The Developing Manager

Commonly used command words

  • Analyse           These tasks require you to explore the different aspects of an issue, considering the relative significance of each. You would normally need to explore causal relationships, examining how an action will lead to a particular reaction. This type of task would not normally require you to make judgements, but rather to drill down into an issue, exploring relationships in depth.
  • Assess            This requires you to weigh up the positive and negative aspects of something. Alternatively, it might require you to explore the important and unimportant aspects of an argument. You should build these strands into a balanced argument before reaching a final balanced conclusion.
  • Compare        Identify similarities and differences between two or more factors.

CriticallyThis is a term you are unlikely to have seen before on your Level 3 or A level
analysecourses. This is when you have to explore the strengths and weaknesses of the
ideas of a theorist or claims made by a professional body before reaching a final,
balanced conclusion. You would normally begin by presenting the initial idea and
arguments in favour of it, before introducing contradictory arguments. When you
present  the  arguments,  you  should  present  their  relative  merits  (e.g.  their
strengths and weaknesses) before summarising your arguments and reaching a
final conclusion.
DevelopGrow or progress a plan, ideas, skills and understanding.
DiscussConsider different aspects of a theme or topic, how they interrelate, and the extent
to which they are important.
EvaluateThis type of question will require you to give an opinion on an issue, which you
should support with relevant evidence. You should ensure that your response
provides a balanced view of the issue, exploring points for and against your
argument. This should lead to an overall conclusion where you summarise your
main arguments and explain how you have come to your final decision.
ExplainTo give an account of the purposes or reasons.
JustifyThis requires you to provide arguments in support of a particular interpretation of
or perspective on something. This should be based on the use of theoretical
justifications applied to normal business practice.
PlanConsider, set out and communicate what is to be done.
ProduceTo bring into existence.
ReviewMake a formal assessment of work produced.
The assessment allows learners to:
● appraise existing information or prior events
● reconsider information with the intention of making changes, if necessary.
