Component 1: COURSEWORK
Assessment weighting 60%
(assesses all learning outcomes )
Students will submit an individual report (4,000-5,000 words) which is the culmination of a consultancy project with suggestions for action. Students must justify their approach to the management of the project and data collection and take into account corporate accountability, ethics and professionalism and any organisational constraints in developing their conclusions and recommendations.
Proposed template for the report (but you must make your report specific to your case study organisation and your findings):
Introduction (to report)
Situational Analysis of Case Study Organisation showing appropriate, logical analysis of secondary data including industry trends and leading to Problem Identification – a raising of the various issues identified by the situational analysis. Your primary data collection could go here to support the problem identification with (for example) customer or stakeholder views/input.
Possibilities (Options) – showing awareness that there are a number of possible approaches. This section would include an assessment of the various approaches and justification for the approach chosen. Students should choose an appropriate model/theory (CBA, Business Case, SAF) to assess the options. This section could also include primary data, showing how it contributed to the selection of the appropriate project. Risk Assessment and Stakeholder Analysis may also feature here as tools to justify the approach taken.
Specific Project – Explanation of the overall project including the Detailed Plan of Action (use of appropriate tools or the principles of the appropriate tools – WBS, CPA, Gantt chart, Resource Planning charts). This section would include aim and objectives, risk assessment, stakeholder analysis, and a detailed plan of action to enable the organisation to understand exactly what action is required.
