Detailed Brief for Individual Assessment
Assignment Title: Group Report, Reflective Account and Attendance Diary
The assessment will require students to work as a group to produce a research-based report plus a 500-word Reflective Account of working in a group during this module. Students will also submit an Attendance Diary to document their participation in lectures and tutorials. This assessment allows you to demonstrate your ability to research a topic and engage in cross-cultural team working.

Description of the assignment: A group report on the following topic: 

Critically examine the view that understanding cultural differences is important for firms operating in an international context. Specifically, with reference to relevant cultural theories, identify and discuss four HRM policies or practices in which understanding culture is important. Each team member should discuss one policy or practice, using specific country examples and drawing upon the academic literature. Fully reference your work.

EACH student in each group must choose ONE policy or practice. Each student should focus on a different policy/practice. 

You must: 
Introduce the topic - state briefly the purpose and structure of the discussion.  
Conclude with the implications for the MNC.   
Arguments (descriptions, explanations) should be presented as short coherent paragraphs dealing with one aspect of the argument. Do not use bullet points, notes or single sentence fragments.
Your work must be properly referenced in the text. Any quotations must be shown in quotation marks (“ “) with referencing.  
The report must be presented in standard report format with: i) a title page (including group number), contents, Introduction, numbered sections (1, 2, 3 etc.), ii) Conclusion; iii) list of references. Do not include any appendices. The report must be paginated. 
Only ONE ELECTRONIC copy should be produced per student, submitted through Canvas by the deadline set. 
Word length is subject to a tolerance of plus or minus 10 per cent (with cumulative 10 per cent penalties being applied for every 10 per cent outside this range). The contents page, list of references do not account towards the word totals. As normal, plagiarism will be penalised.

You will work in groups of four (maximum). You will be randomly assigned to groups. Your report should draw upon published academic literature, academically approved websites (e.g. government websites) and your own experiences. 
Students are required to submit reports electronically via Canvas. Individual sections should be submitted separately – one per student. Please ensure you include your Group Number and student IDs of all group members on your cover page.

This ‘Personal Reflection’ is your own reflection on the process of working in a cross-cultural group during this module; you might wish to discuss, for example: the strengths and weaknesses of cross-cultural groups; what you enjoyed or disliked about working in a cross-cultural group; how you managed the process; what you have learned from this and what you would do differently in future. Your reflection should be written in the first person (use me / I) and should be no more than 500 words in total. 

This ‘Reflective Account’ is not given a mark but will be awarded a Pass or a Fail. Penalties will be applied for non-submission - if your assignment is submitted without the reflective account, then you will receive a zero for this element of the assignment.
The format of the Reflective Account is up to you, however, further guidance will be provided in class.

The Reflective Account should be submitted with the Group Report. Start your Reflection on a new page.

Check your work on Turnitin (submissions will not be accepted without Turnitin checks).

Attendance Diary (10% of your module grade) 

Produce an Attendance Diary highlighting what you have learnt for each weekly topic on the module. See Assignments for the format of the Diary.

The Attendance Diary is not given a mark but will be awarded a Pass or a Fail. Penalties will be applied for non-submission - if your assignment is submitted without the Attendance Diary, then you will receive a zero for this element of the assignment.

The Attendance Diary should be submitted together with the Reflective Account and the Group Report. Your Diary should start on a new page.
