Assessment 2: Major Organisation Behaviour
The purpose of this assessment is to allow students take on a management perspective to analyse organisational behaviour and leadership and propose recommendations with the aim of improving the situation. This project seeks to create a case study of an organization that requires a change intervention.
Students will be required to choose an organisation that they are familiar with and analyse it using relevant organisational behaviour and leadership theories or frameworks to identify areas where improvements need to be made.
The organisational change project covers the following:
1. An introduction to the organisation.
2. Description and analysis of the organisational behaviour or leadership issue
3. Literature review – overview of application theories to the identified issue
4. Evaluation of possible alternative solutions required to improve the situation.
5. Recommendations of the most suitable strategies.

General Notes for Referencing
References are assessed for their quality. You should draw on quality academic sources, such as books, chapters from edited books, journals etc. Your textbook can be used as a reference, but not the lecturer notes. We want to see evidence that you can conduct your own research. Also, in order to help markers, determine students’ understanding of the work they cite, all in-text references (not just direct quotes) must include the specific page number/s if shown in the original.
