About the course

The course takes its starting point in that organizations need the ability to both sense and respond to entrepreneurial opportunities and threats, and that this ability is becoming increasingly important because of the ongoing digital transformation. Against this background, the course includes two specific themes, business analytics and organizational change. The business analysis is done through data analysis as analysis of data sets are becoming an increasingly important source of insight into the activities and changes, both internally within the organization and externally. In this course data analysis is treated both from a theoretical and practical perspective as students will work with literature in the field, and practical application of computer software for data analysis. The practical application includes analyzing data from various operations and results in the creation of decision recommendations. The second theme of the course, organizational change, also encompasses a theoretical and practical perspective as students will gain theoretical insights about the subject, and then apply these by developing recommendations for appropriate organizational change and implementation proposals.
