Conduct Gap Analysis
Using the information reviewed in Task 1 of the project, and the Evaluate impact of changes resource pack (msd_e2_impact), learners should be able to complete a gap analysis, using the template provided.
The aim is to get learners to look at what the business has in place, and what they would like to have in place in the future. Gaps that exist between these two must be mapped. The items/ resources needed to ‘fill’ these gaps is documented.
Learners must consider all possible options for new system solutions. They must be described in detail. The options may encompass a variety of choices, including:
reductions to staff
reductions of buildings/ offices
change of location
improvement to the manual system
It is envisaged that learners will focus on the e‑commerce solution to be the major option available to the business.
**Learners are required to submit the gap analysis and the list of options to the facilitator. The facilitator should ensure that learners have considered all appropriate gaps and options.
