Course Project Part 1: Measuring Organizational Effectiveness

Part 1 of the course project requires students to explain factors essential for measuring organizational effectiveness in criminal justice. Based on your reading from Chapter 1-6 of your textbook, analyze two specific techniques used to measure organizational effectiveness. Examples include:

  • Mintzberg’s model of CEOs,
  • Machiavelli’s tenets,  
  • 12 qualities of a good officer,
  • quasi-military model of policing, and
  • community policing model.

Compare and contrast the selected techniques with how effective they might be in promoting leadership ability that supports the organizational common goals presented within a police agency’s mission and vision statements. Also, explain how organizational theories (covered in Chapter 2 of your textbook) have influenced the techniques you selected. In addition to the textbook, students must incorporate at least two other scholarly resources as part of their examination of the selected techniques.

Part 1 of the course project should be three to four pages in length, not counting the title and reference pages. Please review the general guidelines for papers to obtain a description of other formatting requirements.

CSU requires that students use the APA style for papers and projects. Therefore, the APA rules for formatting, quoting, paraphrasing, citing, and listing of sources are to be followed.
