To make this assignment (and thus the module) more relevant and interesting for you, rather than give all students the same fixed (and artificial) case study, you will select your own real-world case study and then apply the concepts and techniques you have learned from this module to that case study.

1.(a) Select an industry, market sector or area of life that really interests you. It does not matter what you choose as long as you are genuinely interested in it. It could be from any area of commercial life, the charity and voluntary sector, sport, leisure and hobbies or some aspect of government or public service. Document why you have picked a particular area is it because you work in that sector? Is your hobby linked to that sector? Are you seeking to enter employment in that sector? Etc. Justify the selection.
(b) Within your chosen area or sector, select ONE real-world organization it could be a profit-seeking private company, a charity or voluntary group, a sporting team or a public-sector agency like some aspect of the emergency services or a local or central government department or agency. Again, explain why you have chosen it.
(c) Write a brief description of this chosen organization. What do they do? Where are they based? What products, services and markets are they involved with?
(d) Provide the web address of this organization so that the marker can follow it up and, to add visual appeal, include a screenshot of their home page.

While their website and other online sources will give you a very good idea of what the organization actually does, you may have to use your imagination to fill in some missing bits in order to answer the remainder of the tasks in this assignment. This is not a problem just fully document your own assumptions and fully reference any third-party sources that you have used to get additional background information.

In short, start the assignment by clearly and fully introducing your selected case study so that the marker can fully understand your subsequent work and thus ensure that you get maximum credit for all your hard work.

2.Advise the company board of your chosen case study on the types of IT skill sets likely to be required to satisfy the strategic aims of the company and, bearing in mind the financial implications of acquiring such skill sets, where to source such talent. Offer them at least two options. In your deliberations, you should be mindful of recruitment and motivation issues and, something of particular concern to any board, the identification and development of leadership skills within the IT function.

3.The board are likely not to be IT specialists and are thus seeking your advice on what software options are available to satisfy their long-term aims. They specifically need guidance on:

a.Options to unify & streamline their support functions
b.Options to unify & streamline operational functions
c.Options to centrally aggregate data and thus extract strategic insights
d.Options to optimize & secure their internal and external interfaces

For each aspect, you should clearly explain the strengths and weaknesses of each suggestion, whether that be technical, financial, logistical or otherwise.

4.The development and implementation of the proposed unified IT solution, as the means to satisfying the company's strategic aims, will necessitate the roll-out of a substantial project. Advise the board on:
a.Who the key stakeholders will be and their various roles?
b.How the budgetary aspects can be controlled and planned?
c.What are the associated risks and how they can be managed?
d.How a project manager may monitor progress of the IT roll-out?

5.Explain to the board the role of the IT Manager in the planning and execution of the IT roll-out and the subsequent management of the upgraded IT Department and new IT systems once that roll-out is successfully completed. You should comment upon the role ITIL will play in this process.
