Assessment Description

Students are to pick a real organisation of their choice that is either privately or publicly owned. It should be of interest or relevance to their industry sector, job role and/or MBA specialisation. Note, the organisation you pick should also be used in Assessment 2.

Assuming the role of an organisational consultant, students are to apply their strategic thinking skills by researching the organisation and analysing the factors that clearly identify and explain its competitive advantage.

Findings should be presented in a video which provides an overview in a form and tone that is presentable to the organisations executive team. It should be 15 minutes long and contain 10 to 15 slides that assist the executive to understand the findings presented.

Areas covered should include:

  • Introduction.

  • A brief overview of the organisation.

  • An analysis of the external and internal environment using appropriate theories and


  • Clear articulation of the competitive advantage identified.

  • A diagnosis of the strengths, weaknesses, sources and future sustainability of the

    competitive advantage outlined.

  • A conclusion that identifies strategic opportunities and risks.

    Students are encouraged to use a wide variety of information sources that include, where possible, primary research such as interviews with staff or executive members within their chosen organisation.

    Students are encouraged to explore and utilise features of webinar technologies and to include a wide range of multimedia and/or interactive content that is in appropriate for a presentation to an executive.

    Students will be provided with guidance on the LMS on how to submit their webinar through Vimeo.
