Holmes Assignment help

Groups (of up to 5 students) are to choose from the list of topics that are based on the lectures. However, in this assignment students are required to do better than recycle the lecture materials. Students are to research the chosen topic in more depth providing evidence of independent research. The set of topics will be provided from which your group must choose on a ‘first-come, first-served basis’. Each group will deliver findings ofthe chosen topic research in a presentation in Week 6 of the trimester.

Assignment Structure should be as the following: Research Paper (worth 15%):

The research paper is to be structured and written as a seminar report. It, therefore, must begin

with a Management (or Executive) Summary within which you state in stark form (i.e. unsupported by argument) what you are asserting in this paper and you must do that in less than two pages. You can begin the main body of the paper with some general background followed by a description and discussion of significance of the specific issues considered. This introduction will normally end with a brief paragraph outlining the plan of the rest of the paper. The next section which could be divided into 2-4 sub-sections containing an in-depth discussion of the relevant issues based on the existing literature and/or data. You must provide in-text references to your sources. The last section contains a brief summary followed by a complete list of references that are cited in the text of the paper. Follow a standard referencing method (APA style or Harvard Business) consistently.

Suggested limits are as follows:

  • Management/ Executive Summary: ideally one page but no more than two,
  • Section 1: Introduction 300-400 words,
  • Section 2: Main body of the paper 2,000-2,500 words,
  • Sections 3: Conclusion 200-300 words,
  • References (10-15 references).

Presentation (worth 10%):

The live presentation of the research findings is due in Week 6 and must be organised as a business presentation. Strict adherence to the ten-minute limit is expected so the time should be carefully allocated to allow for a very short introduction on the broad topic followed by a few minutes allocated to students to present their individual component.

The presentation is primarily assessed on presentation technique. Your lecturer will make suggestions on how the academic content can be improved and that will only be assessed on the written report due in end of Week 6 of the semester.
