Title: Critical review of theory- individual assignment
You are required to write an academic Critical Review of one concept or theory of strategy. You are free to consider any theory or concept used in strategy, but ensure that it is relevant to strategy and not another area of study.
A critical review is a process of evaluating the worth of a concept; looking at an idea in number of ways, such as from multiple positions, in an approach to examine its legitimacy. In this way, you are attempting to explore the current state of understanding about a strategic model or concept.
This is an academic piece of work – it should use academic references and should not be applied to your company in assignment 1.
A ‘critical review’ looks at what academics judgements have been, synthesising a range of insights to attempt to come to a point of understanding. You are not required to make your own judgement, nor are you required to show your ‘voice’ in the assignment. You are the researcher pulling together different thoughts and strands espoused by a range of academics. Therefore it should be written in the third person. What you are required to do is evaluate the academic literature on this theory.
A good critical review of this type deals with the world of ideas and questions and asks ‘why should we accept this model or theory?’ A poor critical review is descriptive and has limited reference to judgements made by others about an idea or concept and will tend to use real life examples. A critical review should have an appropriate introduction, a coherent narrative, a conclusion and supporting references.
You are required to submit a single pdf file electronically and one printed copy via the assignment boxes.
