As this is a group project, the report will provide a preview of the segments that each member of the group will write in their comprehensive report and class presentation for Assessment Task 2.
Date Due: Group report — week 5
Task weight: 30%
OBJECTIVE: This subject is about innovation and entrepreneurship in the Hospitality and Tourism Industry. The industry has made many changes in the last 50 years due to the advances in technology and demography.
To have a better appreciation and understanding of the Applied Creativity & Innovation model, students are required to conduct research and write a report about the changes in the hospitality industry. You may illustrate these changes by writing about your chosen hotel/theme park/tourist destination (could be a country or city or resort).
APPROACH: When you graduate and work for a company, team dynamics is an important part of your daily routine. For this reason alone, I encourage students to work in a group of 4. Each of you have a role to contribute to achieve a successful report which is well researched and written in a manner that reflects critical thinking.
As a guide, consider all the 5 elements of the Applied Creativity & Innovation model.
