Instructions on Assessment:

Part 1a: Critical Analysis - Critique (c. 1200 words)

According to Fleming (2017: p. 698), “The politics of work is now closely interwoven with other social justice concerns related to ‘life’ more generally”.

Drawing on Fleming (2017) and theories and concepts you have learned in this module, critically analyse this statement. Your analysis should draw attention to how transformations in management and organisation have altered the meaning and experience of work within organisations, and relate these changes to broader societal concerns such as wellbeing, economic and social inequality, and/or sustainability. Your analysis should demonstrate your ability to make critical connections across topics in the module in order to evaluate contemporary organisational practices and their consequences. You should use examples presented in lectures, seminars and/or reading list resources to support your points.

Additional Guidelines for Part 1a:

  • Your critical analysis must advance an argument which is supported by theories, concepts and examples. Support for how to develop an academic argument is available on Blackboard.
  • Your academic sources should primarily be drawn from the module reading list.
  • Part 1a of your assignment should be approximately 1200 words in length. The word count is necessarily restrictive. Focus on refining your argument and make sure your writing is concise.

Part 1b: Critical Analysis – Case Example (c. 1200 words)

Fleming (2017: p. 705) goes on to suggest that, “the advocates of Uberization claim it is the future, no matter what. How employees, organizations and scholars respond to this proclamation will shape the politics of work to come”.  

Identify a case organisation that HAS NOT been discussed in lectures or seminars that you feel represents and embodies a more positive alternative vision of management, work and organisation than those indicated in Part 1a. Drawing on theories and concepts from the module, and examples specific to your chosen case, critically analyse their approach to management and organisation. Obtain in-depth knowledge of past and contemporary developments in Organisation Theory. You should explain why you think this approach indicates a more positive, ethical, and responsible alternative for employees and/or society, but also acknowledge potential limits or challenges.

Additional Guidelines for Part 1b:

  • You may choose an organisation you are familiar with or may wish to eventually work for, or identify a suitable case from (high-quality) news or media, the reading list, or library databases. Your chosen organisation may operate in the private, public or plural-sector.
  • You should name the case organisation, explain what they do (1-2 sentences max.), and include a link to their webpage and/or the primary reference for your case study source before continuing with your analysis. These may be excluded from your word count.
  • Your critical analysis must advance an argument which is supported by theories, concepts and examples. Support for how to develop an academic argument is available on Blackboard.
  • You may draw on the organisation’s own website and other high-quality journalistic reporting to substantiate your analysis. Your academic sources should primarily be drawn from the module reading list. All sources need to be appropriately referenced using correct formatting.
  • Part 1b of your assignment should be approximately 1200 words in length. The word count is necessarily restrictive. Focus on the most demonstrative issues and make sure your writing is concise.

Part 2: Personal Reflection (c. 600 words)

The final part of your assignment should be a personal reflection on what you have learned in the module and in particular, what you have learned about yourself. Drawing on your Personal Reflection Log, which must be attached as an appendix, you should analyse specific knowledge, skills and qualities that you have developed through the module, and how this inner development will support your ability to manage responsibly and/or bring about positive social change. Your reflection should make explicit reference to the Inner Development Goals (IDGs). You should focus on evaluating a few key dimensions, highlight those areas you feel need most improvement, and suggest how you may support your ongoing process of inner development.

Additional Guidance for Part 2

  • Where appropriate, your reflection should be supported by academic references that demonstrate the theoretical basis or philosophical importance of the skills you have developed.
  • The personal reflection should be written in the first person. However, it is still a formal, academic piece of work and therefore should follow other conventions regarding style and referencing.
  • Part 2 of your assignment should be approximately 600 words in length. The word count is necessarily restrictive. Focus on highlighting a few key areas that have been most significant for your learning and development in this module.

ASSESSMENT REGULATIONS

You are advised to read the guidance for students regarding assessment policies. They are available online here.

Academic Misconduct

The Assessment Regulations for Taught Awards (ARTA) contain the Regulations and procedures applying to cheating, plagiarism, the use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) Systems, and other forms of academic misconduct.               

The full policy is available here

You are reminded that plagiarism, collusion, the use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) Systems, and other forms of academic misconduct, as referred to in the Academic Misconduct procedure of the assessment regulations, are taken very seriously. Assignments in which evidence of plagiarism or other forms of academic misconduct is found may receive a mark of zero.

Late submission of work

Quizzes which have not been started prior to the submission deadline will not be eligible for late submission.

Where coursework is submitted without approval, after the published hand-in deadline, the following penalties will apply. For coursework submitted up to 1 working day (24 hours) after the published hand-in deadline without approval, 10% of the total marks available for the assessment (i.e.100%) shall be deducted from the assessment mark.

For clarity: a late piece of work that would have scored 65%, 55% or 45% had it been handed in on time will be awarded 55%, 45% or 35% respectively as 10% of the total available marks will have been deducted.

Coursework submitted more than 1 day (24 hours) after the published hand-in deadline without approval will be marked as zero but will be eligible for referral. The reassessment should where appropriate, and as determined by the Module Leader, be the same method (e.g. essay) but maybe with a different task (e.g. different essay title) or with the same task (e.g. the same essay title) as indicated in the Module handbook.

In modules where there is more than one assessment component, Students are not required to complete all assessment components if an overall Pass Mark (40% UG, 50% PGT) has been achieved.

The only permitted exception will be in cases where the University is prevented from doing so by a PSRB requirement. In the case of PSRB requirements, a variation order will be required from the regulations.

In modules, where there is more than one assessment component and an overall pass mark has not been achieved, Students will be eligible for a referral* in the individual failed module and/or not attempted component(s) of assessment.

These provisions apply to all assessments, including those assessed on a Pass/Fail basis

The full policy can be found here

Word limits

The word count is to be declared on the front page of your assignment and the assignment cover sheet.  The word count does not include:

  • Header material for Part 1b (i.e. organisation name, 1-2 sentence description, and source)
  • Appendix for Part 2 (i.e. Personal Reflection Log)
  • Reference list

Please note, in text citations [e.g. (Smith, 2011)] and direct secondary quotations [e.g. “dib-dab nonsense analysis” (Smith, 2011 p.123)] are INCLUDED in the word count.

If this word count is falsified, students are reminded that under ARTA this will be regarded as academic misconduct.

For those assessments where students are required to keep to the word limit, it is proposed that they should be informed that the marker will stop reading at the point when they judge that the word limit exceeds the recommended word count by more than 10%.  The marker will indicate the point at which they stop reading on the text. 

Students must retain an electronic copy of this assignment (including ALL appendices) and it must be made available within 24hours of them requesting it be submitted.

You are also advised to keep copies of developmental and draft work so that you can show your incremental work process. In the case of suspected academic misconduct you may be asked to show your draft notes.
