Preliminaries
? Create an ePortfolio page which you will use to submit your work. Make sure you keep the page private – you do not need to set the visibility of your ePortfolio to public for this assessment task.
Ensure you complete this step. ePortfolios are the best way we have to allow video assignment submissions. Please don’t submit a Word or PDF document unless prior approval is granted by your lecturer.

Part one - Research
The first step to creating your video and report is to explore both the technology and the industry, to understand the potential impacts.
? Write a short description of the technology and the industry (300-500 words each), and add both to your ePortfolio page. You may use any relevant sources, including websites, blogs, tweets, journal articles and textbooks. Ensure you cite any sources appropriately.
If you are unsure of how to reference sources, please review the Academic Integrity Module, or contact a Learning Skills Advisor. Plagiarism is not acceptable!
Part two – Brainstorming disruptions
? For your topic, list at least five ways the technology may change or disrupt the industry (150-200 words each). Include this list on your ePortfolio page.
Disrupt doesn’t necessarily mean bad – it just means a big change. You could think about how Uber disrupted the taxi industry, or how Amazon disrupted the retail industry.
If you are having trouble, remember that this is a creative task – it’s ok for your ideas to be 10 or 30 years in the future. The more you can come up with at this stage the better, even if you think your ideas are completely implausible.
Part three – Disruption ? Choose a single one of your changes or disruptions.
Indicate in your ePortfolio which disruption you choose.
? Identify one process within your industry or activity that would be affected by your chosen disruption. For this process, determine its triggering Event, any Activities, Decision Points, and Actors/Resources, and finally an Outcome.
? Provide a written description of how this process will be affected by your chosen disruption.
? Support your written description with BPMN process models of the process before and after disruption.
The purpose of your models is to show the impact of the technology on the business process; let that guide your level of detail.
Part four – Ethics
? Identify at least four factors or constraints that may regulate the disruption described in part three. Frame these within Lessig’s pathetic dot theory. That is, market, law, architecture, and norms (social/ethical).
At least one of these four factors must be an ethical constraint.
? Write approximately 250 words on each of the factors identified above. Your ethical constraint must be related to an ethics framework, such as Utilitarianism or Deontology.
