The assessment suite in this subject is designed to provide students with a framework to understand organisational behavior and the dynamics of the business environment. The assessment suite aims to equip students with the necessary skills to understand the constraints managers and emerging leaders face in developing strategies to leverage advantages and overcome constraints and barriers in organisations.
Students will will create a SWOT Analysis on themselves and reflect on their current status as a manager. Students will then comment on their fit with the organisation identified in Assessment One.: Chosen Company is Wesfarmers. Please read the attached assignment one.
The exact form of the report will depend on the additional research the student will undertake; students should aim for the demonstration of deep learning, founded on reflection, rather than on getting any aspect of the brief ‘right.’
