Work place report

Task: This assignment is designed to enable you to apply what you have learned in this course.

Work place Report Topics:

1. Developing and managing effective teams.
2. Managing diversity in the workplace.

Within your analysis you should discuss how you would expect the organisation to be managed based on the relevant theory or textbook suggestions. You should then analyse how it is actually managed, and note the differences from your theoretical expectations. In doing so, you should seek answers to questions such as:

How does the organisation conform to the theory on the two areas identified above?

Are there differences between theory and practice?

If your answer is ‘yes’ to the preceding questions, what are the reasons for these differences?
Write relevant specific recommendations for your organisation; for example, suggestions for change, and/or further development, for each of the above two concepts.

Your choice of the organisation for this assignment is very broad. It may, for example, be:
theorganisation in which you work (the whole organisation) a department, unit or section of the organisation in which you work (if the organisation is large)
a club or society with which you are associated (for example, sports club, social club, theatre group etc) an organisation about which you can obtain enough information to analyse its management structure and process (you need not necessarily work in this organisation).

You should discuss the organisation with your course co-ordinator if you are in doubt.
You should identify your connection with the chosen organisation, for example, employee, employer, etc.
Reports will be confidential between your tutor and yourself.
Note: an organisation chart should be included in your presentation as an appendix.
Length: 2000 words. (The word count does not include the reference page or the appendices.)

This is to be an individual project. You may, for example, discuss the case with others in the class, but you must produce an individual report which is your own work. Not to do so is plagiarism which attracts heavy penalties.
Include reference to research you have done.
A minimum of 12 academic references is required, to be eligible to pass. (This means academic journals and text-books and excludes general web-sites such as consultancies’ promotional web-sites and sources like Wikipedia.)
Acknowledge sources of reference using the Harvard style (that is, Name, year etc). Provide a reference list at the end of the report. If this style of referencing is not used and/or no reference list is included, 10% will be deducted from your work.
Keep a copy of your report.
The report must be double-spaced for ease of reading and marking.
Evidence of plagiarism will cause a penalty of scoring zero for the assignment.

Setting Out Suggestion:
One way to present the information is to turn the page to ‘landscape’ and divide the page in half. On the left-hand side, set out, in point form, what the references suggest would be appropriate, and on the right-hand side, indicate what your organisation is actually doing.

Assessment of the second assignment will be based on the following criteria:
Clear explanations, analysis and discussion
Evidence of research and investigation
Actual presentation, introduction, appropriate headings and sub-headings, conclusion, reference list, correct referencing; innovation of presentation is encouraged.
You must address both topics not just one.
