Beesington and Sons case study 2

Beesington and Sons Case Study Assignment Instructions.

You should write the case study in such a way that you start your answers from line 1. That is, there is no need for large introductions that we see in essays. You should apply the principles you have learned from lecture material/tutorials/readings that are specific to the case study. Beesington and Sons Case Study 2 answers should be written in narrative form (i.e. sentences not bullet points), and should be between 2400-3000 words long, single spaced. You should provide a list of references at the end of the case. More marks are gained by the quality of research applied in practice and the overall quality of the answer. Please Note: Overall word count does not include Tables and Figures which you are free to use if required. You should include in your case study:
1. A cover sheet with your Name, ID, Course Name, Lecturer, Semester and Date of Submission;
2. There is no need to use turn-it-in with your case study;
3. Please quote from relevant texts and readings to support your answers. Answers in the narrative section of your case answers unsupported by readings will be regarded as guesswork and generalisations and will not pass the case assessment;
4. If you feel a need to attach some other interesting report or facts not required in the main body of your case answer, please add this as an appendix. Then in your text close to where you discuss this, you should add in brackets (please seen Appendix 1). Please see the Style Guide below for how to use references in your case studies. Task/Questions for the case can be found at the conclusion of the case.
Individual Case Study 2
Use the Beesington and Sons Case Study information from Case Study 1.
Task required: Based on your analysis of Beesington and Sons Case Study in Case Study 1, you are now required to continue your external change advice to the Board. Case study 2 requires you to apply change intervention ideas to solve the company’s range of change issues. Use the same list of issues and assumptions from Case Study 1. However, if needed, add additional relationship and behavioural assumptions based on less than perfect information as follows:
1. Based on Readings McFillen et al (Reading 11), Rafferty et al (Reading 12) and Barratt-Pugh et al (Reading 13) what is the relationship between change readiness and change agents? Please use examples to support your answer. Use Hayes (Chapter 13) as a reference point as well (600-750 words).
2. Based on your analysis of Beesington and Sons Case Study, now adapt and redraw Figure 15.7 and 15.8 in Hayes Chapter 15. Explain the reason why you placed an ‘X’ where you did and use facts from the case to support your answers (400-500 words).
3. Use an open systems diagram similar to Figure 3.1.2 (Module 3) at the organisation level to outline the inputs, processes, outputs of BTS. Populate each box with at least 3 numbered points and a brief description of the points. Then below the Table, describe in more detail each point (500-600 words).
4. Using Kotter’s Integrative model of organisational dynamics (Hayes, Chapter 7), redraw and adapt the Figure to suit your analysis of BTS. Now using facts from the problem statement plus your own assumptions from Case Study 1, explain your analysis using the short, medium and long term as described in Chapter 7 (500-600 words).
5. Using implementation examples from the Norwegian Civil Aviation Industry (Reading 16), what can the BTS Board learn from these failures? What parallels exist between BTS and Avinor? (400-550 words).
Please Note: Use a minimum of 15 references (including the one’s listed above) to support your answer

This assignment is based on the Demo database in the Jedox package and all the required reading materials that we have covered in this subject.
Assignment Question
On the request of the CEO of Demo Inc., the good folks from Jedox have created a cube for Demo Inc. (the Demo database in Jedox). The objective of this case analysis is to demonstrate to the CEO the value of developing relevant business analytics capabilities. The CEO of Demo Inc. has asked you and your team to analyze the Demo database and
(a) report three insights that you have discovered through your analysis and recommend to the CEO on what business value could be created based on each of those insights. Support your analysis by providing in an Appendix six printouts of your Jedox analysis and descriptions of the Jedox functionalities that you employed in your analysis. It is important for you and your team to remember that the case analysis report will be read by the CEO whose knowledge and understanding of business intelligence and business analytics would be approximately equivalent to you or your team members before your enrolment in this subject. This means that you need to explain certain terms and concepts clearly for an intelligent and astute business executive without an in-depth technical knowledge.
(b) three structural and process changes that you recommend that Demo Inc. need to consider undertaking in order to capture value from its investments in business analytics capabilities. Your recommendation needs to identify known or thinkable barriers to implementing the necessary structural and process changes. Here a literature review of the required reading materials and beyond is highly desirable.
(c) Justify your recommendations in (b). Your justifications should clearly draw upon the textbook and the required readings studied in this subject. Here you and your team members are highly encouraged to read further any relevant journal articles or previously published BI and/or business analytics case studies available on industry websites. In-text citations and the proper referencing needs to be provided for full marks.

Public Policy Course Design

This course is designed to explore public policy and the impact on society. The course examines various components of public policy development, including conception, design and the impact on society through governmental and political influences. It is the examination on how policy influences or regulates change in response to issues affecting society.
The first part of the course examines public policy development and analysis, models of policies, and the process associated with policy development. During the next few weeks, we examine different rationales, strategies, and the impact of public policy on social groups and society as a whole. Such initial study provides the basis for moving forward with the major project and the foundation appropriate to examining public policy and problem solutions recommendations. The remainder of the course will focus on the significant political issues communities face.
The class sessions not only present theoretical content, but provide opportunities to apply the content to a broader understanding of public policy development, evaluation, and implementation. The summary paper focuses on a student identified issue in development and evaluation of a public policy, to include the impact on government and society.
