Questions & Answers (Jun & All theparticipants)? We shall speak about the assignment requirements andoffer suggestions in this session.? If you have questions after this session, please postyour questions on the specific Discussion Board forumfor Assignment 1 where it will be answered for thebenefit of all students.Assignment 1 Overview· Individual Research Report· Weight 25% – 25 marks· 2,500 words· Due Thursday 5 December 2019· Assessment Criteria· Content (20 marks)· Research & Referencing (3 marks)· Communication & Presentation (2 marks)? Prepare a report that critically discusses how organisations apply thestrategic use of IS/IT to achieve IS/IT-enabled innovation.? Apply relevant knowledge discussed in this unit (e.g., Topic 2).? Prepare for this assignment by reviewing the literature (i.e., by usingProQuest 5000 and Science Direct databases available at SCU library)and searching the World Wide Web (i.e. via Google).? Students need to show evidence that you have read and cited at least 10references, which must be published after January 2013, in the literature(including references from academic and professional publications) toprepare this assignment. If you have not cited a reference in the paper,then it cannot be listed in the Reference List.? A variety of references are expected including books, refereed journals,newspapers, magazines and electronic references.Definition of IS/IT Enabled Innovation forAssignment 1? For Assignment 1, a broad definition of IS/ITenabled innovation is adopted:? “IS/IT enabled Innovation is IS/ITenabled improved products/services,processes, systems for improving anorganization’s performance and/orenhancing (or creating) itscompetitive advantages, and/orsupporting its strategic goals.”? Have a clear structure, e.g., Cover Page, Table of Contents,Introduction, Discussion for Q1, Discussion for Q2, Discussion for Q3,Discussion for Q4, Conclusions, Reference List (Harvard referencingformat), Appendix (if necessary).? If you have more to say, you can have more than 2,500 words (i.e.,minimum 2,500 words); but your report should not be too long andQuality carries much more weights than quantity. It is notnecessary to have equal length for the questions. If it is necessary,you can put your detailed discussion into appendix.? Use Diagrams and Tables to enhance your discussion.? Professionally formatted and presented. Please use a Spell-checkerand grammar-checker on all assignments? Harvard referencing style is to be used. The format is in-textcitations and a Reference list. The Harvard referencing styledoes NOT use footnotes.? Q1: Critically discuss at least 4 examples oforganisational attempts at achieving IS/ITenabled innovation.? Present (with ample in-text citations) at least 4examples of using IS/IT for innovation by 4 entities.? Students need to clearly present the key informationof the cases, including purposes (e.g., using IS/ITenabled innovation for new products/services, betterbusiness processes), process/journey (e.g., theprocess they have gone through), and outcomes (e.g.,successful or not).Assignment 1 Questions (2)? Q2: Critically discuss the success factors andlessons learned – Highlight some success factors forthe successful examples and lessons learned (i.e.,what went wrong) for your unsuccessful examples.? Clearly indicate success factors (what worked) and lessonslearned (what factors attributed to what went wrong).? Clearly highlight key factors before further explanation.? Present good explanation of identified factors.? It is better to have separate sections to discuss successfactors and lessons learnedAssignment Questions (3)? Q3: Critically discuss the impacts of internal andexternal factors on the success (or the failure) of theIS/IT enabled innovation? Internal factors could include organizational (e.g., culture, structure,processes, size, industry, products & services), individual, andmanagement factors? External factors could include market, industry, social, economic,technological and political/policy factors? Are Internal factors more important than External factors? Or theother way around?? Some identified factors from your chosen cases will be used andother relevant factors from the literature and your experience shouldbe brought in as well. These identified factors should pertain to yourchosen cases. Generic factors should be avoided in your discussion.Assignment Questions (4)? Q4: Suggest recommendations and guidelines forhelping organizations succeed in their efforts ofembarking on using IS/IT for innovation with goodexplanation and discussion:? Clearly spell out your suggestions before further explanation!? Good explanation and justification for yoursuggestions/recommendations/guidelines.? Recommendations should be built on your previous discussion,best practices identified in the literature, and your ownexperience…? Recommendations are for using IS/IT for innovation in anyorganization not for any particular case(s) cited in your Ass 1.Some Literature Search Key Words:· Information Systems (IS) and Innovation Or InformationTechnology (IT) and Innovation· IS for Innovation Or IT for Innovation· Cases (or Case Studies) for IS (or IT) for (or and) Innovation· You need to narrow down the research results by focusing on certainthings (e.g., firms, industries, products & services, sizes, systems &technologies, regions, countries, markets).· It is best to use Advanced Search functions in Proquest 5000 and ScienceDirect Databases (via SCU Library portal)· You might also use Google (or Advanced Google) to identify someinterested cases and then look for more detailed information in databases.· Remember: A single reference may not provide all the required informationfor a selected case. So students will need to research information fromvarious sources for each selected case. Let’s block ads! (Why?)
