IT Strategy

  • Number of credits 15 Credits

About the course

Although information technology (IT) has long since become an integral part of modern organisations’ activities it is only in the past 20 years that the strategic significance of IT has been illustrated in literature. The development of Internet based technology from the mid 1990s until today has increased the strategic importance of information technology, which is reflected in the IT budgets found in organisations in both the public and private sectors. The starting point for the course is that today’s IT intensive age demands new strategic approaches. Against this background the course covers, firstly, the concepts and models which can be used to identify and understand the strategic significance of information technology and, secondly, detailed studies of innovation strategies and global IT strategies.
