Writing Your Management Project
According to Rasmussen College there were almost 360,000 jobs posted in the US during 2015 that required a business management degree. So studying business management can be a sure way to finding a future career. But first of course you are going to have to do the work and pass your degree.
Most business related courses will expect you to do some form of management research for your assignments. Your management assignment or a leadership case study will obviously need to be completed to a high standard and contain robust and well written research if you are going to pass with the grades that you are looking for.
Tips for Writing an Effective Management Case Study
Writing effectively to get the best grades for your management assignment is not easy. However, if you put in the work and prepare effectively then you will be able to submit an essay that will be worthy of the best grades. The following advice will show you just how you need to prepare and write your assignment on management:
- Preparation for your assignment writing:
- Always pay attention in the classes that you attend and complete all of the reading that is expected of you.
- Have a routine for doing all of your assignments. Have a specific time of day that you will always sit down to research and do your assignment writing and stick to it.
- Always do your work where you are not going to be disturbed; have someone quiet that is free from TV, phones and of course social media.
- Research effectively:
- Do not rely only on the internet for your research; not everything that you find online is reliable. Use only reputable sites and always check facts and trace back to the primary sources.
- Use your library to access papers, journals and other respected sources for your assignment.
- Take careful notes and ensure that you have all of the information that will be required for your in text citations and your bibliography.
- Outline your paper on management:
- Ensure that you fully understand what the assignment is asking of you; if it is not clear in your mind ask your tutor for clarification.
- Create a simple outline based around the structure of the paper you are asked to write. Simple bullet points of what should be covered in each section is usually enough to act as a prompt to guide your writing and prevent excessive rewriting later.
- Review your paper carefully:
- Edit your work to ensure that you have actually answered the question that was posed, that your text flows clearly and logically and that your wording is appropriate for your audience.
- Proofread very carefully; use your computer to spell check but do not rely on it as your sole method of checking. Ensure that you eliminate all errors within your writing. If possible have another person check through your work for you. Hire an essay writing service to do this for you.
The following quote from Ryan Kahn compares management and your education and is a great way to think about management and where you need to concentrate your efforts as you progress from your studies actually into management:
“One of the most important things I’ve found is the importance of playing to your strengths. I think it’s common for us to learn while in school that if you get an A+ in writing and a C- in math, that you should focus your time and attention to getting better at math. In the working world I find it to be the opposite; by putting your focus on those things that you are strongest at, over time you will become an expert at it. By outsourcing your weaknesses to others who excel in those areas, you’ll be able cover those weaknesses better than you could have otherwise. Trying to be great at everything could be spreading yourself thin and keeping you from reaching your full potential in your strongest areas.”
