MAIN BODY

A strong essay must use the key themes addressed in the first part of the module to develop the analysis, namely:

  • Knowledge Management/Environment
  • Communities of Practice/Interest
  • The Challenge of Performance Measurement and Social Networks
  • Intellectual Capital

Organizational examples should be used to illustrate the themes covered in the essay.  However, the essay is not a case study; it is a discussion of relevant theory.

CONCLUSION 

Remember that a critical study aims to provide a balanced analysis of differing perspectives, and points of view, before drawing the argument to a coherent conclusion
