This individual assessment requires you to further apply the governance and change management theories, concepts, and frameworks introduced in the course. You will have to offer a proposal aimed at avoiding governance shortcomings in contemporary major IT projects and operations. Your proposed solution needs to strengthen IT governance to accommodate new challenges specifically in public sector and governmental organizations. You are therefore tasked with providing advice on how a particular Australian state government should prepare to deal with governance of emerging and wide-spreading AI systems that will be harnessed in government departments. In offering your advice for such new technologies and future IT projects in a business report, you are also asked to provide guidance of how to deal with the issues of managing cognitive bias in the development of governance practice for such novel digital technologies.
The Commissioners are keen to adopt a more proactive stance when it comes to dealing with important emerging technologies that will be harnessed in government departments. Again, the Commissioners want to receive advice on how the state should prepare to deal with governance of AI systems.
In this assignment, you should consider yourself to be the selected government officer tasked with preparing the report that needs to deal with the issues of managing cognitive bias and the development of governance practice to deal with the rise of artificial intelligence applications. You would be reporting to the relevant Public Service Commissioners.
