Virtually all business strategy now depends to some extent on effective IT. This unit gives students the confidence to manage and work effectively with information systems (IS), the related enabling technologies, and information technology (IT) professionals. The unit addresses IT strategy (including the links between IT strategy and organisational strategy); and considers advances in IT that enable increasing efficiencies, and new organisational initiatives. The unit also considers the structure, governance, and management of the IS function, and relationships with external suppliers and vendors. The goal is to equip students with the capacity to adequately plan for their organisation's use of IT to support, and sometimes shape, business strategy. This unit is primarily a strategy unit, not a technology unit.
