- to understand the business and where you, as consultants, can add value by improving their information systems in marketing and sales.
Based on the information provided as well as your own research (reading!) into information systems write a report for Chanel to assist them in developing a ‘Digital Strategy’ to develop insights for their marketing and sales especially in online sales.
Please structure the group report as follows:
- Title page
- Background to the issue you plan to solve
- Identify and articulate the case for a Digital Strategy at Chanel (based upon the data do you as a group of consultants agree or disagree)
- Research the issues at Chanel and present a literature review – discuss the marketing and sales data analysis needs and the range of BI systems available to meet these needs.
- Recommended Solution – explain the proposed Digital Strategy and information systems and how it will assist the business. You may use visuals to represent your ideas.
- References (quality and correct method of presentation. You must have a minimum of 15 references)
Appendices should include: ‘scrum’ meeting minutes and ‘scrum’ meeting notes: During the Trimester you will hold scrum meetings in your groups (in class or online in a discussion thread). Each group has five minutes to state what they have done and what they plan to do in the next week (each person in the group is required to speak every week). Any issues can be addressed in this time and groups are required to take minutes and update their status every scrum meeting. These meeting minutes then need to be attached to the report as an appendix.
PART B Presentation: Your group is required to present your proposed ‘Digital Strategy’ for the business in a seven (7) minute presentation pitched as though your lecturer is the client and you are selling the idea of your ‘Digital Strategy’.
Every group member must present a minimum of 1 minute with an overall maximum of six slides (plus a reference list).
The presentation is seven (7) minutes with an additional five (5) minutes for questions in in-person classes.
For online classes student groups had an additional two (2) minutes to answer the following question – Why should Chanel adopt your recommended solution/proposal?
ALL STUDENTS MUST ATTEND THE PRESENTATION. Special consideration (SC) must be sought if you are unable to attend. If you do not attend you will not receive any marks for this part of the assignment (unless SC is approved).
