This week you will start working on your Final Project for this module. You are expected to use diverse sources of information and to carry out an original analysis rather than summarise or rehash existing work. You are encouraged to use situations and data from your own experience where possible.
The purpose of the Final Project is to apply the concepts and techniques of the module to the development of a detailed proposal for a performance management system for your own organisation or one you know well. If you do not have an organisation you can use for this purpose, you will need to choose one that publishes enough information about itself on the Web for you to be able to use it as a basis for your project.
Your task for Week 5 is to prepare and hand in a proposal including the nature of the project, the sources of information you plan to use, and the most important concepts and techniques to be applied. You will receive feedback on the proposal in Week 6, which will give you time to make adjustments.
