In the individual essay, students are asked to undertake analysis of two new trends in innovation. Each student will select two new trends in innovation such as Artificial Intelligence, Internet of Things, 3D printing, Big Data, Inclusive Innovation, Social Innovation, Virtual Reality, etc. and perform an analysis of the evolution of the innovation (technology) landscape of this area over the past 5 years. The students will have to analyse, discuss and present the two new trends in innovation and explain and reflect the impact these innovations have on individuals, societies, and organisations. The students will be required to demonstrate their ability to apply the knowledge/concepts (such as disruptive innovation, s-curves, and many more) from the lectures to critically discuss the two chosen current innovation trends by using real-life business applications and examples and analysing the main innovation technological developments in the two chosen areas.
Further details 管理创造力和创新代写
The essay should identify:
– Two new trends in innovation and how these and its unpinning technologies/innovation have evolved over the last 5 years
– The most important inventors, firms and/or countries and how these have changed overtime.
– To what extend these new trends impact on how individuals/societies and organisations innovate and operate.
Detailed instructions and examples will be provided throughout the course.
Students are encouraged to use newspaper articles, credible websites and/or blogs, academic papers, trade press to develop their essays.
The essay should be referenced using Harvard-style referencing and include any relevant tables and figures, clearly numbered, in the main body of the report and not hidden at the end or in appendices. The words and numbers in tables and figures, and the reference list do not count as part of the 2,500-word limit. Details of assignment submission requirements can be found in the course’s Moodle page.
Please note that your individual diary should be submitted as an appendix within the essay (for more information on individual diaries and the template to be used please see relevant section on Moodle).
When developing your essay you should consider the following points:
The Main Body: 管理创造力和创新代写
- Develop your key arguments and discuss different points of view3
- Support by evidence and reference correctly
- Use paragraphs to express your ideas.
- Each paragraph should have an opening or early statement which tells your reader the topic.
- Show when you are moving on to a different stage of your argument or new area by
- providing a ‘signpost’, for example, ‘However, Clark explains …’ or ‘Another view is that …’.
- Produce a coherent piece of work that progresses logically and answers thequestion
- Demonstrate that you have read, understood and evaluated your material
- Link the different ideas to form a cohesive and coherent argument
- Make clear connections to the conclusions that you reach.
Critical Analysis consists of process:
- Breaking topic down into key elements
- Asking challenging questions of topic
- Gathering evidence to answer questions
- Using evidence to construct analysis
- Forming reliable conclusions
Coursework Rubric 管理创造力和创新代写
A holistic rubric provides a list of assessment criteria together with broad description of the characteristics that would be expected for each level of performance.
Individual feedback will normally be provided via Moodle. Generic (class-level) feedback and grade profiles will normally be posted on Moodle.
Students can use academic staff office hours for additional feedback on your work.
Preparing your coursework 管理创造力和创新代写
- Please use this file naming convention: StudentID_CourseCode_QuestionNo. e.g.
7299019_ACCFIN4029_1. If there is no question choice, use 1 as the default.
- The file type must be .doc, .doxc, .xls, .xlsx or .pdf.
- Complete the cover sheet provided in the course Moodle: you must input your student ID (number only, excluding the first letter of your second name) and date.
- Include your student ID in your document, ideally in the header on each page with thecourse code and title, e.g. 2489545_ACCFIN1003_Finance1.
- The maximum file size limit on Moodle is 230MB
You won’t be penalised if you don’t follow this good practice on formatting, but it will help your markers.
- Use a Sans Serif font in black, e.g. Arial, Avant Garde, Calibri, Helvetica and Geneva.
- Use font size 12.

Referencing and bibliography
You should reference your sources appropriately and list these in a bibliography. The bibliography is excluded from your word limit. You should use the ‘Harvard’ referencing system, as detailed below for written coursework.
In the text, use the following referencing conventions:
- Smith (1999) argues that…. or
- It has been argued that……. (Smith, 1999).
- If you use a direct quote, use quotation marks and cite the page number as well as the author and date, i.e. (Smith, 1999, p. 4).
- If you have two items by the same author in the same year, refer to one as ‘a’ and the other as ‘b’, i.e. Smith (1999a) and Smith (1999b).
