Undertake the following tasks:
1. Develop a position paper for enhancing the organisation's strategic capability by influencing the strategy in action.
2. Evaluate the organisation's strategic planning processes and suggest and justify any improvements.
1. Treat each of the two questions as separate tasks which you must answer in essay format.
2. In answering these two questions, you will be demonstrating your knowledge of the material contained in modules three and four specifically but you will also be building on the knowledge you have gained in the course to date, including what you have learnt from the first two modules.
3. Each of the two questions is weighted equally.
4. The chosen organisation must be currently in operation.
5. The total word count for each of the two questions must not exceed 1500 words per question. Any background information on the organisation can be placed in the appendix which will not be considered in the word count. The appendix can be common to both questions.
6. A reference list should be included at the end of the second essay as a reference list common to both questions. Students are expected to support their responses to the two questions with a minimum of fifteen (15) different references in order to support the arguments being made.
7. Further discussions on the requirements of this assignment will be found on the discussion forum and students are strongly advised to make a contribution to this forum before the submission of the assignment.
