Description / Requirements

Overview of Assignment 2

You take the role of a team of Digital Transformation consultants and prepare a report for organization of interest (either current or future employer) in which you should provide recommendations about how this organization can make use of three emerging technologies to transform its current operations. Your recommendation should be imbedded in an implementation plan, which will outline the details of the implementation and adoption of these three emerging technologies. Your team should also create a video presentation for your report in which you will pitch your recommendations to the organization.

Requirements of Assignment 2

This report should be 4,000 words (excluding the references and appendices). The supplementary video presentation to your report should be 10 minutes long. Groups of 4 students should be formed. To complete this report your team needs to select an organization and analyse its current operations for which recommendations should be provided about how emerging technologies can be deployed to improve these processes. Below you can find a detailed description of the required sections for this report:

  • Executive Summary (~200 words): In this section, you need to briefly describe the organization you have selected and the three emerging technologies you will be recommending. You should also briefly talk about your implementation plan.
  • Introduction (~300 words): In this section, you need to talk the reason you have chosen this particular organization and elaborate on the potential of selected emerging technologies to enable the digital transformation.
  • Organizational Background and Analysis (~1200 words): In this section, introduce the chosen organization and analyse it terms of its industry, market, strategy, and operations. Your team should use the business model canvas (see below) to structure the arguments in this section.
  • Recommendations (~2000 words): In this section, this section you need to present the three emerging technologies that you recommend to the select organization. Your recommendation should focus largely on the potential impact (e.g., reduction of costs, streamlining processes, improving customer service) of these technologies in the chosen organizational context. Furthermore, an implementation plan digital transformation should be proposed based on the roadmap for digital transformation (see below).
  • Conclusion (~300 words): In this section, you should conclude by restating your recommendations and elaborating how the proposed emerging technologies will enable digital transformation within the chosen organizational context.
  • References: References and citations showing the source of all the information in the report need to be provided (Harvard referencing style). The references used must demonstrate thorough research using quality references such as journal articles, book sections, conference papers, and industry reports with good evidence to support your arguments in the sections above. Details on referencing can be found at: http://www.deakin.edu.au/current-students/study-support/study-skills/handouts/ideas.php
  • Appendices: In this section, you should place figures or tables that illustrate or summarize your key points from the recommendations section.

Digital Transformation Roadmap

(Schallmo, D., Williams, C.A. and Boardman, L., 2017. Digital transformation of business models—Best practice, enablers, and roadmap. International Journal of Innovation Management, 21(08), p.1-17.)

 

Submission Instructions

The report must be one (1) single file, named T1_year_MIS712_Group_assign2 (e.g. T1_2019_MIS712_Group 11_ assign2).

You must keep a backup copy of every assignment you submit, until the marked assignment has been returned to you.  In the unlikely event that one of your assignments is misplaced, you will need to submit your backup copy.

Any work you submit may be checked by electronic or other means for the purposes of detecting collusion and/or plagiarism.

When you are required to submit an assignment through your CloudDeakin unit site, you will receive an email to your Deakin email address confirming that it has been submitted. You should check that you can see your assignment in the Submissions view of the Assignment dropbox folder after upload, and check for, and keep, the email receipt for the submission.

Submit the report in the folder called T1 2020 MIS712 Assignment 2 – Digital Transformation Report. Each member should individually submit a peer-review form for Assignment 2.

Notes

  • Penalties for late submission: The following marking penalties will apply if you submit an assessment task after the due date without an approved extension: 5% will be deducted from available marks for each day up to five days, and work that is submitted more than five days after the due date will not be marked. You will receive 0% for the task. ‘Day’ means working day for paper submissions and calendar day for electronic submissions. The Unit Chair may refuse to accept a late submission where it is unreasonable or impracticable to assess the task after the due date.
  • For more information about academic misconduct, special consideration, extensions, and assessment feedback, please refer to the document Your rights and responsibilities as a student in this Unit in the first folder next to the Unit Guide of the Resources area in the CloudDeakin unit site.
  • Building evidence of your experiences, skills and knowledge (Portfolio) – Building a portfolio that evidences your skills, knowledge and experience will provide you with a valuable tool to help you prepare for interviews and to showcase to potential employers. There are a number of tools that you can use to build a portfolio.  You are provided with cloud space through OneDrive, or through the Portfolio tool in the Cloud Unit Site, but you can use any storage repository system that you like. Remember that a Portfolio is YOUR tool. You should be able to store your assessment work, reflections, achievements and artefacts in YOUR Portfolio. Once you have completed this assessment piece, add it to your personal Portfolio to use and showcase your learning later, when applying for jobs, or further studies.  Curate your work by adding meaningful tags to your artefacts that describe what the artefact represents.

Video presentation

The video presentation should provide a summary of your report. This should be treated as a “pitching” exercise. The aim is to sell your proposal to the management of your selected organization. The presentation should be less 10 minutes long and must include all team members to pitch the key points of the report. As it is a presentation, make sure you are telling a story to persuade the management of your selected organization.

The format is open and up to the group to decide. However, it is expected that everyone in the team needs to speak. It is not a requirement that you have to show your physical self.

You will have to submit a link of the video presentation when submitting Assessment 2 in the Dropbox. You may like to upload a MP4 file in CloudDeakin. If the file is too big, you may alternately use other available methods of submission (e.g. YouTube/Vimeo upload, DeakinAir, Google drive link etc.) and share the link in the assignment Dropbox. There are guides on the use of DeakinAir available for students here:

https://www.deakin.edu.au/students/help/about-clouddeakin/help-guides/video-and-audio/deakinair

The presentation will be assessed on communication, teamwork, expert use of diagrams, figures, tables, titles, and text. Overall comprehensiveness and persuasiveness of the presentation also will be considered.
