Tackling Global- Challenges in Ethics, Responsibility and Sustainability

CRKC7025: Tackling Global-Local Challenges in Ethics, Responsibility and Sustainability Assessment guidance Post residency written assignment (summative)

Module Learning Outcomes: On successful completion, you will be able to:

1 Analyse and critically evaluate theories pertinent to responsibility, ethics and sustainability in diverse globallocal contexts

2 Assess the potential for leading and implementing sustainability and governance policies in selected sectors and organisations

3 Identify appropriate stakeholders and strategic collaboration opportunities for organisations and communities locally, nationally and globally

4 Critically assess the impact of current organisational practices on sustainable development for future generations MBA Post-residency written assignment

Following on from the residency consider: What are the main challenges in ethics, responsibility and sustainability that I personally need to tackle when I return from this module? To what extent could partnership and/or leadership of place approaches enable me to address these issues?

How has experiential learning from the residency informed my practice? You may focus on your current organisation, or your local community if you are not directly employed at present. It is important that you discuss what you personally wish to tackle, rather than analysing a company or a region more generally. Make sure you look to the future, not the past. Draw from theory and your knowledge of local conditions to develop your argument.

Ensure that you critically review and reflect on experiential learning gained within the Residency. Hand In Monday 3rd December 2018 Via the RKC Module site By 23.59 GMT Word limit: 3000 +/- 10% Up to 3 days late – Max 50% After 3 days 0% •
