In this wiki, each group will be developing their report for the S15 Business IS project. I will also be working on a sample report for my sample company. I will do this to help you understand the key elements that will be required of you as you prepare your own company reports.
The Fall 2014 version of the equivalent project description can be found on the F14 Strategic IT Project page. Note, however, that I have made significant changes to the project, so I provide the past link only for information purposes.
Attendance at student presentations is mandatory. Missing a student presentation will have an adverse effect on your participation grade.
