1 Overview
The       assignment       is         an        important         part     of        this      module’s assessment     scheme.           It            counts  70%
towards the       overallmark.    You       are       required           to        read     carefully           the       brief     provided            and       address
the        best     as         you       can      a          certain number            of        key       areas.   In         order   to        prepareyour      arguments you
should   also      read     the       material            provided            in          class,    use a    couple   of         reference            books and         outside
sources,            and       performresearch            on         the        topic     in          order    to         supportyour      arguments.
Read     widely   as         much    as         you       can,      some    references         like:
• “Human          Factors  in          Aviation”, – Eduardo       Salas     and       Dan      Maurino.
• “Human          Performance      on         the        flight     deck”    – Don    Harris

Assignments      are      individual work that       should  reflect  your opinions. You        should  therefore
restrain from    copying            and      pasting material           from    the       internet            or        other    sources            in         order   to
construct           your      arguments.        Assignments      are       checked            for       plagiarism         as         part      of            the       submission

the        deadlines           and       rules     established for   this effect.
6 Length
In         terms   of         effort,   I           expect   a          3,000 word        written  report (6           to         8          page            report).The       3000     word
target    includes            headings,         main    text,     references,       annexes,          tables,  charts  and      any      other
additional          elements.
The       assignment       should  be        written in         a         business-style    report  format rather    than     following            a
typical   academic          essay   format. I          expect  to        find,     above  else,    good    coverage of the key      areas
based    on        sound/logical    business           arguments.       I          also     expect  to        find      evidence          on            the       use      of
references/ bibliography.            Because            this       module  is          part      of         an MBA Programme,      I            expect   students
to         use       tables,   charts   and       other     visual    elements           to         supporttheir      views    and       analyses,            since     these
are common      practicein          all         business            environments.
7 Writing           the        Assignment
The       assignment        should   follow    a          certain  structure,          containing,         at         least,    five       important            parts:1. Introduction
2. Objectives
3. Analyses
4. Addressing the           key       areas
5. Conclusions
References        and Bibliography
