Assessment brief

Your report should concentrate on providing valid information that contributes to answering the following questions.
1. What is the history of the enterprise?
2. In what markets does the organisation operate and what is the scope of its operations?
3. Using both a descriptive narrative and a supporting diagram to illustrate your answer, what are the characteristics of the organisation’s supply chain and logistical operational activity?

You are expected to conduct your own research to help you answer these questions.

As with all Kaplan assessments, your Reference List must be formatted strictly to the Harvard style.

Assessment Information
Your reference material may be in the form of texts, academic journals, business journals and reports, organisational websites and reports, newspapers, magazine articles and even transcripts of television and radio interviews and investigations.
On-line sources of information that have no established academic reliability such as Wikipedia, Slideshare, Business balls etc. are to be avoided.
When writing a formal business report, your submission must conform to the conventions that underpin the report structure. Every report should have the following sections:
• Title page
• Table of contents
• Executive summary
• Introduction
• Discussion
• Conclusion
• Recommendations (if appropriate)
• References
• Appendices
Even though this assignment is not due until Week 7 you are encouraged to commence your reading about the two organisations as soon as Week 1. You can then decide early on which enterprise you will investigate and then use your lectures, tutorials and other reading to help you start to compile your report.
You are also advised to collaborate closely with your lecturer to seek advice on how to progress your research, analyse the enterprise and structure your report. This is not an assignment you can successfully complete at the last minute. It requires a disciplined approach over the first seven weeks of the trimester and this includes availing yourself of the opportunity to consult your lecturer in the Study Week (Week 6).
