SLP Assignment Question
How did the Scrum project increased project morale, schedule, and transparency? Describe the project experience emerged from the architectures, requirements, and design as well as the experience from the Scrum self-organizing teams.
To answer the assignment question, your paper should be 2–3 pages double-spaced not including the cover page and reference list. Take a definite stand on the issues and develop your supporting argument carefully. Use material from the Background information and any other sources you can find to support specific points in your arguments. Avoid making assertions for which you cannot find other than your own opinion.
SLP Assignment Expectations
You will be particularly assessed on:
- Precision: You see what the module is all about and structure your paper accordingly. You draw on a range of sources and establish your understanding of the historical context of the question. You carry out the exercise as assigned or carefully explain the limitations that prevented your completing some parts. (Running out of time is not generally considered an adequate limitation.)
- Support for assertions: You use examples, citations (especially from the required readings), and elaboration to support assertions. You provide evidence that you have read the required background materials.
- Clarity: Your answers are clear and show your good understanding of the topic. You see what the module is all about and structure your paper accordingly.
- Critical thinking: The paper incorporates your reactions, examples, and applications of the material to business and illustrates your reflective judgment and good understanding of the concepts. It is important to read the “Required Reading” in the Background material plus other sources you find relevant.
- Breadth and depth: You provide informed commentary and analysis—simply repeating what your sources say does not constitute an adequate paper. The scope covered in your paper is directly related to the questions of the assignment and the learning outcomes of the module.
- Overall quality: You apply the professional language and terminology of systems design and analysis correctly and in context; you are familiar with this language and use it appropriately. Your paper is well written and the references, where needed, are properly cited and listed (refer to the APA Purdue Online Writing Lab at https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/560/01/ if you are uncertain about formatting or other issues.
