  • justify why it is important for management to take action to address the issue/problem raised, having regard to its impacts on performance in the organisation (at multiple levels, if this is appropriate);
  • use research/academic literature to analyze and assess possible strategies for managing the issue/problem,taking into consideration constraints that exist in the organization;
