You may not choose an article that is part of the reading list. The focus of this exercise is on the development of analytical skills. Consult with the lecturer about the appropriateness of the article prior to starting the assessment; then conduct a thorough critique, addressing and considering the following points. Overall “message” or objectives of the study/article. Relevance of the article to: - The broad total quality management literature. - Industry practitioners. Gaps/weaknesses/limitations of the article. Note: Be sure you understand what is meant by “critique”. Critique is an accepted and established process of orderly scholarly debate. Critique is influenced by the scientific method of analysis. Critique is based upon an informed opinion, and never upon personal opinion. Informed opinion is accepted as being technical knowledge, personal or professional experience, or specified training. If you use other academic journals to inform your opinion, be sure to reference and cite them properly using the Harvard referencing style.
