Assessment brief(s)
Assessment Task 1: Group Assignment (50%)
This assignment involves students working normally in groups of five. Groups will normally be arranged by the module leader. Wherever possible, the module leader will try to ensure that the groups are culturally mixed and gender mixed. Each group will be required to select a recent journal article that focuses on one aspect of the topic you have chosen. There are a number of journal articles under MyReading on Unilearn which may be used. Alternative journal articles may be used, but these must be agreed with the module leader.

This assessment has two parts:
Part 1:
The group should prepare and deliver a short presentation to include the following:
1) A brief summary of the chosen article including its key concepts
2) Comment on how the article relates to cross-cultural management
3) A critique of the article to include your observations on the strengths and weaknesses of the article
 The presentations will be scheduled during the teaching programme. The schedule will be organised and publicised in the first three weeks of teaching.
 The presentation should last no more than 10 minutes. It will be followed by questions and a short class discussion.
 Each member of the group must participate in the presentation and in roughly equal proportion.
 Other groups should participate in the discussion/Q&A section.
 Students should pay particular attention to the quality of the supporting presentation materials (for example, PowerPoint slides).
 Supporting materials (e.g., PowerPoint slides) must be submitted on to the Unilearn link by Sunday 23.59pm 11 th March. The first page of the supporting materials should include all members’ names, student numbers, and allocated presentation time (e.g., Monday 12 th March).
 The groups are expected to work together in completion of the presentation. The exercise is intended to provide opportunities to  develop group working skills and cross cultural group work skills.
