Question 1 essay 3,000 words

Q1 Critically discuss employee resistance and compliance to direct control and normative control in organisations. Consider this using research-based evidence of organisations in at least two different countries.

Make a plan based on your essay – below is guidance on the suggested structure and word count for your final essay. After the introduction, this is what you should write bullet points on in your plan (aim at a sentence per bullet point):

• begin with a single paragraph (the introduction) explaining the structure and argument of the essay (approximate 250 words)
write this towards the end of writing your essay– it can be based on the bullet points in your plan, but it can change depending on direction you wish to take

• explain what is meant by control in the workplace, make a distinction between the meaning of normative control and direct control, relate this to power and the employment relationship (approximate 500 words)
• plan – 3-4 bullet points – cite any references you might use
start by looking at material and reading in Unit 2 and Unit 3

• discuss direct control in the workplace, give examples of how it is used in organisations. Discuss resistance and compliance to direct control in the workplace, give examples and integrate and cite research-based papers into your discussion (approximate 1,000 words)
• plan – 6-8 bullet points – cites any references you might use
start by looking at material and reading in Unit 3

• discuss normative control in the workplace, give examples of how it is used or applies to organisations. Discuss resistance and compliance to normative control in the workplace, give examples and integrate and cite research-based papers into your discussion (approximate 1,000 words)
• plan 6-8 bullet points – cite any references you might use
start by looking at reading and material in Unit 3 and Unit 4

• conclude your essay by summarizing the main points, adding no new ones, in a single final paragraph (approximate 250 words).

Note that the word numbers are an approximate – the figures are a guide, not a rule. If you have more, or less words on one form of control, you will not be penalized.

Your plan should consist of no less than 12 and no more than 20 bullet points in the form of a single short sentence (not just a word or two) describing what you plan to say, in a way that will allow me to take in at a glance the scope, structure and argument of your essay.

You must include at the end of the plan a short reference list (using the full Harvard referencing system) including at least one book and two research-based journal articles (the ones we discussed and made notes on in Unit 4) – you should aim at having more references, so include as many as you can.

This is for a plan only. I will aim to provide written comments within three days. I will return draft essays without comment.

So just a plan, not a draft please.
