Leadership and Change Management

Note that above table does not include the formative assessments and that formative assessments are
not marked.
Instructions for assessment
Summative assessment
This module will be assessed through an individual report on a case study called “North East Langley
Hospital Trust” which you will be provided with on the module Moodle page.
The report will be an organizational change development plan requiring you to investigate a situation of
organizational change, analyzing the multiple causes, organizational and social consequences using
academic and professional literature to support your findings. Your report will also include
recommendations to lead and manage organisational change, reflecting on appropriate leadership
styles, employees’ engagement and organisational development.
Formative feedback
The formative assessment is in two parts which you must submit in one Word document.
Part I
A Mind Map of the problems you have identified in the case study showing how these are related to
each other.
Assessment Brief Updated 2021-22.docx
University of Roehampton Business School 2/6
Part II
A written analysis (300-500 words) of the core problem/s you have identified in the case study using
theory to give your analysis coherence and depth.
Deadline: Monday 21st February. Feedback will be given by the time of the seminar in week
commencing 28th February.
Note that we will not provide any written or marks indicative feedback on drafts for summative
assessment at any time. Should you perceive any formative feedback such way, then please note that
it is not binding for your marking. Markers can also always change and you have no entitlement to be
marked by the module convener or tutors.
Instructions for Re-sit
The same assignment task as for the main assignment period applies to the re-sit, with further instructions
see below.
Re-sit deadlines will be published via Moodle. Visit the module’s Moodle site and check your
Roehampton email account on a regular basis. The school is not obliged to check whether you have
noticed re-sit deadlines.
You are required to improve and resubmit your original work as well as adding a further reflective
commentary in form of a 400-700 words Essay. You must resubmit your work using the specific re-sit
Turnitin link on Moodle. This additional word count can be added on top of the original word count of this
assignment, if you used the full word count.
The original marking criteria will still apply (see marking grid in Appendix) except that the 10% weighting
for Introduction will be awarded instead to your additional Reflective Essay section. That is, a statement
demonstrating how you learnt from the feedback and what you did differently the second time. Also reflect
how the module contents could be beneficial as knowledge of best practices for a future management,
public administration or advisory career.
If you did not submit work at the first opportunity, you cannot reflect on your feedback. However, in such
case, your Reflection Essay section should reflect upon a) how the module’s concepts are informing the
professions and open up areas of future empirical research and b) how the module contents could be
beneficial as knowledge of best practices for your future management, public administration or advisory
career.
If you were deferred at the first assessment opportunity you do not need to include the reflective piece
as this is a first submission at a later date, not a re-sit.
The Reflective Essay is marked based on the criteria of Criticality and Evidence-based Logic of
arguments. It is an independent writing task and no supervision will be provided for conducting the
essay.
Structure of the Summative submission and assigned marking criteria
Task 1 – 10 Marks
Provide an introduction to the report that clearly states the aim and structure of the report and
summarises the key issues in the case scenario. If there is data contained in the case scenario comment
on that – what is the data telling you about what the underlying organisational problems might be. This
should help you focus on the recommendations section.
Task 2 – 20 Marks
Iinvestigate the case scenario, analyzing the multiple causes/triggers for change and the types of
change experienced, using academic and professional literature to support your findings.

Task 3 – 30 Marks

the importance of culture and leadership in their roles in relation to organizational change. Discuss the
links between power, politics and conflict and their effect on change, using academic and professional
literature to support your findings.
Task 4 – 10 marks
Produce a clear and justified conclusion.
Task 5 – 30 Marks
Make recommendations to lead and manage organisational change, reflecting on leadership issues,
employees’ engagement and organisational development.
How will your work be assessed?
Your work will be assessed by a subject expert who will use either the marking criteria provided in the
section “Instructions for assessment” or the Marking rubric enclosed in the Appendix, as appropriate for
this module. When you access your marked work it is important that you reflect on the feedback so that
you can use it to improve future assignments.
Referencing and submission
You must use the Harvard System.
The Business School requires a digital version of all assignment submissions. These must be submitted
via Turnitin on the module’s Moodle site. They must be submitted as a Word file (not as a pdf) and must
not include scanned in text or text boxes. They must be submitted by 2pm on the given date. For further
general details on coursework preparation refer to the online information at StudentZone,
http://studentzone.roehampton.ac.uk/howtostudy/index.html.

Marking and feedback process
Between you handing in your work and then receiving your feedback and marks within 20 days, there
are a number of quality assurance processes that we go through to ensure that students receive marks
which reflects their work. A brief summary is provided below.
• Step One – The module and marking team meet to agree standards, expectations and how
feedback will be provided.
• Step Two – A subject expert will mark your work using the criteria provided in the assessment
brief.
• Step Three – A moderation meeting takes place where all members of the teaching and marking
team will review the marking of others to confirm whether they agree with the mark and feedback
