Assessment Task  

This assessment requires you to explore and critically discuss the models, concepts, and theories  presented in Modules 1.1, 1.2, and 2.1 and their practical application through your experiences and  observations by contributing to a group discussion and then submitting an individual critical  discussion report.  

Please refer to the Task Instructions for details on how to complete this task.  


Successful managers take a 360-degree view of their environment and are cognisant of  opportunities to learn and apply ideas from other industries and disciplines. The first three sub modules (Modules 1.1, 1.2, and 2.1) of this subject serve to orient you to the varying roles and  contexts in which managers must operate and introduces foundational skills in managing people and  teams. This assessment is designed for you to demonstrate not only an understanding of managerial  concepts but also their practical application. In doing so, you will demonstrate critical thinking and  evaluative skills as well as effective communication skills required in a virtual environment.


  1. Group Formation  

At the beginning of the trimester, you will be placed in a group of 3-4 students by the Learning  Facilitator. Your group will be a forum for sharing thoughts, experiences, and research in relation  to the learning activities in the Modules 1.1, 1.2, and 2.1.  

Note: Although the Assessment 1 is an individual assessment, it is important to build  relationships with your group members. This is because you will work with the same group for  Assessment 2. Introduce yourself to your group with an introductory post. It will also help to  have a virtual meeting to get to know each other.

You must reply to the posts of at least two (2) other students for each activity. This means you will write a total of 3 activity posts and 6 replies.
