Notes for Students:

Assessment is one piece of individual coursework. This is a 3500 word assignment (plus or minus 5 per cent excluding Bibliography, cover content and tables). The assignment should be fully supported by appropriate references using the Harvard system. Feedback (individual and generic) will be posted on X-Stream no later than three weeks after submission.

Your assignment titles for Semester Two 2012-13 delivery of ‘Innovation and Change’ are:

Critically evaluate the claim that governments have a crucial role to play in promoting innovation

OR

To what extent do you agree with the claim that small to medium sized enterprises (SMEs) are always better at innovating than larger organisations?

Where possible and appropriate, use examples and illustrations to illustrate and support your analysis. Your assignment should be fully supported with references drawn from the recommended reading (see below) and other sources. Avoid too descriptive an approach – the emphasis should be on analysis and argument. An assignment based solely on lecture notes/slides is unlikely to be successful. Your assignment will be submitted on line and scanned through Turnitin for plagiarism.

Please note the following points:

• You can attach appendices (not included in word count)

• Only material up to the word limit will be assessed

• Your assignment must apply insights from the module and your reading to explore whether or not innovation can be ‘planned for’

Assessment Rationale

Link Module Objectives / Learning Outcomes and demonstrate how the proposed assessment(s) meet these objectives.

The assessment links with the learning outcomes by enabling students to draw together the core issues addressed in the module and to explore what we mean by ‘innovation’ and how it can promoted and embedded in an organisation.

The Learning Objectives are:

• Understand the significance and importance of innovation and change in relation to business enterprises and the nature of the drivers of change

• Critically appraise theories, tools and techniques appropriate to the management of innovation and change.

• Manage innovation in changing environments to sustain business development.

• Evaluate the national and global conditions, barriers and climate for innovation and change.

The assessment requires students to address all four outcomes outlined above.

Good students will be differentiated through their ability to display knowledge and understanding of key theoretical perspectives on innovation and change and the internal and external factors shaping and influencing innovation.
