You can choose to focus on an area of Enterprise Systems related to one or some of the learning topics in weeks one to four. Once the area is selected, you can start by studying the relevant unit materials. You are expected to add a significant body of new materials, a different perspective or depth to the information already covered in the unit materials. Learn to apply theories into real life practice, with high quality references as support.



For example, in the Development Life Cycle topic (Week 4) students may wish to investigate ERP Implementation Life Cycle at a deeper level, with reference supports from academic sources (such as textbooks, peer-reviewed journal articles) and high quality industry sources. Do not use sources that were published before 2009.



The titles for the weeks one to four learning topics are:



Week 1: Introduction to Enterprise Systems for Management



Week 2: Systems Integration



Week 3: Enterprise Systems Architecture



Week 4: Development Life Cycle




This is an individual assignment. Each student is to develop a PowerPoint presentation focus on an area of Enterprise Systems. Along with the PowerPoint presentation, students are to provide scripts and a handout. There is no face-to-face classroom presentation. The assessment is based on the submitted PowerPoint slides, scripts, handout and other relevant materials.

The titles for the weeks one to four learning topics are: Week 1: Introduction to Enterprise Systems for Management Week 2: Systems Integration Week 3: Enterprise Systems Architecture Week 4: Development Life Cycle Presentation Development Guidelines The ‘presentation’ should be within 15 slides. This limit does not include the title slide, ‘Any Questions’ slide and the slide for Reference List. All slides must acknowledge the source(s) of the content. The ‘handout’ (word document) should be presented as a summary on main points of the PowerPoint presentation. Use concise presentation to present it in one to two A4 pages. Reference List on cited sources is not within the page limit. Student should prepare the scripts as part of the PowerPoint presentation, that is, what would be said if you were giving the presentation in front of an audience. This scripts should be included in the ‘Notes’ section of each slide. Include a section for questions. In the ‘Notes’ section of ‘Any Questions’ slide, include at least two questions that might be posed by the audience and appropriate response to each of the questions. Students must ensure that all material used in the presentation is referenced on the slides. Use Harvard (author-date) referencing style for your in-text citations as well as your Reference List. Refer to the latest CQU Harvard Referencing Guide for guidelines and examples. If there are links to outside sources they should be properly checked before submission. If there are embedded audio or video files all relevant files should be included in the submission (classified as ‘other relevant materials’). Submission of Assessment The following assignment files should be submitted individually. The file size limit is 100Mb: 1. The PowerPoint slides, including scripts in the ‘Notes’ section of each slide (.pptx file). 2. The 'handout' (Word document - .docx file). 3. Any other relevant materials (optional, to be submitted in one file if there are relevant materials as reference).   Hints for Good Presentation 1. Presentation appearance and other first impressions: • first impression is one of confidence and poise • presentation format is simple, clear and appealing 2. Presentation structure: a. Introduction: • title/topic made clear • purpose of the presentation is clear • issues to be discussed are outlined • unusual terms defined adequately b. Body of presentation: • each issue from the Intro is discussed simply and clearly, and conclusions/recommendations made, if relevant • sufficient information and detail are provided • appropriate and adequate use of examples/anecdotes • discussion flowed logically • the material is relevant and new • good sources of reference material were used to prepare the presentation • references included c. Conclusion: • main points summarised adequately - ideas brought to fruition • conclusion linked to Introduction and follow from discussion in the Body • final message is clear and easy to understand • references slide included 3. Coping with questions/facilitating the discussion: • including a section for questions at the end of the power point presentation. This should have at least two questions that might be posed by the audience with an appropriate response to each of the questions.  4. Visual aids: • visual aids clearly visible to the audience • effective use of visual aids (i.e. integrated into the presentation) • students will be marked on their use of PowerPoint. Are the slides easy to read? Are the slides too cluttered? Do they contain the main points? Is there good use of diagrams/pictures where appropriate? Are the slides consistent? Is good use made of PowerPoint techniques such as slide transitions and animation or is it inconsistent and distracting? 5. Handouts: • handouts well–prepared and useful • materials in the handouts consistent with the slides • handouts well-formatted 6. Scripts: • scripts well–prepared and useful • materials in the scripts consistent with the slides • scripts well-formatted
