Milestone 4: MIS Final Submission
There’s a rumor going around the coffee break room that if you conduct thorough research on the five selected MIS topics and submit a scholarly, well-reasoned and composed document, the “powers that be” are certain to promote you into that management position for which you have labored and worked so diligently. If you can produce some critical analyses that will give the upper management folks a clear picture of the bottom line with respect to which MIS solutions could greatly benefit the company, you will be certain to receive an offer of a larger office along with a hefty pay raise. This is all part of the career plan that you first developed at ERAU.
Milestone 4 Deliverable
Before you begin working on Milestone 4, make sure that you go back and review the Research Project: Milestones Guide and Resources page.
Begin working on Milestone 4 by first resaving the corrected Milestone 3 document as a new Milestone 4 working document. Rename the corrected Milestone 3 file, changing the Milestone number in the filename from “3” to “4.”
The directions for Milestone 4 are similar to Milestone 3. Review the five Management Information System topics from the list that you selected while working on the Milestone 1 assignment. Conduct research and compose scholarly data on the last one of the topics remaining in the list.
You are required to compose a minimum two new pages of data in the Body of Text section for the one new topic that you chose for this Milestone. You are therefore required to submit a minimum of ten full pages of double-spaced text in the Body of Text section in the Milestone 4 assignment (four pages created in Milestone 2, four created in Milestone 3, and two created in Milestone 4).
The Title Page, Abstract, Conclusion, and Reference List pages are not considered part of the Body of Text section.
A minimum of five primary reference sources outside of the course textbook are required to be cited and referenced in the Milestone 4 assignment document submission.
As you do your research, keep up the Reference List page and make notes for the Conclusion page of your final draft document.
Use Turnitin to screen for citation and plagiarism issues; this submission does go into the main repository.
The Milestone 4 Rubric will be used to grade your Milestone 4 assignment submission.
Allow enough time after researching the last topic to complete the Abstract, Conclusion and Reference List pages of your paper. Don’t forget to save a copy of your final draft for safe keeping.
Throughout the different stages of working on your Research Project paper, use the Research Project Discussion to ask questions or share information that may help your peers. This is mainly a peer-to-peer and instructor-to-class forum. Side discussions are welcome but know that all of the students in the course can review your posted data and comments. Your instructor will check the posts to ensure that the questions being asked are answered accurately or to clarify statements.
