DOC650 Technology and Business Process Improvement

Module 1 Discussion

DQ1 How important are business processes to an organization?

Part A. If business processes are so important:

Why don't organizations document them and make them part of their "way of doing business," or do they? if so, what do they call them?

Can an organization exist without processes?

Does it make sense to automate every process in an organization? Which ones might you automate? Which ones might you not automate? Justify your answers with references.

DQ2Business merger impacts.

Part B: What happens to business processes when two large companies integrate (via merger) into one? How should they determine what to do with respect to business processes and associated information technology? Who are the participants in this determination?

Module 5 Case

IT SYSTEMS THEORIES - DRAFT DBA PROJECT

Assignment Overview

Note: You must complete the SLP before doing the Case Assignment.

The student will develop a possible (mock/draft) Section 1 Introduction of a doctoral study that should align with your intended DSP topic using the outline provided below.

This Case Assignment focuses on using the knowledge gained in prior modules. Students may re-utilize any writings submitted before and the associated references/citations to address the areas below.

Case Assignment

Using an appropriate cover sheet, create a doctoral study Section 1 that addresses the following:

1.1 Introduction. Overview of the project – The impetus for the study.

1.2 The problem. A discussion on the organization or organizational elements that will be studied. Leadership, Management, Operations, some or all. What do they do, what is their purpose? What type of generic and specific processes do they execute in accordance with the material learned? What type of tools do they use in accordance with the material learned? A discussion of why there is a “perceived challenge/problem” in the organization (i.e., do we know there is a problem to be fixed or are we searching for one or more?). A discussion on the vision or desired end state after problem resolution – what will be more effective or efficient?

1.3 Areas to be analyzed. A discussion on which facets will be analyzed to include some or all of the following, which come from the Cases/SLP of this class:

1.3.1 The Organizational Structure, since processes and organizational structure are always intertwined. What type of structure is it? Provide a graphic of the org structure. Are there any indications of areas that need to be assessed in advance of inquiring through interviews or surveys?

1.3.2 The vertical processes within an org structure (Management). Provide a simple work flow of the situational awareness and decision-making processes. Are there any indications of areas that need to be assessed in advance of inquiring through interviews or surveys?

1.3.3 The horizontal processes within org structure (Product or Service Accomplishment). Describe the process in accordance with Case readings. Provide a simple work flow of the horizontal processes. Are there any indications of areas that need to be assessed in advance of inquiring through interviews or surveys?

1.3.4 The way processes are learned. Are there formal or informal learning methods for each process? What are they? Are they optional, are they mandatory, for some or for all? Are there any indications of areas that need to be assessed in advance of inquiring through interviews or surveys?

 

1.3.5 The IT systems (i.e., Enterprise Systems that support vertical or horizontal processes; decision making or product/service accomplishment). What are the tools that enable vertical (situational awareness or decision making) or horizontal process (service or product) accomplishment? Are there any indications of areas that need to be assessed in advance of inquiring through interviews or surveys?

The above would lead to the methodology section (i.e., what data for each of the above will be gathered, how will the data be gathered, from whom will it be gathered, how will it be analyzed?).

Module 5 SLP

IT SYSTEMS THEORIES - DRAFT DBA PROJECT

Development of the DSP Topic Proposal:

For Module 5 Case you will be required to develop your DSP topic proposal outlining the basic problem statement and research questions you intent to explore within your selected researched field-based organization. Keep in mind the following overall parameters of the DSP:

The DSP is intended to:

Enhance your understanding of your field of study;

Provide experience conducting research in your field of study;

Develop your ability to analyze, synthesize, and evaluate data and conclusions in your field of study;

Make a significant contribution to your field of study;

Include a thorough review of associated professional literature;

It is important to keep in mind that the DSP is not simply another graduate school assignment. The DSP is intended to help the student develop both personally and professionally. It must be scholarly, succinct, and of sufficiently high quality to be published, in part, in a peer-reviewed journal. DSP research may be cataloged and available to other researchers—seasoned professionals and academics, as well as future students—all over the world.

Submit at least a five page assignment that contains the following information as you articulate your research topic within the proposed DSP topic:

Develop a draft of the research problem / topic within the first two paragraphs of the assignment

Develop a draft set of research questions related to the selected research problem

What is the targeted selected organization that you plan to evaluate and apply your research / operational problem to?

Articulate and elaborate the characteristics and dynamics of the selected organization and how it aligns with the proposed research problem and research questions.

Articulate what academic and practitioner based literature supports the proposed research problem and how it relates to the selected organization.

Develop a set of hypothesis related to desired discoveries / outcomes of the intended research of the problem statement / topic.
