Support note:

Discussing the issues that are brought up will be an essential part of your final year study. What is the best way to approach this portion of the task? Answer: Secondary research – reading recommended readings and articles suggested in class or those you have found yourself, on IBIS World and journals/resources using Discover password. Apply the theory to what you have learnt throughout the module, based on the questions we ask (including your own) and areas you want to explore. We expect to see definitions! Therefore, have at least a few from different sources (that is each for entrepreneurship, innovation and creativity). All sources should be from credible academic sources and not from online dictionaries (for example, ask.com and or Wikipedia.com

– you will get no marks, if these are used). This section will come in good stead when you embark on the dissertationor research essay in subsequent years as stated.

When undertaking your secondary research (basically ask yourself the question who has written on this specific subject area? Do their views differ from other people? Are there any existing empirical studies/research? Note any hypothesis put forward? Do you understand what they are saying? Do you agree with what they are saying? – That is critique not criticize!

What do you think, i.e. that is, what are your own thoughts? Are there any practical examples that you can draw from? Why not discuss issues especially those that challenge your way of thinking or view of life? Please note your tutors expect current up to date references (unless when quoting a classic piece of research to make a point or introducing the topicarea).
