Things You Should Note
You should incorporate the works of different authors in your paragraphs.
Your paragraphs should begin with topic sentence and discuss a single idea in one paragraph.
Use University of South Wales Harvard referencing style as guided by the pdf attached (kindly avoid these revisions since you have a guide to help you out, for journals kindly attach dois and working links (30 references).
You are required to use practical examples of companies (case studies), check the videos for more info
You are also required to use theoretical models, check how it has been done and incorporated in the case studies from the examples given (note the question was different)

I have attached the referencing guide, the power point with more instructions and the videos of the professor explaining what to do and the kind of case studies to use. Ignore any of this and expect revisions.
I have also attached an assignment done last year though the question was slightly different you can use it especially how the writers did their case studies and applied theoretical models in their papers.More Essay Samples: Next Post »Assignment 6: Observations
