MGMT 221 Week 3 Discussion::
In this assignment, you will begin to compose data for a scholarly paper that relates to the technologies we are learning about and how the solutions could assist in improving the efficiencies of the business processes of a hypothetical enterprise.
Summary of Steps
Detailed instructions for this assignment are below and in the Research Project Requirements section, which describes the complete project.
IS-Related Solutions List
Note: You must select your five (5) IS-related solutions from the list below.
Project Submission 1 requires you to select a title for your project, choose five IS-related solutions on which to conduct research during later modules, and build a four-page, ‘barebones’ template in current APA style format. The template that you create in this module will become a working document and end up as your final paper submission in Module 8.
The document that you submit for this project submission should consist only of a
Title Page (Page 1): Page one of your ‘barebones’ template is a properly formatted APA style Title Page. The Title Page contains a page header that includes the words “Running head:” in ‘sentence case’ as shown here (no quotation marks). The title of your paper (also known as the running head) is presented next in UPPERCASE letters following the words “Running head:.” The page number is placed at the right-side tab location on the same line as the title of your paper. The Page Headers on all the pages following the Title Page present the title of the paper in UPPERCASE letters only, leaving out the preceding phrase, “Running head:.” The page numbers will be included in the page headers in a similar manner as presented on the title page.
Abstract Page (Page 2): Only the Page Header and the centered word “Abstract” (NOT in bold font/no quotation marks) is presented on this page in this assignment. Note: You will fill in the Abstract data later in Module 8 when you finish composing the final draft of your document in the last research project assignment.
Body of Text Page (Page 3): Page three of your template should contain the Page Header and the centered title of your paper, a list of the titles of the five IS-related solutions that you selected from the thirteen IS-related solutions provided below, and immediately followed by the centered word “Conclusion” in bold font in the Body of Text page.
Conclusion Section: Center the word “Conclusion” in bold font after the list of the five IS-related solutions that you selected on the body of text page. You will fill in the conclusion data when you finish composing the final draft of your document in the last research project assignment.
Reference List Page (Page 4): Only the Page Header and the centered word “References” (NOT in bold font/no quotation marks) is presented on this page in this assignment.
Save your assignment using a naming convention that includes your first and last name and the activity number (or description). Do not add punctuation or special characters.
Your document submission is due by the posted due date. Your instructor will use the 3.4 Research Project: Submission 1 Rubric for evaluating and grading your submission.
