Instructional Guidelines
● There are two parts in this assignment.
● In the first part, you will choose a case organisation, based on your research about the case
organisation, apply some of the techniques, approaches and principles learnt to date in this unit to
conduct IT strategic planning.
● You are required to seek information beyond the resource provided. However, you are not required to
contact the organisation for information. You may make reasonable assumptions, justify them in the
report, and support them with references if appropriate.
● In part two, you will carry out research into academic theories, critically analyse some of the
approaches and principles/philosophies for how to conduct IT strategic planning.

Part 1:

● Use SWOT analysis to discuss the strength, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats of the case
2. Evaluate the role of IT in the case organisation (2 marks)
Demonstrate your understanding of the role of IT in the case organisation.

● Discuss the IT infrastructure in the case organisation. You may select one specific business area of the
organisation (e.g., logistics, marketing, sales) or decide to have a broader perspective (e.g., across all
areas of the business), and describe the role of IT in the area you selected.
● Discuss how IT achieves the business competitive advantage.
3. Analyse the IT strategy in the case organisation (3 marks)

Business Process Improvement.

Part 2:
1. Select two (2) strategic planning approaches or techniques from those covered in this unit. Critically

approaches you have selected, and the advantages and disadvantages of each of your selections. (4 marks)
2. Discuss how you would use these in combination in an organisation. (2 marks)
3. Draw a careful set of conclusions and make recommendations about the use of each. (2 marks)
A high-quality response to the task will not simply describe or summarise the theories and approaches. To
produce a good final evaluation of the theories, your writing must critically analyse the theories using quality
evidence and logical reasoning.

full references in the bibliography (use APA style).
