Please refer to your Student Handbook for full details of the programme assessment scheme and general information on preparing and submitting assignments.

Your assignment should include: a title page containing your student number, the module name, the submission deadline and a word count; the appendices if relevant; and a reference list in Arden University (AU) Harvard format. You should address all the elements of the assignment task listed below. Please note that tutors will use the assessment criteria set out below in assessing your work.

You must not include your name in your submission because Arden University operates anonymous marking, which means that markers should not be aware of the identity of the student. However, please do not forget to include your STU number.

Maximum word count (for all tasks): 4,000 words

Please note that exceeding the word count will result in a reduction in grade proportionate to the number of words used in excess of the permitted limit.

Task 1: 10-minute individual PowerPoint presentation (25% of the final grade)

An individual PowerPoint presentation with narration and notes on each slide.

You are part of a global consulting company that has offices in France, China and South Africa. The head office is in New York and the predominant organisational culture stems from there.

Explore and discuss how the national and organisational culture from the head office location affects how business is conducted when encountering the regional cultures that are present in each of its locations.

Use the group dynamics to explore the four countries and draw upon the external resources made available during the module and your own extended reading.

Your findings should be presented as a PowerPoint presentation with narration using no more than ten slides.

The next page contains instructions for submitting the PowerPoint presentation. (1,000 words) (25 marks) (LOs 1 and 5)

Task 1: Assessment Submission Guidance

Before submitting your individual presentation for task 1, please follow the instructions below:

1. Voice narration

Each slide in your presentation should have a voice narration:

  • It is recommended that your voice narration does not exceed ten minutes
  • It is recommended that you should speak for one minute for each slide.
  • There is no word limit on your narration.

Voice narration should be incorporated within each slide separately and not submitted as a separate voice file - please watch the following video on how to do this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pP3kTmsnbnY

2. Notes section

As your written word limit is 1,000 words, you should include approximately 100 words in the notes section of each slide.

  • You should use these 100 words to describe the information you present on each slide (normal citation and paraphrasing requirements apply).
  • Please note that the 100-word limit applies to the notes section only, not to the content on each slide, where you may include any information you believe will enhance your presentation.

3. Content

  • Each slide may contain text, pictures, videos, tables, figures, graphs, etc. - but do not overdo it.
  • Generally, slides should contain a minimum amount of content, which can be enhanced by your (voice) narration, and the information provided in the notes section.
  • Your slides should be presented in a professional manner.
  • Throughout your presentation, please make sure to cite relevant (academic) sources.
  • The information contained in the slides as well as the notes section should not be merely read. The information must be presented as though it were being presented to a live audience that is interested in learning more about it.

4.  Amount of slides

Your presentation must contain a total of exactly 12 slides:

Slide 1: The first slide is the cover page (where you will include your title and student ID only). To ensure that your presentations look professional, please use the official Arden cover page

Slides 2 to 11: This is the presentation itself. Remember to include voice narration and notes in the notes section of each slide.

Slide 12: This is the reference list for all of the (academic) sources that you cited throughout the presentation.

5. Submission

You should create two PowerPoint files with your presentation:

1. One PowerPoint file should include your voice narration – you should upload that file in the submission box with the title: Task 1 Presentation [INCLUDE VOICE]

2. Second PowerPoint file should be without the voice narration – you should upload that file in the submission box with the title: Task 1 Presentation [DO NOT INCLUDE VOICE]

3. Your report file that includes tasks 2 and 3 should be uploaded in the submission box with the title: Tasks 2 and 3 (REPORT)

Formative Feedback BUS6003 International Management

You have the opportunity to submit an outline plan to receive formative feedback.

The feedback is designed to help you develop areas of your work and it helps you develop your skills as an independent learner.

If you are a distance learning student, you should submit your work, by email, to your tutor, no later than 2 weeks before the actual submission deadline. If you are a blended learning student, your tutor will give you a deadline for formative feedback and further details.

Formative feedback will not be given to work submitted after the above date.

Task 3: Individual written assignment tasks (50% of the final grade)

As a result of research conducted in 2001, Govindarajan and Gupta (2001 cited in Ferrazzi 2014, p2) found that 82% of Global Virtual Teams fell short of their goals and 33% rated themselves as largely unsuccessful.

Source: Ferrazzi, K., 2014. Getting Virtual Teams Right. Harvard Business Review [Online] available at https://hbr.org/2014/12/getting-virtual-teams-right [accessed 15.07.2022]

Prepare a report that critically discusses the evidence about why such teams might fail and the factors that maximise success for a global virtual team.

In answering this question, you should engage with key concepts and research signposted in module material and your own extensive reading.

You should also consider the extent to which factors that lead to success with global virtual are one and the same as those that lead to success for homogenous, ‘traditional’ teams.

Your considerations need to be backed up by extended reading of academic scholarly work and must not be based upon your opinion.

You will also be provided with a planning framework with which to plan how you will respond to Task 3. (2,000 words) (50 marks) (LOs 3 and 4)
