What are the functions of management?

Assessment Task 3: What are the functions of management? (40% final project)

Length: 1500 words (+/- 10% excluding references)

Rationale: Why is this important?
Introduction to Management provides an overview for the broad set of skills and issues you need to be aware of as you manage yourself and others throughout your career.  This assessment item has been designed to help you authentically summarise what you have learned this semester by (1) analysing cases using material linked to the learning modules,  (2) create a professional development e-portfolio to which you can add throughout your studies, and (3) think proactively how you will use what you have learned to kick-start thinking about your career (reflected in the LinkedIn profile).
(1) e-Portfolio structure
Your electronic portfolio, or e-Portfolio, is a collection of artefacts that can help you develop new or deeper learning about the topics we have covered this semester. e-Portfolios can be shared with others and used to collect cases exemplifying your learning throughout your career as a student at RMIT.  These examples will prove helpful when applying for a job.
Whereas e-Portfolios for Accountants or Nursing students will collect cases of clients or patients they have treated, and provide a handy reference library for their future practice, your e-Portfolio as a Business Student has a similar purpose – with a twist.  Your e-Portfolio is a library of cases with learnings you want to refer to in your future business career.
Each section of your e-portfolio should include a link to your artefact, followed by a short statement about why you have chosen that artefact: sample e-portfolio.
 (Links to an external site.)
What is an artefact?
An artefact is something (written, audio, visual) that represents some part of your learning. You will have four artefacts in your e-Portfolio:

  • You will choose (2) two cases from the selection provided in Canvas (see suggestions below).  You must choose two cases from differentCourse Themes.  For example, you cannot pick two cases from Module/Theme 2.
  • You will choose (1) micro-credential from the three provided in Canvas (In the Modules tab to the left)
  • You will include information (1) for your LinkedIn profile (populated according to the specifications below)

Why do I need to use artefacts to create an e-Portfolio?
Artefacts are evidence on which you will write a report.  You can also use and add to your e-Portfolio throughout your UG degree and potentially into the job market.
sample e-portfolio is provided for your reference.
Recommended cases (pick two cases from different Modules: e.g., 1 & 2, 1 & 3, or 2 & 3)
Module 1: Management Work

Module 2: Managing in Organisations

Module 3: The Functions of Management

Micro Credentials
Available micro credentials are linked HERE
LinkedIn Profile
As part of your e-portfolio, you must fill in your LinkedIn profile with:

  • a personal statement
  • your education
  • the Micro-credential you have completed

Once you have filled in your details, you must populate your profile by developing and engaging with your network by following at least:

  • 3 LinkedIn influencers
  • 3 companies
  • 3 academic institutions

You must also engage with your network by:

  • Liking or commenting on 6 posts on LinkedIn

Once you have filled in and populated your profile, you can compare your profile to the LinkedIn profile sections to be completed.
(2) Academic Report
You will write a 1500 word report that you submit in TurnitIn on the link provided in Canvas.  In the report there are six sections:

  • 1 Introduction to describe the overall structure of the academic reflection (100 words)
  • 1 section for each of the case study analyses (each case study is 500 words) – see how to write a case using RMIT’s instructions(Links to an external site.)
  • 1 section to explain what you learned in your micro-credential (150 words) – this can be the same text from your e-Portfolio
  • 1 section to explain how you chose to populate your LinkedIn profile (150 words) – this can be the same text from your e-Portfolio
  • 1 Conclusion to describe what ‘summary’ learning you achieved from creating the e-portfolio and academic reflection (100 words)

Some reminders:

  1. Remember to consistently link each section of the report to a relevant/appropriate management theory that  you learned this semester.
    Being specific,instead of making general statements, will improve the quality of your effort – and your mark.
  2. Support your work with academic references (min. of 3 academic peer-reviewed sources required)
    • For each reflection, include findings from relevant and current (i.e., within the past 10 years) credible and scholarly work. This could include material you covered in class, from course readings, research from your assignments, or additional research based on the three modules.
    • These works need to be referenced within the body of the reflection as in-text references as well as at the end, in your reference list. You must use the RMIT Harvard referencing style for formatting all references used in the reflection. See RMIT Easycite.
