  • Overview

    The objective of this course is to present current issues in the management of the information systems resource. This course is centred around the fundamental premise that the primary role of information technology is to provide organisations with strategic advantage by facilitating problem solving, increasing productivity and quality, increasing speed, improving customer service, enhancing communication and collaboration, and enabling business process restructuring. Rather than focusing on the technology itself, the emphasis is placed on the innovative uses of information technologies. In addition, the course will expose participants to debates on current issues in business information management and to create an awareness of the usefulness and limitations of information systems in organisations.
