Type of Collaboration Group work Style and format See 'Additional Assessment Information'. Assessment submission Online via Moodle Assessment return Report and presentation marks will be available one week after all

 

presentations are finished. This assessment has two parts: Presentation (worth 10%) and Report (worth 20%).

 

Report: Each group needs to select an organisation they are familiar with, and write a report on this

 

organisation (if the team is facing difficulties obtaining information, an alternate organisation can be

 

chosen only after receiving a written approval from the subject coordinator). Each frame has a number

 

of questions: these should be answered, discussed, explained and substantiated through appropriate

 

theory reference and analysis clearly demonstrated in the report with appropriate Harvard Style

 

citations. In addition to addressing the questions, students are expected to add an introduction,

 

recommendations and conclusion. (See the marking criteria for all details). Ask your tutor questions

 

about your group assignment. This should focus mainly on topics covered in the lecture. You should

 

not ask your tutor to do a ?pre-review? of your assignment to see if it is ?going well? or is

 

on the right track. However you may discuss your report in general terms.

 

The report must address all 4 frames of the chosen organisation to ensure the report answers the

 

following items for each frame:

 

Structural Frame: 1. Discuss its current structure. 2. If structural change is required, what type of

 

structure should be introduced? If structural change is not needed, what is it about the current

 

structure that fits the organisation?s circumstances? 3. Analyse the complexity of the structure. 4. How

 

are activities coordinated? Identify the coordination mechanisms in use. You must use appropriate

 

theories to substantiate these answers.

 

Human Resource Frame: 1.How do people feel about their work? What seems to motivate them

 

(intrinsic factors e.g. achievement, recognition for work well done and responsibility; and or extrinsic

 

factors e.g. working conditions and company policies)? 2. Explain any strategies in your chosen

 

organisation to empower and /or promote diversity. 3. What could be the relationship between

 

managers and non managerial employees (e.g. cooperative, neutral, cold, hostile)? 4. What 1 opportunities to participate are provided for employees? What efforts, if any, are made to get

 

employees to cooperate with one another? Use appropriate theories to substantiate your

 

answers. Example: Mary Parker Follett (1918), Elton Mayo (1933, 1945) maintained that workers

 

have rights beyond a paycheck; that people?s skills, attitudes, energy, and commitment are vital

 

resources and powerful competitive advantage that can make or break a company. A good fit benefits

 

both as individuals find meaningful and satisfying work, and organisations get the talent and energy

 

they need to succeed. As an example of application of theory: Nucor, the world?s largest recycler,

 

turns scrap metal into steel, with highly charged and engaged employees empowered with a mindset

 

of owner-operator motivation that soars to 387% return to shareholders over the past five years

 

soundly bests almost all other companies in the S & P 500-stock index (Byrnes and Arndt, 2006,

 

p.58). On the other hand, Apple?s lean and mean management concept, exploited the Chinese

 

employees in China in 2012 with long hours, low pay, and intense pressure to ramp-up production

 

triggered strikes and a worker riot that shut one plant down for a day. Apple?s products were

 

cutting-edge, but its people management evoked centuries-old images of sacrificing people for profits

 

and reinforced popular stereotypes of bosses as hearless and insensitive (Amar, 2004).

 

Political Frame: What are the recognised power relationships in your chosen organisation? Identify the various

 

bases of formal and informal power in your the selected organisation. 2. What are the differences between

 

authority and power? State any differences between authority and power in your chosen organisation.3.

 

Determine channels of possible informal communication. 4. What are the various ecosystems (systems of

 

external environmental agents within which an organization functions and with which it interacts; in other words,

 

what are the external players which influence the functions of the organization) associated with the organisation?

 

5. Identify the sources (or potential sources) of conflict in your chosen organisation. Explain whether conflict

 

works against or in favour of your chosen organisation. Use appropriate theories to substantiate your

 

answers. Symbolic Frame: 1. Analyse the organisation through the symbolic lens (e.g. organisational process

 

as theatre). 2. What are the organisation's most potent symbols? What do they seem to represent? 3.

 

Where does impression management occur within the organisation? Is there any evidence of

 

impression management by the organisation itself, in relation to its external stakeholders?

 

4. Add a brief recommendation for each frame based your analysis and findings. Please ensure you

 

are link your recommendation to your analysis. Use appropriate theories to substantiate your

 

answers.

 

Presentation: Groups are expected to communicate the content of their report in an oral

 

presentation. The presentation should clearly introduce the organisation of your choice and how your

 

group has analysed each of the 4 frames. In the presentation, your team is also expected to engage

 

the audience with interactive activities. The duration of the presentation will be around 20-30 mins,

 

plus 15 mins for Q&A (You are free to integrate Q&A into the presentation). Students should provide a

 

session plan to the tutor before the presentation; also give your tutor a copy of any other presentation

 

aids. The presentation and the report will be marked as a group mark.

 

This is a group exercise to which all students are expected to contribute in a collaborative manner to

 

assist the structure and flow of the presentation. Each team member must present content, not just

 

introduction and conclusion. Groups should keep a record of the minutes of team meetings. In the

 

event of a conflict, detailed minutes and any other correspondence including emails will be taken into

 

consideration for conflict resolution and fair distribution of team marks. If conflict arises, the group

 

must consult with tutor to seek advice on solution. In the event no solution is found, the group must

 

communicate issues to the lecturer prior to submission and presentation. Appeals of marks will not be

 

considered if the above steps have not been appropriately followed.

 

A signed statement by all team members of the group is to be appended with the submission of the

 

group report asserting equal individual contribution.

 

In addition:

 

INDIVIDUAL GROUP MEMBERS MUST PREPARE AND SUBMIT THE

 

FOLLOWING TO THEIR TUTOR ON DAY OF THEIR PRESENTATION:

 

Individuals must provide a folder with evidence asserting the individual's contribution to the

 

completion of the group project. Each piece of evidence of contribution should be dated, and placed in

 

the folder in chronological order. At a minimum your folder must contain:

 

· A typed two page reflective summary. This should reflect on the learning process that you

 

have undergone in doing this assignment. Points addressed should include what you felt you

 

did well, and what you would do differently next time. 2 Minutes you took of all group meetings that you attended.

 

10 specimens of development work that demonstrate the process you have gone through in

 

making a contribution to your group?s partnership agreement and report. These specimens

 

should not include printed material from web sites or photocopied reference material. Rather

 

they should be working papers of your individual work in progress and analysis. Development

 

work must be in English and may be hand written.

 

· A diary summary of time contributed to the project.

 

**Failure to submit evidence of individual contribution may result in a lower individual mark

 

from group mark.**
