Assignment I

Life Cycle Analysis (LCA)


Assignment I Instructions

In this course, a cumulative project will be completed in three assignments. The first portion of the course project involves a life cycle analysis (LCA), the second portion (assignment II) will be a pollution prevention (P2) audit, and the third portion (assignment III) will focus on corporate philosophy related to pollution prevention (P2).


The product to study and research throughout the three assignments projects is pharmaceutical manufacturing.


Life Cycle Analysis (LCA)

This assignment I project requirement is to prepare a life cycle analysis (LCA) of pharmaceutical manufacturing. The LCA must:

·       be qualitative and quantitative,

·       include tables and figures

·       include a section exploring the value of ISO 14001 certification


Life Cycle Analysis follow four basic steps:

1.     raw materials used

2.     manufacturing or assembling of the product (widget) using materials

3.     how the product is used

4.     the end-of-life (recycled, repurposed, reused).


The assessment may be conducted for all stages of the life cycle (i.e., raw materials acquisition, manufacturing, use/reuse/maintenance, and recycling/waste management). (Dupont, et al 2017)


To complete this project, please refer to the attached: 

   – Example LCA

   – Assignment II Guide

   – 2 Peer-Reviewed Articles

   – Chapter 26 (Pharmaceutical Manufacturing) from the textbook listed below (Dupont, 2017).

As you grow into a leadership or management position, you are not only responsible for your behavior, but also the behavior of your team members. It is especially important that you and your team are exposed to the idea of failure and how it relates directly to leadership. 

Many people avoid situations in which they might fail. Other individuals fear failure so much they will not take a risk or have an opinion other than what the group wants. There is an old adage that says, “If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again.” 

Select a leader in business, sports, management, or government and plan a short 20-minute interview. The interview may be over the phone or in person.

Suggested interview questions: 

  • What can be learned by failing?
  • You seem pretty confident and successful. Have you ever exposed your team to the idea of failure to prepare them for consequences if the wrong choices are made? 
  • What can be learned by failing?
  • In what ways does failure affect success? 
  • What do you think is the value of failure?
  • How can having a failure change the way you make decisions or do business in the future? How? 
  • Some leaders seem to always make the right decisions and therefore experience a lot of success. How can too much success interfere with creativity?
  • What if we could design a controlled failure system for work that could tap creativity without causing fear or stress? 

Write a five to seven (5) page paper in which you:

  1. Propose two (2) ways that you can use a failure in your life or career to improve your vision as a leader.
  2. Examine the key traits and characteristics that transformational leaders possess. Predict the impact that a transformational leader’s response to a failure would have on performance and behavior in his or her employees. Provide a rationale for your response. 
  3. Determine whether or not you believe that failure is an integral part of life that contributes to leadership effectiveness. Provide two (2) examples to support your response. 
  4. Create a list of five (5) best practices for leaders to follow in order to be effective after a failure in the workplace. Support each practice with examples from your interview.
  5. Determine the manner in which experiences with failure and leadership affect the risk taking and decision making behaviors of an individual on a leadership track. Provide a rationale for your response. 
  6. Use at least five (5) quality academic resources in this assignment. Note: Wikipedia does not qualify as an academic resource.
