Background

Just as each organization faces challenges and pressures in a competitive global economy, so too each major professional discipline field (HR, marketing, supply chain, finance, logistics, etc.) faces its own unique challenges. These exist as a result of the changing nature of industries, political and legislative change, talent management and technology for example. The main aim for professions serving organizational goals within this dynamic context is to remain relevant, proactive and value-adding. This demands that the managers of today need to assess and analyse future trends which impact their discipline field and develop the knowledge, skills and competencies of employees to meet these challenges. It also means that higher and further education institutions need to work closely with discipline field experts to understand future industry needs. 

The assignment 

  1. Students need to conduct detailed secondary research to identify the future challenges which impact their area of specialization. This research should identify relevant global ‘megatrends’ and more specifically, identify discipline-specific challenges which the professionals of the future need to acknowledge, accommodate and embrace. 

Guidance 

  • Provide a definition and an explanation of your intended area of specialization
  • Identify the key tasks or the diversity of work that takes place within this field 
  • Provide a background to the field in terms of recent evolution/growth/change 
  • Identify broad trends which impact business generally, synthesizing views and opinions from a number of sources 
  • Discuss the impact of these trends on your specialization area 
  • Identify sector/field-specific challenges again using multiple sources to arrive at a consolidated opinion  
  • Discuss / critique / validate these challenges in relation to your chosen field 
  1. Having identified key challenges, students will make substantiated recommendations as to how their chosen profession can best respond to these future challenges: 
  • Recommendations should be per challenge
  • Specific courses of action should be outlined 
  • The importance of following recommendations should be emphasized 
  • The benefits of the following recommendations should be presented 
  • The implications of not following recommendations should be highlighted 
  1. The professional, report style format of the assignment should include: 
  • Background: setting the scene 
  • Research aim: what does the research set out to achieve? (inform, meet course criteria, fulfil specific GLOs ULOs, personal goals)  
  • Research questions: What specifically will the research seek answers to? (2-3 key questions)  
  • Research methods: how will you go about completing the assignment in terms of data gathering and interpretation?  
  • Data collection: what data will be collected specifically and from what sources?  
  • Data analysis: what does your research reveal?  
  • Recommendations: what should change and why?  
  • Conclusion: Bringing it all together 
  1. Endnote should be used to capture and manage citations, of which there should be no fewer than 20. A screenshot of the Endnote file needs to accompany the assignment submission. 

Note: BSC 

  1. Clear, detailed evidence is to be provided in the form of an assignment task diary to evidence how time was allocated to specific assignment requirements, how time allocation was reviewed, how the learning was achieved and how variations to the plan were managed.
