reviewing data and information, designing potential solutions to problems,
planning, and applying information. In addition, the Case Study approach will

and assessing and adjudicating on such data.

An Individual Case Study Report with a weighting of 100% (upper word limit
3000 words NCG/for CMI 3500 words) to meet learning outcomes 1, 2 & 3.
