Corporate entrepreneurship and human resources management

The company is Revolut

Students will need to make contact with the management of an SME or multinational company and create a case study or DVD of the case that covers corporate and human resource management concepts covered in this module. From this, the students are to critically analyse using at least four theoretical frameworks covered in the module.

They are then to create two questions and provide a marking scheme for these two questions. The case study must be no more than 2,250 words and the marking scheme should be no more than 125 words each – excluding referencing.


You need to achieve the group progress report file ( you have to complete everything and at the end of the file there are 4 pages “individual report” that are in double it is for two different persons so you have to answer for two different persons) and as well you need to do the workload allocation file.

  • The organisation must be an SME or have an international focus, it does not have to be based in the UK;
  • ▪  The data supporting the case study must primarily come from primary sources. That is, you have to have access to interview, document and/or observe the staff working in the company. It is advisable that you get permission from the Directors of the company before proceeding.
  • ▪  The case study /DVD must cover at least four models or frameworks that we have covered in the module
  • ▪  When submitting you must write who was responsible for each section in the case.
  • ▪  Students are encouraged to review additional models / frameworks not covered but are advised to check with the module leader to ensure that it is appropriate and at the right level. Basic business models such as PEST, SWOT are basic models and do not count as stand-alone corporate entrepreneurship or SHRM module for the purpose of this assignment.
  • Lengnick-Hall & Lengnick-Hall (1988) model


Work must be clearly referenced, including web sites and journals. At least ten (10) sources

must be used and referenced. Work not fully referenced will lose significant marks. You also need to include evidence regarding the database system and catalogues from the library. Even if not explicitly used, it should be referred to in the bibliography section.
