Assessment 1- Case study report
Assessment Task 1: Case study report
Goal: To analyse a business case using the work centered analysis framework
1500 word report.
You are to write a report outlining the changes that have occurred in a business due to digital innovation using a work centred analysis approach. Two matrices will be required, 1) a work centred analysis (WCA) of a company of your choosing prior to a digital disruption event. This will involve a retrospective analysis and any assumptions, due to a lack of relevant information should be included. The second matrix will be another WCA of the same company after the digital disruption event. In the report you will need to provide an assessment of the effect of a digital disruption event, provide recommendations on how to handle the event and provide an implementation plan for your recommendations. Assessment 1- Case study report
- Identify the salient points associated with a digital disruption event in a company of your choosing.
