The Assignment Task:
Students are required to consider the air transport industry: airlines, airports, manufacturers, regulators and any other pertinent organisations. The management styles adopted within at least one of these organisations are to be evaluated through use of appropriate sources, specifically linking the various approaches to recognised management theory. Students should research the history of their chosen organisation and discuss how it has developed and changed over the years and how that change has been managed.

The report should include appraisal of the various styles of management adopted, how successful they have been and why they have succeeded or failed. Students should also present any arguments for organisations to change their style of management.


Students should structure their report to include a title page, an introduction of no more than 750 words and an appropriately titled main body of text, making use of sub-headings as appropriate. A brief summary should be evident.


References should be presented using the Harvard style, both in the text and references list; there should be at least five different sources, three of which should be non-internet based.
