Assessment brief/activity
Your CEO has asked each departmental head to undertake a critical review of their systems, processes
and practices as part of a major organisational change agenda. You have been asked to review an area of
HR practice and present a business report to key stakeholders with recommendations for improving
practice. To provide the basis for your report, you have been asked to conduct a critical review of
secondary sources relevant to the area of practice you have chosen. You should include a mix of narrative and diagrammatic forms, a description of your stakeholders and their needs from this report.
You should:
  • Select an area of HR practice and justify your choice
  • Undertake a critical review of three secondary sources e.g. research digests, academic and professional literature, online databases, and key texts relevant to the selected area of practice.
  • Summarise the stages of the research process.
  • Highlight some of the different primary research approaches and comment on the advantages and disadvantages of these different approaches.
  • Summarise the findings and draw meaningful conclusions from your review of the different secondary sources and make justified recommendations for sustaining and/or improving practice, including costs and time frames for implementation. Explain how you would present these to the identified stakeholders.

Further guidance on assessment method:
Your report should include:

  • Introduction (terms of reference)
  • Main body (headings and sub-headings – these could be for each information source reviewed). Candidates should use a mix of narrative and diagrammatic formats where appropriate to present their findings.
  • Conclusion (including recommendations for change)
  • Reference list
  • Appendix if used i.e. information supporting their analysis but not essential to its explanation.

You should relate academic concepts, theories and professional practice to the way organisations operate, in a critical and informed way, and with reference to key texts, articles and other publications and by using organisational examples for illustration.
All reference sources should be acknowledged correctly and a bibliography provided where appropriate (these should be excluded from the word count).
