Early in the execution phase of a project to design a new engine in
an aerospace company, a key Design Engineer working out of one of the
company’s facilities located in Hamburg, Germany indicates to the
Project Manager (PM), who is working out of one of the company’s
facilities located in Connecticut, that the Design Engineer is not
available to work on project tasks that have been assigned to him by the
PM. The Design Engineer states that this is because his functional
manager has assigned him higher priority tasks on another project.
Discuss how the Path-Goal Leadership Theory and Model apply to the
following interactions: (1) PM- Sponsor; (2) PM-Functional Manager; (3)
PM- Design Engineer.

Cite a minimum of two current (published in the most recent 5-year

find sources. Make sure to cite your sources, following the CSU-Global Guide to Writing & APA (Links to an external site.).
