GLOBAL STRATEGY IMPLEMENTATION - 2020/1
Module code: MANM397
In light of the Covid-19 pandemic, and in a departure from previous academic years and previously published information, the University has had to change the delivery (and in some cases the content) of its programmes, together with certain University services and facilities for the academic year 2020/21.
These changes include the implementation of a hybrid teaching approach during 2020/21. Detailed information on all changes is available at: https://www.surrey.ac.uk/coronavirus/course-changes. This webpage sets out information relating to general University changes, and will also direct you to consider additional specific information relating to your chosen programme.
Prior to registering online, you must read this general information and all relevant additional programme specific information. By completing online registration, you acknowledge that you have read such content, and accept all such changes.
It is an unfortunate fact that majority of global strategies fail in the stage of implementation. Many inner organisational and outer organisational factors affect the implementation of the global strategy. Thus, it is vital for management students to learn how to implement global strategies effectively. The module focuses on a range of topics such as process of strategy implementation, and influential factors on implementing the global strategy.

|Assessment type||Unit of assessment||Weighting|
|Coursework||Individual Assignment (3000 words)||100|
The assessment strategy is designed to provide students with the opportunity to demonstrate an understanding of fundamental strategy implementation concepts in the context of global business environment.
Thus, the summative assessment (the one that you would receive a mark) for this module consists of:
• An individual assignment (3000 words).
Formative assessment and feedback
Some of the seminars would be dedicated to feedback provision on the student’s individual assignment. The students can make an appointment with the members of the teaching team to receive feedback on their assignments during the office hours of the teaching team. The feedback would be provided only in-person either during the seminars or the office hours.
Each student can receive feedback on their assignment only once. Two weeks before the assignment deadline would be the last possible date to show your assignment to any of the teaching team. Thereby, you are highly advised to start writing your assignment as early as possible to have a chance of receiving feedback on your work.
- Convey necessity knowledge and analytical capabilities to the students for implementing the global/international strategy effectively.

Methods of Teaching / Learning
The learning and teaching strategy is designed to provide a range of learning opportunities in an integrative way to facilitate the development of key knowledge areas described above.
The learning and teaching methods include two sections as follow:
• 2-hour lectures for 11 weeks
• 1-hour seminar discussion for 11 weeks
The online discussions on SurreyLearn would be the complementary method.
Indicated Lecture Hours (which may also include seminars, tutorials, workshops and other contact time) are approximate and may include in-class tests where one or more of these are an assessment on the module. In-class tests are scheduled/organised separately to taught content and will be published on to student personal timetables, where they apply to taken modules, as soon as they are finalised by central administration. This will usually be after the initial publication of the teaching timetable for the relevant semester.
