Guideline word count
The written word, however generated and recorded, is still expected to form the majority of assessable work produced by Learners at Level 7. The amount and volume of work for this unit should be broadly comparable to a word count of 4000 - 4500 words within a margin of +/-10%. The excessive use of word count is not grounds for referral, however the CMI reserve the right to return work to the Centre for editing and resubmission by the Learner.

The following are excluded from inclusion in word count, if used and not required by the assessment brief an introduction to a job role, organisation or department, index or contents pages, headings and sub headings, diagrams, charts and graphs, reference list or bibliography, reflective statement drawn from undertaking the assessment and how this has impacted on the learner’s work.

THE ROLE AND CONTEXT FOR STRATEGIC LEADERSHIP

‘The role and context for strategic leadership’
The report must include well chosen examples, and make reference to an organisation you know well or have researched. To complete the report, you are required to critically appraise:
