An essential feature of the report is to illustrate how theoretical constructs or models can be critically analysed and applied to organisations in practice. You are therefore advised to read widely. In fact, unless you have read and referenced at least 10 discrete references, it is unlikely that you have done sufficient reading. Beware of sources from the Internet (no Wikipedia): apart from reputable and academic references that can be downloaded through the Internet (commonly via the library catalogue); most Internet references are not considered reliable for an academic piece of work. Academic journals generally offer a better source than textbooks.
You must use the Harvard referencing system. This requires you to state the surname of the author(s) in the text of your report, followed by a comma and year of publication e.g.: “Kraljic (1983) states that….” If you use direct quotes, then the page number should follow e.g.: Kraljic (1983: 112) “The profit impact of a given supply item can be defined in terms of volume purchased, percentage of total purchase cost or impact on product quality or business growth”.
