Abstract: A Systems Analysis and Design course should develop both the technical as well as interpersonal skills of each student. Each student must be able to develop and use the various lifecycle models and be able to communicate with end users through these models. By creating interleaved modeling and writing assignments within the Systems Analysis and Design course both objectives can be met. This paper presents a series of integrated modeling and writing assignments-used in a Systems Analysis and Design course-that have been developed to enhance both the technical and interpersonal skills of an IS student.

Keywords: Systems analysis & design, Integrated modeling & writing assignments, Interpersonal/communication skill development, Communication with end users
