Assessment Brief:
You have been successful in securing your first consultancy role with International Management Consultancy (IMC, a fictional consultancy firm). It is your first day and following an induction to the organisation, you have returned to your desk and opened your email to find a link to your consultancy briefs for the next 6 months. [See the link to the employer videos on Moodle]
The email outlines that you are required to complete ONE consultancy project out of a choice of four projects which must be completed by 9th January 2017. You are required to follow the IMC consultancy report structure below:
IMC Report Structure
You will need to make reference throughout your report to relevant principles, theoretical models and tools covered in the module. Your report should be between 3,000 -3,500 words.
Section 1: The organisation and environment (1000-1100)
1a: The client’s needs and external environment
In this section, making reference to the case you have chosen, identify the client’s needs. Using appropriate tools and techniques, analyse the key factors in the environment that could have a significant impact on the organisation.
1b: The organisation and its internal environment
In this section you will also carry out an analysis of the organisation making reference to its values, how it supports leadership principles, culture, methods of communication and also identifying the organisation’s strategic leadership styles. You will need to provide information on how you have gathered and sourced key information for your report.
Section 2: Analysis and recommendations to the organisation (1000-1100 words)
2a: Analysis of findings
You will need to outline your findings in this section and critically evaluate the most appropriate research and analysis techniques you have used.
2b: Recommendations
Outline and justify your current and long term recommendations for the organisation. In this section provide the organisation with some guidance on how they make a distinction between strategic management and leadership.
Section 3: Implementation (1000 words)
What leadership strategy should be adopted to facilitate implementation of the recommendations that you have presented and how might the impact of possible changes in direction cause changes in the leadership strategy? Also consider what the leadership role is in communicating the vision.
Section 4: Critical Reflection (250-300 words)
All students, particularly at postgraduate level, need to reflect critically on the learning experience. Provide a critical reflection of how you might apply your learning and knowledge from this module to your own area of study and future career aspirations.
Your portfolio must:
• Include a cover sheet with your ID number (NOT YOUR NAME), your chosen employer case study and your word count.
• Be typed in Word,
• Include page numbers,
• Be written in Arial font size 12,
• Be 1.5 spaced,
• Be submitted on Turnitin by 23.55 on 9th January 2017.
Please note that tables/diagrams/charts and the reference list are not included in the word count
Important University assessment rules for you to note:
1. Please submit an electronic copy of your assignment through Turnitin. You can access the Turnitin link through the module web.
2. The electronic version of your assignment may be used to enable checks to be made using anti-plagiarism software and approved plagiarism checking websites. Your course work will be given a zero mark if you do not submit a copy through Turnitin.
3. All work submitted after the submission deadline without an approved valid reason (see below) will be given a mark of zero. (This is not the same as a non-submission, which will be graded as AB (absent).
4. Should you submit work on time but fail the assignment, you may be offered a resit opportunity at the discretion of the PAB (Programme Assessment Board). A resit module mark will be capped at 40%.
5. The University wants you to do your best. However we know that sometimes events happen which mean that you can’t submit your coursework by the deadline – these events should be beyond your control and not easy to predict. If this happens, you can apply for an extension to your deadline for up to two weeks, or if you need longer, you can apply for a deferral, which takes you to the next assessment period (for example, to the resit period following the main Assessment Boards). You must apply before the deadline.
6. You will find information about the process and what is or is not considered to be an event beyond your control at: https://share.coventry.ac.uk/students/Registry/Pages/Deferrals-and-Extension.aspx
7. If, on the final submission date, Turnitin is not working then you must email a copy of your work to the module leader before the deadline time. This email will provide evidence that you have completed the work on time. Once Turnitin is working again you can then submit your assignment through it for marking. Consider taking screenshots of the problem you encountered as supportive evidence if needed.
8. If you think that you will need an extension or deferral please ensure that you contact the Administrative Support person or office linked to your Course to process the request. This information will normally be found in your Course Handbook. Alternatively seek advice from your Course Director if you are unsure.
NOTE: The M001CRB module teaching team cannot process or approve extension or deferral requests.
9. Students MUST keep a copy and/or an electronic file of their assignment.
As part of your study you will be involved in carrying out research and using this when writing up your coursework. It is important that you correctly acknowledge someone else’s writing or thoughts and that you do not attempt to pass this off as your own work. Doing so is known as plagiarism. It is not acceptable to copy from another source without acknowledging that it is someone else’s writing or thinking. This includes using paraphrasing as well as direct quotations. You are expected to correctly cite and reference the works of others. The Centre for Academic Writing provides documents to help you get this right. If you are unsure, please visit www.coventry.ac.uk/caw.
Assessors are able to spot cases of plagiarism. The Faculty insists that coursework is submitted through a plagiarism detection system known as Turnitin. Copying another student’s work, large sections from a book or the internet are examples of plagiarism and carry serious consequences. Please familiarise yourself with the CU Harvard Reference Style and use it correctly to avoid a case of plagiarism or cheating being brought. If you are unsure please refer to your tutor.
