When we think of public administration, we are concerning ourselves with the implementation or oversight of government policies within an organization. As such, your first step is to find an organization of your choosing that has a real-life issue or a situation they are currently dealing with. In other words, the public administrators in this organization were met with resistance, what was it? Or the policy implemented may been violated. What happened? How was it violated?
Now we are going to apply the statesmanship model discussed last week to this situation. The overarching idea of statesmanship is the call for moral character. In the context of this assignment, how can that model be applied to the situation at hand? How can someone, with decision making power, change what happened? What can they do to fix it? You want this person to exhibit the character traits we discussed last week. What interpersonal skills should be used to effectively administer statesmanship?
In other words, there is a problem that need to be fixed. How can that be fixed using what we discussed last week? Imagine a statesman at their best dealing with this issue. What does that look like? Who does that look like? What would you do?
Organization & Issue
You want to find a real organization with a real issue to work with. If you experienced issues in your organization, you may use that, just be sure to address all components in this study. You may use something you heard about on TV. Just be sure to research the organization and make sure it is indeed an issue, that is well documented.
You want to format this like a research paper in that you will have a title page, which can name the organization or the issue at hand. You want to number your pages. You want to double space and use headers to help organize your paper. You also want to include a reference page (an Abstract is not necessarily). Review the Rubric to ensure you cover all bases.
You want to apply all the reading material. Include the book, presentations, and articles used thus far. You also want to include 3 additional sources peer reviewed sources that add value to what you are discussing.
Please note, each Case Study will have a different direction, but the concept may be the same. I will provide as much feedback as necessary to help you moving forward.
This is a good opportunity to explore leadership in an organization. Have fun with it, do not over think it. You all did a fantastic job on your discussions, so you can do well on this too.
