Resources: “Key Questions When Planning a Computer System” (link will be posted in Week 3 Grading Forms thread in the Course Materials forum)
Create a Microsoft® PowerPoint® presentation to recommend a new information technology (IT) system for a human services organization. Write the presentation as if you are ‘selling’ the system. Include the services the organization offers and how the new IT system would benefit the organization.
Prepare a role-play to illustrate how the staff of a human services organization would make decisions on purchasing a new computer system. Utilize a real organization or a fictional one. The role-play should be a ‘script’ of the discussion the key decision makers/players (listed below) would have AFTER they have viewed the PowerPoint presentation.
Include the following players:
Development or fundraising manager
Director of operations or controller
· IT consultant
