Lenovo at the crossroads: Coronavirus meets complexity (A copy of the case study is attached).
In February 2020, the Senior Vice President of Strategy and Marketing was faced with some critical questions:
How can Lenovo best position itself at the intersection of globalisation, technology-backed 3s strategy, and manufacturing / supply chain challenges posed by the coronavirus outbreak?
How can Lenovo not only service the current crisis but continue to thrive on the global stage?
Utilising the knowledge that you have gained during the module, you are required to write a critical literature review, including the relevance and applicability of contemporary leadership theories, of the leadership factors that will affect her decisions.
The review should conclude with a reflective statement that covers your thoughts regarding similarities / differences between the case of Lenovo and your organisation.
In order to successfully complete this assignment, your will need to provide critical reflections on, in light of your wider academic reading, the opportunities and challenges that leaders face (both now and in the future).
