RWBI BIO0226 Assignment One – Identifying Themes and Concerns for the Benefit of the Individual Business Manager: Lectures One and Two

LEARNING OUTCOMES

This assignment assesses the following learning outcomes:

1. Detect the characteristics of new and unstructured external issues that impinge on organisational
performance.
2. Appreciate the nature of change driven by issues not arising from within the organisation.
4. Positively engage with new and unstructured issues in a deliberate and systematic fashion.
7. Construct and present information in a coherent and professional format which inspires further
inquiry.

  1. The first two guest lectures contain distinct and contradictory ideas (equivalent to the Unstructured Information typically shared during a board/business meeting without prior knowledge of the members). Using your notes, research and ‘board-room’ presentations use thematic analysis to identify connections, either obvious or less clear, between the two lectures that have a common theme. The themes should have potential relevance to individual business managers in the changing nature of work now and in the future.
  2. Having identified three or four (maximum) common themes use text books, journals and secondary research to support your unique argument(s) for why managers and leaders should take note of these concerns in their future practice.
  3. The work should offer arguments that are directly drawn from these connections and should demonstrate your unique thinking supported by evidence from academic research, and drawing directly on previous learning from within the course. These links must be explicitly grounded in academic concepts and theory, supported by good referencing.
  4. A short critical and personal reflection on your approach to dialogue and argumentation should contain no more than 200 words. (Using the word “I” in this section is permissible.)

Your answer should be in an assignment format.

Tutor referral will apply to this assessment component. Tutor – referred work must be resubmitted one week after notification.

Thematic connections: The work will clearly demonstrate the building of a coherent argument built from the unstructured content from guest speaker contributions. Description should be avoided, instead critically evaluating the content that relates to a managerial perspective.

Evidenced argumentation: Assignments will give strong argued reasoning for the points raised. They will demonstrate wider reading and cite examples from the lectures in support. A wide variety of academic materials is recommended including textbooks, journal articles and reliable websites all of which should be accurately referenced. Recommended reading lists are available in the handbook but original, relevant research will be recognised.

Structured insights and reflection: There will be an appropriate level of coherency in the argument where the unstructured ideas have been brought together to offer key points along with personal reflection. Appropriate assignment format. Please make an appointment with the Academic Skills Tutors for any additional help needed with assignment writing and referencing.

RWBI BIO0226 Assignment Two – Identifying Themes and Concerns to support Strategic Direction: a paper for the attention of the Board of Directors: Lectures Three, Four and Five

LEARNING OUTCOMES

This assignment assesses the following learning outcomes:

3. Understand the potential of an outward looking orientation for managers and the development of associated capabilities.

4. Positively engage with new and unstructured issues in a deliberate and systematic fashion.

5. Systematically assess, research and highlight dominant elements extracted from a basket of unstructured information.

6. Foster the early stages of deeper questioning and debate, hold argued positions and be open to question with peers.
7. Construct and present information in a coherent and professional format which inspires further inquiry.

1. As in assignment one, use your notes, research and presentations and then thematic analysis to identify three to four common connections, but this time based on lectures three, four and five. However, in this second assignment your arguments should be concerned with Issues of Strategic Importance, drawn from the themes, and of general value to any typical business and therefore should be addressed as a paper to the Company Board. (Strategic
Direction is concerned with the long-term, beyond the financial year, and not immediate operational performance.)

2. Having identified three or four (maximum) common themes and concerns now use text books, journals and secondary research to support your unique arguments for why The Board should take note that these concerns are significant to them.

3. Therefore, the arguments offered will NOT be concerned with the practice of individual managers but more concerned with the long-term survival and performance of a company as a whole. E.g. If you identify a theme concerned with supply chain management, you should argue, using the lecture and your additional research for how supply chain management in the future is changing and why this might be a concern for businesses in general.

4. The work should offer arguments that are directly drawn from the connections and should demonstrate your unique thinking supported by evidence from academic research and previous learning from within the course. These links must be explicitly grounded in academic concepts and theory, supported by good referencing.

5. A short critical and personal reflection on your approach to questioning should contain no more than 200 words. (Using the word “I” in this section is permissible.)

The work will be assessed in three areas:

Thematic connections: The work will clearly demonstrate the building of a coherent argument built from the unstructured content from guest speaker contributions. Description should be avoided, instead critically evaluating the content that relates to a strategic perspective.

Evidenced argumentation: Assignments will give strong argued reasoning for the points raised. They will demonstrate wider reading and cite examples from the lectures in support. A wide variety of academic materials is recommended including textbooks, journal articles and reliable websites all of which should be accurately referenced. Recommended reading lists are available in the handbook but original, relevant research will be recognised.

Structured insights and reflection: There will be an appropriate level of coherency in the argument where the unstructured ideas have been brought together to offer key points along with personal reflection. Appropriate assignment format. Please make an appointment with the Academic Skills Tutors for any additional help needed with assignment writing and referencing.
