Description
Case studies assess students’ understanding of concepts presented
in weekly lectures and tutorials by researching and analysing real life
situations. This is a group assignment.
In this assignment, groups of 4 students are required to identify a
recent Enterprise Systems implementation in an organisation and
write a 2,500 to 3,000-word report and deliver a 15-minute
PowerPoint presentation on the following issues depicted in the
chosen case study. Email your choices to the Lecturer for approval.
1. Describe the organisation and explain the problem or opportunity
it faced.
2. Describe the nature of the Enterprise Systems that the
organisation adopted and the process by which it was selected
and implemented.
3. Explain and analyse any difficulties the organisation may have
faced in adopting the system.
4. Provide an assessment of how successful the adoption of the
Enterprise Systems was and a discussion of any success metrics
that were used.
You are required to use additional references to support your
arguments.
READ THE GROUP WORK GUIDELINES IN THE APPENDIX
Peer Review Forms
EACH member of the group is to submit a Peer Review Form in the
Moodle Assignment Submission Tool. See the Appendix for
instructions on group member performance.
Presentation
The individual groups will have 15 minutes to present their report. All
the group members are required to participate in this task and need to
collaborate to ensure that the whole presentation is cohesive.
2
The Lecturer will require a STAPLED hard copy of the presentation
(in addition to the soft copy Moodle submission via Turnitin).
Referencing and Plagiarism
It is essential to use IN TEXT referencing. If you are using the
exact words from a reference; then you must use quotation
marks.
You can use Chicago Style referencing with numbers, with a
listing at the end of the essay. Microsoft Word has an
EndNote plugin that makes this style very easy and clear to
follow.

Alternatively, you can use the more traditional Harvard style,
which is more verbose.

will be subject to severe penalties. Please refer to the AIH

APPENDIX
Equal Contribution of Group Members
It will be assumed that all group members contribute equally and hence will receive the same
mark for the group part of the assignment.
You are required to complete the Peer Review Form. This can be downloaded as a Word file and submitted
individually by all group members through the Moodle assignment submission tool.
▪ If you consider that a group member has not contributed significantly, you can
nominate that person in the form.
▪ If you do not want to list the name of that student, you should contact your Lecturer
directly and inform him/her.
▪ Each member of the group should complete and submit a Peer Review Form.
A common problem encountered with students is that some members of groups do not contribute sufficiently. This
includes not attending the weekly workshop/laboratory sessions. If a member of any group is not acting in a
responsible manner, please attempt to resolve the problem with the student in question in a mature, adult fashion.
If such a course of action fails, it is the duty of the group to email to the Lecturer so that alternative assessment
arrangements can be made. If the problem is not outlined in writing to the Lecturer before the end of Week 10, the
group will have to live with the problem. The final decision about the assessment will rest with the Lecturer. In
extreme cases this will involve the non-contributing student(s) undertaking all of the group assessment tasks
individually.
Example of Team Ground Rules
Our attitude and culture
• We treat each other with respect.
• We aim to develop personal relationships to enhance trust and opencommunication.
• We value constructive feedback. We avoid being defensive and give constructive feedback (positive
and task-focused)
• We treat all team members equally
• We strive to recognize and celebrate individual and team accomplishments.
• As team members, we will pitch in to help where necessary to help solve problems and catch- up on
behind-schedule work.
5
Team meetings
• We will hold regular weekly meetings, either in person or on the course discussion board (or other)
• We will organise additional meetings if critical issues arise.
• All team members are expected to attend team meetings unless they are out of town,on holidays
or sick.
• The team leader can cancel or reschedule a team meeting if sufficient team members are
unavailable or there is insufficient subject matter to meet about.
• The team leader will publish the meeting agenda 24 hours before the meeting.
• Meetings will start promptly and all members are expected to be on time.
• The recorder will keep an action list, and allocate each action to a team member.
• Responsibilities for actions arising from meetings must be agreed to by the individual(s)
concerned.
• Meeting minutes will be distributed within 24 hours after the meeting.
Communication and Decision-Making
• One person talks at a time; there are no side discussions.
• Each person is given a chance to speak their mind while at the same time respecting the group’s
time and the meeting timetables. We will be brief and focus on facts, notopinions.
• We will be open and honest about our interests and position.
• We will address issues and will not accept attacks on team members aspeople.
• We will listen, be non-judgmental and keep an open mind on issues until it is time to decide.
• We accept that each team member deserves to be heard
• We will seek group consensus for all important issues.
• We will reach agreement and commit to explicit team objectives.
• We will follow the team plan and schedule for completing tasks.
• If a team member is asked to do something outside of their nominated tasks, they will inform the team
leader.
• When we raise an issue or a problem, we will also try to present a solution.
• Team commitments shouldn’t be made lightly, but we will keep those that we do.
Other
• We will focus sufficient time on team processes and conduct process checks when one member believes
we are deviating from our ground rules.
