Group Project: Enterprise Governance Process Presentation

Before you begin this assignment, be sure you have read the Case Study.

Purpose of this Assignment

This assignment gives you the opportunity to demonstrate your ability to participate in a team project and to communicate effectively with an important group of stakeholders. This assignment specifically addresses the following course outcomes to enable you to:

• plan, build, and maintain systems that meet organizational strategic goals by applying enterprise architecture and enterprise governance principles, and

  • practices effectively communicate with stakeholders to determine, manage, and document business requirements throughout the SDLC.
  • the Final System Report.

A further objective is to provide an opportunity for students to construct an alignment between the staged assignments used for the course and IT governance processes used in organizations.

Assignment

The case study used in this class, Precision Electronic Parts (PEP), Inc., describes the IT Steering Committee (ITSC) that has been formed to make investment decisions related to the information technology used by PEP. The case study identifies the membership of the ITSC, which includes the Chief Information Officer (CIO). The CIO has asked your group to develop a presentation for the ITSC that describes an enterprise governance process which uses each of the following documents in the IT decision making and project management processes:

the Preliminary Investigation Report,

the Requirements Specification,

the Design Specification, and

The governance process should be centered around the system development life cycle (SDLC) phases and the milestone decision points at which decisions are made on whether to proceed to the next phase. The explanation should include for each document from the list above:

  • the phase of the SDLC in which the document is created and how it fits in that phase,
  • who should be involved in creating the document,
  • a list of the major stakeholders – each of the members of the ITSC – and what their individual areas of particular interest are,
  • a list of at least 3 important questions to be answered at this stage, and
  • what the major considerations are for a go/no-go decision, including consideration, where applicable, of the PEP strategic business plan, the IT strategic plan, components of the Enterprise Architecture, and other applicable documents the team may identify.

The phases of the SDLC to be used are discussed in the Systems Planning Course Module and are:

Systems Planning

Systems Analysis

Systems Design

Systems Implementation

  • Systems Operation

The presentationis to be developed using Microsoft PowerPoint for delivery to the executive leadership team, and should be at a level appropriate for that purpose. Your presentation format should be professional and use frames, color and/or style to make it interesting in appearance to keep your audience’s attention. Each slide should have a title, a slide number, and a limited number of bullet points. A presentation should capture key bullet points and not include complete paragraphs and detailed text. The bullet points in your presentation will be supported by relevant details in the Notes section of the slides. Use the Notes area to write what you would say(all your words from “Good morning” to “Thank you”) if you were giving this as a presentation. Presentations with limited or no Notes will receive much lower grades. The use of at least three (3) external resources(other than the textbook and classroom resources) is required; your sources should be scholarly sources, not Wikipedia and the popular press. Remember to correctly cite and reference your sources. Any direct quotes should be indicated within the slide text with appropriate quotation marks and an in-text citation (however direct quotes should be short and used sparingly, if at all). Complete references for all sources should be included in the corresponding Notes section. Paraphrased material can just be referenced within the Notes section of the slides without an in-text citation on the slide. This deviates from APA style but keeps the slides more readable.

Your presentation should be at least 10 slides, including:

•A cover slide with a title, names of the group members and date as a minimum

•A slide to explain the purpose of the briefing

• 1-2 slides that explains the overall governance process that is being proposed which will include decision points based on the four documents listed:

the Preliminary Investigation Report,

the Requirements Specification,

the Design Specification, and

the Final System Report

• 1-2 slides for each of the four documents that responds to the following:

  • the phase of the SDLC in which the document is created and how it fits in that phase,
  • who should be involved in creating the document,
  • a list of the major stakeholders – each of the members of the ITSC – and what their individual areas of particular interest are,
  • a list of at least 3 important questions to be answered at this stage, and

what the major considerations are for a go/no-go decision, including consideration, where applicable, of the PEP strategic business plan, the IT strategic plan, components of the Enterprise Architecture, and other applicable documents the team may identify

• 2-3 slides that explain the benefits to the organization of implementing the recommended governance process, addressing each of the ITSC member’s stakeholder interests

• Summary/conclusion slide (keep in mind the purpose of the briefing is to obtain executive approval to implement the governance process)

Group Management

 

Group work is to be conducted in the Groups area of the online classroom – the group discussion area and the group locker – and the use of online Messages and email is discouraged and should be restricted. If those must be used, please copy your faculty member. The work should be balanced among the team. At the conclusion of the project, each team member will rate the participation of each of the team members, including themselves. These rating will be sent to the professor via the Assignment Folder, using the Group Project Peer Review (GPPR) criteria below, and will be considered in the assignment of individual scores.

Submitting Your Assignment

One member of the group should submit the presentation via the Group Assignment Folderas Microsoft PowerPoint presentation. Use the Grading Rubric below to be sure you have covered all aspects of the assignment.
