Semester 2 Assessment:Individual Report Learning Outcomes Assessed:LO3 and LO4 Weighting: 70% of Overall Module Mark Word Limit: 2500 words For this individual assignment, you are expected to prepare a report that addresses the three elements below. You have been provided Tesla Plc Annual Report for 2022 as a starting point for your research. You are expected to undertake further research on the company (e.g., consumers, technological, environmental, political, and economic environment) in order to be able to address the following elements in your report. 1. Analyze the internal and external environment with reference to Tesla Plc’s operations in Europe as per their 2022 Annual Report and other supporting evidence you have gathered on the company until 2022. (40 marks) 2. Identify the key challenges and trends over the medium term (3 years – 2022 onwards) and how these will pose challenges and opportunities for Tesla Plc’s Europe operations. (30 marks) 3. Propose an international business strategy that responds to these challenges that Tesla Plc’s Europe operations could face. Furthermore, you are required to reflect upon any assumptions in making the proposed strategy in order for the organization to be prepared to tackle any challenges that it could face when implementing this proposed international business strategy. (30 marks) You should draw upon appropriate and relevant theory and evidence in relation to the argument built, aligning with the environmental, competitor, and consumer changes. Just copying reports or diagrams of models from sources you read will not give you any marks; however, using this data within appropriate strategic models is expected. Do apply the strategic models and concepts in a meaningful, properly referenced/evidenced, and a well-communicated and well-presented manner. General Guidelines for the Assessment Please take the following suggestions into consideration when writing your report: · All sources of information cited in the text of the report should be acknowledged in the list of references using the Staffordshire University Harvard referencing system. · The assignment needs to be well-written, analytical, critical of the theories and concepts where appropriate, well-researched, and showing clear linkages between theories, models and literature to the issues being discussed. The emphasis of the assignment must be on the analysis rather than on just describing the issues. · You have a +/− 10% leeway on your word count. Please refer below to the word count policy for further information. · The Plagiarism and Academic Dishonesty policy is strictly enforced. All submissions are scanned for plagiarism on Turnitin, and a penalty will be imposed on submissions that are flagged for plagiarism. Word Count Policy State the number of words used in your report on the cover page of your assignment. Your report should not exceed the word limit of 1500 words. Title, reference list, appendices, tables (succinct with bullet points), graphs and figures used within the main body of the report are excluded from the word count. A sliding scale of penalties for excess length will be imposed according to the amount by which the limit has been exceeded. Utilising 1500 as the maximum allowed word count for this assignment, the following applies: 1-10%ExcessNo penalty 11-20%Excess10% reduction in the mark 21-30%Excess25% reduction in the mark 31% +ExcessThe work will be capped at a pass, i.e. 40% NB. None of the above penalties will be used to change your mark which is above the pass mark to one that is below the pass mark. Therefore, the maximum penalty for exceeding the word limit will be a reduction to a pass grade. Citations and References · All sources of information used for the assignment should be presented in the slide deck as in-text citations and a list of references using the Staffordshire University Harvard referencing system (https://libguides.staffs.ac.uk/refzone/harvard). · Ensure that each in-text citation has an accompanying entry in the reference list, and vice versa. · Numbering and bullets are not required for the reference list. · References in the reference list need to be presented in ascending alphabetical order (i.e., from A to Z). · Tables and diagrams need to be carefully referenced.

Cengage Learning, Australia (Hard copy in the Library) Academic Misconduct and Submission Information The Business School takes any cases of academic misconduct, including plagiarism, very seriously. The penalties are severe and can, in some cases, result in a student not being allowed to continue their studies. Plagiarism will be dealt with according to Staffordshire University’s regulations on Academic Conduct. The academic conduct procedure can be found at: https://www.staffs.ac.uk/students/course-administration/academic-policies-and-regulations/academic-conduct-procedure What is plagiarism? Contrary to popular student belief, getting caught and being punished for committing plagiarism is not a rare occurrence. Academics typically uncover and report for disciplinary action between 6 and 12 students each year for ‘plagiarism’ on the University website. You will have committed plagiarism and may be caught, reported and punished (as described below) if you: · Copy extensively from the work of others (from sources such as books, magazines, journals, websites, for example) and submit the work as your own. It is acceptable to refer to the work of others as long as you do not use too much and reference your sources properly. · Copy another student’s work and submit it for assessment under your own name. · You allow another student to copy your work and they submit it for assessment under their own name. The last item is of particular importance. Few students seem to understand what it means. You should be aware that if, for example, you allow another student to borrow your work and they subsequently copy some of that work and present it as their own, you and they will both be punished even though they copied your work. What happens if you get caught? Examination Boards may punish offending students in a number of ways. Typically, punishments range from reducing grades, making students re-sit modules, through to failing students on a module or an entire award. The University regards this form of cheating as a serious offence. Submission information If you fail to submit any assessment for a module an N will be recorded (non-submission) (fail due to non-submission) for that module and you will not have a guaranteed re-sit entitlement. Any further attempt entitlement will be at the discretion of the Award Board. Assignments must be submitted by the due date. The only circumstance in which assignments can be submitted late is if an extenuating circumstances claim is made.  In these circumstances work may be submitted up to 5 working days late only (this is not automatic).  If the extenuating circumstances are upheld, the assignment will be graded as usual.  If the claim is rejected and the work is of a pass grade, a maximum of a 40% will be awarded.  If your work is submitted after the 5 working days a 0 will be awarded. Performance Criteria Marks are awarded based on the following guidelines: Grade Assessment Guidelines 0-39% Unsatisfactory superficial analyses, concepts ad language of the subject are absent or scant.
