This assessment is designed for you to experience the challenges that managers face in thinking strategically, conceptually and analytically to create effective organisations and productive work environments. It is in two parts and this is Part A of Assessment 3.
Part A is designed to focus your thinking on more strategic issues from modules five and six in relation to management, people and teams, whilst requiring you to integrate the underlying principles discussed in earlier modules. It is in essence your approach and philosophy to future proofing your organisation (or one you know well).
Part B requires you to critique the Part A video of another student based on your knowledge of the underlying principles.
You are to prepare a 5- 10-minute video presentation on your approach to managing your organisation into the future. Your chosen organisation may be your current or recant employer or one with which you are very familiar.
The focus of your presentation will be on the topics discussed in modules five and six. For example:
• Creating an ethical organisation
• Leveraging culture and diversity
• Competitive advantage through strategic people management
• Fostering innovation
It is best to address genuine challenges the organisation faces in these areas, so discuss other ideas you have with your facilitator. You may focus on any one of the topics listed above and use that as the core discussion around which you could discuss the other three.
Your presentation must discuss the challenges faced, your vision or strategic objectives and importantly, your approach to managing the required strategies and actions.
Whilst you will be focusing on the topics from modules five and six, it is expected that you will bring into consideration any relevant topics from other modules.
You must also include lessons you have learnt throughout this subject from activities and previous assessments such as your group assessment. For example, if your chosen topic was about leveraging culture and diversity, you could identify how this was addressed in your assessment group and any learnings you can transfer to your workplace challenge.
Presentations must be between 5 to 10 minutes and you are to talk direct to the camera, that is, no presentation slides are required. You may refer to notes as a prompt but are not to read them verbatim. In some respects, this may be like a job interview for a senior management role, so you need to convince the audience that you are capable of addressing and managing the issues faced.
NOTE: You must provide a list of references to support your presentation. This can be provided in a separate document and uploaded via the assessment 3 Part A portal.
Your presentation will be assessed and graded by the facilitator against the following criteria:
1. Knowledge and understanding of theoretical models
2. Appropriate application of theory to the challenges faced
3. Effective presentation skills – both verbal and non-verbal
4. Use of supporting research
The learning rubric below shows the weighting and description for each of these requirements.
Confidentiality: As your presentation will be viewed by another student for completion of Part B of this assessment, if you have concerns over sensitive company information a fictitious company name may be used. If you have further concerns, please discuss these with your facilitator.
The recording of your presentation needs to be of a reasonable quality. Using your mobile/cell phone or computer would suffice.
Creating your video presentation:
• Create a short video presentation (Length: 5-10 minutes)
• Be specific and clear as you will be assessed on originality and authenticity.
• Your presentation must be in a video format (mp4, MOV, etc.) for uploading into Blackboard (refer to the link below).

Uploading your video presentation:
• Detail instructions on compressing (if necessary) and uploading your video presentation is available at: https://laureate-
• After uploading your video presentation for grading, retain a copy in a safe place as you will be required to upload a second copy into an online group forum. See instructions below.
2) Second submission – for peer review
The learning facilitator will allocate students to a specific online group forum for Assessment 3. This will be a closed forum only accessible between the enrolled student pair and the facilitator. Each student will upload a copy of their final video presentation from Assessment 3 Part A into their assigned online group and in doing so, will gain access to another student’s presentation to review and complete Assessment 3 Part B. This is a compulsory second online submission process that is necessary to finalise all requirements for Assessment 3.
