Prior to beginning your work on this interative assignment, please read Chapters 1, 2, 3, and 9 and review Chapter 7 (assigned in Week Two) in your textbook as well as the Peterson, R. S., Martorana, P. V., Smith, D. B., & Owens, P. D. (2003) article. Review the instructions for the Week Six Intervention Plan assignment.
For this interactive assignment, you will take on the role of a law enforcement professional. This week, you are presenting a lightning talk at a national conference for law enforcement officers. You will create a five minute maximum screencast presentation of a PowerPoint on Service Leadership. For the screencast portion, you may use any screencasting platform you wish. (Quick-start guides for Screencast-O-Matic and Jing are provided for your convenience.)
Create your PowerPoint presentation including the following elements.
Examine the recommendations made by the authors of both articles.
Summarize how the theoretical concepts of management and leadership described in the article could be applied to service leadership within law enforcement organizations.
Explain the critical principles of organizational behavior identified in the articles.
Analyze the author’s recommendations and explain the effect(s) they might have on social justice.
Include visual enhancements in your presentation. These may include appropriate images, a consistent font, appropriate animations, and transitions from content piece-to-content piece and slide-to-slide. (Images should be cited in APA format as outlined by the Ashford Writing Center (Links to an external site.). Students may wish to use the MSCJ Where to Get Free Images guide for assistance with accessing freely available public domain and/or Creative Commons licensed images.) It is recommended that you access Garr Reynolds Top Ten Slide Tips (Links to an external site.) that provides useful assistance with creating successful PowerPoint presentations.
After you have created your PowerPoint, you will create a screencast of your presentation. Your screencast may be three-five minutes long, but may not exceed five minutes. (It is highly recommended that you create a script and/or speaker’s notes for your PowerPoint to ensure that your screencast will meet the time requirements. This will also allow you to practice your presentation prior to recording it.) Once your screencast has been created, copy and paste the URL to your screencast into the initial post and attach your PowerPoint presentation to the post prior to submitting.
Guided Response: Review several of your colleagues’ presentation screencasts and respond to at least two of your peers by 11:59 p.m. on Day 7 of the week. You are encouraged to post your required replies earlier in the week to promote more meaningful and interactive discourse in this assignment forum.
Within your responses, you will provide peer evaluations. You are a working member of law enforcement attending the law enforcement conference. At the end of the conference, critically examine the qualities of your peer’s presentation as they pertain to the required elements.
In your response, include at least one question related to the presenter’s summary of how the theoretical concepts might be applied to service leadership in law enforcement organizations. Explain why the information on theoretical concepts of management and the critical principles of organizational behavior should be highlighted in your colleague’s Intervention Plan due in Week Six. Point out parts of the visual presentation you enjoyed and explain why. Describe any pieces of information you felt were missing or unclear and suggest ways in which these might be included or clarified in the presentation video.
