through the online coursework submission system on the day of a coursework deadline, an
appropriate extension to the coursework submission deadline will be agreed. This extension will
normally be 24 hours or the next working day if the deadline falls on a Friday or over the
weekend period. This will be communicated via your Module Leader.

7. You are encouraged to check the originality of your work by using the draft Turnitin links on your

other students in this or previous module cohorts) is taken extremely seriously and will be
reported to the academic conduct panel. This applies to both courseworks and exam answers.
9. A marked difference between your writing style, knowledge and skill level demonstrated in class
discussion, any test conditions and that demonstrated in a coursework assignment may result in
you having to undertake a Viva Voce in order to prove the coursework assignment is entirely your
own work.

and make it available as a demonstration of your written efforts.

either for your current course or for another qualification of this university, unless this is
specifically provided for in your assignment brief or specific course or module information. Where
earlier work by you is citable, ie. it has already been published/submitted, you must reference it
clearly. Identical pieces of work submitted concurrently will also be considered to be selfplagiarism.

IN CLASS CASE STUDY
Case Study: (ILO 1 – 3 – Formative – Strategic Formulation for a Construction Firm)
The Company – ABC Corporation
You are one of the founding members of this medium sized construction company located
in Coventry, founded in 2005. Your company is classified as a medium sized company with a
direct employment of 125 people and a turnover of around £60 million, 2019-2020 and
profit before tax at about 22%. There are 4 founding members including you providing a
combined construction and management experience of about 70+ years.
The driving philosophy of your business is to deliver Value for your customer; operate an
ethically and environmentally responsible business; provide progression and fulfilment for
your employees while contributing to the betterment of the community within which you
operate.
You are a well-established design and construction company offering a wealth of very
modern and innovative experience and expertise. You deliver a wide range of projects and
expertise both in the private and public sector and your projects range from residential new
build housing estates, extensions, refurbishment and landscaping to restoring listed
buildings and charities besides industrial and public works. You are also continuously
involved in education and health sector projects up to a value of £3 million (single project).
A significant part of your work is brought in by the 4 founders in the areas of their expertise:
1. Civil and Structural design
2. Quantity Surveying, Contract Administration, Arbitration and Dispute Resolution
3. Building Surveying for public and private clients includes complete remedial works,
insurance, warranties and guarantees besides dilapidations
4. Construction Management, Cost and Project Management
5. All four founders are also qualified and/or chartered expert witnesses in your area
of specialism
The Scene
The Strategic Planning meeting held in September 2020 amongst the 4 founding members
was specifically targeted to deliver the following:
1. Set a vision for the company (vision statement)
Earlier attempts at this just said: – “we aim to deliver the best value for our
customers” which is not very reassuring.

Given the position of the company in the market today and with an eye for the
future, besides providing the much-needed direction for your employees; you have
now decided to formulate a new vision statement that encapsulates your
company’s grand vision for the future.
2. The vision statement will obviously be followed by a mission statement which will
specifically illustrate the following about your business:
a. What it does?
b. Who does it for?
c. How it does what it does?
d. Besides espouses the value the organisation stands for
A mission statement may also define the objectives to achieve the vision
envisaged in the first place
3. The third target is by far the most significant one at the Strategic Planning meeting
held amongst the founders, the brief for which is given below:
West Midlands is currently experiencing £1 billion worth of construction which is
largely commercial especially student accommodation, academic buildings,
residential estates, hospitals, clinics and infrastructure projects.
With so much built assets currently underway, the obvious conclusion is that they
will have to be maintained in the future to keep them in good shape and order.
The board of your company which includes you, is now exploring the feasibility of
entering the independent facilities management business. It is expected of the new
business to deliver at least 20-25% of the total turnover of the company in the next
10 years specifically targeting commercial built assets in a 40-50-mile radius around
Coventry.
Please note that this is a vertical integration strategy for you and as such will require
a diligent study and approach.
(CHANGE OF ROLE FROM THIS POINT ONWARDS)
YOU ARE THE STRATEGIC CONSULTANT
Your consultancy has been retained by ABC Corporation as the Strategic Consultants to help
steer them in their intended direction.
You will help the founders establish a well-meaning vision statement and mission
objectives besides take on the bigger task of advising them on:
i. Should they expand into independent facilities management for commercial assets
in and around Coventry?

ii. If yes; how do they go about it in a way to ensure success in their new venture? This
is the implementation and the feedback and monitoring stage.
You will be leading a team of consultants from your office who will analyse, evaluate and
formulate a strategic plan besides the implementation and monitoring methodologies to
help ABC Corporation in achieving its grand vision.
