Resources: Effective Organizational Leadership
Effective organizational leadership is required for any business that wants to be successful in innovating, developing, and growing. With the rapid pace of globalization and technological advancements, companies are continuously changing and adapting to the business environment. Organizations need to be conscious of the leadership models, styles, and theories and the effectiveness of the role and leading style. As you read each of the following articles, pay particular attention to the leadership styles and models that are presented. Note the frameworks that are used to explain the concepts of effective organizational leadership adapting leadership styles to address specific organizational needs.Ali, K. S., & Islam, M. A. (2020). Effective dimension of leadership style for organizational performance: A conceptual study. International Journal of Management, Accounting and Economics, 7(1), 30–40.

Resources: Leading with Effective Marketing ManagementMarketing is an essential aspect of a business as companies work to maximize the effectiveness of their strategies. As companies use marketing to foster business growth, selecting the right strategy is key. A tool that can be used to analyze the correct growth strategy is the Ansoff Growth Matrix (aka Ansoff Matrix), which offers the four strategic growth objectives of market penetration, market development, product development, and diversification. This resource is a guide that provides an overview of the matrix and how it is used:Ansoff Matrix. (n.d.). What is the Ansoff Matrix? https://www.ansoffmatrix.com/
Another factor in leading with effective marketing is having a detailed understanding of the target market and customer needs. In today’s digital age, understanding the customer and their needs offers both opportunities and challenges. Data analytics and technology offer more opportunities for marketing research and customer relationship management, but the sheer amount of data can make interpreting the results challenging. This article discusses how you can use data to develop a marketing and business strategy that is customer-centric:Latinovic, Z., & Chatterjee, S. C. (2019). Customer centricity in the digital age. MIT Sloan Management Review, 60(4).
As technology advances and social media continues to grow, opportunities to interact with and reach customers allow for marketing strategies to be integrated while utilizing different channels. This article presents some of the channels and tools available with digital marketing and social media marketing and shows how those concepts are different:Breitwieser, J. (2020, April 16). The difference between digital marketing and social media marketing (and why you should care). Business 2 Community. https://www.business2community.com/digital-marketi…
Resources: Leading with Effective Technological InnovationTechnological innovation is the use of technology to support activities such as research and development, design of new products and services, generating new technological knowledge, finding new ways of reaching customers, or creating new opportunities for businesses. Technology can often be an innovation by itself, but technological advancement can also spawn innovation related to many aspects of the company regarding business operations. The following resources will help you understand how technology is being used to drive and support innovation.Read the following to learn about technological innovation and some of its implications for businesses.Brynjolfsson, E., & Schrage, M. (2009, August). The new, faster face of innovation: Thanks to technology, change has never been so easy or so cheap. Wall Street Journal, R.3.
This article provides and overview of Industry 4.0 and how digitization is revolutionizing manufacturing:Marr, B. (2018, September 2). What is Industry 4.0? Here’s a super easy explanation for anyone. Forbes. https://www.forbes.com/sites/bernardmarr/2018/09/0…
This article discusses the academic literature related to Industry 4.0. As you read, note the discussion of business models, the reference to the product service system (PSS) framework, and the theories describing innovation levels related to a business model innovation framework. When analyzing articles at the doctoral level, it is a good idea to see how models, theories, and frameworks are used to advance your understanding of the concepts and build expertise related to the topics.Ibarra, D., Ganzarain, J., & Igartua, J. (2018). Business model innovation through industry 4.0: A review. Procedia Manufacturing, 22, 4–10.
Resources: Professional Development Framework
In previous courses, you began to create a Professional Development Framework to improve your knowledge, skills, and competencies, and to develop your academic and professional identity as a DBA scholar-practitioner. Development of each domain is included in a different course:DB8400/DB-FPX8400 – Knowledge & Scholarly Thinking.
DB8420/DB-FPX8420 – Advocate for Change.
DB8630/DB-FPX8630 (or DB8730/DB-FPX8730) – Personal Effectiveness and Professional Identity.
DB9801/DB-FPX9801 – Applied Research Competencies.
DB9804/DB-FPX9804 – Final Framework included in your Presentation of Capstone Project.
To continue your growth between these courses, we suggest that you take some time to think back on your doctoral journey so far and write a brief reflection in your Professional Development Journal [DOCX]. You may consider addressing one or more of the following questions.Have you discussed your framework plan with your informal contact network? If so, how? If not, why?
How many of your goals have you acted upon? Describe the impact you’ve experienced.
How has your framework influenced how you perceive yourself?
Looking forward to domains you have not developed yet, what are your current strengths in that domain area? What are possible skills that you would like to develop?
This is a suggested activity that you may choose to do. Your journal is not graded in this course, and you do not need to submit it to your instructor.If you would like to review the framework, see the following:DBA Professional Development Framework.
