You might have read about Analysis one, two and three in the literature. Do you carry out these analyses in the assignment?
'Analysis one' is to state who the Client ( who caused the study to happen) is; potential problem-owner/solvers; these inform a range of systems to model. So 'Yes'.
Analysis two is to identify roles+norms+values – a 'cultural' analysis . We haven't looked at this , you will probably interpret some aspects implicitly.
Analysis Three is a 'political ' analysis that informs your choice of systems and 'recommendations for change'. However this is theoretically difficult to pin down. In SSM studies thinking about'commodities of power, how power is passed on etc is sometimes discussed. Whether you wish to question aspects that you can read into the case I leave to you.
