Your online conversations for this assessment involve critical thought aboutthe knowledge gained in the subject and its practical application to solving real problems.These management problems are posed within the subject topics, in two forms – elevatorpitches and case discussion activities relating to mini case studies. You will be able to practisethese activities in Topics 1 to 5.Assessable elevator pitches and case discussion activities commence from Topic 6.There are two parts to this task.A. Complete two(2) elevator pitch responses and two(2) case discussion activity responses,as follows:• two(2) elevator pitch responses from Topic 6 to 8 (5 marks each, total 10 marks)• two(2) case discussion activity responses from topic 7 to 11 (10 marks each, total 20marks).B. Submit a complete package of your work through Turnitin by the due date.Here are your guidelines for completing this assessment task.Elevator pitch responses (5 marks each, total 10 marks)Each elevator pitch must be completed in 130 words +/- 10%.Elevator pitch responses involve critical thinking on the question and appropriate professionalcommunication taking into account the context of the elevator pitch scenario.References are not required and should not be provided.Case discussion activities (10 marks each, total 20 marks)Each case discussion activity has specific questions for you to address. Your response to thecase discussion activity must be more substantial than the elevator pitch, demonstrating thatyou can apply knowledge from the topic in a critical way. There isn’t usually one correctanswer to the case discussion activities; hence, the scope for critical thought. The maximumword count for each case discussion activity response is 500 words +/- 10%.References are required: citations within the body of the text, and a reference list. At least twoprofessional or academic references must be included.Submitting your completed packageTo complete this task, you must submit a complete package of your work by the due date inMS Word only.

However, when somethingunavoidable comes up an extension may be possible. The following principles are used whenprocessing extensions1. For in-session assessment items, an extension request for up to three (3) calendar days canbe made by emailing your subject coordinator directly before the due date. In your emailplease state the reason why you need more time as well as what precisely you are requesting.Supporting documentation is not required. If an extension is requested in the above formatwith a valid reason and your request does not disadvantage other students, the extension willbe approved.2. For in-session assessment items, extension requests of more than three (3) calendar daysmust be made via the special consideration form:https://apps.csu.edu.au/specialcons/.(https://apps.csu.edu.au/specialcons/)The request must be made before the due date andmust include supporting documentation. Acceptable reasons are given in the SpecialConsideration Policy<https://policy.csu.edu.au/view.current.php?id=00298>. Each request willbe considered on a case by case basis. The request may not be granted. The maximumextension possible will be seven (7) calendar days.3. If you receive an extension, then you should expect the assessment item and its feedback tobe returned later. If you submit later than the extended due date you will receive late penaltiesas per guidelines below.4. Unless your extension permits otherwise, submissions received 10 days afer the originaldue date will receive zero.5. For end of session exams, you can request a supplementary examviahttps://apps.csu.edu.au/specialcons/. (https://apps.csu.edu.au/specialcons/)This requestmust be made within 3 working days of the date of exam and must include supportingdocumentation. Acceptable reasons are given in the Special Consideration Policy<https://policy.csu.edu.au/view.current.php?id=00298>. For medical issues, a CSU medicalcertificate is required. If the supplementary exam (SX) is awarded then your exam is moved tothe next examination period. In order to preserve exam integrity and manage the logistics ofexams, the timing of a supplementary exam is heavily restricted.How to apply for special considerationAcademic regulations provide for special consideration to be given if you suffer misadventureor extenuating circumstances during the session (including the examination period) whichprevents you from meeting acceptable standards or deadlines.
