Your task

You are required to participate in a group role-play activity and to write a 1000-word proposal based on the negotiations that you have had with your group.

Assessment Description

The purpose of this MBA653 Destination and Visitor Managing assessment is to foster students’ ability to work together to acquire and convey knowledge and ideas effectively to achieve shared goals in unambiguous contexts. This will enable students to showcase their collective ability to apply learned visitor and destination management theories and concepts from weeks 1 to 9 to a hypothetical business case within a safe learning environment. More importantly, the collaborative work will allow students to practise soft skills necessary for today’s tourism and hospitality industry.

Assessment Instructions

During week 8, your workshop facilitator will form the class into groups of three to four members (no more). Once created, you and your group will undertake the team inventory questionnaire to understand each other’s preferred working styles. Class attendance is mandatory to a) get acquainted with your group members and b) discuss your team working style by reviewing the team inventory questionnaire results of MBA653 Destination and Visitor Managing. Your workshop facilitator will provide further guidance on the day of your scheduled class.

During week 9, you and your group are required to participate in an 80-minute role-playing activity in which each member is to assume one of the following stakeholders’ roles and their stances:

StakeholderStance
Corporation representativeFor development
Indigenous representativeAgainst development
Local council representativeFor development
Local DMO representativeAgainst development
MBA653 Destination and Visitor Management

Once you have collectively agreed on who will represent the above stakeholders, you are to carefully read the hypothetical problem handout that the workshop facilitator will provide at the beginning of the class.

Based on the information presented in the hypothetical problem, you and your group must collaboratively discuss the problem’s main implications from the chosen stakeholder group’s perspective. In doing so, you will need to consider the negative impacts of tourism activity on the destination’ sustainable development. Upon the conclusion of the role-playing activity, your group will then be required to provide a 6-minute debriefing speech to the workshop facilitator and classmates by outlining the group’s discussion’s main points.

By week 10, you must submit an individual 1000–word written proposal based on the role-playing activity. In this proposal, you must provide three feasible strategic recommendations for managing visitors based on the identified implications from your chosen stakeholder groups’ perspective. Each recommendation must be supported with relevant sources of information and industry-specific examples that validate what you have proposed. These must be referenced in accordance with Kaplan Harvard Referencing Style and presented in the form of in-text citations and a reference list at the end of your proposal. Workshop slides, Wikipedia and other ‘popular’ sites are not to be used.

You must attend the week 9 class to undertake the role-play activity. For Special Consideration requests, you can review KBS’s MBA653 Destination and Visitor Managing Assessment Policy via the following link:
