Final Assessment

You have been tasked by your board of directors to critically assess the impact of ONE important Environmental (“planet”) or Social (“people”) issue critical to the ongoing sustainable development of the organisation.  

You are required to prepare a report detailing and explaining

The chosen issue including its origin, emphasising and explaining its impact on and importance for the organisation

A critical appraisal of the ways in which the organisation is currently implementing strategies for dealing with this issue and other issues of sustainable development, including recommendations for future strategies to be considered by the board. Include in this a critical appraisal of the ways in which tools and theories relating to sustainability are or could be used in your case study

An appraisal of the ways in which the organisation’s senior and middle management is dealing with leading for sustainability and recommendations for development in this area with particular reference to the issue you have chosen to focus on.

For the case study, you can choose ANY organisation, public, private or not‐for‐profit with which you are familiar or for which you can obtain sufficient information to carry out the task

Ensure that in carrying out your analysis and making your recommendations you SUPPORT what you say by reference, properly cited, to theories/concepts of sustainable/ethical development and leadership. 

Apply as many of the concepts of leadership and sustainability covered in this module as you can. You should recall in summary the concepts you use, but do not spend long describing them – we are looking for APPLICATION of the concepts to your case study, not descriptions of them.

Remember, we are not looking for an essay on environmental challenges, leadership or sustainability, nor for a series of definitions, nor for a summary of the material covered in the module – we are looking to see how well you can use the concepts you have learned about to analyse the operation of your chosen organisation

Another reminder to use the Assessment Criteria (below) as a guide to ensure you cover all the critical areas for which marks are available.
