MGT6B8 – Contemporary Management in Action – Autumn 2021

(MGT6B8) Contemporary Management in Action

Brief – Summative Assessment 1


Research Proposal

Autumn Term 2021

Assessment Brief

Overview: This module gives you the opportunity to complete a significant action research report within your area of specialism of Management. In preparation for your pathway action research report, students are required to develop a research proposal. Assessment 2 of this module will follow on from this assessment, so you must choose an area which is aligned to Management. It is strongly suggested that you choose an area which is of interest to you given that you will be working on this area for a year. The key is to ensure that the focus is on Management practices and potential challenges/opportunities that might arise for the chosen company/industry.

Learning Outcomes to be met by the Assessment

· Propose solutions to a range of complex and/or unpredictable problems that arise from management practice.

· Critically evaluate the impact of strategic decisions upon an organisation and its integrated practices.

· Demonstrate capacity for independent learning and self-directed development.

TASK: The research proposal enables you to identify a research question aligned with your Management pathway area. The research proposal requires you to ascertain the scope of your research, its aims, research question and objectives. It also includes a brief overview of key literature to help illuminate the research question and offers insights into primary or secondary evidence-based data collection methods, and timeline to prompt your thinking. The research proposal needs to be feasible and well-thought out since it will be executed in assessment 2. The word count for the proposal is 2500 words (+/- 10%) and you must submit proposal and ethics form by the deadline to their respective submission links on BB. This is worth 25% of the module.

Scope: You are on the Management pathway and so your research focus should be on topics from this area. Of course, you can refer to the outside influences of Marketing, Finance, Economics etc, but they shouldn’t be the focus. You need to demonstrate familiarity with a wide range of Management issues.



Independent Learning: This is an assessment that requires independent learning. This means that you are expected to research autonomously and with peers in order to make decisions e.g. it is up to you to research the various available theories and apply appropriate theory. Prior to submitting your work, please ensure that you have self-checked covering the objectives and requirements of this assessment.
