Ok so today I again have looked at some theories and I believe this should be taught at a post graduate level. It is the competing values framework by Quinn and Rohrbaugh. It deals with four models which I will do my best to interpret:

• Human relations model – How a leader interacts with followers.

• Open systems model – How an openness can be developed within a group. Specifically it looks at strategies for how this can be done. This reminds me in some ways about Socratic Dialogue in that it is also an open system for how interactions may take place.

• Rational goal model – Devising goals which are rational and which can be achieved. It sort of reminds me about SMART goals in some way. Perhaps there is some correlation between these two.

• Internal process model – How a leader can develop processes to work internally within his / her group.

I find that although this framework is called competing values it is not in many ways. Rather it really should be four unique models and then developed further. I think overall this model is more valuable than the others which I have discussed in that easier to use. I assume that this is because these ideas can be worked on flexibly rather than adhered to strictly.
