The purpose of the Final Project is to apply the concepts and techniques of the module to the analysis of real-world situations or problems. You will be expected to use diverse sources of information and to carry out an original analysis rather than summarise or rehash existing work. You are encouraged to use situations and data from your own experience where possible.
During Week 5 you were introduced to a non-Western perspective on organisational learning and how differences that are present lead to different considerations for the creation of knowledge. Make a careful study of the sections in Chapter 32 that discuss the conventional model of organisational learning, the characteristics of Chinese firms, and the learning strategies and processes of Chinese firms. For your Final Project, you will write a detailed report that critically analyses the differences from the conventional model of organisational learning presented in this module and the learning strategies and processes that are prevalent in your region of the world and your own country. The purpose of the report is to provide information to foreign companies that intend to establish operations in your region and your country. You should devote a significant part of your project to providing as much information as possible based on your knowledge and experiences of local business practices, customs, and traditions in order to correct and/or enhance what is offered in the textbook. The aim is to create a formal business report that would help managers in very practical ways to develop an organisational learning strategy for operating effectively with local staff to set up a viable operation in your country. You should consider the areas and organisational learning concepts you have covered throughout the module, for example, the creation of organisational knowledge, the social context and processes, learning in networks, multinational networks, learning through strategic alliances, and barriers to organisational learning.
Your Final Project should also include a section on how and where you obtained the information sources, as well as the methodology used to perform any analysis. Be sure to adhere to the Harvard Referencing System, This project should follow a structured approach and should be prepared and presented as a professional business report.
I also attached two other files of the project proposal and the outline that was used in week 5 and 7 respectively for your reference about Namibia''s learning style.
The text book is that by Dierkes et al 2003.
Please use the Harvard referencing style both in the body and the bibliography
