Q1. Create a blog about a business issue or topic that interests you and that provides content that is valuable to others. You should develop the blog with a specific audience in mind (your classmates), and provide original, insightful entries. You will write five entries on your blog that meet the needs of your target audience. You should also think about developing your own personal brand ? how you want to present yourself through the blog (your personality should come out through your blog but remember to be professional). For each blog post, consider applying the following formula:
- One or two takeaway messages
- A catchy title & opening
- A winning tone for the blogs ? helpful, personalized, positive, informative, fun & interesting
- Hyperlinks to interesting articles, videos, etc.
- Use images if you like
- Use concise writing with short paragraphs
You don’t have to describe a lot. just a small paragraph of each bullet point.
Here are some free blog platforms you can select from to create your blog:
- WordPress (Links to an external site.)
- Wix (Links to an external site.)
- Tumblr (Links to an external site.)
- Let me know which one you gonna use. i will create a account and send it to you.
Q2. Editorials are great examples of persuasive writing. Find an editorial from a newspaper or electronic source. Tell us what the editorial was about. Was the writing persuasive? Why or why not? What would have made the writing more effective?
each answer separately. 2 sentences is good for each questions.
Q3. Read the following scenario and then respond to each of the questions below. Ensure that you utilize APA formatting for your case study questions, including the citation of any resources used.
West Star Marinas is a chain of twelve marinas that offer lakeside service to boaters; service and repair of boats, motors, and marine equipment; and sales of boats, motors, and other marine accessories. The systems development project team at West Star Marinas has been hard at work on a project that will eventually link all the marina’s facilities into one unified, networked system.
The project team has developed a use-case diagram of the current system. This model has been carefully checked. Last week, the team invited a number of system users to role-play the various use cases, and the use cases were found to the users’ satisfaction. Right now, the project manager feels confident that the as-is system has been adequately represented in the use-case diagram.
The director of operations for West Star is the sponsor of this project. He sat in on the role-playing of the use cases and was very pleased by the thorough job the team had done in developing the model. He made it clear to you, the project manager, that he was anxious to see your team begin work on the use cases for the to-be system. He was a little skeptical that it was necessary for you team to spend any time modeling the current system in the first place but grudgingly admitted that the team really seemed to understand the business after going through that work.
The methodology that you are following, however, specifies that the team should now turn its attention to developing the structural models for the as-is system. When you stated this to the project sponsor, he seemed confused and a little irritated. “You are going to spend even more time looking at the current system? I thought you were done with that! Why is this necessary? I want to see some progress on the way things will work in the future!”
- What is your response to the director of operations?
- Why do we perform structural modeling?
- Is there any benefit to developing a structural model of the current system at all? Why or why not.
- How do the use cases and use-case diagrams help us develop the structural model?
