Context: MGMT6002 Influencing And Making Decisions Assignment Help
The first half of this subject focuses on the individual and the specific processes—cognitive
or otherwise—that individuals engage in when faced with a decision to make. Your task in
this first assessment is to reflect on those processes in the context of your own experience
and in accounts found in wider reading, and to identify and critique the specific models and frameworks available to you as a decision-maker.
Construct a reflective analytical report, founded on solid research of decision-making
methods, models, frameworks and taxonomies found both in the subject and in wider
scholarly reading you undertake.
The report is to be limited to 3000 words, exclusive of formal document sections (i.e. title
page, executive summary, table of contents, references list, appendices, etc.), citations,
tables and graphs. Students should submit one file through Turnitin.
There are a number of forms the report could take. The exact form the report will depend
on the additional research the student will undertake; students should aim for the demonstration of deep learning, founded on theory through thorough reading of scholarly
literature, rather than on getting any aspect of the brief ‘right.’
Students should commence this assignment early, keep regular backups and ensure they
submit the correct, final version. Students should use this brief as the instruction set for the assignment requirements. Additionally, the rubric below can be used to describe what
unacceptable, functional, proficient, advanced and exceptional assignments might look like according to the criteria in the leftmost column of each row.
As this is a Masters level subject, students are expected to engage with high-quality academic journal articles, using the Torrens University Library. Textbooks, Wikipedia and, in general, anything that can be obtained through an open Google search page are considered supplementary material, unbecoming of a postgraduate.
There are numerous ways to interpret the assessment brief. This rubric should not be used as a prescription or tick-the-box list of requirements but as a description of an amalgam of several possible interpretations and the standards they might take. The assessment will
be graded holistically, based on the criteria in the leftmost column. Your interpretation may not match the rubric exactly as you may extend the requirements, using your initiative to demonstrate your mastery of the subject matter. Additionally, you may demonstrate elements described in the Advanced column and still be graded ‘Functional’ for one or more of the criteria (the reverse trend is also possible). Higher performing submissions will depend on wider reading, rather than on the rubric verbatim.
