Improvement Appraisal

The appraisal is based on the specific supply chain stage of the focal firm you identified
during the previous summative assessment.
 For this assessment you will demonstrate that you can apply the appropriate knowledge
(concepts, methods and tools introduced and explored in the lectures and seminars)
through research and analytical evaluation. Where appropriate you are expected to use
relevant and credible sources based both on key readings on the module as well as from
your individual research
 The aim of the Improvement Appraisal is to provide an overview of the overall supply-chain
of the company and the particular segment you are focusing on. Next, to identify specific
issues or areas that are impacting the current operational performance (the base option).
Within this section you should leverage theory that you have covered within the course, for
instance looking at common supply chain performance parameters. N.B Sustainability
related issues cannot be included within this appraisal
 Next, suggest a solution (the proposed option) that leverages collaboration with
stakeholders and/or increases the resilience of the operation through the mitigation of a
risk. Summarise the expected benefits associated with the change (including those arising
from collaboration and/or risk reduction)
 Next make the case for change by undertaking an Options Appraisal for the above two
options using the Value Indexing method.
 Next make support the business case for change by answering the question how long is the
change is likely to take and how much it will likely cost
 Finally create a Risk Register related to the proposed change case
 You are also free to conduct primary research in order to help you identify business issues,
though you must follow the university’s research guidelines including tutor sign off.
 Please bear in mind that the assessment is the development of an appraisal that can
be presented in the format of a Plan, but NOT as an essay, NOR as a report.
 A plan is forward thinking and is basically a focused on the near future: as such, a Plan
cannot have a Conclusion – only once the plan starts to be implemented can we monitor and
assess, draw conclusions and restructure the plan or proceed to further developments.
Therefore, you may include Final/Concluding remarks, but not a ‘real’ “conclusion”.
