Description
Assessment task 1 requires the writing of a report. The report should be designed as a management
document that can be used to implement recommended changes. It should include a comprehensive
analysis of the current situation using theories, models and frameworks related to leadership and
governance. Students are expected to engage in extensive research within the academic literature
relating to leadership and governance. It also requires students to suggest practical
solutions/recommendations based on research and analysis.
Page 5 of 7
Details
The assessment item is based on the case study titled “Blake Mycoskie and TOMS” (pp. 59-60) of the
textbook: Leadership: theory, application & skill development (6th Ed.) by Lussier & Achua, Cengage
Learning. You should read, and carefully analyse, the case and respond to the issues presented in, and
hidden behind, the case scenario within the context of a professionally developed report. You are
required to support your arguments with appropriate theoretical discussion and references.
This assignment MUST be a properly constructed report. It MUST contain headings and sub-headings.
The introduction should introduce the report, thesis statement (main objectives of the assignment) and
include your argument. The main body of the assignment should present the evidence you have
collected to support your arguments for the questions you are required to research. The conclusion
section should restate your arguments, summarise the evidence and make a conclusion from all
previous discussions.
The assignment should contain a coherent, but necessarily restricted review of the academic literature
on HRM topics in question. The literature review should be integrated into the assignment and not be
a separate section. A reference list formatted in the prescribed Harvard style is compulsory. Further
information regarding formatting of assignments and other information is available at
http://www.cqu.edu.au/student-life/services-and-facilites/referencing/cquniversity-referencing-guides
This assessment item involves researching your assigned topic to enhance your understanding of and
utilisation of academic literature. Whilst you should AVOID using only textbook, the prescribed
textbook for the course should be cited in regard to broad leadership principles. You will be expected
to present information and evidence from, and cite, at least twelve (12) relevant peer
reviewed journal articles (absolute minimum requirement). These do not include other academic
references such as books, conference papers, and book chapters and so on. Although you can cite
these other academic references in your report, they will not be counted as part of the 12 journal
articles. It is expected that you find twelve (12) peer reviewed journal articles not listed in the course
materials. The quality and number of citations will demonstrate the breadth and depth of the literature
used to support your arguments. Your marker is interested in the analysis that how you have
developed from YOUR review of the literature and how well you use the literature to discuss the topic.
AVOID presenting a descriptive account ONLY of your readings. What is required in this assessment
is a critical evaluation of the academic literature as it relates to the specific details of the case study.
Your marker is also interested in the conclusions that you reach by evaluating the literature and the
case scenario.

Note: Only one of the available marking options is to be chosen for each criterion. Please be aware that for some criteria, unequal intervals between tick marks are used to distinguish the quality of the essay. For each grade level (i.e., HD, D,
Cr, P, F1, and F2), there are two (or one) tick marks only. This sheet should be read in conjunction with the instruction for Assessment 1. It is expected that Turnitin similarity score is less than 20%. Below 20% is the suggested level. It
is possible that you get a little bit higher level if you have a very long reference list. But if the higher similarity is found in the texts, it is unacceptable. Higher similarity score may significantly affect your marks for each
criterion as marks are given based on original texts and appropriately referenced texts only. It is suggested that you reduce direct quotes for other sources wherever possible. Markers will analyse the similarity score reported
by Turnitin case by case.
Attention Markers: At most circumstances, the tick boxes are usable; p lease simply tick one box from the mark options for each criterion. In case the tick box cannot be used in your version, please write one mark option in the blank cell

The report based on the case study titled “ Blake Mycoskie and TOMS”(pp.59-60)of the textbook leadership: theory, application &skills development(6thEd.)lussier & Achua, cengage learning.
“ Blake Mycoskie and TOMS
By age 29, “ Blake Mycoskie  had already started four businesses. He got the idea to start his fifth business on a trip t Argentina. “ Blake Mycoskie  observed that many people were wearing alpargatas ”soft casual canvas shoes ”, and he thought they would sell in America. But he also realized they were also many poor people without any shoes who had blisters,sores, and infections. So he decided to help.
Bake home in America, Blake got involved in volunteer shoe drive to ship overseas. But he realized that there was a need for a constant flow of shoes and that even a non-profit organization couldn’t be very sustainable through simply donations. He was also an entrepreneur by combining business and charity to help others and make the world a better place.
“ Blake Mycoskie founded  TOMS, which stands for TOMmorrowS shoes, in 2006. He developed the One for One business model- for every pair of shoes TOMS sells, it gives away a free pair to a child in need, but as with entrepreneurial new ventures, its wasn’t easy. In fact, Blake was told that he didn’t understand the shoe industry and that his business wouldn’t be successful, but that didn’t stop  Blake. To date TOMS has given away more than 10 million pairs of shoes.
Blake realized that he couldn’t just buy the alpargate shoes. They needed to be more stylish, comfortable, and durable to sell in united state. So with no knowledge of the shoe industry and not speaking Spanish, he returned to Argentina to find a local partner, and teamed up with shoe maker Alejo for help. Togather they developed a prototype and Bale brought 250 pairs home to Los Angeles.
Blake ran a focs group by inviting a bunch of friends, mostly women, to his place, he told them his story and One for One, and they discussed the potential market and price for the shoes and where they could be sold. They loved the story, bought a pair of shoes, and spread the word.
Blake went to a retail stores and told his story and tried to get them to sell TOMS, but he got lots of rejections. Blake would tell his story to anyone who would listen. He would wear two different shoes just to get people to talk him so he could tell his story. Blake’s first two big breaks came when American Rag agreed to sell TOMS and LA Times ran his story in newspaper. Orders started pouring in. so blake started the business on shoestring budget bu using his apartment nad three interns he found through Craigslist.
Blake went back to Argentina to give away free shoes and develop supply chain of TOMS shoes . blake believes that success is more than statuse and money and that its about contributing to the world and living and working on your own terms. He has personal, professional, and philanthropic success. Today TOMS gives  free shoes to 60 countries.
Blake has expanded his social entrepreneurship mission to include writing a book, start something that matter, to inspire others to contribute to the world. He also expanded his unique One for One business model to include TOMS Eyewear, helping save and restore sight for those in need TOMS Web site (www.toms.com) include the Marketpplace where people can shop for  variety of other products and contribute to funding educations. TOMS has giving partner to increase the charity, and it has given a million to non-profit organizations. To encourage social entrepreneurship, TOMS develops ways to use its platform to support their ventures. In addition the start something that matters foundation has begun to help innovators bring their ideas to life.
