This capstone unit provides students with the opportunity to scope a business challenge, and though considered research, provide a solid foundation to identify priorities for decision-making in the context of a small medium enterprise. Students will develop a proposal for the growth of an existing small business entity. Along the way, students will be able to demonstrate their ability to research the issues at hand, identify different solutions, taking into account personal, team and societal issues/challenges so that a recommendation/solution can be proposed. This will require students to utilise their skills in accounting, economics, finance, business process management, marketing, and business communication to develop a coherent and aligned business plan and resourcing strategies that contributes to business growth in a dynamic, global business environment. Students will be required to explain and justify their decisions. Business decision-making is underpinned by ethics and cultural understanding, and students will identify and reflect on their approach to decision-making and how they perceive business success in this context.
