Each student will write a literature review of NOT more than 1500 words. The review should demonstrate that the student has thoroughly researched their topic. Students should use examples of business practice from the scholarly journals papers, conferences, books and professional magazines to support their arguments
The literature review would be on accounting software/packages used in Australia. The research would cover history, development and adoption, the current market size, identify the leaders in the market and what gives them the competitive advantage. Students are also required to identify the current gaps or challenges encountered by users or customers of accounting software/packages and make relevant suggestions or recommendations.
Research reports are to be presented in hard copy in size 12 Times New Roman or 10 Calibri Font and double spaced. The research should include a list of at least 5 references used in the research report and a bibliography of the wider reading done to familiarize oneself with the topic.
Submission: Hard-copy to tutors/lecturers assignment box and a copy of the report generated from SAFE ASSIGN attached to it.
You are reminded to read the “Plagiarism” section of the course description. Your research should be a synthesis of ideas from a variety of sources expressed in your own words.
All reports must use the Harvard referencing style. Marking rubrics are attached.

Other tips

It is recommended that you include at least 2 references, although more would support your argument.
As this assignment is related to evidence-based management, we expect you to engage with the academic literature. All references must come from journals that appear in the Australian Business Deans’ Council list, or from scholarly books or book chapters. The use of articles from Wikipedia and other web sources is not permitted.
It does not matter if your conclusion is the same or different from the answers to the Rynes et al. (2002) questionnaire. You will be assessed on the quality of your argument and supporting evidence.
Your presentation will be marked according to the following criteria:
Quality of Sources. The team draws on high-quality sources of information, including peer reviewed journal articles (from the ABDC list), as well as scholarly books and book chapters. The sources are appropriate for the management problem. Unreliable sources – such as personal websites and Wikipedia – are avoided.
Depth of Analysis. The team presents a cogent review of the evidence, drawing on research findings and theories. They are able to synthesise this information and present a definitive recommendation as to what should be done.
Implementation. The team presents a plan for implementing the recommendations that takes into account the particular context of the organisation, such as the demographics of its workforce. The solution they recommend is tailored, and not “one-size fits all”.
Organisation. The talk should have a clear structure, with each part of it outlined at the beginning. Each part of the talk should be part of a coherent whole. Each speaker has a clear role in the presentation. The transition between speakers is smooth. The talk does not run over the maximum time.
Quality of visual presentation. The visual aids support the speakers and their message. They reinforce (rather than distract from) what is being spoken. They should be logically organised. Each slide should be uncluttered, and not present the audience with too much information. The font size should be large enough for someone at the back of the room to see the presentation.
Academic standards. The extent to which you follow correct academic standards, including providing in-text citations (on the PowerPoint slides) and references at the end of the presentation.
