Summer Reassessment


Assignment 1 Individual Essay

You are required to use your own organisation or a recent employer to explore one of the
strategy ‘debates’ (paradoxes) covered in class.

In order to complete the assignment students will need to research the organisation and
use particular critical incidents in the life of the organisation to illustrate the debate and,
hopefully, yield insights into both the ‘theory’ and the organisation itself. If exceptional
circumstances do not permit students to do this, a case study will be provided which can
be used as a basis for your assignment. This assessment is primarily concerned with
learning outcomes d) and e), though given the interdependent nature of the subject, other
outcomes may be assessed through it.

Note: you must engage with the relevant academic theory and recent literature concerned
with your chosen strategy debate – you will be assessed on this. Ensure to be discursive
rather than descriptive. Students are expected to identify their sources in written
assessments and to follow the Harvard style for citations and referencing.

The report should not exceed 3,000 words, excluding appendices

Report submission deadline: Friday 15th August 2008

Assignment 2 Case study based examination - Web Reservations International (WRI)

An open-book case study based examination. The examination allows individual
assessment in a time/place-controlled situation. The exam will assess student’s ability to
use strategic concepts and models to analyse an organisational situation - primarily
learning outcomes a), b) and c). ‘Illustrative’ style questions (where students are required
to use the case to illustrate and/or evaluate some aspect of relevant literature) may also be
included. The case study of Web Reservations International is included below (6 pages).
You should ensure that you are thoroughly familiar with the case and should carry out a
critical assessment and interpretation of it using relevant models and tools in advance of
the exam.

Examination date: to be published as part of the re-sit exam timetable
