Tips:
Provide regular updates on your Google Doc and ask Anthos to look and provide feedback; start by asking Anthos if the ‘premier research lab’ that you have chosen is acceptable
Use the report structure provided
Use as much of the material from topics 9 to 12 as possible. This includes Globalisation Strategies, Manufacturing-Technology Interface, Marketing-Technology Interface, Organisation-Technology Interface
Stick to the word limit in the body of the report (2500 words); attachments and references are not counted in the word limit. If you go over the word limit, make sure that any additional material is relevant and important and then put into attachments. Summarise what is in the attachment in the main body of the report
Make your report interesting to read (e.g. Tables, Figures)
Edit the report for grammar, spelling mistakes etc
Understand the requirements in the rubric
Use credible and current references where possible. If you use old references, indicate why these are relevant. Use the Harvard Referencing system
Do a rigorous and well researched literature study
Provide detailed recommendations and prioritise them (I recommend that you use the SMART methodology for recommendations: Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, and Time-bound); you can prioritise by indicating which recommendations are short, medium, or long term
You are postgraduate students- look for some original content, and use a creative approach
Be insightful and add value that goes beyond just stating facts
Do not plagiarise or get others to do your assignment for you

NOTE: The following improvements are required from the way Assignment 2 was generally done:
Use the structure provided
Develop findings, recommendations, conclusions
Provide some creative content and approach
Demonstrate insight which goes beyond just providing information
