Time Management

This assignment is about you. It is an assessment of your abilities and traits.

Every week you will complete a personal assessment–your own personal leadership framework.

This assignment will help you figure out what style of leadership you have been following and whether this style works for you.

Through this assignment, you will find the various approaches of leadership that complement each other. There is no one theory that describes the only way to be an effective leader. Each theory focuses on different issues, but they all help you to better understand how to become a successful leader.

Using the South University Online Library or the Internet, research about Time Management Assessment.

Note: You can also use the following link to access the Time Management Assessment: http://literacynet.org/icans/chapter03/timemgmt.html

Based on your research and understanding, create a paper in a 3- to 4-page Microsoft Word document that:

  • Incorporates your time management self-assessment information and the concepts learned this week (leadership theories, leadership versus management, professional nursing organizations, and time management).
  • Includes identification of one leadership theory, which you feel best describes your leadership style.
  • Includes a comparison between leadership and management.
  • Includes a suggestion on how to apply this week’s concepts to the work environment.

Support your responses with examples.

On a separate references page, cite all sources using APA format.

Assignment 1: Discussion—Initial Public Offerings

There is something exciting about being a part of an Initial Public Offering (IPO). Who can forget Martha Stewart banging the gavel at Wall Street’s opening on the day her stock went public?

 

However, the reality is something completely different. While we remember Stewart at the top of her game, we also remember what happened soon after. Public companies are under much more scrutiny. In recent years, many companies have changed course and gone private.

 

For this assignment, address the following questions:

 

  • What is the difference between a privately held company and a publicly held company? Explain your answers.
  • What are the reasons why companies would choose to have an IPO?  Why do some firms remain or go private? Explain your answers.
  • Identify at least three regulatory agencies involved in an IPO.  Explain their respective roles in such an offering.
  • What are at least three of the government’s requirements for a company that is considering going public?
  • Is going public always the best strategy for a company? Why or why not?

Your answers should address all of the questions above.
