Appendix A — Coursework Information Management Pathway – (Level 6) The Real World of Management Individual Assignment (100% of the module assessment)The assignment requirementsKurt Lewin proposed that “there is nothing so practical as a good theory” (Lewin 1951).It is with this in mind that the purpose of this module is to critically research, explore and evaluate academic theories and concepts within a real world context.This will be accomplished by the on-going development of a critical portfolio in which you compare, contrast and critically evaluate the potential linkages, tensions and contradictions between a chosen academic conceptual framework and its lived experience. Ideally your portfolio should draw on your own primary research in terms of people’s views, experience and stories and a range of appropriate academic literature. Secondary research can also be used to support and enhance the discussion. This portfolio will be developed using PPT Slides or other online platforms (where applicable), and should include approximately 3,000 words of critical commentary.Developing the portfolioPlease note this assignment must be seen as a distinct piece assessment, and should not be based on any assignments currently or previously submitted for assessment.From past experience the portfolios achieving the higher marks were built on an on-going basis through gathering and uploading appropriate evidence – for example: media files, photographs, web links, video clips, text downloads, to support analysis and evaluation of the concept(s), emerging themes and their application to the real world of management and organisations.Your portfolio should have an introductory page which clearly sets out your focus i.e. key questions/issues you will you be focusing on through the research project. What factors have led you to choose the focus — your rationale? The stronger portfolios will draw their research from a range of sources to introduce different perspectives. However, what tends to make the stronger portfolios more thoughtful and unique is to introduce peoples’ lived experience. This can be achieved by uploading video, audio or transcripts of their stories and insights. Secondary research can be used to compare and contrast these experience. It is your responsibility as a researcher to ensure that permission has been requested and given from individual participants before uploading the data material to the portfolio.
