INSTRUCTIONS:

PART 1

Students will be allocated a company from the Company Allocation spreadsheet in Assessment 2 on vUWS. You are appointed as a business consultant recruited by the company given to you in week 6. – Your role is to deliver the findings from your research about the topic allocated to you and make recommendations for your client. – Content for the presentation and the written document will be drawn from the relevant theories and aspects of enterprise leadership that are assigned from the topics covered in weeks 6,7 & 9. – Research for the presentation will need to encompass the use of business databases, refereed articles, and most importantly current media. – A minimum of 8 scholarly and non-scholarly references is required for this assessment. Students should refer to the readings and resources list in vUWS and access the reading material for the topic they choose. Students are required to research the company they choose and ensure they are providing useful and accurate sources to justify their argument.

Students are required to act as enterprise leaders and therefore the issues you identify should be based on elements you have identified from the research. The recommendations should not be based on what the company is already doing but rather what you, as enterprise leaders, think the company can do better.

In addition to the subject readings, students must use peer-reviewed articles, business databases and relevant media sources. Useful Information: Company annual reports should not be seen as the sole source of information; your research should use other sources such as Factiva (e.g. articles from the [Australian] Financial Review) and IBIS (which provides reports on companies) - both of which are available through e-resources on the WSU Library site. Other sources such as the ASX company information and announcements database, Who’s Who in Australia, Who’s Who in Business in Australia, etc. could be useful for specific presentation topics.

PART 2

  1. Individual written report summary component (700 words)

A minimum of 8 scholarly and non-scholarly references is required for this assessment. Students should refer to the readings and resources list in vUWS and access the reading material for the topic they choose. Students are required to research the company they are allocated and ensure they are providing useful and accurate sources to justify their argument.

  1. Self-reflection component (300 words)

The purpose of this assessment is two-fold. Firstly, it allows you to reflect on your experience working as a consultant. Secondly, this reflection allows you to think about the elements of making verbal presentations to larger audiences and the development of public speaking skills. The aim of reflection is to help you gain insight into your strengths and weaknesses in a professional environment. To complete your reflection please do the following: – Your reflection starts with an awareness of the learning situation or event. This awareness might trigger some emotional reaction (positive or negative) or thoughts about the learning event. – The second stage of the process is to undertake a critical analysis. This involves critically analysing the relevant knowledge and experience you have as well as how you can apply this new knowledge. Self-awareness becomes the focus of this stage. – The third stage relates to how this changed perspective has changed your emotional, cognitive (thoughts) and behaviour as a result of your critical analysis. The main objective of a reflective journal is to ’translate theory into practical action, that is, a praxis’ (Loo & Thorpe2002, p.135).

Please note: your individual reflection is included in your written report summary - please refer to the templates below.
