Analytical Framework: 7Ps
Design Pattern Tags: Blended learning, Flipped classroom, Online learning Analytical Framework: 7Ps
Analytical Framework: 7Ps allows students to identify, describe and define key resources of a case study or product description when reviewing strategies.
The Analytical Framework: 7P enables students to identify the 7 most likely factors in most economic, business, marketing and entrepreneurial cases.
7P as a framework/guideline assists students to deconstruct a case or model, and also, to compare cases and perspectives. 7Ps is used not only to identify a set of factors but to also appraise and define a relationship between them.
Analytical Framework: 7Ps gives students the opportunity to scaffold their understanding and analyse of case studies for future employability.
Prior to Semester Decide on the case study.
Decide whether the activity will be part of formative or summative assessment.
Decide on the template.
Decide when the framework either inline or face to face.
Decide how it will be used either individually or in teams:
Individual use: provide template in Blackboard for students’ reading and analyse of case study.
Group use: establish an online Google doc identifiable for each assigned group of 3-4 students. This document will be edited collectively online (whether students are meeting physically on campus or asynchronously and gathering virtually). If working remotely students can also be encouraged to use voice tools such as Skype or Google Hangout to reach consensus through discussion.
The completed document can be discussed in tutorials.
In class Explain to students the value of the analytical framework.
Ask the students to complete their analysis individually or in groups. This may be completed online or in tutorial time.
Discuss the findings and compare the analysis in groups of 4-6.
Ask students to report their findings to the whole class.
Collect hard copies to evaluate student understanding of the use of the framework.
Conditions/Critical Success Factors
Decisions need to be made as to:
Which 7Ps are most appropriate and which graphic organiser (format).
Whether assessment will be group or individual.
Whether students will work individually or in groups prior to the tutorial.
Whether templates will be offered as individually down-loadable or in the cloud (group editable).
Whether analysis will be done before or in tutorial sessions.
