· At professional conferences, blocks of time may be set aside for what are termed “poster sessions.” A hotel ballroom or large open area will be ringed with individuals who use displays such as posters or electronic presentations displayed via projectors. These sessions provide an opportunity to share one’s research in an intimate setting, with a small group gathered around who share a similar interest. The seminar format of this course is very similar to this academic exchange. During one set of paired weeks, you will be appointed as a Group Leader. If you are one of the Group Leaders for this week, you are to prepare an academic presentation, much like a poster session. Your presentation should present analysis and synthesis of prior research and will begin the interaction with your colleagues. You will prepare an academic paper of between 5–7 pages in APA format, as well as a PowerPoint presentation of 7–10 slides. This analysis will be an open-ended introduction to relevant topics of study regarding e-commerce management information systems. Your goal, as the presenter, should be to persuade your discussants that the approach(es) you have analyzed and synthesized is/are a sound means for discovering new methods to manage information systems. You should acknowledge that there are other models, or means to study MIS, but you should strive to be as persuasive as possible that the specific concepts you have reviewed are exciting research avenues and that they are potentially breakthrough areas for advancing the understanding of information systems, especially related to e-commerce. Your paper and presentation should contain the following elements: · An incorporation and analysis of at least 5 of the required resources from this pair of weeks · The incorporation and analysis of 5 additional resources from the Walden Library · An identification of principal schools of thought, tendencies in the academic literature, or commonalities that define the academic scholarship regarding your topic · An evaluation of the main concepts with a focus on their application to management practice and their impact on positive social change In addition to the above elements, the Group Leader(s) for this week will focus thematically on: · Define each of the universally used acronyms, terms and concepts listed below. For each, give examples where appropriate, and compare and contrast related concepts (like structured and unstructured problems): · o TPS o MIS o DSS o Structured problem o Unstructured problem o Problem-solving process o Decision-making process · Evaluate the research regarding group decision-making systems and executive information systems. Be sure to demonstrate your ability to identify the purpose or goals of each type of system, the typical inputs, outputs and other components, and the typical users. Provide examples whenever relevant. Post your 5-7 page paper and your PowerPoint presentation as attached files to your initial posting . · · Fichman, R. G., & Kemerer, C. F. (1999).
