Assignment Objective:

This assessment relates to the unit learning outcomes as in the Unit of Study Guide. This assessment is designed to give students skills to explore the latest system analysis and design trends, challenges, and future directions.

Topic and Instructions

Systems Analysis and Design (SAD) is undoubtedly a pillar in the field of Information Systems (IS). Some researchers have even claimed that System Analysis and Design is the field that defines the Information Systems discipline and is the core of information systems. The past decades have seen the development of Structured System Analysis and Design methodologies and Object-Oriented Methodologies. In the early 1990s, key players in the field collaborated to develop the Unified Modelling Language and the Unified Process. Agile approaches followed, as did other dynamic methods. These approaches have still been used in the development of contemporary information systems. At the same time, new approaches such as DevOps and DevSecOps continue to emerge.

Agile software development methods (ASDMs) were created as a solution to the limitations of traditional software development methods. Some of the most practised ASDMs approaches are eXtreme Programming (XP), Scrum, Crystal, Adaptive Software Development (ASD), Lean software development, Dynamic Systems Development Method (DSDM), and Feature Driven Development (FDD). These ASDMs have been used for various purposes in a range of settings, outside of traditional software development contexts.

In this assessment, you need to produce a journal article review for any ONE of the selected ASDM listed below. You are required to review the adaptation practices of the selected ASDM and produce two review articles draft and final reports.

Select ONE (1) of the ASDM for your article from the following:

  • eXtreme Programming (XP),
  • Scrum,
  • Crystal,
  • Adaptive Software Development (ASD),
  • Lean software development,
  • Dynamic Systems Development Method (DSDM),
  • Feature Driven Development (FDD).

You need to search in the literature and find at least ten (10) academic research papers (references) related to this topic. Academic papers can be found in ProQuest or Google Scholar. ProQuest login instructions can be found below. A draft of the review paper (key points/headings) will be submitted initially (refer the draft due date) whereby students can receive feedback. Then students should submit the final research paper in the Blackboard by the last week of the trimester (refer the draft due date). ProQuest login:

Student Assessment Citation and Referencing Rules

Adapted Harvard Referencing Rules

Holmes has implemented a revised Harvard approach to referencing. The following rules apply:

  1. Reference sources in assignments are limited to sources that provide full-text access to the source’s content for lecturers and
  2. The reference list must be located on a separate page at the end of the essay and titled: “References”.
  3. The reference list must include the details of all the in-text citations, arranged A-Z alphabetically by author surname with each reference numbered (1 to 10, ) and each reference MUST

include a hyperlink to the full text of the cited reference source. For example:

Hawking, P., McCarthy, B. & Stein, A. 2004. Second Wave ERP Education, Journal of Information Systems Education, Fallhttp://jise.org/Volume15/n3/JISEv15n3p327.pdf

  1. All assignments must include in-text citations to the listed references. These must include the surname of the author/s or name of the authoring body, year of publication, page number of the content, and paragraph where the content can be For example, “The company decided to implement an enterprise-wide data warehouse business intelligence strategies (Hawking et al., 2004, p3(4)).”

Non-Adherence to Referencing Rules

Where students do not follow the above rules:

  1. For students who submit assignments that do not comply with the rules, a 10% penalty will be applied.
  2. As per the Student Handbook, late penalties will apply each day after the student/s has been notified of the due date.
  3. Students who comply with rules and the citations are “fake” may be reported for academic misconduct.
