Concepts and Applications of Information Technology (IFSM201)
Class Project

Purpose of this Assignment
The Class Project is the most significant assignment in this course, Concepts and Applications of

Information Technology. As such, it accounts for 40% of the course points. This assignment is

comprised of two deliverables; a SWOT Analysis and a Presentation. The SWOT Analysis is due

in Week 4 (worth 15% of course grade), and the Presentation is due in Week 8 (worth 25% of

course grade).

This assignment gives you the opportunity to demonstrate your ability to research, evaluate,
and describe business strategy focused on information technology tools and services. This
assignment specifically addresses the following course outcomes:

• Identify the basic components of the information system: hardware, software, data,
processes, and people, and how these components are used to support strategic
decision making.

• Apply information technology tools for research, data gathering and information
analysis, problem-solving, decision-making, and communicating information that aligns
with business needs and objectives.

Start Here
The Class Project for this course focuses on the evaluation of a business or organization and

how they might strengthen their operations through technology, including their information

systems. There are two parts to the Class Project; the SWOT Analysis and the Presentation. You

will use the same business/organization for both parts; however, the grade received on the

SWOT Analysis will not affect the grade for the Presentation (they are separate assignments).

Step 1: Choose a Business or Organization

To begin, choose a business or organization that you would like to evaluate – it can be where

you work, a school (UMGC), a place of worship, government entity (e.g., DMV, Secretary of

State, courthouse, etc.), or any other type of organization. Since the focus of the analysis will

involve information technology, the best type of organization to choose is one where you can

envision technology playing a key role in improving products, processes, or services.

*From this point on, the instructions focus on the first deliverable, the SWOT Analysis*

Step 2: The SWOT Analysis (due week 4)

Now that you have chosen a business or organization for your Class Project, it is time to

complete the first deliverable – the SWOT analysis. A SWOT analysis is a framework for

identifying and analyzing an organization’s strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats —

SWOT stands for: Strength, Weakness, Opportunity, Threat. Commonly used by businesses,

this tool focuses on factors that are important to strategic decision making. These factors

include both internal and external influences on the viability of the organization.
