About the course

Information technology (IT) is transforming business models, structures and processes, and the instruments for innovation and organisational performance. IT is no longer only a functional resource, rather it is now integrated into the very fabric of many organizations. This course provides an overview of how organisations are using IT in their operations and how envisioned performance improvements can be realized. The focus of the course is on digital transformation which requires an understanding of 1) what the organisation is trying to accomplish, 2) what IT can do, and 3) how to leverage what IT can do to facilitate or enable what the organisation is trying to accomplish. To facilitate development of such understanding, the course deals with issues such as: How do information technologies improve and transform processes, business models, and innovation activities? What structures, processes and managerial actions allow organisations to achieve and sustain organisation performance by leveraging IT? How can we use IT to improve work processes and practices? To explore such issues, the course outlines topics such as business platforms, IT infrastructure, competition in digital markets, IT investments, IT risk management and IT governance.
