Technology-Enabled Business Transformation

Credits: 3


Business Transformation has been defined as the alignment of process, people and technology such that it can both support and innovate business strategies. Given that technologies evolve and develop at a rather rapid pace, it is desirable for managers to develop skills that allow them to understand what technologies can do (both established and new) and how they might be leveraged to create real value. Using lecture and current case studies, this course will examine topics to help students develop those skills. These topics include: (1) Transformation Strategies, (2) The relationship between Information Technology and Business Transformation, (3) When to build and when to buy, (4) Business Analysis, (5) Process Modeling, (6 )Enterprise Systems, (7) Software Development Methodologies. Prerequisite: None.
