Prior to writing your report, you must submit a short (a page and half) Project Proposal, indicating the name and relevant aspect(s) of the organization you intend to use as a subject for your report. The proposal must be accompanied by an annotated bibliography submitted via the assignment folder. Your instructor will provide feedback as to the suitability of your subject and bibliography. Additional details are provided below.
You will submit a project proposal of your Risk Assessment Report by the end of Session 4. The project proposal will account for 10% of your research paper grade (2.5% of your total course grade).
The project proposal should be a page and half (double spaced) description of the organization that you propose to analyze, with a summary of the scope (e.g., entire organization, key business area, major system, etc.) for the risk assessment you are expected to conduct. The proposal should identify the subject organization with a brief explanation of why you chose the subject for this assignment. The proposal should also describe the research methods to be used and anticipated sources of research information sources. Your instructor will use the proposal to provide feedback on the suitability of the proposed subject organization and the scope you propose, as well as the suitability of the proposed research methods and information sources. If you do not provide a proposal, you will be preparing their Risk Assessment Reports “at risk;” i.e., they will run the risk of delivering a report that is not suitable for this course.
