Each team member should focus on one country. After completing

Team activity Students are required to be in teams of three or four (no more than four). Imagine you are a member of a team that has been tasked with finding a new market overseas for an Australian product. Each team must talk about Arnott’s Tim Tam Each team needs to culturally evaluate three to four countries depending on the size of their team (i.e. three members = three countries, four members = four countries). Each team member should focus on one country. After completing their evaluation of the countries, the team needs to recommend the country they wish to enter to market the Australian product. The most important aspect of this assessment is to examine whether the Australian product will fit into the culture of the selected country. Please make use of Geert Hofstede’s work to assist you in your analysis. The following website should prove useful in helping you arrive at a decision: https://geert-hofstede.com/countries.html. Notes: • It is recommended that one member from each group assumes a leadership role and works collaboratively with the rest of the team members in setting priorities, deadlines and expectations regarding the assignment. • Ensure you use the Team Activity Template provided on the student learning portal. On the template you are required to indicate all team members’ names and student IDs, and the section number written by each. • All team members are responsible for the overall quality and consistency of the work, and for the integration between the countries. • Your assignment submission will not be considered as complete unless you have provided your peer evaluation feedback using the ‘Peer Evaluation Form’ on the student learning portal. If you don’t submit a form, your contribution will be assessed on the basis of the evidence that is available: the appendix of the report and your team members’ evaluations. • Marks allocation Not all the members of the team will share the same mark for the Team activity. Before allocating a final score, the assessor will take into account the quality of each team members’ contributions as well as the peer assessment of your contribution, as evidenced by the appendices included in your team’s report and the peer evaluation forms submitted by your team members. Important team work assessment instructions The required word length for a team of three students is 1500 words (plus or minus 10%) or for a team of four students is 2000 words (plus or minus 10%). • Your assessment will be marked according to the criteria outlined in the assessment grading criteria (see Appendix 2). • In terms of presentation and style you are required to use: o AIB standard report format (including a brief introduction around 400 words, and a brief conclusion which summarises key insights around 200 words.
