Using the 5Ps Leadership Analysis to Examine the Battle of Antietam: An Explanation and Case Study
Hull, Bradley Z.; Allen, Scott J.
Journal of Leadership Education, v11 n1 p245-262 Win 2012
The authors describe an exploratory analytical tool called "The 5Ps Leadership Analysis" (Personal Attributes, Position, Purpose, Practices/Processes, and Product) as a heuristic for better understanding the complexities of leadership. Using "The 5Ps Leadership Analysis," the authors explore the leadership of General Robert E. Lee of the Confederate Army of Northern Virginia and General George B. McClellan of the Union Army of the Potomac--more specifically, the leadership of the two generals on September 17, 1862 during the Battle of Antietam. The paper concludes with suggestions for application in the classroom. (Contains 1 figure and 1 table.)
