UCBS7040 Information Management Assessment

University of Cumbria and Robert Kennedy College

General Instructions – Please read carefully

You are required to complete the assessment outlined below and submit your completed final document through the RKC Online Campus by the end of Unit 6. Your grade will be based 100% on this final document, to which you will also receive written feedback.

In addition, you must upload part of your draft of the above document by the end of Unit 3 (see Interim Assignment, below). This draft will not be graded, but it is an important way of monitoring your progress. Formative feedback on your draft will be given, and general feedback with respect to the topic(s) covered in the interim assignment will be posted on the Forum after Unit 3 has been completed.

Your paper must have a clear structure and must include:

  • Cover page (an example is available to you in Induction/Unit 4)
  • Abstract (no more than 150 words in a single paragraph)
  • Table of contents (Table of tables/figures if necessary)
  • A subsection for each of the five questions of the assessment - no more than 4500 words in total
  • References (or Bibliography) – at Master level you must use in-text citations to support your arguments and any work cited must appear in the References list at the end of the work

Please ask any questions about the interim assignment and final assessment in the Forum

Final Assessment – 4,500 words

For all questions below, “an organisation of your choice” ideally means “your organisation”, an organisation you are currently working with/for, or have done so in the recent past. This will allow you to develop a much more critical analysis of internal processes and characteristics of the organisation. You are specifically asked NOT to discuss Apple, Google, Amazon, Zara, Walmart, etc., unless you work there

Questions:

  1. Conduct a literature review that critically discusses the concepts of Information Governance & Information Security and their importance in information management. Find and discuss relevant literature (peer-reviewed literature is preferred, such as journal articles, conference articles, with books, white papers, practitioner literature, and blog articles having a little less weight).

Weight: 20% of the final mark

After reading the Procter and Gamble case study (Unit 2), critically discuss the role and responsibilities of senior leadership in information governance in the context of Procter and Gamble

Weight: 15% of the final mark

In an organisation of your choice, perform a critical analysis of their use of information systems and information technology (including cloud services and social media) and how this impacts on staff development, effective flows of communication, and decision making in the organisation

Weight: 20% of the final mark

Building on your analysis from question #3, critically evaluate possible improvements to the organisation’s use of information systems with emphasis on staff development in line with organisational goals, effective flows of communication, and decision making in the organisation

Weight: 15% of the final mark

Critically analyse the importance of security in information management in your organisation in particular

Weight: 15% of the final mark

The remaining 15% of the final mark will be dependent on the quality of Harvard referencing and bibliography, as well as the general presentation of your paper. Conduct a literature review that critically discusses the concepts of Information Governance & Information Security and their importance in information management.

Interim Assignment UCBS7040 Information Management Assessment

The Interim assignment requires you to submit, by the end of Unit 3, a draft of the final assessment to Turnitin. Your draft will not be assessed, and it will only cover topics covered in the first three units – we suggest by that time you should have roughly a 1500 to 2000 words paper.

A critical literature review on Information Governance and Information Security (20%)

An excellent review, demonstrating independent research (relevant and recent sources, from academic as well as practitioner sources) and critical thinking (engaging with sources rather than taking them at face value; discussing their limitations, strengths and weaknesses)

A good review that demonstrates some independent research and critical engagement with sources.

A good review, showing independent research, although sources are not always trustworthy, are taken at face value, or are outdated.

A reasonably good review, showing little independent research, although sources are not always trustworthy, are taken at face value, or are outdated.

A poor review, showing little or no evidence of independent research and critical thinking.

Critically reflect on the senior manager`s role and responsibility in leading information governance in P&G case study (15%)

An excellent reflection, very well written, making full use of the information in the case study as well as relevant literature. Use of theoretical frameworks (such as “five rights”, CIA, etc.) to support the analysis of the roles and responsibilities of senior leadership. Technical issues, cultural issues, security and legal implications of data location, the importance of the “one truth” for decision making are all considered, and more. Coherent and fully justified conclusions.

A good reflection, well written, making good use of the information in the case study as well as relevant literature for the topic, but more integration of theoretical frameworks in practice would be needed.

A good reflection, making some use of existing theoretical frameworks to build and support the argument, which may sometimes lack in clarity. Few issues may be weakly explored.

A reasonably good reflection, making some use of existing theoretical frameworks to build and support the argument, which may sometimes lack in clarity.

Some issues may be weakly explored.

A poor written analysis, with limited support from existing theoretical frameworks, and many of the issues are ignored.

A very poor analysis, with little if any link between theory and practice, or not at all attempted.

 

 

Critical appraisal of the use of information systems in an organisation (20%)

An excellent analysis of inner-facing and outer-facing social media; of corporate infrastructure, including cloud services in use, their type, advantages and disadvantages for the organisation; operations management; data collection and use for adding added value to the organisation’s operations are all considered to a high level of excellence. The organisation’s

particular context is taken into

A good analysis of a chosen organisation, that discusses some of the most obvious aspects of the use of information systems, with good consideration for the organisation’s context

A reasonably good analysis that takes into account a specific organisation and discusses most of the relevant aspects, but misses some of the obvious ones. The organisation’s context may be only partially taken into account in the analysis.

A sufficient analysis that takes into account a specific organisation and discusses some of the relevant aspects, but misses many of the obvious ones. The organisation’s context may be only partially taken into account in the analysis.

The analysis is limited and does not take into account the context of an organisation or does so only very poorly. Many if not all of the aspects of information systems’ use are ignored.

Little evidence of understanding of the issues surrounding information systems and their use in an organisation.

 

account in each and every aspect.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Critical evaluation of possible improvements to the organisation’s use of information systems (15%)

An excellent proposal for possible improvements to the organisation’s use of IMS, in terms of infrastructure, use of the cloud, use of data, use of social media (internally and externally), with a focus on staff development, communication, decision making. All aspects fully discussed and properly supported by relevant theoretical frameworks and the previous analysis.

A good proposal for possible improvements to the organisation’s use of IMS, with few areas that needed more attention and stronger support from the previous analysis or existing literature

A reasonably good proposal for possible improvements to the organisation’s use of IMS, with some areas that needed more attention and stronger support from the previous analysis or existing literature.

A rather limited proposal for possible improvements to the organisation’s use of IMS, with many areas that needed more attention and stronger support from the previous analysis or existing literature.

A poor proposal for possible improvements to the organisation’s use of IMS, with limited coverage of many of the aspects, and stronger support from the previous analysis or existing literature was needed.

Little evidence of understanding of the issues surrounding information systems and the way they can be used to improve aspects of organisational life.

 

Critical analysis of the importance of security in information management in a case study organisation (15%)

An excellent discussion of the risk landscape around information management in general and in the chosen organisation; types of risks (internal, external, malicious, unintended, natural disasters) and possible impact (operation, legal, financial) and mitigation. Fully supported by existing literature and great evidence of a logically developed conceptual framework.

A good discussion of the risk landscape around information management, which covers most aspects. Stronger support from existing literature may have been needed.

A reasonably good discussion of the risk landscape around information management, which covers most aspects but misses a few. Stronger integration of theory and practice was needed.

A sufficiently good discussion of the risk landscape around information management, which covers some of the relevant aspects but misses a large part. Much stronger integration of theory and practice was needed.

The analysis is limited and only touches on a few of the aspects, with little evidence of a logically developed conceptual framework.

No real analysis, with no logical development and little or no integration of theory and practice. Conduct a literature review that critically discusses the concepts of Information Governance & Information Security and their importance in information management.
