Assessment Overview

This individual assessment requires you to identify an organizational problem.  This submission should be 700 words (with 10% margin) in length.

Assessment Guideline

  • Background/history of the organization.
  • Description of the problem you are diagnosing at the organization.
  • Check for originality using the Turnitin submission link on Canvas before the final draft is submitted.

Please note: Assignment 1 has two parts 1a and 1b. Where part 1a is only the identification of the company and description of the problem it is facing, part 1b will be a detailed report analyzing the problem using the ‘Four frames analyses’ and recommending solutions. Thus, part 1b would be continuation of part 1a. The company and the problem chosen in part 1a cannot be changed to complete part 1b.

Report Format Guide

The report must be written in a ‘business report’ format. The following is a format that can be utilized (but there is room for some variations):

  1. Title Page
  2. Table of Contents
  3. Introduction: Briefly explain the objectives of the report. This section may comprise about 5% of the total word count.
  4. Description of Company: you may discuss the vision, mission, nature of business of the company, product lines, competitive business strategy, their industry dynamics and relative presence in the market (e.g. local/global, % share etc). This section may comprise about 25% of the total word count.
  5. Description of the problem you are diagnosing at the organization – Please make sure the problem you choose and aim to explore is CURRENT which means the problem is still being faced by the company. This section should be heavily referenced (5-8 references may be provided). References for this section can come media sources, professional magazines, News channels etc. Please make sure the references are recent and This section may comprise about 70% of the total word count.


You must use the Swinburne’s recommended referencing style throughout your assignment and include a reference list, not a biography, at the end of the assessment. Please cross check before submission that what has been cited is referenced and vice-versa.
