Overview
This assignment follows on from assignment 1 in some respects: it is a business report about
information systems at Samsung. This assignment has a different topic and you complete it as
an individual, not a group report.
Part 1: Approaches for Global Systems Development at Samsung 11 marks
Do further research on the development approaches that are in the readings: SDLC, RAD and
prototyping. Then this section should include each of the following parts, organised into
paragraphs and subsections as required:
Begin with text that provides some context for this section.
Concisely describe two approaches using language a senior manager at Samsung would
understand and relate to. As much as possible, compare and contrast between the two
approaches.
Select one of these development approaches and discuss its potential deployment at
Samsung. Specifically, this discussion should give arguments for and against how this
development approach would work in Samsung’s global information systems environment.
Conclude with a clear statement why this approach is being recommended.
Very briefly, give a concise explanation why you are not recommending the other
approach.
Full marks can only be given to analysis that is specific to conditions at Samsung and for
global information systems.
For marking, part 1 also includes an appropriate executive summary and introduction.
Part 2: Methodologies for Global Systems Development at Samsung 11 marks
Do further research on the development methodologies that are in the readings: STRADIS,
Yourdon, SSADM and Agile development. Then this section should include each of the
following parts, organised into paragraphs and subsections as required:
Begin with text that provides some context for this section.

For marking, part 2 also includes an appropriate conclusion at the end of the report.

Part 3: Ethics-based Risk Assessment 5 marks
Conduct an ethics-based risk assessment on Samsung’s global information systems. Identify
primary and secondary stakeholders, identify possible risk areas and suggest potential areas of
harm. This information must be expressed in a table that connects each of these (i.e., for every
stakeholder at least one risk area and at least one area of harm).
This section should include some text that sets the context, the table and some text that
explains the content of the table.
Presentation 5 marks
This business report should reflect the highest standards of professional communication. This
includes grammar, capitalisation, punctuation, spelling, idea flow, sentence structure,
formatting, page numbers, etc. In all of these matters and more, be consistent and be correct.
Participation in Discussion Forums 8 marks
The readings in units 6 and 7 are an integral and essential requirement for completing this
assignment. Accordingly, although these marks are awarded separate from the report they
make up 8 of the 50 marks on assignment 2.
Contribute to two online discussion forums pertaining to the readings for this assignment
(units 6 and 7) for 4 marks each. Marks are allocated on the quality and originality of
contribution. For example, rather than simply summarise the readings you should search for
more information about the topic and add observations from those readings, provide links or
references to additional resources and/or give your own opinions on readings and/or other
entries in the discussion forum. The appendix in assignment 1 offers more suggestions to
obtain full marks here.
Submitting the Final Report
1. The maximum word count for this assignment is 3,000 words. No minimum word count
applies, just be sure the assignment fulfils all of the expectations outlined above. Penalties
will be applied to any submission that exceeds 3,000 words.
2. The assignment must be largely in your own words. It will be uploaded to SafeAssign,
which will check the work for originality. Submissions that have excessive matching
against unreferenced sources or other students’ work will be submitted to the Disciplinary
Committee and/or a penalty for plagiarism will apply.
3. Do not include a table of contents or list of tables/figures. These interfere with the
matching system on SafeAssign.
4. Do not attach an Assignment Cover Sheet. Not only is this not expected in a business
report, it also interferes with the matching system on SafeAssign.
5. The due date is no later than 4.30pm on Friday, 20 October 2017. Assignments submitted
after this time will be penalised 5 marks for every 24 hours of lateness.
6. The assignment is marked out of a total of 40 marks, according to the marking criteria
listed above.
7. You may submit a draft of your work once for formative feedback. The draft will be
mostly reviewed for completeness (i.e., are all major components present), not content or
presentation. Comments will be offered to help you to improve your work. To take

advantage of this offer your assignment must be submitted no later than 4.30pm on
Friday, 6 October 2017.
Upload Declaration
All submissions are to be uploaded to SafeAssign. Accordingly, in uploading your
contributions to the discussion forums and business report to SafeAssign you agree to the
following conditions:
1. You understand it is your responsibility to keep a copy of your assignment.
2. This assessment is entirely your own work and has not been submitted in any other course
of study.
3. In this assessment you have acknowledged:
a. the source of direct quotes from the work of others,
b. the ideas of others (includes work from private or professional services, past
assessments, other students, books, journals, cut/paste from Internet sites and/or other
materials) and
c. the source of diagrams.
This includes “minimal paraphrasing” – changing a few words in a direct quote does not
make this “your own work”. Either quote directly (include quotation marks, citation and
reference) or substantially rewrite the idea so it is expressed in your own words (include
citation and reference).
4. You understand that SafeAssign is a software system that detects plagiarism and copying,
and that it will be used on your assignment.
5. AUT regulations regarding academic dishonesty, including plagiarism, are included in
Part 7 (Academic Discipline) of the General Academic Regulations found at
