ASSESSMENT TASK 2
This assessment task will be marked out of 30 and is worth 30% of your total mark for the BUGEN1530 Principles of Responsible Business course.
The task requires you to work both individually and as part of a group in applying the Giving Voice to Values framework to a given scenario. More details are listed below under the heading Task Requirements.
You need to complete both the individual and the group requirements to pass this assessment.

GROUPS AND SCENARIOS
Your lecturer will let you know which group of students you will work with for this assessment task. Your lecturer will assign each group a scenario.

GROUP PRESENTATION DATES
Group presentations will take place in Week 9 and, if required, in Week 10 –your lecturer will inform you of the date and time for your group’s presentation.

TASK REQUIREMENTS
Individually – before working as a group
Read either “Ways of thinking about our Values”, “Giving Voice to Values: A brief introduction” – or both – which are available on the Moodle page.
Read the scenario your group has been assigned.
Prepare a written action plan. Place yourself in the position of the person in your assigned scenario: what should you say, to whom, when and how?
In order to answer these questions consider the following:
• What are the main arguments you are trying to counter? That is, what are the reasons and rationalizations you need to address?
• What is at stake for the key parties (including those who disagree with you)?
• What levers/arguments could you use to influence those with whom you disagree?
• What is your most powerful and persuasive response to the reasons and rationalizations you need to address? To whom should the arguments be made? When and in what context?


Immediately before your group presentation commences you need to submit your individually prepared action plan to your lecturer.

GROUP WORK
Before the presentation date.
1) Contact other members of your group and arrange some times to meet for group work. Your lecturer may suggest that group work takes place during scheduled lecture or tutorial times.
2) During group meetings discuss the scenario your group has been assigned.
3) During group meetings each student will briefly discuss their individually prepared action plan with other members of the group and the other members of the group will verbally give feedback.
4) As a group you will then work together to write a group script, and to allocate roles for your group presentation of the script including how you would work through the dilemmas arising from the scenario.
Again, place yourself in the position of the person in your assigned scenario: what should you say, to whom, when and how? Refer to the bullet points above for questions to consider.

On the presentation date.
On the date allocated for your group presentation, members of your group will role play the scenario using the script prepared by the group.
Your lecturer will ask three students (from other groups) to complete a peer report during your presentation, and these peer reports will be collected by your lecturer as soon as your group presentation has finished. Attached is a Peer Report.
When your group has finished the presentation, your lecturer will ask for the group script to be submitted for assessment. Please make sure you include a cover page with every group member’s name and student number – and the name of your group’s allocated scenario.

After the presentation date.
Within 12 hours of the group presentation you will need to complete a self-assessment report on your work as a member of your team. Attached is a Self- Assessment Report.


The Peer Report and the Self-Assessment Report will not be allocated marks but will be used as a guide to assist your lecturer.
