Task Description
You will examine a potentially disruptive, innovative, or entrepreneurial idea that addresses a workplace or business problem or issue. For example, consider a real workplace issue that you are currently experiencing, or have been concerned with in the past, or anticipate will become a problem or issue in the future. Your analysis needs to explore the current issues in terms of what is not working well, a diagnosis of the problem that needs to be addressed, why the problem has arisen, and how it can be resolved. Perhaps you wish to ponder your frustration with the lack of progress in resolving a problem with a local business or organisation that you interact with.
You need to present a solution to this problem to demonstrate a disruptive, innovative, or entrepreneurial approach. You will prepare a proposal not exceeding 1,500 words and in the form of a well-conceived and written business report that:
1. Provides an Executive Summary which is a condensed version of a business document that summarises a longer report or proposal (e.g., What is the background information, analysis and main conclusions);
2. Reflects on the Background to the problem (e.g., What is the problem, and why is it problematic?);
3. Designs a Solution to the problem (e.g., What is your solution? Why will it be better than other solutions?);
4. Provides a Section on the relevant theory around innovation/disruption/entrepreneurialism (e.g., Why is it any one or more of innovation/disruption/entrepreneurialism? Draw on readings and concepts you have been introduced to in the course of your study in this unit); and,
5. Includes Recommendations (e.g., What needs to be done to implement the solution?)
