Project #30924 - Small Business Planning - Human Resources Issues

This report is significant piece of work that requires a minimum of 10 unique sources of information and is to be 2000-2500 words in length (excluding reference list and direct quotes). It is designed to feed very useful information into your business plan. Ensure your information is contemporary (no more than 2 years old in most cases), high quality (don't cite random web pages unless the source is very well known) and very relevant to small businesses in the context of your location (Australia, Malaysia, Mauritius etc). Your report will take into account the backbone principle you will learn about (that every decision is a trade-off between cashflow and benefit at start-up). Therefore your report must conclude with a set of implementation recommendations of the likely cost (be specific-state the $ value) of your recommendations. As part of this process, you are required to participate in leading a discussion in the tutorial of the alloted seminar on this topic. All students attempting the same topic will act as an expert panel in tutorials that will explain the value of their research and the class will ask questions of to inform their own knowledge on the topic. Your apparent mastery of the topic will have an impact upon your grade (see rubric in Blackboard). If you are not present to discuss your topic obviously this will harm your grade.

 

The available topics are:

Write a report that updates our knowledge on the latest research and practice on small business start-up tactics and strategy (NOT on larger more established firm strategies!), related to one of these chapters in your textbook:

1. 2. 3. 4. 5.

Marketing. (Chapter 12) due and discussed week 10

ICT as a business Tool. (Chapter 16) due and discussed week 10

Human Resource Issues. (Chapter 14) due and Discussed week 11

Operations Management. (Chapter 13) due and discussed week 11

Legal Issues.(Chapter 9) due and discussed week 12

Remember to focus your research, writing and advice on things that will improve a start-up business plan like the one you have to write. Please do not repeat what we cover in the texbook or lecture notes, that is wasted wordcount, build upon it to tell us something new, or at least give as more detail, context and currency.

 

For example, if you wanted to discuss operations management you are not to actually do the blueprint for your plan (since that will be assessed in the plan), you would research other ways of creating a service design/process suitable for a start-up. Equally, don't use the risk assessment methods or templates in the textbook or class exercise, research other additional/better/newer ways to do this that are suitable for a start-up. Read the rubric (it is available online) for how your marks will be gained. To get very high marks it is important for you to gather some primary data by speaking with real people about your topic (owners, customers, employees or advisors) as well as doing a good balanced literature search. You should also ensure your research is global, multicultural and mindful of local context of the scenario. Example: It may well be the case that in America employees in professional careers are very individualistic and extrinsically motivated (hence financial rewards dominate), but is that also true of the focal community that your business will start in (rural WA, Miri, Mauritius...)?

 

Topic selection will be by ballot in WEEK ONE tutorial (so don't miss this class!) with equal numbers of each topic in each class required. If you are unhappy with the topic you draw, then you are free to swap with any other member of YOUR group (not other groups).
