Eduqas PowerPoint Management and Leadership
The latest in the new series of PowerPoint resources aimed at assisting teachers with the delivery of the WJEC/Eduqas A-level Business specification (but are suitable for all boards). These slides and hand out are designed to support the delivery of the Component One topic of management and leadership. They examine the differences between a leader and a manager, before considering the roles and function of management. The concept of Management by Objectives is assessed and evaluated with a look at the benefits and drawbacks of this technique. Next the management theory of McGregor (Theory X and Theory Y) is evaluated before an examination of the leadership theories of Fielder and then Wright and Taylor. The slides also investigate the different leadership styles including autocratic, democratic, bureaucratic, paternalistic and laissez-faire and the importance and impact of leadership upon a business and its stakeholders. The slides contain the Quick Fire Five questions and also a practice essay (both with solutions).
