Global Management Case-Study

Coursework Requirement:   GMiC Assignment 2 –
Global Management Case-Study  
LEARNING OUTCOMES   This assignment assesses the following learning outcomes:   1.       Understand the complexity surrounding the notion of responsible global management and being           a global manager. 3.       Understand the possibilities and new opportunities that a widening global perspective affords        the manager, both for their organisation and their own capabilities. 5.       Critically evaluate a wide range of organisational management practices that might require adaptation in the face of global change, both conceptually and practically. 6.       Offer practical and higher level creative suggestions that develop management practice for           organisational managers facing global pressure for change.     Question 1   Using your Manifesto what critical guidance would you offer James, as Chairman, in order to critically develop him to lead the Board of a growing global organisation? You will need to refer to the case-study as part of your answer, highlighting some examples.   Question 2   Using your Manifesto what critical reflections should Stefan Ellis-Hao consider in order to critically review his management practice if he was to seek a new position with another global organisation? You will need to refer to the case-study as part of your answer, highlighting some examples.     Your answer should be in an assignment format.   Tutor referral will apply to this assessment component.  Tutor – referred work must be resubmitted one week after notification.     The work will be assessed in three areas:   Thematic connections: The work will clearly demonstrate the building of a coherent argument drawn from the semi-structured content from Plato’s Café engagement and Grounded Theory research. Description should be avoided, instead critical evaluation of the ‘key concerns’ that relate to the notion of a ‘global manager’ and her/his context is preferred.   Evidenced argumentation: Assignments will give strong argued reasoning for the points raised. They will demonstrate wider reading and cite examples from the Plato’s Café engagement and Grounded Theory in support. A wide variety of academic materials is recommended including textbooks, journal articles and reliable websites all of which should be accurately referenced. Indicative reading lists are available in the handbook but original, relevant research will be recognised.     Structured insights: There will be an appropriate level of coherency within arguments where the semi-structured ideas have been brought together to offer key concerns. Appropriate assignment format. Please make an appointment with the Academic Skills Tutors for any additional help needed with assignment writing and referencing.   Pay close attention to the Assessment and Grading Criteria at the end of this document. These criteria will be used to provide feedback on your marked assignment.   ­­­­­­­­­­­­­

Thematic connections: The work will clearly demonstrate the building of a coherent argument drawn from the semi-structured content from Plato’s Café engagement and Grounded Theory research. Description should be avoided, instead critical evaluation of the ‘key concerns’ that relate to the notion of a ‘global manager’ and her/his context is preferred.   Limited or no meaningful arguments offered from engagement or research demonstrating a lack of understanding. Work is descriptive. Basic key concerns and commentary are offered demonstrating some unique understanding. Work is descriptive. The key concerns are offered with some meaningful development but the more critical nature of these is not appreciated. Work is descriptive with an attempt at critical evaluation. A good development of key concerns from engagement and research and appreciation of their complex nature. The work is critically evaluative Excellent development of key concerns and full critical evaluation of these. Detailed discussion and examples to support accurate conclusions.
Evidenced argumentation: Assignments will give strong argued reasoning for the points raised. They will demonstrate wider reading and cite examples from the Plato’s Café engagement and Grounded Theory in support. A wide variety of academic materials is recommended including textbooks, journal articles and reliable websites all of which should be accurately referenced. Indicative reading lists are available in the handbook but original, relevant research will be recognised.     Reliance on lecture notes and lack of uniquely sourced academic evidence to support the key concerns and arguments. Research has been undertaken and arguments offered but are limited in breadth. Mainly reliant on textbooks/ internet sites. Research and arguments supported by journal articles, textbooks, previous learning and internet sites recommended on the reading list. Research and arguments are academically based and appropriate examples used. A limited amount of original material included. Extensive reading and original research to support the arguments. Numerous relevant and academic examples researched to support the discussion,
Structured insights: There will be an appropriate level of coherency within arguments where the semi-structured ideas have been brought together to offer key concerns. Appropriate assignment format. Please make an appointment with the Academic Skills Tutors for any additional help needed with assignment writing and referencing.   Weak structure and not in assignment format. Poor coherency. Poor presentation, and limited critical development and referencing not using the recommended/consistent system. Assignment format is used but not effectively as possible.
