This document contains four mini-case studies. These scenarios enable the instructor to lead students in a discussion that compares what is required to exhibit ideal accountability in each setting, including accounting for the diverging perspectives of constituents.


Starter comment: This is actually a series of mini-cases rather than one case, which can be useful for helping students to compare questions about accountability across multiple situations, and showing how the same questions can lead to different conclusions in different situations. It can motivate students to want to be more mindful about their approach to leadership.
