Assessment 1 (Part A) -Essay

Understanding Management and Business Context


A business organisation is an individual  or group of people that collaborate to achieve certain commercial  goals. Some business organisations are formed to earn income for owners.  Other business organisations, called nonprofits, are formed for public  purposes. This is an individual assessment task in which you will  examine critical issues related to business and management contexts. The  objective is to gain greater understanding of the contextual factors  internal and external to a business that impact on a business  organisation and its decision making.


This is an individual assessment task in  which students will examine critical issues related to business and  management context. The purpose of the task is to assist you in gaining a  greater understanding of the internal contextual factors that impact on  a business and the way that decisions are made in an organisation.

Before starting this assessment please  read the marking criteria (in a separate document) and refer to other  resources provided on the Moodle site for this course.


As Masters students, you are required to  engage in research as per the Australia Quality Framework (AQF)  guidelines. Two specific requirements need to be considered. 1. Students  need to demonstrate “a body of knowledge that includes the  understanding of recent developments in a discipline and/or area of  professional practice, and 2. Students must demonstrate “knowledge of  research principles and methods applicable to a field of work and/or  learning”.

This unit has a number of required  weekly readings in terms of academic texts, journals and business  publications that represent the appropriate body of knowledge and recent  developments referred to by the AQF. In order to demonstrate the  ability to engage in appropriate research, students should read and  utilise these texts and journals and publications. As Masters students,  you are expected to research beyond this minimum standard through  additional texts, journals and studies to demonstrate an ability to  engage in independent research.


Identify a ‘hypothetical' business  opportunity that if you had the funds, time and drive you would pursue  as a business start-up. This could be an idea you believe has the  potential to become a business for you to own and grow. Business ideas  can be discussed with your campus tutor, or via email consultation with  the unit coordinator for distance students.

Your task is to write an essay that includes the following:

– A brief description of your organisation, including factors such as:
o its size
o the industry in which it will operate
o the country/countries in which it will operate
o the strategy and vision that it will adopt.

– An analysis of your organisation using  information from Topics 1-5 on the Moodle site. This analysis could  include elements such as:
o The organisational structure that best suits your new business start-up.
o The external and internal environmental forces that will impact your business organisation.
o The risks that will confront your business organisation.
o The business practices that you will adopt to enhance organisational performance.
o The most important functions within your business organisation and how these relate to its performance.
– A comprehensive reference list of sources used to support your analysis.

Students are to demonstrate knowledge of the subject matter by:
– Defining key terms and utilising the theories and concepts presented in Topics 1-5.
– Explaining major internal and external contextual factors and how they affect business structures and strategy.
– Providing well justified and feasible business recommendations based on the analysis conducted.
– Demonstrating a breadth and quality of research by using a minimum of 12-16 academic sources.
– Correctly using the APA referencing system to cite academic sources in-text and in the reference list.
– Correctly using the essay structure and using appropriate conventions of academic writing.

business process management assignment 6

Unit 6 Assignment: RASCI Model and Performance Management

In this Assignment, you are going to evaluate a specific business process to provide effective solutions, identify roles, and measure performance.


watchmen annotated bibliography assignment you need to chose the articles fro the collage library i will send it to u

For this project, you will do some scholarly research for your Watchmen presentations. The finished project will be an annotated bibliography with 2 sources.


  • Find appropriate sources
  • Use MLA citation
  • Distinguish between types of sources
  • Summarize sources
  • Evaluate sources
  • Apply research to course text

The first step is finding 2 sources that would be helpful in preparing your Watchmen final presentation, so be sure to review the possible topics. This should help you focus on what types of articles that will be most useful. You should not simply use the first sources you find.

The most successful library search term that I have found is : Watchmen Alan Moore

You will need to scan through the listings, and I have also found that the more specific your terms, like Ozymandias Monster, usually do not work.

(For help, read the Research Overview section of Purdue’s OWL site ( (Links to an external site.)).

Keep in mind that these academic sources don’t necessarily need to be directly about the particular work you are researching. You may use history, psychology, sociology, economics, or any approach that you can clearly apply to your chosen work. After deciding upon 3 sources, you will create an annotated bibliography.

The Assignment: For each article, you will turn in a 1 ­page, single-­spaced response that includes the following. Label each section.

Citation (Use MLA format. For help go to OWL( (Links to an external site.)

Summary (Be sure to present the main points, and demonstrate by using examples and quotations)

Evaluation (Explain the strengths and weaknesses of the content, type, and author of your source)

Application (Briefly explain how you would use the source in a research paper about the literary work)

There are samples posted for your review.

I will be giving you your grade for the assignment. Though the grade will largely be based on how you do in these three categories, there is not a grand equation that connects grading to the rubric. You will also need to get the citations correct. I will count off for mistakes there.


Watchmen and History — What events in the book really happened. Why do you think Moore chose to include these events. Does Moore change any of these real events for the story? How? What purpose does it serve to change these events? What historical events in the novel are fictitious, or, alternative to actual history. Why do you think Moore changed these events? How are the real 1980s reflected in the novel? This can be events in history, technological advances, social situations. You DO NOT have to address all of these issues. Create and prove a claim that supports those issues that you find most compelling.

response assignment rawls original position and the difference principle

You are behind the veil of ignorance and don’t know whether you will be in the top 20%, the bottom, or somewhere in the middle. Not knowing this, which country would you want to live in? Why? Which country has the most fair distribution according to Rawls’ difference principle? Why? (briefly explain what the difference principle is and what justifies it). Rawls is discussed in Burnor & Raley Ch. 10 pp. 205-207.

As you point out NAFTA has generated a LOT of economic expansion in all three countries If the US do

As you point out NAFTA has generated a LOT of economic expansion in all three countries If the US does not seek out places where products can be made at a more competitive rate, our international competitors WILL and the American company we tried to protect (via the use of tariffs for exp) will eventually lose its ability to compete on a global stage and those jobs will be lost in the long run anyway

Given this – should countries try to protect certain industries simply to protect jobs and high wages? Why/Why Not?
