1.    Apply ETHICS to the case study

2.    Apply SSM to this case study. You are required to perform steps 3 – 7 from one stakeholder perspective.

3.    Identify what role the business analyst will play in addressing the problem(s). What are the issues and challenges that the business analyst will face while analysing the problem for system development?

4.    Contrast agile systems development with any of the other methods (e.g. Ethics, SSM) to illustrate how it can address the issues you have identified in the section 1. It is important that you distinguish between analysis and design to do the contrast. To address this requirement the group must develop a 3 - 5 minute video.
