ICT710 Professional Practice & Ethics – Task 1
Page 3 of 4
Assignment Requirements and Deliverables You need to choose an organization which has undergone a digital disruption and then write a report (1500 words) outlining the changes that have occurred in the organization using a work centred analysis approach.

In the report you will need to provide an assessment of the effect of a digital disruption event in the organisation that you choose, provide recommendations on how to handle the event and provide an implementation plan for your recommendations.

For problem identification and assessment, two matrices will be required, 1) A work centred analysis (WCA) of the company of your choosing prior to a digital disruption event. A retrospective analysis and all assumptions should be included due to the lack of relevant information. 2) The second matrix will be another WCA of the same company after the digital disruption event.

You need to research the organization to provide input into your report.

This report should include the following details in the main body and appendix of the report. Please note standard report structure including an executive summary, introduction and conclusions in addition to the main body must be adhered to. • Framework for analysis o Fill in one WCA framework for before the digital disruption event and another for after the event in an appendix (Appendix A) (this is not included in the word count) • Assessment of the effect of digital disruption o Based on your comparative analysis of both WCA framework matrices that you have recorded in Appendix A, provide an assessment of the effect of digital disruption on the business. o Your assessment must be supported by concepts and other material from the literature (text, readings, etc.). • Recommendations o Provide recommendations on how your case can better handle digital disruption. o You must convince management to adopt your recommendations (i.e. ‘sell’ them to management). • Implementation Plan o Your plan for implementing a process that will reduce the adverse effects of digital disruption (this could include staff training etc.). o Again, you must convince management to adopt your implementation plan (i.e. ‘sell’ it to them).

Submission The report is to be prepared as a single Microsoft Word document with electronic submission through SafeAssign by the due date. For details on report structure refer to: Summers, J. and Smith, B., 2014, Communication Skills Handbook: How to succeed in written and oral communication, 4th, Wiley, Singapore

Solutions To Global Issues

The Cost of Natural Resources

The economies and populations of BOTH the developed and developing world are affected significantly when oil prices rise, or when the prices of any basis natural resource increases. We all can recall not that long ago when the price of gasoline was nearly $5 a gallon and how it cost us $100 to fill our cars. This most certainly affected the way we all lived.

Another aspect to consider with natural resources is how everything is all interconnected. Remember when we had the push for ethanol as a miracle fuel that was added to our gasoline to save the planet? Well, that caused a lot of farmers to switch from growing corn for food to growing corn for fuel, causing massive increases in food costs in the United States and all around the world. Now the food riots did not get that much attention in the media because it did not fit the political story of saving the planet, but a lot of people died because of this idea.

Consider the following facts and explain how a person could reach different conclusions about natural resources and how the costs of these resources, and our desire to exploit them, affect thins in the world? Provide specific examples and consider the following in your response:


· Despite all of the hype over the green economy and alternative fuel sources, much of it is just not efficient enough or cheap enough for the world to afford it. What motivation could there be for recommending that poor countries (or any country) use expensive technologies that are not that efficient when cheaper and better for the environment?

· Why would it make sense or not to drill for oil in the developing world when oil is easily available at home?

· What would making energy and natural resources make or not make sense? What are some government policies that promote these ideas?

· Nuclear energy happens to be the safest and most renewable form of mass-producing energy the world has thus far discovered. Yet, there has not been a reactor built in the United States in decades. Why?


Organizational Development

Option #1: Organizational Development


Throughout this module, we have examined how training and development programs can be created to improve performance. As we have discussed, an organization’s mission and strategy, along with other factors, can influence how HR professionals approach development.

For this week’s assignment, using the organization you currently work for, a previous organization, or an organization you are familiar with, do the following:

1. Identify and briefly summarize the organization’s mission, values, culture, and strategic direction.

2. Analyze how the mission, vision, and strategy influences the type and frequency of training within an organization. For instance, if your organization is retail oriented and focused on millennial fashion, assess how training should be conducted.

3. Develop two specific training strategies that would be effective in the organization and industry that you identified. Explain the benefits of these strategies and how these strategies are aligned with the organization’s mission, vision, values, and culture.


Write a 5-7 page paper with title and reference pages.
