IT Strategy, spring 2018

Although information technology (IT) has long since become an integral part of the activities of modern organisations it is only in the past 20 years that the strategic significance of IT has been illustrated in literature. The development of Internet based technology from the mid 1990s until today has increased the strategic importance of information technology, which is reflected in the IT budgets of organisations in both the public and private sectors. The starting point for the course is that today's IT intensive age demands new strategic approaches. Against this background the course covers, firstly, the concepts and models which can be used to identify and understand the strategic significance of information technology and, secondly, detailed studies of innovation strategies and global IT strategies.


The schedule for the course can be found here. Please note that this is a preliminary schedule and that dates for activities may be changed, and that other activities may be added to the schedule! 

Additional information and course materials will be availible on the course's cambro site, which will be opened when the course starts.
