SWOT ANALYSIS

Posted by kinyawa@gmail.com on August 15, 2017 in Uncategorized |

AIS201 – Assignment 2 Industry Study (SWOT Analysis) Task: Undertake a SWOT analysis of an industry sector, organisation or business which is relevant to your Bachelor of International Studies degree and your career interests or goals. Length: 1600 words (excluding appendices and references) Due: 11.59pm, Friday 1st September 2017 Weighting: 40% of your total assessment Guidelines: A SWOT analysis (strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, threats) is a useful tool for aiding understanding, strategy formulation, planning and decision-making involving many different situations affecting businesses and organisations. A SWOT analysis is widely used inplanning and evaluation for a project or business venture, in identifying areas for development, andin crisis planning. For our purposes, this SWOT analysis involves a study of the strengths and weaknesses of an industry or organisation (this involves mostly internal factors), and the opportunities and threats/challenges which the industry or organisation faces (mostly external factors). It is precisely the sort of exercise one might undertake when thinking about developing a career in a particular industry or organisation! You will have to make choices about the factors and indicators which you examine whenit comes to strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats. You should look to several factors/indicators only (perhaps 3) in each of these respects, certainly not too manyotherwise your study will be superficial and cursory. Think about what is most pertinent, butobviously you will also need to take into account what is available or accessible. Aims of this assignment: This exercise has several aims: • to help you clarify your career-related goals or interests, and assist you in building a basisfor informed decision-making and planning in this regard; • to increase your understanding of employment opportunities, trends and associated considerations involving a specific industry sector, organisation or vocation; • to introduce you to a specific analytic instrument, namely a SWOT analysis, and the role itcan serve with regard to understanding, planning, strategy formulation and decision-making; • to strengthen your written communication skills generally, and understanding ofreport writing practices in particular; and, • to improve your understanding of and ability to utilise effectively diverse sourcesof information. Planning: All students are strongly advised to discuss plans for this assignment with teaching staff. • In Week 5 there will be a library session to introduce you to ‘unconventional’ data sources (e.g. company reports) pertinent to this assignment. In Week 6 we spend some time discussing report writing during class. • To help in your understanding of a SWOT Analysis, see the discussion and templateat http://www.businessballs.com/swotanalysisfreetemplate.htm. For furtherrelevant information see http://www.quickmba.com/strategy/swot/ and http://www.mindtools.com/pages/article/newTMC_05.htm. • Check websites, annual reports and other organisational information, media releases, job advertisements, capabilities frameworks (can be quite insightful), relevant media articles, research publications, even government policy. • See what data may be available from institutions such as the Australian Bureau of Statisticsto get some basic facts and figures together. There are government websites where you canfind analyses of trends relating to various business sectors. Good materials are also available through professional and business associations, including umbrella bodies, where they look at growth predictions, key problems facing sectors, and so forth. • Consider conducting one or more ‘informational interviews’ with someone who hasworked with or currently works in the industry or organisation concerned. Some resources will be provided to assist with regard to informational interviews. Bear in mind that they can bea good way of growing your networks! • NB: Please refrain from doing your SWOT analysis on a security or defence organisation eg. Australian Federal Police, as it will be quite difficult to obtain the necessary information to complete the SWOT analysis adequately. Presentation and submission requirements: Your assignment MUST be submitted as a report. It MUST include: 1. A title page (Assignment title e.g. ‘SWOT analysis – World Vision, Australia’; your name and student id.; unit code and title; date). 2. An abstract (approx. 100 words) which is to be placed on the lower portion of your titlepage. The abstract outlines the purpose and scope of your report, your key findings or results, and conclusions. Abstracts are important tools for readers so please take extra care withwriting this. For a useful extended treatment of the subject of abstractssee http://writing.colostate.edu/guides/guide.cfm?guideid=59 (note contents on RHS). 3. Table of Contents page – lists all sections (and sub-sections) and corresponding pagenumbers. Ensure that all pages of the report are numbered (bottom of page, centred or RHS),starting from the Introduction. 4. List of Figures and Tables (where these are used). 5. Introduction. Briefly states what is being examined, identifies parameters (e.g. geographic focus in the case of a particular industry or sector), why that particular choice, andidentifies important or key sources (e.g. if using say informational interviews). 6. Body of report. This is likely to involve several sections, even sub-sections with their own titles. You might title this section ‘Results’, with sub-sections corresponding to each of the four elements of your SWOT analysis. However the structure and titling of this main body ofthe report is up to you. 7. Conclusion. This is important and needs careful consideration! Remember, you are notsimply being asked to present information, but also to provide an assessment or evaluation.Having drawn together your material and considered the evidence in each of the SWOT elements,you need to state clearly your overall conclusions. 8. Appendices (if you utilise any) 9. References. One consolidated list of all sources, in alphabetical order, with full details as required. Remember also to cite your sources in the body of the report! Inclusion of ‘Methodology’ and ‘Recommendations’ sections are NOT considered appropriate in this case. And given the short nature of this report it is NOT expected that you will need toinclude either a ‘Glossary’ or list of ‘Acronyms’. Your assignment is to be submitted online via the Dropbox in our CloudDeakin site.Marked assignments will be returned via CloudDeakin within three weeks of submission. Assessment: Marking Rubric Excellent Good Average Poor Not Shown Comprehension and understanding 25% A carefully developed study, having a clear and sustained focus, with appropriate and effective use of information.

Assessment 2: Audio-visual presentation Weight: 50% Length: 3 minutes Due date: Friday 7 October, 2016 PLEASE READ ALL DETAILS CAREFULLY The task Produce an audio-visual presentation that analyses a key development issue of your choice in the country of your choice. The issue must be one that enables an exploration of one or more of the themes explored in weeks 7 (Aid) 8 (development as freedom), 9 (participatory development), and/or 10 (alternatives to development). The AV will focus on non-economic aspects of, or approaches to development. For example, it could be about slum upgrading in Kenya, children’s rights in Thailand, human rights in Libya, the anti-dam movement in India, environmental sustainability in Brazil, indigenous land rights in Indonesia, etc. The presentation will do two key things: • Describe the issue – what is it, why does it matter? • Analyse the issue using Sen’s theory of development as freedom; critiques and/or advocacy of participatory development; or the work of a post-development theorist like Escobar. Research: You must draw on a minimum of 10 relevant, credible and substantial (meaning article or report-length) sources for this assessment. At least half of these will be academic (books, journal articles or book chapters). For this assessment, students are encouraged to have more critical, in-depth academic sources. You may also use substantial sources from other credible sources such as the World Bank or United Nations. You may use websites, if relevant and credible (for example to provide statistics), but these do not count towards the minimum required number of relevant, credible and substantial texts. The purpose of broad and deep reading is to increase your learning. Research should be referenced. Just as you have credits in a movie, you need to provide a list of your references, formatted in the same way as you would for an essay, at the end of your presentation. You can use any program you like (e.g. PowToon, Prezi, MS Powerpoint with voice-over). Learning objectives assessed: 1. Critically evaluate the ways in which colonialism, capitalism and development shape the relationship between the Global South, and Australia and other regions of the global North. (NOTE: The emphasis in this assessment is on development). 2. Identify and explain key development issues relating to Africa, Latin America and/or Asia 3. Critically reflect on the practical and ethical implications of engagement between the global North and the global South through markets and through the development industry, in relation to just and sustainable global development. 4. Communicate ideas clearly and coherently via digital video presentation. Assessment criteria • Quality of critical evaluation of development • Presentation (coherence, structure, spoken and written expression and grammar) • Digital quality • Research • Selection of texts appropriate to the topic • Selection of texts that are credible and academic • Breadth of research • Referencing • The use of other author’s ideas and evidence acknowledged appropriately (verbally or onscreen) • Proper reference list at the end of the presentation which includes every source used, and only sources directly referred to. • Consistent and complete formatting of sources Submission Submit presentations via the CloudDeakin assignment folder. The way you do this will depend on which program you use: • PowToon: Please submit a link, in a MS Word document, to your PowToon video. • Prezi: Please submit a link, in a MS Word document, to your Prezi. • Narrated powerpoint: Please submit the powerpoint file. • Movie: Please process the presentation on DeakinAir and then submit a link, in a MS Word document, to the movie on DeakinAir (as you would, for example, if you were submitting a YouTube link). All students have an account for DeakinAir, the university’s own equivalent of YouTube (even if you didn’t know it – you do have an account). Detailed instructions about how to do this are available at http://www.deakin.edu.au/students/clouddeakin/helpguides/video-and-audio/deakinair. Make sure you allow a few hours for figuring this out to be able to submit by the deadline. Feedback Each student will receive feedback, along with a grade. All assignments will be marked and returned via CloudDeakin with feedback and grade within 3 weeks of submission. Any fails are automatically double marked prior to return.

• When did it happen and what was going on?
• What were the values and norms that were in conflict?
• Describe your thoughts and feeling.
• Describe what you did. (How was the dilemma resolved or what was the outcome?)
• Rate your decision. On a scale from 1-10 how happy were you with your decision? (1 = Very unhappy 10 = Very happy) and state why you thought that.
Part 2: Analysis
In this section, you are going to analyze the ethical or moral dilemma described in Part 1 above.
Please include the following:
• Choose three of the normative ethical theories discussed in the course and use those three ethical theories to analyze the ethical or moral dilemma described in Part 1.
You should include critical thinking in your analysis.
Part C: Reflection

Have you described an ethical or moral dilemma? Make sure it is an ethical or moral dilemma and not something else. If you are unsure look at the Readings and Activities sections in Module 1 again.
Part 2
Have you applied ethical theories to analyze the event? If you are unsure look at the Readings and Activities sections in Module 2 again.
Part 3
Have you reflected on your original decision in Part 1? If you are unsure look at the Readings and Activities sections in Module 3.
Overall
Have you written clearly so that the marker can understand what you have written about? If the marker cannot understand you they will be unable to give you a very good mark. It does not matter how much you know, how good you are or how smart you are. If you do not show us that in your assignment, then we cannot give you the marks that you might deserve!
Students sometimes write as though they think the marker has ESP. We don’t! If you do not write your thoughts down, we cannot mark your thoughts. The only way we can find out what you are thinking about is through your written work!
Your written work is the medium between what you are thinking and what we believe you are thinking. Make sure that the written work is not like a mobile phone that has a weak signal.
Ask yourself the following questions:
Did you reference your work clearly?
Did you include a Bibliography?
Did you check your work against the Marking Criteria?
We use the Marking Criteria to mark your work. That is why it is called ‘Marking Criteria’. It is the criteria that we use to judge your work.
Proofreading:
If you have followed our suggestions (on the Study Desk) about when to do Parts 1, 2 and 3 you should be able to put your work aside for a few days. You will then be in a
better position to proofread it.
You should leave at least a few days between writing and proofreading. It is nearly impossible to proofread just after writing. Your mind jumps over all the mistakes. You will find some useful material about proofreading on the Study Desk.
Format for Assignment 1 and Assignment 2 Please use the following:
• Times New Roman 12
• Line space 1.5
• Left justify text
• Harvard referencing

BUSM3127 Managing Across Cultures Assessment tasks Assignment 1:

Posted by kinyawa@gmail.com on August 15, 2017 in Uncategorized |

BUSM3127 Managing Across Cultures Assessment tasks Assignment 1: Personal cultural reflection Weighting 25%
(1500 words maximum, due 17/08/2017)
the culture can be Chinese in other country culture experience~
This is an individual assignment. Prepare a 1500 word (max) reflection on the impact that culture has had on your life to date, both professionally and personally. Although there is a great deal of disagreement in the literature about intercultural communication, one thing that almost all the seminal authors from various disciplines agree on is that self-awareness is the starting point for intercultural competency. Therefore, the purpose of this piece if for you to understand your own cultural foundations and what you, personally, bring to global management before we delve more deeply into ‘difference’.
Some of you may never have written a reflective piece for assessment before, so it may be useful for you to consider the recommendations on the RMIT Learning Lab at http://emedia.rmit.edu.au/learninglab/content/reflective-journal.
Also, we recognise that you will have only spent four weeks in the course at the stage you are writing your reflection, however you have an entire lifetime to reflect upon for this piece.
Questions and concepts you might consider:
There is no set structure for your writing and as a reflective piece it can be quite subjective, however it should be presented in a professional manner and include some references to readings we have done to date or your own research. You should state what YOU think and how you have reflected on a range of sources and experiences in coming to some conclusions about how culture has affected and might continue to affect your life. Some reflective points that may assist you but which are not mandatory:
• What is your cultural background and heritage and how has it shaped the person you are?
• What exposure have you had to other cultures and sub-cultures? This could be in travel, work,
daily living, etc.
• What are your reactions to the above? Why?
• What do you think about cultural divergence/convergence? In other words are ‘we all the same underneath’, or ‘does difference matter’? Why?
• What are your limitations, prejudices, likes, dislikes when it comes to working with difference? (we all have them) Why?
• As a result of the above, how suited are you to global management? What sort of career path might appeal to you? Why?
The sources of information you use to support your reflections should be referenced in Harvard format.
Marking guidelines
In assessing your work we will attend to the following:
• evidence of self-awareness and openness to learning
• analysis of own experiences in light of research/theory • reflections and conclusions
• writing structure and flow.

This assessment provides the student with the opportunity to critically analyse the application of leadership styles in clinical practice.
Essay Topic:
Imagine your colleague says:
-It does not matter what type of leadership style is used; it has little effect on patient safety-
Identify and describe three leadership styles and critically analyse how each of these leadership styles may or may not promote patient safety.
Details
The essay requires:
A definition of patient safety.
A concise description of three leadership styles and their essential characteristics.
A discussion of the relationship between leadership and patient safety in clinical practice.
Critical analysis of how each of these three leadership styles could be used to promote patient safety in one specific instance (for example, reducing medication error, reducing the incidence of patient falls) in the hospital inpatient setting.
Student Directions:
Carefully read and understand the student directions and the Marking Criteria and Standards: Assessment 2, that are provided to assist you in preparation and submission of your Essay. Use at least five (5) recent (i.e. from 2011) peer reviewed, academic, research /evidence-based journal articles (preferably from nursing or midwifery management and leadership journals) to adequately support critical discussion points. The quality of your critical discussion will depend largely on the appropriateness and quality of references and how well these are used to provide evidence and support for that discussion.
