LE PMA & Project

Today, i ve finished the first meeting with Paul. I choosed his project is Leader Development as my project. During the meeting, he gave me a good idea about the area i need to cover. The topic probably will subject to How can Leader in a typical Chinese SME be developed? or How can leadership capability of Chinese maangers in an SME be improved? Paul has guided me to focus on my family's company. To analyssi the leadership in the company and find the problems by using questionnaire, interview or other ways. and then to think about how to over these problem from leadership literature. At the same time, thinking about the relevant part like how to develop an effective leaders and Chinese leadership in SME. Totally speaking, this meeting have brought lots of interests and enthusiasm on the project, also, gave me lots of idea to structure the content.

On the morning, Paus has explained our LE PMA again. according to the analysis, i made the outline of the content.Frstly, to introduce the kind of leadership theories. and then to decide what theories will be used in the case, why we like to adopt them, and how to improve leader's current situation. finally, how to suggest them to John and other director by coaching. That is my outline, is it make sense?

Leadership theories can be classfied into as one of eight major types, probably, i will adopt Transactional Theory and Transformational Theory. Transactional Theory focus on the role of superbision, organizaition, and group performance. it base leadership on a system of reward and punishement. i think it is a good way for performance management for leaders. Transformational theory is upon the connection formed between leaders and folloers. leaders are focus on the performance of group member. but also want each person to fulfill his or her potential.

EFQM, self–assessment


EFQM excellence model consists of nine criteria, which can be used to assess an organization¡¯s process towards to excellence. The model recognize that excellence results with respect to Performance, Customers, People and Society are achieved through Leadership driving Policy and Strategy, that is delivered through people, partnership and Resources and Processes. At the heart of the Model lies the RADAR logic (Results, Approach, Deployment, Assessment and Review), which is used when assessing Enabler criteria and assessing ¡° Results ¡°criteria.

How does EFQM work?

Self-assessment- where organizations grade themselves against a set of detailed criteria under each of the nine heading, it helps to identify your organizations¡¯s strengths and areas for improvement, and attempts to avoid the potentially unsatisfactory aspects of auditing. There are two ways for self-assessment: RADAR logic and Pathfinder Card (concept of them were shown on the CBE website).

The benefits of self-assessment:

1. Help organization, large and small, in the private and public sectors, work more effectively.

2. The process allows the organization to discern clearly its strengths and areas in which improvement can be made.

l3.Educates people on the Foundamental Concepts and framework for managing and improving the organization and how it relates to their responsiblilities

4.Integrates the various improvement initiatives into normal operations

The weakness of self-assessment:

l .Time, human resource, money waste. Because it demands a critical analysis of the organization by the whole staff and management, it includes the opportunity to communicate and evaluate.

2.Key issue is difficult in motivating some of the staff formally, especially as some staff were told by management that they had to take part at the self-assessment.
