Option 2 is directed at students with commercial experience and those who have access to a suitable organisation.

Whilst the questions states ‘to manage an innovation project’ we appreciate that due to time constraints and organisational access, it would be quite acceptable if students assumed the role of a consultant, team play, or observer. If student are unsure then they are encouraged to liaise with their tutor.

This task requires students to document a key challenge an organisation is experiencing whilst implementing an innovation project. It is recognized that whilst a student will identify a core issue there will no doubt be a series of symptomatic issues which will also need to be addressed.
