Contemporary issues in management

EssayThis assignment takes the form of an individual study of ethics and organizational storytelling. The work count is 2500 words.Students to select ONE of the following titles:1. Using a practical study working with a variety of narratives, demonstrate how storytelling research can inform you understanding of managerial sensemaking and responsible management.2. It can be argued that organizational storytelling research has contributed significantly to our understanding of organisational misbehaviour, organisational mismanagement and economic malpractice. Examine this clan by applying either Boje?s notion of quantum stories or Gabriel?s psychoanalytic account of the ?unmanaged spaces? to consider tensions between individual sense-making and organisational espoused values.3. Researchers who focus on stories are missing the point. Organisational ethics are economically determined in the last instance. Discuss.Note well ?1. All work should make clear and appropriate use of academic literature.2. All work should be appropriately referenced.3. Examples should be used, where appropriate, to both develop ideas and construct argument.Note well ? in this assignment we are interested in whether you have a good grasp of the core concepts.EssayThis assignment takes the form of an individual study of ethics and organizational storytelling.

No evidence of theoretical underpinning to the study. The study tends to offer a ?coffee bar? common sense explanation. There is evidence of some reading and some theoretical awareness of key terms. . Awareness is evident but only surface knowledge or gloss is evident in the analysis. The material used in the examples is limited but appropriate There is little evidence of understanding. There may be some technical errors and inaccuracy in applying theory. To improve this study ? examine the core analytic concepts used in the theory and extend reading by reference to published empirical work that USE the theory to analyse problems Nicely selected examples and the material is well used. There is clear effort evident in the study. An understanding of theory is evident and some concepts are used ? often with a light touch. There is a tendency to focus on uncritical description and hence any analysis has limited direct value ? that is the potential power of the study is lost. To improve the grade, you might develop your work over a longer period and refine your analysis several times through editing and re-editing. On each iteration you will find new and potentially stronger points top make about the topic. A sound piece of work that reflects a good understanding of the underpinning theory. Analytic concepts have been selected well and applied accurately. Appropriate examples are used and the material has interest beyond the needs of the programme/module. The discussion informs management thinking and is critical and analytic.To improve this grade ? consider the depth and power of analysis. The points made need to be critical, logical, and well ordered. Similarly, consider the limits of the discussion and extend reading ? to read further into theory and empirical works. A well framed and coherent study. The discussion/analysis reveals a sound grasp of theory. There is clear ability to identify, select and deploy analytic concepts with confidence and accuracy. The work reveals a critical and engaged mind.Well selected examples that offer the opportunity for a lively discussion.There is evidence of extensive engagement with the literature (theory and practice) and the work has depth. Well done An excellent study that shows depth, critical thinking, imagination, analytic precision and a questioning/insatiable curiosity about management in action.The work is mature and show a grasp of theoretic concerns ? including the paradigmatic nature of analysis.The materials are expertly selected and the overall piece has pace and depth.Reflect critically upon the state of contemporary management practice Use a practical example to illustrate personal reflection No reflection on practice offered Tried and tested reflection that does not necessarily come from the study, A reflection that draws on the study but that has a light touch and no personal practice element. A reflection clearly taken from the study and supporting a clear personal point of reflection on the nature of ones emerging management practice/style The whole work evidences a continuing reflection on practice that is both personal and professional. A reflexive ccount of oneself as an ?emergent? manager
