Formative feedback In week 3 of the module you will submit a formative proposal of 300-400 words detailing: Your choice of organisation or theme for investigation, and your proposed Managing the People IssuesHow you will address each learning outcome You will receive formative feedback to guide you in line with the module aims. Guidance Students are asked to reflect on their personal network of tutors, family members, relatives and professional / social networks to thoroughly consider if it is possible to source a live organisation and to manage an innovation project and produce a reflective log.

If student are unsure then they are encouraged to liaise with their tutor. This task requires students to document a key challenge an organisation is experiencing whilst implementing an innovation project. It is recognised that whilst a student will identify a core issue there will no doubt be a series of symptomatic issues which will also need to be addressed.
