IMP 1 Assessment Brief
The Integrated Management Project (IMP)
How the Unit works
IMP – spans across two semesters and the feedback is formative in IMP1.
There are two submissions in IMP1 :
1. The first submission is a short proposal of 350-500 words which identifies
and describes a current workplace problem or issue; theories, tools and
techniques available to provide a business solution; and how the various
parts of the business / organisation come into play, i.e. the integrated nature
of the problem is critical here.
This means drawing on your previous and current units in your MBA –
Leading and Managing People, Leadership styles and qualities from LP 1 &
LP2, Accounting & Finance, Marketing, Competing in a Global Context,
Operations and Project Management, Strategy, Entrepreneurship etc. It is
important that you should identify the problem within your own
organisation.
In-text references and citations are not required at this stage.
This submission is due on or before TBA via a BREO ink. The link will not
work after this date and submissions will not be accepted by email.
Your unit tutor will assess the proposal and indicate whether it is in the
right direction. This submission is not graded. It is, however, important to
make this submission, as it informs the unit tutor how you are progressing
towards your second submission.
2. The second part of IMP -1 is a 3000-word submission. You should
produce a report that:
Identifies an issue in your organisation that has multiple and varied
approaches to its resolution. The issue need not be one of failure
but may be a challenge facing an organisation. This should be
current or impending but not a past issue. You will identify and
integrate a range of theories and techniques drawn from multiple
appropriate disciplines from your MBA in the creation of
IMP 1 Assessment Brief
appropriate solutions.
So, how will you approach this assessment?
Answer: By elaborating on the proposal and addressing the areas that the
unit tutor has indicated in the feedback to your proposal. Explain which
theories, tools and techniques are being used and justify their choices.
Also, explore the approaches to manage the change that you are going to
recommend – Hard and Soft methodologies. Remember the integrated
nature of the problem is critical here.
In-text references and citations are required at this stage.
Once you have framed the problem you will identify and discuss theories,
models and paradigms related to the problem. Make sure that you look at
the problem from different points of view and relate them to your learning
from as many different units of the MBA. For example:
• People – LMP, LP, MCI – how does your problem/ solution impact on the
team & company? Performance, leadership, managing
creativity/innovation etc.
• Financial aspect – AfL – How will your solution improve/ impact positively
on the financial aspect of the company?
• Marketing – How does your problem/solution impact on the marketing
dimension?
• Strategy – From the Strategy unit (Business Strategy) TCGC (locating
your problem / organisation within the wider context of global business/
sector – macro-environmental impact – PESTEL, etc.) or business models
and strategies from the unit on Entrepreneurship and Small Business
• Operations Management – How does the problem/solution impact on the
supply chain, procurement and operational management issues?
• Project management – Consider the models for managing change and
other project management theories or models. Can any of these be
applied to your problem area? You may use the soft and hard systems
approach within this context. Is there any other approach that would be
IMP 1 Assessment Brief
appropriate? If so, present it (with appropriate referencing) and explain
how and why it is more suitable to the task at hand.
This is not an exhaustive list and you may want to broaden the range of
theories as you see fit. Your final choice will also be selective to make sure
the integrated approach is relevant. You should justify the selection.
Again, the unit tutor will be assessing the submission and indicating broadly
whether it is headed in the right direction. This is not a graded submission.
It is, however, critical that all students make this submission as it ensures
that they are well on track to have worked on a substantial part of the unit’s
final assessment.
This submission is due on or before TBA via a BREO ink.
The link will not work after this date and submissions will not be accepted
by email.
