Now that you have had an opportunity to use your IT Policy evaluation tool on an actual business IT Policy, it is time to promote the value of your tool to the business as part of the IT strategy. For this task, you will create a comprehensive presentation suitable for an audience consisting of your CIO and director of IT infrastructure, and could also include senior management. You will present and explain the following information:
Provide a high-level overview of the evaluation tool’s components.
Describe the tool’s strengths and weaknesses.
Offer recommendations for the changes needed to make your tool more effective.
Create a new evaluation chart that incorporates your suggested changes (include the new chart in an appendix).
Use your new, improved evaluation tool to re-evaluate the organization’s IT policy from last week.
Describe how the organization’s IT policy evaluation has changed due to your recommended improvements.
Determine if your recommended changes were successful in conducting a more effective evaluation.
Evaluate the strategic value of having effective IT policies and adopting your evaluation tool. Include either Business Continuity Plans (BCP) or Disaster Recovery Plans (DRP) in your description.
Remember, you are formulating a presentation for a real-world scenario. You are not writing an essay. Therefore, write this scenario from a real-world professional perspective, instead of an academic perspective. Be sure to use theories and academic concepts to inform your presentation; however, your focus should be on your solution and on the application of academic concepts in the real world.
Incorporate appropriate animations, transitions, and graphics as well as “speaker notes” for each slide. The speaker notes may be comprised of brief paragraphs or bulleted lists.
Support your presentation with at least five scholarly resources. In addition to these specified resources, other appropriate scholarly resources may be included.
References: Include a minimum of 5 scholarly resources.
Notes Length: 100-150 words for each slide (in lieu of speaker notes, you may record a video of yourself delivering the presentation and submit a link to where the video can be viewed)
