  3. In your own words, identify and discuss the research methodology and research methods the authors uses to examine the main issue(s) in this article (150 words+/- 10% = 2 marks).
  4. In your own words, identify and discuss the main findings and/or conclusions of this article (150 words+/- 10% = 2 marks).

Remember to include a reference list that starts on anewpage.

*Writing about an idea in your own words is mainly paraphrasing.To paraphrase is to provide a detailed restatement of an idea. Paraphrasing indicates you understand an idea put by another author so well you can paraphrase it into your own words. Paraphrasing is a legitimate way to borrow an idea so long as you cite and reference the source from which you borrowed it (seeowl.english.purdue.edu/owl/owlprint/619/).

This assessment provides an opportunity for you to learn to:

  • research and compare various sources of information about management (LO1)
  • compare and contrast the work of influential management thinkers and researchers (LO2)
  • express opinions on management issues with clarity, from both personal and more objective positions that are backed up with sound evidence and analysis (LO4)
  • apply management theory in order to analyse management dilemmas and problems, and provide recommendations for action (LO5)
  • present academic writing (academic literacy and numeracy)
  • use APA6th citation and referencing (academic literacy and numeracy).

Of the organization is not able to apply the foreseen policies, procedures or trains its employees to be adaptive to the new changes, gradually it will outdate the organization standards.
