University of the Cumberlands Real World Job Experience Should a CIO Have Hw

Question Description

I don’t understand this Communications question and need help to study.

This week is all about the CIO.

I want you to answer this question:

What real world job experience should a CIO have?

is it a business background, a financial background, an IT background or something else?

Remember to use the 3 paragraph structure we have been using all semester.

Your first paragraph should clearly state the background you think a CIO should possess. the next paragraph should support your position, the final paragraph should be your reasoning why the remaining backgrounds are not appropriate.

You should have no directly quoted material. All material in this discussion should be your original words.

You must use at least two scholarly resource.

APA formatted.

300 - 400 words Minimum

In your own words, no quotations allowed.



Your discussion response will take the form of a 3 paragraph, (no more than 1 page) response that can stand on its own right,

so you need to write in academic style, aiming at an anonymous reader who may exist in a different time or space. EG, you need to write for someone who will read your post 50 years from now, or 5000 miles from here, or both.

Be formal and precise, because your goal is to educate that reader.

While you are writing, try to avoid obvious phrases such as “This article is about…”. It’s an annotated bibliography. The entire purpose is to describe what the article is about. So don’t waste space stating the obvious. Just jump right in to the good stuff: the stuff that the reader needs to know.

For example, if you are given the task to research CLOUD COMPUTING, then a summary of an article on cloud computing might start with something along the lines of:

Summary: CIOs under the mandate of the US Government’s “Cloud First” policy report that there are critically important challenges to moving to the cloud in a way that minimizes security concerns and maintains usefulness of the information resource. Two main concerns are the contract structure and the information architecture, both of which must be well thought through prior to migration to the cloud. Recommended actions to assist in this engineering effort are to have a cloud advisory board and participating in the FedRMP program.


You should write only as many words as are needed to capture the summary of the article. You’re not replicating the content but simply pointing out the important bits. In fact, your goal should be to capture the spirit of the article in as few words as possible. You don't need to quote or paraphrase: simple summarize the point of the article. This is easier, by the way, with articles that are actually dense with facts and research. News reports are notoriously difficult to summarize, simply because they tend to be summaries themselves. They are also not particularly useful as sources for a research report.

The second paragraph, the Assessment, is where you tear apart the article and point out any flaws in logic or applicability. Tell your reader what the article is good for AND what it is not good for. Your reader needs to know strengths and limitations, so tell her. And be precise.

Finally, the reflection paragraph is where you discuss how the article contributed to your learning. I mean on a personal level, what did you learn, and what could your classmates learn.


on a separate line and in PERFECT APA format, you will include your references. Using just one reference will get you a minimum grade. I do not want a book report, so use more than one reference.
