    Submission Details:

    for marking.
    Question:
    "Culture eats strategy for breakfast" (Peter Drucker). Critically discuss.
    Aims and Objectives
    This assessment encourages students to:

    environment.
     Provide a critical perspective of the academic literature on a topic.
     Construct a sustained argument in response to the question.

    Harvard method.
     Failure to provide appropriate citations is plagiarism. See the academic
    honesty policy. Your list of references should include only material cited in the
    essay.
     This is an individual assessment task – if a submitted essay is assessed as
    not being the work of a single author then academic honesty rules apply.

     Should there be a dispute about member contribution to the group project,
    please refer to the Student Evaluation of Member Participation in Group
    Assignment on pp.18-19 of this unit guide.
    Tutorial Presentation Topics
    It may initially seem preferable to be in a group with friends. However, while it
    certainly may be more comfortable to work with friends, research indicates that
    groups made up of strangers can often perform better, so please do not be
    concerned if it is not possible to be in a group with your friends. As you will have to
    be in regular contact with your group it is strongly recommended that you get the
    contact details of all of the members in your group. Not being in contact with your
    group is not an excuse for having little input into the group work.

    Final Examination
    Weighting: 40%
    Due Date:  Formal Examination Period 
    Duration:  2 Hours 
    A final examination is included as an assessment task for this unit to provide
    assurance that:
    i)  the product belongs to the student and
    ii)  the student has attained the knowledge and skills tested in the exam.
    The final examination will be of two hour duration and will be held during the
    University Examination period. The exam will include multiple choice and short
    answer questions. The whole of the unit, including seminars, is examinable in the
    final exam. Details of the final exam’s format will be given in class.
    The University Examination period in Second Half Year 2013 is from November 11 to
    November 29 (http://www.mq.edu.au/calendar.html).
    You are expected to present yourself for examination at the time and place
    designated in the University Examination Timetable. The timetable will be available in
    Draft form approximately eight weeks before the commencement of the examinations
    and in Final form approximately four weeks before the commencement of the
    examinations.
    http:// exams.mq.edu.au/
    10
    The only exception to not sitting an examination at the designated time is because of
    documented illness or unavoidable disruption. In these circumstances you may wish
    to consider applying for Special Consideration. The University’s policy on special
    consideration process is available at
    http://www.mq.edu.au/policy/docs/special_consideration/policy.html
    If a Supplementary Examination is granted as a result of the Special Consideration
    process the examination will be scheduled after the conclusion of the official
    examination period.
    The Macquarie university examination policy details the principles and conduct of
    examinations at the University. The policy is available at:
    http://www.mq.edu.au/policy/docs/examination/policy.htm
    Extension requests: The University is committed to equity and fairness in all
    aspects of its learning and teaching. In stating this commitment, the University
    recognises that there may be circumstances where a student is prevented by
    unavoidable disruption from performing in accordance with their ability. A special
    consideration policy exists to support students who experience serious and
    unavoidable disruption such that they do not reach their usual demonstrated
    performance level. The policy is available at:
    http://www.mq.edu.au/policy/docs/special_consideration/procedure.html
    Late submissions: A student who submits a late assessment will be penalised by
    5% per day, i.e. marks equal to 5% of the assignment’s weight will be deducted as a
    ‘flat rate’ from the mark awarded. For example, for an assignment that has a possible
    highest mark of 40, the student’s awarded mark will have two marks deducted for
    each late day. Saturday and Sunday each count as one day. This penalty does not
    apply for cases in which an application for special consideration is made and
    approved. Assessments will not be accepted after the marked assessment task has
    been returned to students who submitted the task on time.
    11
    A CADEMIC  H ONESTY 
    The nature of scholarly endeavour, dependent as it is on the work of others, binds all
    members of the University community to abide by the principles of academic honesty.
    Its fundamental principle is that all staff and students act with integrity in the creation,
    development, application and use of ideas and information. This means that:
      all academic work claimed as original is the work of the author making the
    claim
      all academic collaborations are acknowledged
      academic work is not falsified in any way
      when the ideas of others are used, these ideas are acknowledged
    appropriately.
    Further information on the academic honesty can be found in the Macquarie
    University Academic Honesty Policy at
    http://www.mq.edu.au/policy/docs/academic_honesty/policy.html

    BBA102 – Principles of Management
    STUDENT EVALUATION OF MEMBER PARTICIPATION IN
    GROUP ASSIGNMENT
    NOTE: THIS FORM IS ONLY TO BE FILLED OUT IF THERE IS A DISPUTE ABOUT
    MEMBER CONTRIBUTION TO THE GROUP PROJECT.
    Group name/topic: ______________________________________________
    Group time, date (tutorial): ______________________________________________
    Your name: ______________________________________________
    This form is for you to evaluate the contributions made by each of your group members to
    the overall performance and success of your group’s assignment. In making your
    assessment, you might take into account factors such as:
    a. Effort
    b. Quantity of contribution
    c. Quality of contribution
    d. Meeting of deadlines
    e. Degree of cooperation with other group members.
    Directions:
    1.  In the space below, write the names of all group members (including yourself). You
    should omit anyone who was part of your group initially but dropped out of the course
    during the semester.
    2.  Allocate a total of 100 points to each group member (including yourself) so that the
    points awarded indicate your judgment of the overall value of each member’s relative
    contribution. Submit the form individually and directly to the course convenor.
    For example, if you have five group members (and in your judgment) all members made
    equal contributions, each group member (including yourself) would be allocated 100 points. If
    you award someone 50 points and someone 100 points, this would indicate that you valued
    the latter person’s contributions two times more than the first person’s contribution.

    Please provide explanations for ratings of 80 or less, and if appropriate, describe how
    you have attempted to encourage the group member to improve their performance
    (number according to the numbers next to the group members’ names above). These
    comments are reviewed if students appeal their peer evaluations, so it is important
    that your explanations are factual, legible and professional.

    For students who are given an average score of less than 50 by a majority of other group
    members, a penalty of 75% will be applied. For example, consider if an assignment is
    given a grade of 80/100. If a student is given an assessment of 40 by a majority of other
    group members, s/he will only receive a mark of 20/100 for the assessment task. The
    penalties that will be applied to individual students are set out in the following table.
    Average assessment made on PEF by
    other students in group
    Penalty applied
    <50  75%
    51-65  50%
    66-80  25%
    >80  0
