IT operations

Assignment Content
You can use the Reynolds case for this paper. But be specific. This isn’t a high-level summary; you need to get into the weeds and offer a plan on how specific technology can be innovative in the environment you choose. I’d lean toward using Reynolds since you’ve done so much work on it already. It’s a long-range plan; where do you want the company to be in the coming years.
For this assignment, you will write a 3-page proposal detailing how you, as a senior IT manager, plan to create a culture of innovation in IT operations and integrate IT innovation into long-range strategic planning. The audience for this plan is senior leadership. Your proposal should include recommendations for specific technology innovations and a rationale for how you expect these innovations to drive business success.


Format your plan according to APA guidelines.


work activities

Analyzing Work Activities & Abilities

The Occupational Information Network (O*NET) is a source of occupational information maintained by the United States Department of Labor. The database contains standardized descriptions of various occupations. Each year, the database is updated after O*NET personnel survey a random sample of incumbent workers in a broad range of occupations. The O*NET Data Collection Program provides several hundred rating scales that are based on the responses of the sampled workers. There are four different questionnaires for the incumbent workers to complete related to occupation and employee characteristics. Personnel consultants complete a questionnaire that focuses on the sample workers’ abilities (O*NET, n.d.).

As a potential personnel consultant, you might collect this data and incorporate it into the next version of the O*NET database. You need to ensure that your rating is reliable by checking that your measure is consistent and the measurement error is reported. You can test reliability using various models. For example, you can test the consistency of your measure through interrater reliability by examining the percentage of agreement between raters.

For this Application Assignment, review work activites from ONET for the job analysis. Presume the purpose of the job analysis will be to construct a selection instrument for the job displayed in the media.

Discussion Topic:

The three leaders who shaped the world from the late 1920’s tp 1945. Joseph Stalin (1879-1953) emerged as the Soviet Union’s leader following the 1924 death of Lenin (1870-1924). Adolph Hitler (1889-1945) took full advantage of German degradation following World War I. Franklin Delano Roosevelt (1882-1945) overcame the obstacles polio posed and became the longest-serving American President.

Compare and contrast these three leaders. How did these individuals affect the world? Why were these men able to rise to power, and maintain their leadership? Finally, interpret why each of these leaders increased the power of government?

    • defines a problem persuasively and accurately
    • proposes a solution or solutions to the problem or issue
    • presents that solution to a decision-maker or group of decision-makers who can implement the recommendation

Topic: You will choose the same topic on which you wrote the memo for writing assignment #3.

Length: 2000-3000 words

Format: Your sources will be cited and listed in APA format.

Writing Process: You will submit a first draft of the report to the assignment folder. The first draft will be given comments by the instructor.  After receiving comments from the instructor, you will submit a revised draft.  The final draft will be graded.

If you do not submit a second draft, the first draft will be graded.

  • Components of the report:
    • letter to the decision maker (this can be a business letter OR a memo)
    • executive summary
    • title page
    • table of contents
    • introduction
    • body of the report to include headings and subheadings
    • conclusion stated as a recommendation for implementation of the solution
    • References page, with references listed in APA format
    • Any appendix (or appendices if there are multiples)

Instructions on how to list an interview in APA format can be seen at the following url:

           Primary and Secondary Sources


The report must incorporate the results of your own primary research. When integrating primary research, you must explain the method(s) you used to gather that research and insert a copy in your report’s appendices of any collection instrument you used.  For example, if you interviewed some people for the report, you would put the list of interview questions you asked in the appendix.  If you arranged for a group of people to take a survey, you would put the survey in the appendix.

The complete report should also cite at least seven secondary sources. At least three of these secondary sources should come from peer-reviewed, scholarly journals.

Students who cannot conduct primary research for safety or other valid reasons are required to provide TEN secondary sources. Of these FOUR should be from peer-reviewed, scholarly journals.

As noted above, your primary and secondary sources will be integrated into the paper to explain the problem, to provide evidence of the problem, and to support the solution.

Please note that, if you interview people for your research, you must cite the interviews in your paper.  In the paper, you cannot simply write that you “spoke with employees.”  A URL that shows how to cite an interview in APA citation style is provided in the list of components for the report.

You might have taken WRTG 393 at UMGC. In WRTG 393, the final paper is a white paper.  This assignment is different from the white paper in WRTG 393.  In this paper for WRTG 394, you are writing to a specific decision-maker about a specific problem in your workplace or community.  The audience is much more focused than that for the white paper in WRTG 393. 


Your report might benefit from graphics.  As mentioned above, pictures of your workplace or community situation might help illustrate the problem you are trying to address.  Graphs, tables, or charts might help show trends that will persuade your decision-maker that the problem exists.

Please do not incorporate a graphic for the sake of incorporating a graphic.  Include a graphic only if it helps communicate a message in your report.

Guides to Help You in Writing this Assignment:

Topic Selection:

For this report, you will write on the same topic on which you wrote the memo for writing assignment #3.  In addition, it should be related to the topic on which you wrote writing assignment #2.  The secondary research you conducted for writing assignment #2 should be usable in some form for this report.
