Assessment ObjectivesThe purpose of this assessment is to provide students with the opportunity to consolidate all that has been covered in this unit and to demonstrate a deep understanding of both how to manage innovation but also their own innovation capabilities. The first task, the interview with an entrepreneur/innovator is specifically designed to allow students to develop greater understanding of managing innovation in a real-life content. The second of the tasks is a self-reflection which allows students to demonstrate the extent to which they understand their own capabilities in order to prepare for a future role which may include innovation management. The final task, the development of a toolkit, allows students to select and focusPage 2 of 9on those theoretical frameworks they feel will be particularly useful to their own current/future situation.Assessment TaskThere are three aspects to this assessment:• Section A (10% – 800 words) is a summary of an interview with an entrepreneur/innovator. The selection of the individual to interview is left up to the student but it is expected that they will find someone who is useful in terms of developing their own understanding of concepts of managing innovation. Students are expected to adequately address the following questions in this section –o Why did you select this individual to interview?o What insights did you gain from talking to them?o What will you do differently based on your discussion?o What advice could you offer this entrepreneur?o As well as provide a summary of the date and time of the interview, length of the interview, format of the interview (i.e. in person, phone or video).

In addition, students need to consider which skills and capabilities they should focus on developing. Plans for how to develop these skills should be laid out using the SMART framework (S = Specific, M= Measurable, A=Aligned, R=Realistic and T=Time bound).It is appropriate to write this section from the first person perspective (e.g. “I have identified…”)• Section C (15% – 1600 words) is a toolkit for innovation management which covers an overview of the models of innovation; Selection of two models for a particular industry sector and the description of the two chosen models.Based on all of the content covered throughout the unit and own research students are required to identify and briefly describe the key models and frameworks for effective innovation management.
