Seminars and Individual Development Plan (IDP)
The seminar C-group seminar about Leadership in International Settings will take place on 22/11 between 17-21 in R42.
For some of you this will be your regular seminar, for others hopefully an opportunity to catch up. In seminar group C there is plenty room for additional students from other seminar groups to catch up. The other seminar groups will be rather crowded.
During the seminars we explore the field of leadership and organizational change in more detail. Your participation is compulsary. Your presence in the seminars is required as they are an important part for your learning in the course. This cannot be replaced by additional assignments. Instead, being present at less than two seminars automatically leads to a fail on this examination component. Furthermore, absence on one of the seminars has consequences for the points you receive for this examination component.
If you cannot come to a seminar, you may, if there are free places available, participate in the seminar together with one of the other seminar groups (see course schedule). You do not need to notify us beforehand, but we cannot promise you that there are free places until the start of the seminar.

Leadership in international settings
No preparation is required.
Case SAAB - Leading Change
For Case SAAB, which is about organization change at Saab Aeronautics you are required to read through the case study beforehand. You can find this case study in the course file archive. In order to enter the seminar, each student is required to perform an entry test in order to make sure that you have read the case. The questions for this entry test can also be found in the course file archive. Answers on these questions can be short and need to be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org at the latest in the morning (before 8.00 am) of the seminar. Make sure that your paper is identifyable by writing your name on the paper. Please bring also a paper copy of your answers to the seminar.
Individual development plan (IDP)
The individual development plan is a facultative assignment for which you can earn some additional points. In the first place, this assignment is thought to be contributing to your own personal development. Therefore, evaluation (and examination) of this assignment is mainly based on whether or not you make sufficient use of the concepts from the course literature and the self-assessment tests, and the depth of your own reflections. In other words, the exact content of your plan in terms of your strenghts, weaknesses and issues to work further with is very personal and not evaluated in terms of good or bad. You may write the individual development plan in Swedish or English.
The assignment is as follows:
- Take a starting point in your personal strengths and weaknesses
- Use the self-assessment excersizes to get an (even better) perspective on yourself (mainly from chapter 4 of the book)
- If you want, complement with a personality test on http://www.humanmetrics.com/cgi-win/JTypes2.asp or www.keirsey.com
Your individual development plan must at least include:
1. Your own reflection on your strengths and weaknesses and discussion on outcome of self-assessment excersizes
2. A plan for working further on your strengths and weaknesses (set SMART goals - Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant and Timely)
3. Reflect upon your prerequisites to become a leader
The report must be between 2-4 pages and need to be handed in before December 14 9.00 hours by e-mail to email@example.com . Reports that are handed in after this date and time will not be taken into consideration!
