Strategic Management and Implementation
This case-based course is designed to assist the student to understand the basics of strategic planning and to investigate how to translate a strategy into information processes, systems and deliverables. The goals will be, first, to understand the basics of strategic planning as it applies to a business, to a business function (e.g. IT, Marketing, Operations, etc.) or to product management. The next two goals will be to assess strategic management and implementation from two perspectives: from implementing the IS/IT needs of a business based on its overall strategy, and from developing an IS/IT product -- from concept to business case. The format of this course will be based largely on case study analysis and discussion, with text material and lectures to provide background for the analyses.
