You might find the following suggestions helpful in analysing the case and preparing your report. 1. Research your identified client company carefully and prepare an in-depth summary before you try your hand at doing specific strategic analysis. You might need to go through a couple of iterations before strategic analysis. This is a very important stage in preparing your report since the rest of your report will be shaped by the ‘nuggets of wisdom’ that you identify at this stage. 2. For each piece of recommendation that you offer, check back to see what supporting evidence you can offer from the company description and your strategic analyses to support your conclusion. Also check to see if there is some disconfirming evidence. 3. Make sure the strategy analysis results, proposed recommendations, implementation and expected outcomes are consistent throughout your project. 4. For each piece of recommendation that you offer, consider how it compares or contrasts with each other and how it t compares or contrasts with the recommendations from the subject readings.Page 4 of 4 ISIT901/ISIT401 Information Systems and Strategy Group Project Spring Session 2016 Marking Guide 1 Executive summary /5 2 Business description /5 3 Strategic analysis I /10 4 Strategic analysis II /10 5 Integrated discussion of analyses results /5 6 Strategy formulation /15 7 Strategy implementation /5 8 Expected outcomes /5 9 Professionalism (spelling, grammar, presentation, layout etc.) /5 Total: /65
