Critical Issues: Leadership is an important facet of utilizing the Business Process Model, particularly within the "People Phase". Identifying the "type" of leader that will manage and direct the new process or process change after BPM completion is necessary to ensure success.
For the critical issues area of this assignment you will need to conduct research on "Leadership" and answer the following questions:

Conclusions/Recommendation: State your conclusions in a concise executive summary.
