The unit takes a high-level view of IS development where the focus is on the strategic alignment of IS and business functions in an organisation, which involves planning and discussion of business needs, as well as, negotiation and specification of solutions required by the client organisation, and agreed upon by management. Such solutions often involve development of information systems, and may also include business process improvement, organizational change, and strategy and policy development. The unit therefore covers the principles and practices of stakeholder analysis, identification of business needs, problems and opportunities, analysis, negotiation and specification of requirements for any solution that may involve technology inspired change. The unit will address critical issues in acquiring, modelling, validating and communicating requirements for large business systems. Seminar and online exercises will allow students to develop practical hands-on skills in effective acquisition of information from client groups by brainstorming, interviewing, conducting seminars and meetings.
