This capstone unit in the Business Analysis Major of the Bachelor of Information Technology course is designed so that you can demonstrate your learning across the whole course of study before making the transition to the next stage of your career. You are required to demonstrate and apply the skills you have developed in earlier core and business analysis specialisation units by undertaking an authentic task group project or an industry project. Through conceptual thinking and innovative analysis to troubleshoot a complex problem, you will use and document typical project management processes, demonstrate business analysis domain knowledge, and in the process, develop several documents that can be included in a work portfolio to assist future employment. Skills will be demonstrated through conducting a computing group project in which you will produce relevant analysis and process modelling artefacts and generate a project report based on established principles. Working collaboratively within a team, you will identify the needs of diverse stakeholders, potential cyber threats and system vulnerabilities, produce typical project management artefacts associated with a commercial systems development project, communicate regularly, participate in technical progress meetings, and far better manage change.

All on-campus students are expected to attend scheduled classes – in some units, these classes are identified as a mandatory (pass/fail) component and attendance is compulsory. International students, on a student visa, must maintain a full time study load and meet both attendance and academic progress requirements in each study period (satisfactory attendance for International students is defined as maintaining at least an 80% attendance record).
Each 12-credit Undergraduate unit at CQUniversity requires an overall time commitment of an average of 25 hours of study per week, making a total of 300 hours for the unit.
|1. Practical and Written Assessment||70%|
This is a graded unit: your overall grade will be calculated from the marks or grades for each assessment task, based on the relative weightings shown in the table above. You must obtain an overall mark for the unit of at least 50%, or an overall grade of ‘pass’ in order to pass the unit. If any ‘pass/fail’ tasks are shown in the table above they must also be completed successfully (‘pass’ grade). You must also meet any minimum mark requirements specified for a particular assessment task, as detailed in the ‘assessment task’ section (note that in some instances, the minimum mark for a task may be greater than 50%).

The Australian Computer Society (ACS), the professional association for Australia's ICT sector, recognises the Skills Framework for the Information Age (SFIA). SFIA is adopted by organisations, governments, and individuals in many countries and provides a widely used and consistent definition of ICT skills. SFIA is increasingly being used when developing job descriptions and role profiles. ACS members can use the tool MySFIA to build a skills profile.
This unit contributes to the following workplace skills as defined by SFIA 8 (the SFIA code is included):
