Was the analysis accurate and supported by theory?

Learning Goal: I’m working on a film writing question and need support to help me learn.Assessment: Team Activity, Film Symposium #1 (20% group assessment)The Movie for analysis: Jobs (2013). Biography/Drama; PG-13 A relatively bland yet interesting retelling of Steve Job’s ascension from being a college dropout to one of the most influential and recognizable entrepreneurs of the twentieth century.The purpose of this Film Symposium activity is to use the prescribed feature film to illustrate key leadership concepts and processes discussed in class sessions and in the readings. The group will decide collaboratively which leadership concepts and processes to emphasise in this written assignment. (It should be noted here that information on this topic is broadly available, however your goal is not to provide general research in this area but to be specific in your answers to the questions asked; including your answer’s relevance to the concepts and theory covered in this subject.)Your team brief:Analyse Job’s leadership style. Consider all perspectives discussed in this class.1. Analyse Steve Job’s leadership style as depicted in this film.2. Identify two occasions when (and how) Steve Jobs gains and especially tries to retain leadership.3. What approaches and perspectives of leadership are evident/are not evident in this movie, referringto those discussed in class sessions? – You may discuss up to 6 different approaches in your analysis.The task is to produce a summary of your group’s findings (1450-1600 word maximum). *As an appendix include your team’s ‘team reflection form’ and your team contract (these are not included as part of your word count).Grading criteria follows:a. Quality and depth of analysis: 75%− Was the analysis accurate and supported by theory?− Did the reference to scenes in the movie illustrate points made?− Were the assigned questions answered in sufficient depth, or did the group concentrate on limitedconcepts?b. Academic style, editing, and proofreading: 25%− Was the document written with the appropriate academic style and tone?− Was the grammar, sentence structure and spelling at an appropriate academic standard?− Reference list (not included in word count) and in-text referencing APA compliant?c. Team Organization and Collaboration: CATME will be a factor influencing this criterion.Team Assessments: Core 2 Team Activities x 2 (20% each)TEAM SELECTIONEach student will participate in both formative and summative teamwork throughout the semester. Your lecturer will place you into teams based on diversity, which promotes creativity and improved problem solving in groups. Depending upon the class size, teams will consist of 5-7 members. The lecturer will aim to divide the class into a maximum of six teams.Team Activities for assessment: Film Symposium #1 & #2The purpose of these activities is to use the prescribed feature film to illustrate key concepts and processes discussed and learned in class sessions and in the readings. The group will decide which concepts and processes to emphasize for these tasks.Teamwork and Leadership is evident in many different situations; in sport, in social activities, at work, to name just a few. To consider the whole ‘teamwork – collaboration’ process in action we have many great films powerful in demonstrating team development, communication, and team formation and processes, including leadership.When viewing a movie for this purpose in your ‘Film Symposium activity’, it is not just about watching for the entertainment value. You should take the time to break down segments of the film and think about how they relate to leadership and/or teamwork theory, and how they might relate to your own team activities. Each movie you are required to analyse will include several questions for you to consider.Suggestion: To prepare for these assignments, view the required film individually first, then discuss ‘virtually’ together as a team. Take careful notes and discuss which relevant concepts and processes are best illustrated by the film.Here is a brief example of a movie demonstrating relevant teamwork concepts: ‘The movie Miracle is, without a doubt, one of the best examples of how a team goes through the four stages of team development, and how, ultimately a spirit of community appears. Herb Brooks (played by Kurt Russell) brings in a new player just a few weeks before the beginning of the 1980 Olympic opening ceremony. The players are upset, and the chemistry of the team is compromised. This comes to a head when four team members ask to see Herb and tell him it is not fair. Herb asks why not? One player responds with, “We’re a family”. This is the point that shows Herb he has a solid team that is committed to each other’. (teamsrock.com)In the above example it is clear the team members have progressed through Tuckman’s team formation stages (Tuckman, 1965) and created a ‘psychological contract’ (Rousseau, 2001) to enable them to perform as a team, however the event of a newcomer joining the team creates disharmony which therefore impacts the team’s stability.For your interest, there are many movies offering good illustrations of leadership and team processes. Here is just a few: Ocean’s 11, Apollo 13, Remember the Titans, The Sting, Braveheart, and The Green Berets. Name/Subject: Core 2 Collaboration, Teams, & Leadership.
