DIRECTIONS:

Overview:

Once in management, you will have a team and will be responsible to drive an organization to success. The tool used in this case is a “Business Plan”. There are many different versions but most depict the same areas as key to the plan formulation.

 

As an ITM specialist, you need to be able to build and IT business plan showing that you can manage an organization from the mission and vision of the organization to controlling your finance budget. This is a skill that is greatly valued by companies today – to have an employee that can drive a group/team to successfully run their sector of the business and be able to help a company capitalize on it. Equally, if you are an entrepreneur, most banks or investors would not invest without such a business plan as it helps them to know if you really can manage the organization and manage their investment well.

 

Thus, the final project for this class consists of developing a business plan for company or department or group. The plan must be scalable to the course timing (which is the last 8 weeks). Thus, all topics for this deliverable must be approved by the professor in advance of delivering a finished product. Your plan is yours to develop but it MUST have an IT sector. Discussion on ideas for plans will be held in class or as discussions (one-on-one) with the instructor but you should be thinking about your topic from the first day of class.

 

IT Governance:

 

Because you are in ITM, you will need to add in a technology governance model. There are many out there but REQUIRED for this project is to have the following 5 items showing how you plan to govern your IT solution:

Resources:

 

There are many resources that can be helpful to use, including talking to the professor. For this class, there is a LIBRARY GUIDE that has been developed which has information on business plans. There are several You-Tubes and books that might be of help by simply “googling” business plans. There are equally great books on this as well. I highly recommend “The Definitive Business Plan” by Richard Stutely (3rd) and is it a great reference book for the future as well. There are many databases within the school library that can provide you historical and current data to assist you in this project
