The Challenges of My First Job at Asacura International. We are looking for you to research the management literature to help Julie deal with Harry’s behaviour and learn how to make an impact in her team…while keeping her job.
The purpose of this assessment is:
1. To ensure that you have the research and referencing skills to succeed in your assessment works.
2. To provide you with the opportunity to critically analyse issues that impact on effective management. (Remember, one of the strengths of organisational behaviour is that it helps your ability to thinking about topics scientifically, and build up a case based on evidence rather than personal opinion.)
3. To enhance your ability to develop solutions to problems drawing upon the research literature.
Details (please read carefully)
Using the following two (2) steps, outlined below, prepare a short report that addresses the issues raised in the case study, and provide a recommendation.
Do not answer the case study questions individually. Use them as a guide. Your analysis should extend beyond the guide questions when analysing the case facts and preparing your report.
Reports that are presented using a simple question and answer format will not earn high marks.
Select a minimum of ten (10) peer reviewed journal articles dealing with topics or issues raised in the case study.
(For assistance use Google Scholar directly (to find Google Scholar, Google “Google Scholar”).
Prepare a report in short format and follow the instructions outlined in the sections below. Use headings and sub-headings as appropriate. Your report must include in-text referencing and a correctly-cited list of all references used in the report and ordered alphabetically by surname of first author, in accordance with the Harvard style of referencing (AGPSM). I would encourage you to learn to use Endnote or another form of electronic software program such as Mendeley to do your referencing. Learn now, and it will help you throughout your studies…in fact every hour you spend learning it will save you many hours later.
The body of your report can be structured in three (3) sections.
In Section 1 of your report, begin with your introduction. You should then summarise in your own words the main points of each paper selected.
For example, ask yourself questions such as:
• does the paper review studies or describe a study that is relevant to the case?
• does it offer any framework for helping us understand the motivations and emotions of the workforce and the values and attitudes of management?
• how does the paper help us to analyse the case and develop solutions to the problem?
(approx 400 words)
In the next part of your report, you should include discussion and analysis of the case. You should draw upon the journal articles, papers and other support references to analyse the problems that you have found in the case study, and link theories to practice. (This is your analysis section of the paper: Who-What-Where-When-Why.)
(approx 1300 words)
In the third section of your report, develop a range of options and propose a recommendation for overcoming the problems identified in your analysis. Your options should be supported by articles you have reviewed, but you may also cite other relevant articles and books.
This section should finish with your conclusion (1200 words)..
It is suggested that you critically analyse the information rather than jump to conclusions when preparing your report. When reviewing your assignment before submission, you should refer to the Assessment criteria matrix as a check on how well the report has been prepared.
The better quality reports will have used more than just the ten (10) required articles.
