Indicative Content
Indicative content
Introductory sessions and a series of workshops will be conducted on the topics relating to the specific project that is being undertaken, e.g. for an Enterprise project these workshops will introduce creative thinking techniques and opportunity recognition. A business project will form the basis for learning in the module. The project will consist of a number of components/tasks and these will be the fundamental learning blocks of the module. The tasks are carefully chosen to ensure the students meet the learning outcomes of the module. The tasks will be of variable lengths, ranging from one to several weeks, dependent on the task and the specific project. Tasks will cover a range of business disciplines, will demand specific knowledge and will enable the student to develop a relevant skill set. Each task will include the time for researching, planning, organising, decision-making, implementing, analysing and assessing. Tasks may be group or individually-based.
Various resources will be made available to learners. These will vary according to the project being undertaken.
