Paper Structure: (Keep in mind that the three sections below do not represent paragraphs. Your paper should be composed of several paragraphs)
First, you will find a business process from an industry that has been directly affected by COVID-19 (health industry, food industry, entertainment industry, etc.) and identify and explain how that industry used to conduct business pre-COVID. Make sure the industry and the business process you choose is related to Information Systems and that it has a clear business process you can identify and break down in steps. For this part of your paper, be sure to include:
- What is the industry and what is the business process you will explain?
- What were the pre-COVID steps to complete the busines process?
- What was the ultimate goal of the activity (of the process)?
- What was/were the transaction(s) that occurred during the business process?
Second, revisit that same activity but under the current COVID situation and share:
- How has the activity/process changed?
- What are the steps now?
- What has been the most significant change in the process?
- Why are these changes to the process necessary under COVID conditions?
- Do you still achieve the same goal in the end?
Finally, wrap up your paper by discussing the implications of the change. Be specific and use examples. Address the following:
- Will there be more changes to the process post-COVID?
- Will the process evolve, remain, or return to pre-COVID status? why or why not?
- Do you foresee a full new process altogether? Yes, no, why?
- What should informed users know about these changes and how should they think of them moving forward?
