Coursework Details

Select an organisation and provide a review of its operations using a wide range of sources. It is anticipated that you will cover the following areas:

  1. Use a range      of qualitative and quantitative tools as appropriate to evaluate an      organisation’s operational effectiveness which includes its processes and      a review of its financial position.
  2. Critically      evaluate the different tools and data sources in terms of their      reliability and appropriateness, justifying which ones you have used in      your review.

Students are expected to demonstrate up-to-date research on the subject, and apply examples to demonstrate your understanding of that subject. It is also important that you do not rely solely on company literature for applied examples as this is likely to put forward a view of the world that suits company management. 

(1) A ‘critical assessment’ requires you to analyse the topic in terms of both benefits and challenges associated with the topic. Therefore, your assessment should encompass several arguments and/or perspectives. 

(2) You should undertake a keyword academic literature search and aim for a ‘balanced approach’ to your writing. The evidence must come from findings which have been published in academic literature or sourced through available organisational / body documentation, with complete reference details given (using the Harvard referencing system) within the reference page. You cannot rely on anecdotal evidence. 

(3) You may also wish to discuss any possible challenges the organisation may face in implementing your recommendations. Again, arguments should be based on findings conveyed in secondary literature in terms of challenges encountered, lessons learned and benefits gained. 

(4) You need to reflect on weaknesses in the evidence reviewed and identify any research gaps in the literature which highlights the opportunity for further research or lead to recommendations for the organisation. 

(5) Remember that you must structure your submission in accordance with reporting conventions.
