Assignment: Final Project—Business Memo—Selecting the Organization to Study
Playing the role of a consultant to the general manager and/or CEO of your organization, your goal will be to make recommendations for how business information systems can best support the organization’s efforts in building and sustaining a competitive advantage, based on the weekly topics and themes:
As a consultant, you will need to understand your organization from various perspectives. Often you will need to make assumptions about systems, processes, or operations if you are unable to find the exact information. In situations where you do not have access to such information, you are encouraged to study other organizations of similar size or in a similar industry that might have made such information public. Then you can draw conclusions about how that organization’s choices mirror yours. In other instances, you may have to make educated and reasonable assumptions based on what little information you can find, or what you think is true. When you make assumptions, be sure to document them. The validity of your assumptions could affect the soundness of your recommendations.
As a first step, you will need to select a company out of the two options provided. You will be researching and using this company as your own "case study" throughout many of the Discussions and Assignments for the balance of the course. Please review the following options to make your selection:

Refer to the Week 2 Application Assignment Rubric for specific grading elements and criteria. Your Instructor will use this rubric to assess your work.
General Guidance on Assignment Length: Your Week 2 memo to your Instructor describing your chosen organization will typically be 2–4 pages, excluding a title page and references (which are not necessary for this application).
