Instructions

Lower-level managers are a vital part of the agency’s mission. Frontline managers and supervisors provide essential services on a daily basis to the organization. Their input is crucial for improving service delivery and meeting mission objectives. The purpose of this assignment is to examine the impact of the senior executive’s vision on the workforce.

While serving as a division director within the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), you were tasked with briefing the senior executive team regarding the impact of the newly developed strategic plan. The new strategic plan proposes a decrease in the annual appropriation for HUD’s Homelessness Assistance Program. The residual funding would then be transitioned to HUD’s Disaster Assistance Program. Your team recommends no changes to the Homelessness Assistance Program due to the direct impacts on individuals who are homeless. For this assignment, you will prepare a PowerPoint presentation designed to convince the senior executive team why there should be no funding degree to the homeless program.

Ensure that your PowerPoint presentation addresses the following:

Compile data on the current state of the Homelessness Assistance Program.

Produce evidence of the Homelessness Assistance Program’s benefits to the individuals who are homeless.

Reconstruct a plan to keep the Homelessness Assistant Program funding by projecting potential long-term benefits of the program.

Organize a plan for a periodic briefing of the Homelessness Assistance Program to the executive team.

Length: 8-10 slides, not including title and reference slides.

Your presentation should demonstrate thoughtful consideration of the ideas and concepts presented in the course and provide new thoughts and insights relating directly to this topic. Your response should reflect scholarly writing and current APA standards. Be sure to adhere to Northcentral University’s Academic Integrity Policy.

Week 5 – Assignment: Assess Leadership Challenges

Instructions

Assessing leadership challenges is an important function within public administration. Leading public agencies comes with certain risks and challenges that can affect service quality and delivery. For this assignment, you are a public administrator at the Small Business Administration (SBA); you will create a newsletter article for distribution to the general public that promotes some of the courses in the Learning Center that are available to the public.

The senior executive has announced new upcoming SBA contracts and grant funding in a congressional testimony, and since then your agency has been receiving an influx of emails, letters, and phone calls about the various SBA programs and processes. These inquires have created an operating challenge for the agency because there are not enough employees to attend to these requests. Create a newsletter that informs the public of the courses available through the SBA portal that can help answer their questions. Ensure your newsletter includes the following:

Explain the purpose of the SBA Learning Center.

Provide an overview of SBA’s grants and contract vehicles.

Describe some of the courses available to the public.

Develop a plan for dealing with an increase in online course attendance, and then explain your plan to overcome technical challenges as a result of the increase.

Length: 5-7 pages, not including title and reference pages

References: Include a minimum of 5 scholarly resources.

Your presentation should demonstrate thoughtful consideration of the ideas and concepts presented in the course and provide new thoughts and insights relating directly to this topic.
