You will find plenty of articles giving advice on data analytics for decision making. For a couple of articles, click on these links –
Your prototype will be accompanied by a business report with a research component. This means that you have substantial scholarly work to do and are expected to investigate beyond just the lectures and reading material provided. The research component in this assessment builds on your project proposal research. You should demonstrate an ability to analyse critically, think reflectively, argue persuasively, and to synthesise the argument with source material.
The business report is expected to contain the development process and user guide.
The research component is expected to contain a brief discussion of relevant issues related to the search for alleged disproportionate spending for political advantage – around 4 – 5 relevant articles particularly from industry sources.
