This  assignment  is  an  individual  submission.  Y
ou  are
asked  to  submit  the
assignment  simply  though  the  link  provided.  This  is  similar  to  t
he  submission
procedure  of  Assignment  A.
You  are
encouraged  to  discuss  the  assignment
solution  path
with  others  to
improve  your  understanding  and  clarify  requirements  but  you  should  develop  the
solution  to  the  assignment  on  your  own.
Critical  Analysis
T
he  CEO  of  the  organisation  (as  specified  in  Assignment  A)  read  through  your
submitted  document  and  felt  that  there  is  some  merit  in  pursuing  the  options
suggested  by  you.  The  CEO  wanted  you  to  explore  the  options  provided  by  you  in
depth  so  that
‘personal
health  records’  can  be  managed  in  his  organisation
,  initially
as  a  pilot  project
.
The  CEO  provided  a  time
total
limit  of  12  months
(in  the  form  of
a  pilot  project)
to  explore  the  suggestions  provided  by  you  in  Assignment  A,  and
asked  you  to  provide  an  impl
ementation  strategy  within  90  days.
The  12  months
include  the  90  days.
The  CEO  is  very  interested  in  two  specific  aspects,  namely
–
Information
technology  infrastructure  required  to  implement  the  project  and  achieving
operational  excellence.  These  aspect
s  are  covered  in  the  textbook  from  chapters  5
–
9.  In  addition  to  these  two  key  aspects,  the  CEO  would  like  your  expert  opinion
on  enhancement  to  decision  making  as  well  as  managing  a  global  market.  These
two  additional  aspects  are  to  look  into  the  future
as  the  business  expands  beyond
the  12  months  to  a  period  of  an  additional  24  months.
T
rough  your  report  (Assignment  A),  t
he  CEO  understood  that  Personal  Health
Record  consists  of  many  issues  to  consider,  policies  to  be  developed  or  modified  at
organisati
onal  level,  and  new  investments  to  be  made  to  manage  data  security.
The
CEO
appreciated  the  contents  of  the  report  and  made  a  number  of  suggestions
to  improve  the  report  so  that  it  aligns  with  his  organisation.
Your  markers  will  give
this  in  the  feedback  f
orm.  For  the  purpose  of  this  assignment,  recognising  the  delay
in  sending  this  feedback  to  you,  we  ask  you  only  to  provide  how  the  feedback  can
be  addressed.  See  point  1  below  under  ‘Submission  Components’.
In  this  assignment  component,  y
ou  are  required
to  research
a  solution  path  for:
1.
An  implementation  strategy  for  the  project  as  a  pilot;
2.
A  comprehensive  analysis  of  information  technology  infrastructure
required  to  conduct  the  pilot  project;
3.
Strategies  to  achieve  operational  excellence  through  the  pilot
project,  and
the  key  measurement  criteria  to  provide  evidence  to  achieving  operational
excellence  through  your  solution;
4.
A  discussion  on  how  your  solution  would  enhance  decision  making  in  the
organisation  within  the  scope  of  this  project;  and
5.
How  a  global
market  can  be  managed  in  the  future  so  that  the  organisation
can  expand.
The  scope  of  this  assignment  is  restric
ted  to  the  following
submission  components
:
1.
Provide  a  report  as  how  will  be  able  to  address  the  feedback  provided  by
the  CEO  in  your  initial
report  (Assignment  A)
–
750  words
2.
With  this  refinement  (as  in  point  1  immediately  above),  analyse  and  discuss
your  solution  path  for  the  5  points  stated  above  (2000  words)
3.
Provide  a  cost  analysis  to  implement  the  pilot  project.  The  cost  analysis  will
have
at  least  three  cost  models  (best,  medium,  worst  case  scenarios)
4.
Provide  a  detailed  justification  to  the  costs  considered  in  the  cost  models
and  state  why  you  chose  those  cost  elements,  and  how  they  align  with  your
solution  path  for  the  pilot  project  (750  w
ords)
The  above  components  are  presented  to  the  CEO,  therefore  need  to  be  precise,
succinct  and  meaningful.
The  CEO  also  asked  for  your  initial  report  and  the
feedback  packaged  as  an  appendix  and  attached  so  that  he  can  recollect  the  salient
points  of  the
report  you  submitted  and  the  feedback  given  to  you.  This  should  be  in
the  appendix,  in  pdf  format.
The  assignment  should  be  thoroughly  researched,  with  evidence  provided  through
references.  The  CEO  is  keen  to  see  a  well  argued  case,  highlighting  insight
s  as  to
the  key  aspects,  and  would  like  to  see  strong  points  arguing  your  case  as  to  the
infrastructure  requirements  and
strategies  for  achieving  operational  excellence
.
The
CEO  also  wanted  to  see  a  report  on  the  work  schedule,  and  would  like  to  see
the  t
ime  committed  and  spent  in  producing  this  report  (Assignment  B),  and  map
this  to  a  costing  structure  in  terms  of  fee  schedule.  This  is  to  be  attached  as  an
invoice.
The  assignment  will  have  three  additiona
l  components  in  addition  to  the
key
aspects.  They
are:
1.
A  cover  letter  stating  the  fee,  resource  and  time  schedule
–
1  page
2.
A  time  and  resource  schedule  as  to  the  infrastructure  requir
ements
–
1
page
3.
An  executive  summary
–
1
page
The  report  is  provided  to  the  CEO  of  the  organisation  and  needs  to  be  top  class  in
presentation.  You  have  absolute  freedom  in  all  other  aspects.  Please  note  that
there  is  no  need  to  attach  a  plagiarism  report.  However,  the  markers  will  be
instructed  to  v
erify  that  the  content  is  original.  If  discrepancies  are  found,  your
work  will  be  marked  with  zero,  and  you  will  be  referred  to  the  faculty  for
‘academic  misconduct’.  Therefore,  you  are  encouraged  to  check  your  written
document  for  any  potential  plagiarism
or  collusion  issues.
Any  delays  in  submission  MUST  be  accompanied  with  proper  approval
documentation,  despite  the  course  leader  approving  this.  So  please  attach  the
approval  to  this  assignment  as  markers  may  not  have  access  to  delay  approvals.  If
the  app
roval  documentation  is  not  found,  late  penalty,  as  per  university  rules,  will
be  levied.
Assignments  MUST  be  submitted
via
the  link  provided.  If  they  are  not  submitted
via  the  link,  then  it  is  assumed  that  submission  was  made.  If  the  assignments  were
subm
itted  in  other  locations,  it  is  very  difficult  to  track  them,  as  the  course  team
have  no  access  to  other  locations.
