Week 1 – the good and the bad: what’s the difference?

 

Based on your own experience,  this week’s reading and your independent research: Identify and briefly discuss an example of an organization that has invested greatly in IT and yet has relatively little to show as a result. Then, identify and briefly discuss an organization where the opposite is true. To what do you attribute the difference?

Answer the prompt and respond to at least three of your peers’ posts. You must make an initial post before you are able to view the posts of your peers. To view the discussion board rubric, click the gear icon in the upper right corner and select “Show Rubric.”

A HINT about Conference Discussion at the Masters Level:

Try to get your initial post in early in the conference week and dialgue with your classmates through the conference week.   Think of our online as discussion in a traditional classroom.   

Posting your initial post and your responses at the last moments of the discussion week would be similarto entering a traditional classroom and  discussion with 10 minutes left in the class – missing the discussion and dialogue raised by your classmates.   Remember – the intent of our conference discussion is to take the discussion to the next level…  the Masters Level of discussion.   

Also…  posting early has its benefit, as you do not want to say the same thing that a classmate states.   

Finally – please  use academic citations to fortify your position.

Lerts have a GREAT Discussion to start the semester!
