Ndividual Case Analysis

In this week’s article by Osterholm, the author presents a possibility of another pandemic. Using this Learning Resource as well as 2–4 additional resources you may find from the Walden Library, current events, etc., consider your leadership perspective during a pandemic influenza outbreak in the United States.
As you collaborate with your group, individually, select one of the following leadership roles that would respond during this outbreak:

  • Director, FEMA
  • Director, CDC
  • Governor of an afflicted state

Based on the leadership role you selected for the assignment, include the following:

  • A summary of the leadership challenges this leader would face in assuring the system changes necessary to be prepared for the next pandemic
  • An explanation of how your leadership challenges as this leader relate to challenges of the other leaders listed above
  • Incident Response Commander
  • Response Leader, American Red Cross (or other non-governmental organization)

I chose the role of Response Leader, American Red Cross
Support your Case Study with specific references to all resources and current literature used in its preparation. You are to provide a reference list for all resources, including those in the Learning Resources for this course.
Then, using your leadership assignment for the case study, collaborate with your colleagues to create a Group Case Study Analysis that includes:

  • An explanation of how the challenges identified in the individual case analyses collectively affect crisis response by the system and the individuals within it
  • An explanation of how transformational and transactional leaders might influence outcomes within this case
  • A summary of how poor leadership might affect the outcome of the case
