This assessment task gives students the opportunity to enhance their research, analysis, critical thinking and written communication skills, particularly in the areas of developing argument in the context of business report writing.
You are required to write a BUSINESS REPORT. Students are expected to engage in extensive research within the academic literature (peer reviewed journals) relevant to the task and evidence your argument from scholarly sources as well as other relevant reference material.
The task is to write a business report on a contemporary news story about an organisation
This is the news story that is the focus of your report.
You are to write a business report
1. providing a brief summary of the news story;
2. identifying the key human resource issues raised and discussing them in
relation relevant concepts, frameworks and theories from the Unit; and
3. making recommendations for the future.
This assessment item involves researching your assigned topic to enhance your understanding of the relevant human resource issues and utilisation of academic literature. The prescribed textbook for the Unit MUST be cited. You will be expected to present information and evidence from, and cite, relevant academic peer reviewed journal articles. You must undertake research more broadly than articles posted on Moodle. The MINIMUM TO PASS this criterion [10/20] is the textbook (must draw on two chapters), plus six (6) relevant academic peer reviewed journal articles.
A reference list is compulsory and it MUST be prepared according to the CQU APA Referencing Guide. DO NOT include a bibliography.
The quality and number of citations will demonstrate the breadth and depth of the literature used to formulate your argument. It is not only about the number of references, but also it is about the relevance and quality of the articles, and then how you use the content from your research. You can cite the textbook, and any of your journal articles more than once as appropriate to develop your argument.
Keep your key research (from 2011 onwards), unless you are using the primary source articles of theories and/or models. You may need to have additional material from pre 2011 to fully explore the topic and obtain material. You also will need to obtain material from appropriate sources that evidences the practical application of your discussion.
Your marker is interested in the argument and critical analysis that you have developed from YOUR review of the literature and how well you use the literature to respond to the topic. There should be minimal use, if any, of direct quotes, and you should be paraphrasing. The in text referencing must be appropriate and sufficient.
