Details of the task
This group portfolio assessment consists of both formative and summative elements, and requires students to work as groups collectively to analyse the case study of KUONI from a digital marketing perspective. Students must form groups with a minimum of four members and a maximum of six (strictly) and provide their groups with a name, groups should be formed by Week 4 of Term2 to their module leader.
Students have been provided with a case study on KUONI. The reference for the case is as follows:
Niessing J., Sedlacek J., Duke L. (2015). ‘Kuoni: Missing the Digital Boat - The Downfall of an Icon in the Travel Industry’, The Case Centre, www.thecasecentre.org
A copy of the case study has been uploaded to the Moodle site.
Using relevant digital marketing theory and industry sources, students should address the following questions in their group report and presentation:
1. Identify the key success factors that made Kuoni a market leader from 1906 to the 1990s.
2. What was the market landscape facing Kuoni in 2006?
3. Which of the three options would you have chosen and why?
4. What are important enablers when it comes to leading a digital transformation?
5. By the end of 2015, all of Kuoni’s Tour operating and travel agency businesses had been sold. What could Kuoni have done differently? Could it have “stopped the bleeding” in 2006? What would you have done?
The Group presentation (30% weighting) is due at 16.00 on Wednesday, March 17th 2021 via Turnitin, and the oral presentation will be delivered in seminars in week 9.
Students must submit the group presentation and the report with the correct front sheet to Turnitin, failure to do so will result in a group penalty of 10%.

Submission to Turnitin of Work Submitted for Assessment
Our policy on the use of Turnitin recognises the educational desirability that all of our students should enjoy the opportunity to self-submit their work to Turnitin (before submitting for assessment). We also recognise that Turnitin Originality Reports will sometimes assist in the identification of plagiarised work submitted for assessment.
Work that is submitted to Turnitin generates a Turnitin originality report, showing which parts of it have been reproduced from which sources. The system compares submissions to material that is to be found: on the world-wide web; in its database of previous submissions; and in its growing number of databases of published articles. You should not assume that a Turnitin originality report with a low similarity index is evidence that the piece of work concerned is free from plagiarism.
Our policy provides that a Module Leader may decide, in accordance with the policy of the School of Business and Law, that all student submissions for a particular component of assessment should be submitted to Turnitin, provided that the relevant Module Guide includes a notice to that effect.
Notice is hereby given that all submissions of reports for this Module must be submitted to Turnitin. Detailed guidance on how to submit your work to Turnitin will be made available on this Module’s Moodle site.
If you fail to submit your group presentation to Turnitin by the deadline you will receive a 5% penalty if 24-hours late, should the presentation be any later than 24-hours you must apply for extenuation following university procedure.
Please note also that only students who participate in the presentation can receive a mark for this aspect of the component, so please ensure you are available to attend on this day
The material that you submit to Turnitin will be marked. A late submission will receive a penalty of 5%.
Please be aware that the Turnitin site will advise you that late submissions are accepted. This is only for the purposes of allowing students who are claiming extenuation to submit their work.
Please read the material in the submission folder and make sure that you attach the feedback sheet as requested and save the document using the format for the name of the document as specified.
