A great way to curry favor with managers is to make them look good. Managers often have little time to stay current on reading, particularly longer articles. Knowledge, though, is power, and it’s important for everyone – and particularly essential for those in decision-making positions – to know the latest discussions, discoveries, and dilemmas that are out there. A great skill to hone is the ability to distill a longer article to its essence by summarizing and analyzing its content and points for another. Pretend your manager needs to have a surprise power lunch with her or his manager and doesn’t have time to get current on the latest developments in information technology ethics. You ride to the rescue, bearing a two one-page (250 words) documents, (your summary and your analysis – one page each) summarizing an academic journal article (since you have access to a University library even as an alumni).
It’s okay to reference classic articles for the academic ones; the peer-review process those go through mean information is at least six months old by the time it’s published, anyhow.
Your Academic Article
Choose one academic/scholarly article or presentation, related to information technology ethics, from any relevant academic journal, such as “Ethics and Information Technology” or “Computers in Human Behavior”. The journals are available free of charge via the university online library. You can get assistance on how to use the online library by visiting the Student Services tab in the main Blackboard window. We strongly recommend you go through the BUILD IT modules if you are new to the Bellevue Library: http://lib.bellevue.edu/buildit/index.html.
