USQ has a licence for Turnitin software. This online software enables students to check their assignment prior to submission. I encourage all students to use this facility to avoid allegations of academic misconduct from unintentional plagiarism from internet sources.
Referencing requirements for assignment 4
References are required and the Harvard AGPS standard of referencing must be used. Plagiarism, collusion and cheating will be severely penalised as per the Academic Integrity Procedure Penalty Schedule.
Ensure that your reports are fully referenced, including any reference to the text book. Your report should include in-text references and a List of References.
Another useful link on referencing is from USQ’s Library site:
http://www.usq.edu.au/library/referencing
Do not repeat verbatim large slabs of information from other sources such as the text – you must put the ideas/information in your own words.
Prepare a journal that records your activities and progress related to completing this assignment.
In date order, clearly list the following:
? Date of research activity/discussion
? Web sites visited to collect information; other references accessed
? Time duration of the activity
Submit this journal as an appendix to activity B. Any references to web pages and online documents, such as white papers, should be listed at the end of the journal.
Structure, presentation and introduction 10%
Your report should include a letter of transmittal, executive summary and introduction to the report.
Part 1. Ongoing ITSM at HBZS 15%
Based on the first and second phase of the ITIL adoption as described in the case study, advise Mr Gurny on future improvements to ITSM at HBZS. For example, should additional ITIL processes be adopted, or should the existing processes be improved?
Part 2. Service Transition 20%
Mr Gurny is aware that the Service Transition phase causes many operational issues in other firms. From your reading of the case and knowledge from the course, discuss the Service Transition processes in place at HBZS and advise Mr Gurney on the critical transition processes and how these processes are inter-related to other ITIL and HBSZ processes.
Part 3. Service Operation 20%
One of current challenges is the possibility that HBZS will totally outsource the IT department. The case mentions a few of the ITIL Service Operation processes and the Service Desk function. Mr Gurney has asked for your advice regarding the benefits and limitations of outsourcing only the Service Desk while maintaining the other functions of the internal IT department.
Part 4. CSI and Business-IT Alignment 15%

Unit 4 – Personal  and professional development in health and social care

Discuss the current service reporting in place, and how it could be extended in the future. What is your advice to Mr Gurney on how he can foster the Business-IT partnership at all levels of the HBZS?
