Proposal discussion

timer Asked: Mar 28th, 2014

Question description

What: The term project is meant to help sharpen the application of the course content to your specific context of interest, 

and to give you the hands-on skills of going through documenting the Enterprise Architecture effort. The term project will 

involve choosing an organizational context, analyzing one or more of its business processes, diagnosing how it could be 

transformed into an IT-enabled and integrated process and providing recommendations for doing that.

Business to be studied: You are encouraged to use your own company/organization or the one you know as the target 

business for this project (upon the approval of the instructor). If you do not have a real business to work with, you may 

pick one process within Towson University. 

Project Proposal (10%): Each team member must propose at least ONE potential organization and its process (real 

or fictitious) for the project before the group discussion and finally rank order all the ideas in the group. Your 

proposal write up should indicate the authorship of each potential business/process and the final group decision. 

The proposal is a short executive memo explaining what you are going to investigate, how you intend to do it, and 

why it is important to you. This is not meant to be “set in concrete,” but rather to push you to decide early. Your 

proposal should be around 2 pages double spaced. I will provide feedback to you quickly. In the memo you must 

include the following: 

 Authorship of the proposal: Group ID and all names of the contributing members CIS 239 Group Term Project 

 The ideas contributed by each group members. The order of the ideas should reflect the preference in the 

group (from the most preferred to the least preferred). For EACH proposal idea (individual piece), present 

the following: 

o Author of the idea 

o Name of the potential organization and the specific process(es) to be focused on 

o The strategic aspect that you will focus on (e.g. reducing time for the whole cycle of the process, 

increase revenue, etc) 

o how the data can be collected (e.g. interview of the stakeholders, web search, fictitious process based 

on readings and web search) 

o The author’s motivation, interest, and expectation of the project 

 Group’s motivation and interest, and what are expected to be achieved through the project 

 Any concerns or difficulties that you are concerned about 

 A preliminary time schedule. Your time schedule must not only contain the milestones specified in this 

description. Specify your internal deadlines in addition to the specified milestones to make sure the team will 

be able to finish the task on time. 

NOTE: After receiving the proposal from each group, the instructor will quickly review and let each team know 

which idea they are approved to proceed for this project. If the group intends to change topic after the start of the 

project, the team must discuss with the instructor for the appropriateness of the new topic. The order of the ideas in 

the list presented will help solve the problem when multiple teams proposed the same business and/or process. I 

will assign the business to each team based on the preference presented. 

I need 2 pages of the proposal.
