It's been a while since we last had IPT. Today we will be closing off our look at the 'second' process, organising. And that means a look at the social and ethical issues in a case study!

In a new classwork post, complete the following:
  1. Outline the Y2K Bug and how it relates to the organising process.
  2. Identify some of the problems that analysts were anticipating due to the bug, and compare these with the problems that actually did occur on 1 January 2000.
  3. Describe the actions taken by governments and private organisations in preparation for Y2K.
  4. Discuss the social and ethical issues raised by the Y2K Bug.
