LGH602 Assessment 3 Group Report Hotel Leadership Plan Due Week 9/10 (24/11/2021) Page 1 of 8
Task Summary
This assessment provides an opportunity for you to develop and explore your understanding
about, and readiness for, leadership as it applies in a global hospitality environment.
Although leadership theory will be used as a base for this leadership plan, the emphasis will
be about providing practical leadership solutions for a variety of stakeholders, including
guests, staff, suppliers, and the owners/hotel management company. Leadership aspects
such as communication, ethics, sustainability, and cultural diversity should be carefully
considered, and a goal approach should be utilised.
Developing and presenting the written report in a simulated scenario to a hotel executive
team illustrates leadership capabilities and practical insights to hotel management and
leadership.

Context
Part A:
This is a group submission, so all members of the group are responsible for the final
submission and all group members will receive the same overall submission feedback and
grade (exclusive of peer evaluation). Therefore, you are required to work together as a
leadership team, as would happen in a hotel or hospitality environment.
The suggested approach is for all group members to contribute to the overall submission
rather than divide it into individual sections, although each ‘department manager’ will be
responsible for their own department and be overseen by the general manager who has the
final responsibility.
Part B:
All group members will be required to simulate a presentation of their report to their CEO
and Hotel Executive Team. The presentation will take 20 minutes and can be captured on a
PowerPoint Presentation (maximum 5 slides). This presentation will take the form of an
Introduction, Background on the issue, the Leadership Actions to be undertaken and the
Recommendations for implementation. This follows the format of the Written Report in Part
A.
This is a shared responsibility, and it is expected that each team member can demonstrate
their capabilities as leaders of their departments. Students should also be prepared for an
additional 5-minute interactive Question & Answer session with the Executive Team. This
simulated meeting will be assessed on their ability to demonstrate confidence and aptitude
in their understanding of the learning outcomes of the unit.
After your Presentation where each student will have spoken, you will be asked three
questions. Each student must take responsibility to answer these questions:
What leadership skills did you utilize as you worked together as a team?
What team skills did you learn as you prepared this assessment?
What was the highlight of working together as a group?
Task Instructions
In small groups of up to 4 students, you are required to prepare a 2,500-word leadership
plan to provide leadership in a global hospitality situation.
This is a simulation; therefore, students are to assume the roles of the executive team of a
hotel or hospitality enterprise of your choice (pending approval by your Learning Facilitator).
Your group will consist of department heads, chosen according to the situation you select,
one of which must be a leader (general manager). As such, the leadership approaches must
be considered from a multi-department perspective.
To prepare your leadership plan, you should identify one (1) crisis, ethical or issues-based
situation in a hospitality environment, preferably a current or recent one (occurred in the past
5 years). You may even predict a future situation based on hotel trends.

LGH602 Assessment 3 Group Report Hotel Leadership Plan Due Week 9/10 (24/11/2021) Page 3 of 8
Examples of crisis, ethical and issues-based situations in the current hospitality environment
include (but you are not restricted to these):
Medical pandemic (for example, SARS, MERS, COVID-19, food poisoning, etc.);
Terrorism and/or political unrest;
Natural disaster (for example, cyclone/hurricane, flood, bushfire, etc.);
Scandal or bad publicity;
Sustainability (for example, food waste, amenities, general waste, etc.);
Labour and workforce issues (for example, salaries, benefits, working conditions,
etc.);
Transformation (for example, a major refurbishment including temporary closure, like
Raffles Hotel in Singapore; or significant new changes, like major new technology
systems or processes, etc.);
New owners and/or new hotel brand.
The group needs to identify, evaluate, and analyse the key issues, and then write a
leadership plan across the hotel (including an overall hotel and individual department
plans) for your chosen situation, using a goal approach, with a focus on leadership actions.
Leadership actions may include leadership aspects of planning and decision making such
as communication, ethics, sustainability, and cultural diversity (but is not limited to these).

Part B – Simulated Meeting
Your submission should include:
The written report developed in Part A is to be summarised and prepared as a
presentation to be given to the senior executive team of the hotel. Each team
member will take on a part of this presentation. The GM will lead the team. It is
suggested that the GM presents the Introduction and then each of the team
members take one part.
1.
Introduction
2. Background summary
3. Actions to be undertaken
4. Recommendations for implementation
5. Conclusion
This presentation will take no longer than 20 minutes. It is a shared responsibility, and it is
expected that each team member can demonstrate their capabilities as leaders of their
departments.
Students should also be prepared for an additional 5-minute interactive Question & Answer
session with the Executive Team (Learning Facilitator). This simulated meeting will be
assessed on their ability to demonstrate confidence and aptitude in their understanding of
the learning outcomes of the unit.
Writing hints:
Ensure your research is referenced effectively and correctly (see below);
Write in the context of the global hospitality industry;
Make sure that you understand the topic and focus on the topic – do not drift into
irrelevant or unnecessary content. If you do not understand the topic, ask your
Learning Facilitator;
Follow a standard report format (see below);
The submission will be assessed according to the quality and depth of thought,
relevance and how effectively you have applied the subject material and theories to
the case study, rather than testing how much you can remember and how
theoretically correct it is. Refer to the marking criteria
(see rubrics and the end of this
document)
before submitting and conduct a self-evaluation;
Stay within the maximum word count of 2,500 words +/- 10% for the (excluding the
Table of Contents, Reference List and Appendices) for Part A and within 5 PPTX
slides and 20 minutes for Part B.

Layout and Presentation:
Layout and Presentation of your document is as important as your content. Your assessment
is designed to demonstrate your understanding of a certain topic, so it is important to ensure
that the layout does not compromise this. Both the report and presentation should be in a
form and format that would be acceptable in the business context.
The format is a report not an essay – and this forms part of your grading. Therefore,
students are discouraged from writing lengthy verbose sentences displayed in long chunky
paragraphs. Rather, students are to make use of the recommended table of contents as well
as visuals/images, additional sub-headings, tables, bullet points – aspects which will
improve the readability and reduce the wordiness of the submission (Students will be
penalised for submitting an essay format).
Referencing
It is essential that you use appropriate APA 7th edition style for citing and referencing
research. Please see more information on referencing here in the
Academic Writing Guide
found via the Academic Skills website.
Blogs, unauthorised biographies, promotional material and sensational content must be
excluded from the case study report. Students must fully reference all sources of information
with in-text citations and a bibliography.
A minimum of six (6) academic or recognised
industry references are required.
Please note
: formal academic referencing will be strictly enforced at Torrens University
Australia and Blue Mountains International Hotel Management School and any suspected
breaches will be formally reported.
Submission Instructions
This is a group assessment (see page 2 for more details).
To be submitted via Blackboard in a Word document – submissions sent by email directly to
the Learning Facilitator will not be accepted for grading and returned to Student.
Standard Torrens University Australia penalties will apply for late submissions, equivalent to
10% of the total assessment marks for each day the submission is late.
Submit this task via the
Assessment link in the main navigation menu in LGH602
Assessment 3 Hotel Leadership Plan. The Learning Facilitator will provide feedback via the
Grade Centre in the LMS portal. Feedback can be viewed in My Grades.
Academic Integrity
All students are responsible for ensuring that all work submitted is their own and is
appropriately referenced and academically written according to the Academic Writing Guide.

Group work and peer evaluation instructions
1. At the beginning of the term/project:
All students taking part in a group assessment should draw up and sign a group contract
using the template provided on Blackboard, in the Assessments section. This step should be
completed at least two weeks prior to your assessment due date. Your Learning Facilitators
may ask to review the contracts when deemed necessary (for example, when there is a lack
of progress or conflict among group members).
2. During the project:
Students should keep records of communication and drafts. Any serious concerns about
individual group member’s contribution should be brought to the attention of your Learning
Facilitator as soon as they occur or at least two weeks before the due date, whichever is
earlier.
3. At the end of the project/assessment submission:
When submitting the group assessment, you are required to attach the group contract as an
appendix of your submission. You are reminded not to ‘recycle’ (self-plagiarise) contracts
from other assessments. Sections on deliverables, timeline and expectations, in particular,
should be unique to each assessment or project. Self-plagiarism constitutes a breach of
Academic Integrity and can lead to penalties to the assessment or subject.
The group contract accounts for 10% of your assessment grade, as indicated in the
marking rubric. The group contract will be assessed based on its effectiveness in stipulating
targets, plans and expectations. It should be clear, realistic and appropriate for the nature of
the project.
A peer evaluation form is available on Blackboard in the Assessments section.
This can be used when a student feels there was unequal or unfair contribution from other
group member(s) which you would like to raise with your Learning Facilitator. You must
provide clear supporting evidence (e.g. records of communication and drafts) and email it to
your Learning Facilitator together with a completed peer evaluation form by the assessment
due date. Otherwise, the allegations will be dismissed.
If you have been accused of not contributing equally or fairly to a group assessment, you will
be contacted by your Learning Facilitator and given three working days to respond to the
allegation and provide supporting evidence. If there is no response within three working days
of contact, your Learning Facilitator will determine an appropriate mark based on the
evidence available. This may differ from the mark awarded to your group members and
would reflect your contribution in terms of quantity and quality of work.
