Prepare and post a “self-introduction” in your role as the CEO. Use a 7-10 slide maximum narrated PPT presentation (approximate time not to exceed 10 minutes). While not optimal, if narration proves problematic, which can be the case for some MAC users, students may wish to create a separate audio file to accompany the presentation. If anyone wishes to create a video that is also a great alternative. The main thing is that whatever option you choose, it must be possible for your colleagues and the faculty to access, hear, and see your presentation. For the role play introduction include the following plus any information your professor may request pertaining to the roundtable topic:
Introduction: In your CEO role, “your” name and a little about yourself and your organization. The name of the organization is Accenture.
A brief summary of major successes and challenges that “you” believe have contributed to your knowledge and skill as a leader.
As part of your narrated presentation, respond to the CEO roundtable discussion topic, providing your initial comments along with good supporting evidence. The discussion topic is:
Is your (role play) company’s culture contributing to or impairing its competitive advantage? Share your “secrets to success” if the answer is yes or offer your recommendations if not. (As thoughtful and well educated leaders, it is expected that your analysis and recommendations will be supported with evidence from research. Remember to stay in your CEO role when contributing to this roundtable discussion).
