Assessment Component
Assessment Weighting: 40 per cent of total module mark
COMPONENT B (40% of the module): 1500 word individual report which critically evaluates the following question:
Although some might suggest that post-bureaucratic and virtual organisations inspired by Human Relations approaches are becoming the ‘future’ of organising, in fact, it is more likely that contemporary society will be even more influenced by classical approaches to management. Critically evaluate this statement, and consider some of the key lessons that organisations in the future could take forward. The report should be divided into appropriate sections and critically discuss and apply academic theory. It will also highlight examples from empirical research and real-world examples to support the debate presented. A range of academic references should be drawn on to evidence your report. Your should conform to the conventions of academic writing and be fully referenced in UWE Harvard style. Suggested structure: Introduction (approx. 10-15%) Outline the scope of your report and the area you’ve chosen to focus on. Signpost the broad critical debates that you’ve identified in your research. Treat this like an abstract – tell the reader exactly what you will include and conclude, so that they know what to expect. Do you agree or disagree with the statement in the question? Main body (approx. 65-70%) Divided into appropriate sections – likely arguing both for and against the first question to form a balanced argument. Should avoid simply describing each approach and seek to critique them using the literature and by comparing and contrasting their principle differences – this is critical evaluation. Additional nuance to the discussion should be provided by considering if any provide the ‘one best way’ of organising. Support this discussion with evidence from the research and examples from real world organisations where possible, but remember that the focus of the piece is on academic sources. Discussion and Conclusion (approx. 20-25%) Give a thoughtful and considered evaluation of the most important points that have been presented. Link back to the title and what you outline in your introduction, and make sure that you have a solid answer to the question – agree / disagree / to some extent? Whatever it is, make sure that you justify your response and relate back to the second part of the question. Do not simply recap what you’ve said in your report. Reference List Only include sources that you’ve referenced within your assignment. This assessment assesses the following modular learning outcomes: Contextualise the purpose and process of Management in contemporary contexts (A & B) Have a thorough understanding of and organisations, and an overview of the main disciplines & functions of business (B).
