Students are expected to complete both subtasks.Subtask 1: Case StudyPercentage Value of Task: 7.5%Minimum Time Expectation: 10 hoursAssume that Mr. McBright is an employee of a company called NewAge Pty Ltd, which develops operating systems for atablet computer manufacturer by name XYZ Pty Ltd. Mr. McBright is in charge of testing the proper functioning of theoperating system and endorsing them prior to their released to XYZ Pty Ltd. Mr. McBright reports to Mrs McDonald, whohas become so complacent with his position within NewAge Pty Ltd that he takes every step to protect it. For example, hedoes not want to develop himself for a higher-level position, neither does he train or sponsor any of his subordinates forfurther career development. Mrs McDonald also does not employ anyone who appears to be much more competent thanhimself. Furthermore, to Mrs McDonald, the most important criteria for hiring new employees is the college that theyattended. The management philosophy of Mrs McDonald has resulted in many incompetent employees at NewAge Pty Ltd,resulting in somewhat shoddy work.XYZ Pty Ltd contracted NewAge Pty Ltd to develop a software at the cost of A$2 million. Just prior to handing over of theoperating system to XYZ Pty Ltd, Mr. McBright discovered a bug in it, although it could provide its intended basic functions. Page 1of 4ITECH7402 PROFESSIONAL IT CULTURE ITECH7402_Task3_Individual written task specification.docxShe reported her discovery to Mrs McDonald, but they colluded to keep the finding secret in order to meet project schedule.Eventually the new operating system with its bug was released to XYZ Pty Ltd. XYZ Pty Ltd installed the operating systemon 20,000 newly-manufactured tablet computers using the buggy operating system acquired from NewAge Pty Ltd withoutknowing the deficiency. Five weeks after releasing the first set of tablets running the faulty operating system, the softwarecreated a virus which destroyed all the customer records of Badluck Bank which acquired some of the tablets. Four monthsafter the release of the second set of tablets manufactured from the faulty operating system one of the tablets burst intoframes, burning an office.An investigation into the two accidents revealed that:1. The main cause of the two accidents was that the tablets involved were manufactured using buggy operatingsystem acquired from NewAge Pty Ltd.2. NewAge Pty Ltd has four branches located in four countries, and the employees at each branch have different setof skills. However, Mrs McDonald has the habit of not making good use of the skills of his colleagues working fromother branches than where he sits. 3. The main cause of the bug in the software was the lack of current best practices for software development atNewAge Pty Ltd as Mrs McDonald has not mentored his staff for career development for a long time. Also, MrsMcDonald employs only people of his alma mater.The authorities of the council of the city (called LivingCity) including its mayor Hon. Joseph Luck, where the headquartersof NewAge Pty Ltd is located, became privy of the saga. As NewAge Pty Ltd is the major employer in LivingCity, the councilclosed its eyes to the saga.
