1.You must prepare and submit an original business report addressing the tasks identified later in this section, but summarised below.
2.Your report must analyse and evaluate the operations management of an organisation, or of a specific business unit/division, and draw conclusions over the extent to which its operational capability supports its corporate strategy and provides competitive advantage.
You must select ONE focal organisation as the subject of your assignment. Where the organisation has different divisions or a disparate product/service offer, you may have to select one specific area of the organisation for study (i.e. you will need to define the scope to be covered in your report). You may also find it appropriate to select by geographical region, or if the organisation has disparate operations, one of these.
The organisation selected should meet the following criteria:
1.It should be a well-known business – you will find more data/information on large wellknown businesses;
2.It must have a website that is available in English and produce annual reports in English;
3.It is recommended that your selected company be publicly listed/publicly traded on the stock market – you will find more data/information available on such organisations.
You are required to demonstrate your learning from the course material by analysing and evaluating the operations management of your chosen organisation (or business unit/division) in a report containing the following sections.
