Week 10 assignment – summary report and executive presentation | CIS 498 – Information Technology Capstone | Strayer University

Overview

Now that you have put together the pieces of your project, you are being asked by the CEO to present this information to the board. 

From: PM
To: Project Team
CC: CEO/CIO
The CEO has requested a presentation to the board from your part of the team. You will put together a report summarizing everything you’ve created so far for your part of the project. Outline the material about the company as you understand it, including all about our product and the players on the team. Then include all your plans and the business requirements from your part of the team, which is the most important part of this project. Without you, the board of directors won’t likely approve the budget and this project will fail. (No pressure.)  
After you’ve created the report, we’ll need a 10–15 slide PowerPoint presentation. Please use MS PowerPoint as the boss doesn’t have anything else on the machine that has been issued by the company.  
Use bulleted lists to boil down the main points on the slides, and use the speaker notes to include all the facts and figures you want to present. You won’t have to present this at the board meeting because the boss wants to present it personally. So make sure it’s a good presentation with a professional layout. We’re all counting on you to make or break the project.

Instructions

This assignment contains two parts: a summary report and a presentation. 

Summary Report

For the summary report, submit a written document to summarize what you have created for your part of the project. This includes the following:

  •  An outline of the company as you understand it, including your product and the players on the team. 
  • Your plans and business requirements from your part of the team.

Keep in mind that this is to be presented to the board in order to gain approval for the project. Your language should be professional in nature and include all helpful information in a condensed, easy-to-understand format.

Presentation

In addition to the report, create a 10–15 slide PowerPoint presentation using MS PowerPoint. You need to use the PPT Template file from your company so that it is consistent with other company visuals.

Use bulleted lists to boil down the main points on the slides. Again, this should also be professional in nature and in a condensed and easy-to-understand format. Use a consistent and professional layout, and be sure to check for spelling and grammar errors before submitting.

Add speaker notes to each slide to include all the facts and figures you want to present and any other notes regarding what should be emphasized by the speaker.

As a reminder, the deliverables for this week are:

  1. Word document: A summary (not a cut and paste) of your previous three deliverables, including the overview of the company, the process flow, and the business requirements including the budgetary requests for the project.
  2. A PowerPoint slide presentation of 10–15 slides with professional slides and speaker notes.
