Assignment #1 is due this Thursday 5/31 (things move quickly in the summer schedule!)
This assignment is to complete a stakeholder analysis. It is to be done individually and should focus on the stakeholders for your team’s specific project. Amie Potsic is obviously 1 stakeholder. Who are the others?
Below is a template you can use. Other templates can be found in the Memory Jogger reference book.
If you have questions, the Memory Jogger is a great resource. The point of this process is to record information about all of the people affected by the project. This is information from your meetings with them as well as information available through research.
Welcome to the Summer 1 section of MIS 3504.
All of the course information for the next 6 weeks will be available on this blog. In addition, any previous posts are from previous semesters and may be an interesting resource for you if you are interested in seeing what your colleagues discussed in the fall.
Here is the link to the class capture from today’s review session.
Good news – the final exam will be 50 multiple choice questions based on the material covered throughout the semester.
A good guide to some of the questions can be found on the course blog for Richard Flanagan’s section. Many of their posts are possible multiple choice questions. We will use some of these as a basis for the exam questions.
The review will be on Dec 8th from 2:00-3:00 in Speakman 112. COME PREPARED WITH QUESTIONS. We will be happy to answer and review anything you like from the material covered this semester. We will not be giving a summary of the course.
Many of you seemed confused and concerned about the Data Entity and Attribute table.
This is an important part of the project and it makes the assignment real.
If you were producing a prototype for a real client, you would have to list all of the DATA ELEMENTS in an Entity and Attribute table.
The goal of the assignment is for you to demonstrate that your team understands the importance of the data elements and the difference between an Entity and an Attribute.
Final deliverable guidelines:
You need to list only 10 data elements in the table that you think are the most critical for your project
