PLEASE FOLLOW THIS FILE WHILE MAKING ASSESSMENT
This is an individual, written assessment, to be completed in report format. You are required to write around 3,000 words (+/- 10%), excluding title page, preliminaries, tables, figures, reference list and appendices. The report requires in-text referencing and a full reference list in APA style, with evidence that you have critically read and integrated a minimum of 20 suitable scholarly references.
The purpose of this assessment is to present the final report of the Professional Project you proposed in Assignment 1. This report should build upon both components of your Assessment 1 and it should be developed with the help of the tutor/co-ordinator feedback.
In order to successfully complete Assessment 2, you are required to carry out the investigation you have proposed in Assessment 1 and produce a professional research report that shows that you have followed through from finding a research question to answering that question and developing recommendations that arise from your findings. The report will follow the typical structure of a research report and will need to include the following:
• Project title
• Introduction (which must include some justification of your topic and your projects aim and research question(s))
• Critical literature review
• A detailed presentation of how you carried out your project (commensurate with a Methods chapter)
• Findings from your secondary data analysis
• Discussion of findings in light of your previously reviewed literature
• Conclusion, including recommendations and limitations
Assessment criteria (click here for a detailed marking rubric):
• Title, background, definitions
• Justification, aim and objectives/research questions
• Quality and coherence of introduction and conclusion
• Critical literature review
• Methods
• Findings and analysis
• Discussion
• Written communication
• Quality and appropriateness of references, and accuracy of referencing

5 Discussion .
• In the Discussion, you have to REFERENCE the same material as you had in your LR!
• Discussions without any references will receive fail grades in the marking rubric
• Address everything that is in your aim and objectives/RQs
• Compare all your main findings to the literature (see table later in this lecture)
6 Conclusion
6.1 Addressing aims and research questions
6.2 Limitations
6.3 Recommendations
• This should be a separate sub-section of the Conclusion
• It should explicitly and clearly point out recommendations to Practitioners and Researchers that derive from your project
• Company reports and academic articles contain limitations – this sub-section is therefore important for the workplace and academia:
– Company reports focus mostly on ‘Recommendations for the Company’
– Academic articles focus mostly on ‘Areas of Further Research’ or ‘Recommendations for Research’
• Demonstrates that you understand the wider value of your project and what should be done next
6.4 Reference.
USE THIS DATA FOR THE ASSESSMENT as it was assessment 1 and use tables and data were necessary and use in text referencing
FIELD OF RESEARCH
Culture diversity has played a significant role over the period, at many workplaces among all the organisation across the globe. Diversity can bring all the talents united at a workplace together when all of them are focusing on a common goal using their different set of skills. My background is in management and I feel diversity had played and major role at my workplace. However, there are various key positive attributes which can build a diverse workforce such as increase productivity, wider range of skills, increase innovation.
SECONDARY DATA
USE OTHER SECONDARY DATA APART FROM THIS ALSO NOT ONLY THESE TWO POINTS
My source of data will be from Australian humans rights commission which explains how diversity has impact on Australian workforce with statistical data available in (https://www.humanrights.gov.au/about/news/speeches/cultural-diversity-workplace-0). Apart from that world economic forum will provide detail information about diversity driving the economics (https://www.weforum.org/agenda/2018/07/cultural-diversity-drive-economies-india-asia/). All the data used are inter related as their focus is on cultural diversity, how it is managed as well as the mechanism for innovation along with the statistical data of cultural diversity in Australia.
RESEARCH QUESTION
The study focuses on how diversity plays a vital role in a growing business sector.
1- How culture diversity can improve productivity and innovativeness in an organisation?
2- What are the difficulties and advantages related with an assorted workforce and by what means would managers be able to utilize their administration to amplify the capability of decent variety in the association?
Writing up findings – QUANT
1 - present the descriptive results
KEY findings need to be explained ALSO IN THE TEXT
2 - present the more advanced analysis
If you are presenting statistics in writing, even simple things like means, standard deviations, correlations, look up how to present them in APA style. Organising findings – QUAL
1 - present the descriptive results
2 - present the more advanced analysis
That includes a description of the themes – Tables are useful!
Include excerpts from your data to ILLUSTRATE your analysis.
Do NOT present only your data but only present it to ILLUSTRATE the interpretations and analysis you made.
Data excerpts must be referenced!
Focus on the themes, particularly those that emerge strongly from the data (i.e. themes that apply to most/all of your observations)
Do NOT just repeat the data in the form of a LR… (next slide)
Don’t forget…
• … that your findings need to address your RQs!
• If your findings do NOT relate to your RQs, now is the time to make changes, e.g. by re-wording the RQs…
• Tip: keep your RQ(s) printed next to you when you write your report and always make sure that what you write relates to the RQ(s)!
Recommendations
• This should be a separate sub-section of the Conclusion
• It should explicitly and clearly point out recommendations to Practitioners and Researchers that derive from your project
• Company reports and academic articles contain limitations – this sub-section is therefore important for the workplace and academia:
– Company reports focus mostly on ‘Recommendations for the Company’
– Academic articles focus mostly on ‘Areas of Further Research’ or ‘Recommendations for Research’
• Demonstrates that you understand the wider value of your project and what should be done next
