leadership for public and community services

leadership for public and community services
2.A 2000 word written individual assignment which will be awarded a grade 1-20 (see below for details) and weighted as 80% towards the individual’s overall grade. The assignment for this module assesses the application of leadership theory and modules for the potential application to your own practice. This will involve you in undertaking a particular review of the different tools introduced during the module in order to examine and analyse the different leadership styles and processes and secondly; to reflect on your own potential to develop, consolidate or improve your leadership style.

The assignment therefore has three components:
a) The selection and application of one or more of the tools referred to in the module and an active review how the tool/s can be used to review, examine and assess your own personal leadership style and your effectiveness as leader.
b) Building on this analysis, write a reflective commentary on what leadership models and theories have to offer your own potential to be a leader and to work more effectively with others. You should explicitly discuss how the tool/s you have used can influence or have influenced your own professional practice.
c) Identify and discuss a couple of recommendations from 1) & 2) above which could be made to in order improve the experiences of those you work with or have worked with. It would be worth identifying who else would be involved in the recommendations made and how you could evaluate their effectiveness by involving others.

Please note that there will be a specific session on assignment preparation during the module where you will be encouraged to develop and support your ideas more fully and you will be given further written guidance at this stage.

Occasionally there may be a situation where students are not able to participate in the group presentation. Student should provide evidence as to a valid reason for this in line with assessment regulations so that alternative arrangements are made for them to provide evidence at a later date to meet the learning outcomes for the outstanding 20% of their overall grade.

There is no automatic deferral permitted on this module. You should consult your programme handbook for the requirements for assessment and for details of what to do if you are having problems which may prevent you from submitting your assessment.

Further information about general assessment criteria, ARNA regulations, referencing and plagiarism can be found on the module’s site on the e-Learning Portal. Students are advised to read and follow this information.

Instructions on Assessment:

Summative assessment of the module will be by a group assignment (50%) and an individual assignment (50%). Part A will be related to developing a prototype information system, which will be completed in groups. Part B will be an individual report of about 2,000 words. Details will be available under “Assignment” on the university’s eLearning Platform (Blackboard) during the latter part of the course.
PART A – Group Work (50 marks)

A Race Results system can help athletics/sports organisations to bring together their athletes, races and results details in one system to help them increase motivation, track performance and manage club operations. Collecting results from the competitions for each athlete has always been difficult to achieve due to the disparate systems used by the organising parties and bodies involved with athletics.

To date Athletics Club has been recording athlete information and race results in an Excel file (see document provided). When the organisation first started operating the Excel spreadsheet was adequate for their needs. However, as they continued growing the Excel file has become difficult to manage. It also does not allow the organisation to maintain records of race results in an effective and efficient manner.

Therefore, you are required to design a Race Results system using Microsoft Access 2010 which will:
• Manage athletes details more effectively by eliminating duplications and time wasting, and reducing the possibility for errors
• Provide all athlete and competition information in one place that is easily accessible and easy to use
• Find information about athletes’ performances/results through various queries/reports
• Ensure that athletes’ level of motivation is high by publishing race results
More specifically you will need to complete the following tasks:
Task Marks
1. Determine the requirements of the Race Results system requirements – record any assumptions that you may see necessary 3
2. Produce and describe a logical model of the information requirements – ERM (make sure you eliminate any duplicate data) 10
3. Build a Race Results system using Microsoft Access 2010 which encompasses the following functions:
a. Design all necessary tables and establish the relationships in Microsoft Access 2010 10
b. Create a report that counts the number of athletes who have competed 3
c. Count all the events entered by athletes in the month of October (group by race) 3
d. Create a summary report showing all the races/results that have been recorded for a specific athlete listed in chronological order 3
e. A list of all competing athletes who are not English Athletics (EA) registered (including their results information) 3
f. List all athletes who have joined the club in the last 10 years – show their best result/performance details (based on their race position) 3
g. For all North East Harrier League (NEHL) races show the details of the runners – additionally if they are considered a veteran runner (they are over 35 years old on the day of the race) 4
h. Design an attractive input screen for race results as well as input screens for athlete and race event details 8
Submission

You need to submit your answers to tasks 1 and 2 (including screenshots of queries, forms and reports designed) in the form of a written report with a maximum of 1,000 words. On USB/CD/DVD you submit your answers to task 3.

Peer Evaluation

As a part of your group assignment, please evaluate yourself as well as all your group members. On a scale of 0 to 10, please give every member a score (as 10 being the best). Your evaluations must be submitted through e-mail to your seminar/workshop tutor (subject line to be: BM0245 – Peer Evaluation) before noon on December 11, 2015. If you choose not to submit the form, it will be assumed that you evaluate all members equally and therefore all members receive the same mark for your group assignment.
The simple average of these evaluations will be used to create a weight, expressed as a proportion (a whole number ranging from 0 to 1). If the average of the evaluations given to you is 8/10, then, your weight becomes .8 and we apply this weight to the group mark to derive your final mark for the group part. If the group mark is 100/100, for example, and your weight is .8 then you will receive 80/100 for the group part of the assignment. Thus, it is important to contribute to the team.

PART B – Individual Report (50 marks)

You are required to act as a consultant for an organisation who has contracted you to provide your advice and recommendations on the choice and implementation of an information management system. The chosen area must be one covered in the module lectures and seminars this year e.g. BI, Enterprise IS, Social Media, E-business etc. You must present your findings to the organisation in the form of a 2000 word report, advising them on some of the potential choices and the key benefits for the organisation.
More specifically we will expect you to advise the organisation on the following aspects:

• System design versus System Acquisition
• Implementation issues involved
• Management of the IS change
• Global issues for consideration

You may choose the organisation that you do this work for, although you should discuss your choice with a tutor before starting your work. The organisation can be of any type and from any sector; public, private or voluntary, or an SME; and you may focus on a distinct area of the organisation if you so wish – such as sales, marketing, operations, strategic planning, disaster planning, command and control or other functional areas. You need to make this clear at the beginning of the report.

Your report must include critical evaluation of relevant theory to support the solutions you recommend and should therefore include reference to a wide range of sources, including academic journals and books, industry websites and white papers.

Word limits and penalties for assignments

If the assignment is within +10% of the stated word limit no penalty will apply.

The word count is to be declared on the front page of your assignment and the assignment cover sheet. The word count does not include:

If this word count is falsified, students are reminded that under ARNA page 30 Section 3.4 this will be regarded as academic misconduct.

If the word limit of the full assignment exceeds the +10% limit, 10% of the mark provisionally awarded to the assignment will be deducted. For example: if the assignment is worth 70 marks but is above the word limit by more than 10%, a penalty of 7 marks will be imposed, giving a final mark of 63.

Students are advised that they may be asked to submit an electronic version of their assignment.

Time limits and penalties for presentations

The time allocated for the presentation must be adhered to. At the end of this time, the presentation will be stopped and will be marked based on what has been delivered within the time limit.

Responsibility to Protect (R2P)

Responsibility to Protect (R2P)
A maximum 4,000 word essay (this includes sources) is needed based around this topic:
The purpose of this essay is to assess the merits and limits to R2P based on the thesis I am trying to go with below.

The Responsibility to Protect (R2P): Is R2P a weapon used by the West (meaning America and its allies) to enforce western imperialism or is it a doctrine of longevity meant to service human security? Use the 2011 War in Libya as a case study

Here are some of the things I am looking to be addressed:

The overall idea of R2P – including how it was created and introduced
Then a critical analysis of R2P:
Is there selective application of the doctrine?
What’s the idea of R2P being utilized by the West (NATO)
Is it problematic that R2P should be used universally?
Include a critique of how, when, and why it is utilized and why that matters
Talk about the lack of consensus in utilizing R2P due to issues around state sovereignty
Talk about how the application of the doctrine is limited and uneven
Focus on the War in Libya in 2011 and tie it into R2P: how NATO use R2P for the first time to justify intervention into Libya
Talk about how R2P seems better on paper then it practice
Talk about he future of R2P, and how it can be seen more than just a ploy for western imperialism but as a great doctrine for human security and protection.
