MNG92100 Strategic Asset Management - Assignment 2 - Reflective Journal

The task

You are required to reflect on and write critically about experiences and ensuing discussions that impacted you during Workshops One and Two. You are to explain the links between these personal experiences and asset management literature, frameworks, theories and examples. As set out in the Marking Rubric you must support your analysis with citations from quality sources such as peer reviewed journals, government and industry publications.

You must analyze at least two separate experiences during Workshop 1, and two experiences during Workshop 2 the Fishbanks simulation must be included as must the VDM Warrior game. If you do not attend one of the workshops e.g. Workshop 2 you will not be able to reflect upon the insight you experienced and the available marks for the assignment will be reduced by 50%. Likewise, non-attendance of both workshops will result in zero marks and non-attendance of one day of one workshop will result in the available marks being reduced by 25%.

Please note that:

1.This assignment must be written in the Reflective writing style explained in the

2. You must reflect upon ideas and practices that you encountered in the Fishbanks simulation and the VDM Warrior simulation along with other experiences that caused you to revise your views on management of assets.

The structure


  • The Journal is to be written in a Report format. Thus, you will have an Introduction section and a Conclusion section.
  • The body of the report will be structured by you to achieve the best possible communication with the reader. Use as many headings and sub- headings as you judge appropriate. One format that has worked well for other students is to follow Introduction with a heading like ‘Important issues’ or ‘New concepts’ and then have sub-headings, one for each of the experiences that you are analyzing. Examine some journal articles and see how those authors use headings/sub-headings.


  • This is the cover-sheet that SCU requires student to place on the front of all Assignments.


  • The title-page is the page that all authors put on the reports and submissions that they write as professionals.
  • Contains a Title e.g. “Reflective Journal on Experiences Relating to the Fishbanks Simulation”
  • Contains the name of the author i.e. you.
  • Contains the File Name and Version number of the report
  • Contains the date the report was completed

Header & Footer

  • The Header must contain your name and your student number
  • The Footer must contain the Unit number i.e. MNG93100 and the page number. Page numbering commences after the Title-page.

General guiding information:

  • Start writing early
  • Ensure that you go and visit the library for assistance and finding the best possible journals
  • You must read widely and deeply
  • Focus on the current academic literature i.e. 2010 to 2019 but acknowledge seminal articles.
  • Reference peer reviewed articles where possible.
  • Please use your imagination by providing graphs, tables, charts, and images.
  • References, tables, charts, and appendices are not included in the word count.
  • Please review the attached Marking Rubric so that you meet all the requirements.
  • The English expression Marking Criteria reflects business requirements. Check your work, or have another person check your work, for errors in grammar and even those mistakes all authors make because they have been working on the same paper for ‘too long’.
