This course gives students a thorough grounding in the management of technology in an organisational context, placing particular emphasis on the Chief Information Officer perspective. The unit material complements applied student knowledge with a theoretical technology management foundation. Topics are presented from a textbook and, where appropriate, relevant readings from the contemporary literature are used to present competing points of view. Topics include the information system in the organisation, information system planning, enterprise systems in context, systems to support operations and management, policy development and directive management, and technology economics. Students are introduced to the practical aspects of this area through a series of organisational case studies.
