The purpose of this project was to analyze past Showcase Events and gather new data to determine the areas within Showcase planning and implementation that required improvement or enhancement. Through surveys, interviews, and the use of various analysis tools, the Planners determined that the root causes of last year’s Showcase complications were the limited location and provided services, in addition to insufficient communication and time management through the Implementation Phase.
To improve the 2013 Showcase implementation, the Planners have determined that the 2013 BCIT BOM Showcase Event will be held:
- at the Hilton Vancouver Metrotown on April 15th, 2013 between the hours of 5:30 pm to 9:00 pm
- in the theme of technology in business, with the slogan ‘Tech-ing Business to the Next Level’
- with the proposed budget of $8,412.36
- through sponsorship; sought in coordination with the proposed sponsorship tier system.
The benefits of the implementation plan include the improved direction, organization, and time management of the implementation phase from past years, as well as increased industry attendance at the event and subsequent job offers for BOM students. The plan also promotes better documentation and record keeping, which will be beneficial for future implementations.
The implementation plan has since been approved as the proposed solution for the 2013 Showcase Event and will proceeding as of January 2, 2013.
