IT and Management
In this course you learn about managerial challenges related to development, implementation and management of IT solutions in organizations. A specific focus is on the challenges posed by socio-technical, complex, large-scale and interconnected IT solutions. The lectures and readings in the course present approaches, models and frameworks found in IT management practices, and offer a research-based view on the topics. You will participate in a project where you apply this knowledge to an empirical study within a real-world organization.
After you have completed the course you can:
- describe common approaches, models and frameworks for IT management and governance, project management and enterprise architectures in organizations.
- describe theoretical perspectives on the opportunities and challenges associated with IT governance, project management and enterprise architectures.
- discuss the challenges of inter-organizational and sector-wide IT governance.
- describe the connection between governance models and enterprise architectures.
- can plan, organize, and report from a project where you collect and analyze data to document and assess the IT governance model of an organization.
- utilize your practical and theoretical basis for critical reflection on how IT is managed in organizations.
