Module Content & Assessment

Indicative Content
Module Content
The project will comprise three dimensions: • A business dimension • A technical dimension • An ethical dimension The business dimension will address a particular change in the way the organisation/industry conducts its processes. This will often require a current situation analysis and an identification of areas for improvement or change. The technical dimension will analyse and recommend the most suitable technology to effect the required business change. The ethical dimension will illustrate how the solution has a positive impact from an ethical perspective e.g. improves quality of life, reduces carbon footprint, facilitates education etc.
