal, provincial, territorial, regional, aboriginal, or local) and the brief can be written addressing the planning framework for the entire organization or for a department, agency, or board. Your target audience and the recipient of the brief is the Minister or other political person in charge of the chosen organization. You have to assume that there is no planning framework in place.
If you would like to develop a policy brief for an organization that already has a planning framework in place, you may write a brief addressing the need for the organization to change the planning framework instead of developing a framework ‗from scratch for that particular issue‘
Your task is to identify the importance of a planning framework, assess planning frameworks, present options and develop a recommendation on what would be the most appropriate planning framework for your chosen organization and the issue at hand. Please see the course outline for a full description of the assignment.
