The Business Project Assignment Handbook

A. The Proposal
Submission : Tuesday 8th January 2013

B. The Project
Submission : Tuesday 30th April 2013

The Business Project has 2 elements of assessment which together make up the overall grade for the module. The first is the Proposal which is the preparatory stage for your project, the second is the project itself. Both elements are important and work for the proposal needs to start from day 1 of the module.
Topic Choice :
You have a great deal of freedom in your choice of topic. The only parameters are that your topic should relate to the financial world. It can be about accounting, money, finance, banking, regulation, markets – almost anything provided it has a business focus and some link to accounting and finance on a broad scale. Whilst primary research is possible (eg interviews, surveys) it is likely that the majority of the research you carry out will be from secondary resources such as published literature, reports, journals, databases – you will need to be realistic about what is possible in the timescale and also in the level of access to primary sources you may (or may not) have from your own personal contacts and networks. You will need to read broadly around recent issues in the financial world and link this to the other modules you are studying to identify an issue of interest. You will need to find links to academic research and carry out a critical evaluation of potential sources, then discuss this with your Business project tutors and your fellow students to develop you idea into a reasonable proposition for the full project . Your seminars will help you with this process and give opportunities to discuss your progress.

...Name: ONASHILE , ADEMOLA OLUTOSIN (K1001224) Course: RESEARCH METHODS ASSIGNMENT Assignment 1 The topic is the incessant labour turnover of staff in insurance companies in Nigeria using the Nigerian Insurance sector as the case study. The idea of the thesis project emanated from the business news the researcher often reads online in the Nigerian dailies as this spurred him to be interested in knowing why the Nigerian Insurance Sector is incessantly reducing in staff strength year in year out. Though, the he has had a little experience having worked a few months in the industry, but that is not enough to ascertain what the cause could be. Therefore, carrying out a research work on the frequent labour turnover in the Nigerian Insurance Companies and using the Nigerian Insurance Sector as a case study could be a perfect medium to discover what the causes are and how the posed challenges can be managed properly. Hence, professionals that had worked in the industry before and moved to other industries will be interrogated to derive facts and draw conclusions on what the industry can do to ameliorate this scourge of continuous labour turnover which is tantamount to affecting the level of productivity and generally bastardizing the image of the industry. Assignment 2 The research method that will be used is the qualitative means of research whereby the researcher will make use of voice recorder to get down the responses from a targeted group of the interviewed...

...The materials used by Rexam are either new wood or recycled products. The coating material on the paper that allows it to receive the ink and not bleed is an inputted product. All of these materials and their quality affect the product. There are no indications that the quality of the materials is being measured, to ensure the plant is receiving high quality supplies. It is also clear that the plant does not measure their inputs, but solely focused on their outputs. The outputs to the plant include the paper products produced.

Project Management 3yr Assignment

...INTRODUCTION: The purpose of this assignment is to: • Gain a better understanding of project management. • Understand why project management is needed and how it differs from other forms of management. • Identify the relevance of project management to the business and academic world of management. • Identify the role of a project manager. • Identify the purpose or relevance of a feasibility study in the project environment. • Identify all the stakeholders and identify their needs and expectations. Project management is seen as a rather modern discipline, however many of the greatest monuments in the world, e.g. Pyramids, Taj Mahal etc, could not have been formed without some form of project management. The art and science of project management has been used in many ways although it was not until the 20th century that businesses began to see the relevance and importance of this discipline. Its role in business began as external to the organisation, however in recent years more and more organisations have begun to use project management internally. Project management has become a vital part of many businesses and it is used in many different fields of study, from engineering, programming or IT development, research and development, product development, marketing etc. The aim of this assignment is to see how project management is defined, how it applies to the telecommunications business and how project managers and organisations can use project management to......
