Learning Outcomes Tested in this Assignment

Module Learning Outcomes: At the end of this module, students will be able to:

Through a reflexive lens, synthesise the theoretical underpinnings of effective management practice and skills

Within an action plan, critically analyse the nature, role and tasks of people management:

Synthesise and apply knowledge to practice of the factors influencing individual behaviour in organisations.

Reflective practice will be at the core of this module, and students will produce a leadership self-assessment within part one, a self-development plan in part two and will apply contemporaneous and contextual literature relating to human leadership behaviours in part three.

Assessment 3 Submission by 4th May 2023

You are required to undertake a literature review on leading human behaviours to deliver improved healthcare.

The assessment expects you to draw on the material you have studied through the module, using the literature provided together with your own research to consider how healthcare leaders work through the human behaviour to deliver improved health outcomes. You are expected to critically evaluate the literature you are presenting to argue its relevance to contemporary healthcare leadership.
The word limit for this piece of work is 1500 (+/-10%) words.
Please make sure that you correctly cite and reference all secondary sources you use and include a reference list. The reference list will not be included in your final word count. This assessment is graded and equates to 50% of the module marks.

Grading and marking Criteria –

Masters level Marking Criteria

No work has been submitted in the time allowed, or the work submitted demonstrates little or no understanding of the task or the subject matter.  This may be evident where the work is substantially incoherent, irrelevant or lacking in factual content, or where these shortcomings are present in combination such that the work as a whole is unsound.  Major errors of fact, or evidence of substantially poor cognitive or other relevant skills will also lead to a fail.Fail: Marks below 30%
The work shows some knowledge and required skills are present to a degree.  There may be appreciable error or omission of facts, poor structure, misdirection to the task, or poor conceptualisation or illustration of the work.  Evidence of analysis and evaluation is weak.  There will be indications in the work that the candidate is capable of improving it by further application to the taskFail: Marks in the range 30% – 39%
The work contains sufficient descriptive information.  There is some analysis and explanation with appropriate illustration and example, and some attempt to evaluate.  The work will generally be coherent and relevant, it will contain some useful proposals or solutions related to familiar solutions and there will be some attempt at originality.  It will be communicated clearly.Pass: Marks in the range of 40% – 49%
The work contains all the necessary contextual information.  There will be adequate analysis, explanation and conceptualisation, with appropriate illustration and example, and sound attempts to evaluate and judge.  The work will be substantially coherent and will contain relevant and feasible proposals or solutions related to familiar situations, some responses to uncertainty or ambiguity and some acknowledgements of the implications of change.Pass: Marks in the range of 50% – 59%
The work will contain complete explanations using most available information.  There will be substantial analysis; the ability to recognise evidence, use ideas, conceptualise, evaluate and judge in familiar situations will be clearly demonstrated.  Proposals or solutions will be contextually relevant and useful, with substantial evidence of the skill necessary to operationalize them in a variety of situations, including those in which uncertainty, ambiguity or change are present.  The work will provide evidence of originality and of useful knowledge transfer to novel situations.  It will be coherent and convincing.Pass: Marks in the range of 60% – 69%
The work will clearly demonstrate the ability to analyse accurately, reliably and fully, all relevant information; to use evidence; to conceptualise, evaluate and judge; to propose and operationalise effective solutions, and to show substantial originality and creativity in a variety of familiar situations or in the face of ambiguity, uncertainty or change.  It will demonstrate valuable knowledge transfer and propose feasible solutions for a wide range of situations.  Evidence of the ability to innovate will be present.Pass: Marks in the range of 70% and above
