Prüfungs­modalitäten

Zum Modul erfolgt eine modulbezogene zusammengesetzte Prüfung in der Gestalt einer Klausur (in der Regel: 60-90 Minuten, 50% der Note) und Präsentation zu der oder den Fallstudien (in der Regel: 20-40 Minuten, 50% der Note).

Prüfungsvorleistung: Mündliche oder schriftliche Testate von denen mindestens 75% bestanden werden müssen sind als Prüfungsvorleistung Zulassungsvoraussetzung zur Modulprüfung. Bestandene Testate haben nur Gültigkeit für die Prüfungen, die zu der Veranstaltung im jeweiligen Semester gehören. Die genauen Formalia werden in der ersten Sitzung bekannt gegeben.

This module is assessed based on two grading instruments: first, a series of four intermediate tests ("Testate") during the semester, in which students must pass at least 75% to be allowed to take the final examination; and second, the final written examination (usually 60-90 minutes) which results in the course grade.

This module concludes with a module-specific examination that consists of a written exam (usually 60 to 90 minutes, 50%), as well as an presentation (usually 20 to 40 minutes, 50%) on the case study or studies. These contents are subject to verbal or written tests. Only participants who pass at least 75% of these intermediate tests are eligible to take the final written examination during that semester. The specific formalities will be announced in the first session.

Abstract

The lectures build on the more general IS content from the bachelor’s level. Their goal is to prepare the students for typical IT-related management positions in business, including line positions in industries with high IT penetration (e.g., Internet businesses, banking, insurance, and telecoms), management functions within corporate IT departments, or positions as technology-oriented management consultants. Moreover, the module is designed to enable the students to leverage IT/IS in order to optimize business processes and facilitate innovative business models. Consequently, the students are prepared for management challenges at the interface between business and IT (e.g., as process managers or those responsible for IT in business departments).

At the beginning of the course, the independent strategic management of IT in corporations will be explained and its structure provided. During the lectures, a reference framework will indicate the various decision domains that IT strategy needs to incorporate and align. While undergraduate studies focus strongly on the internal structure of IT, the ‘Strategic Planning of IS’ will extend this perspective by investigating the value chain interfaces of IT. These include the sourcing aspect, the delivery of services, and the overall IT-business alignment via the IT strategy.

To facilitate the students' learning, the course will cover IT strategy, IT business alignment, IT governance and standardization, demand management, enterprise architecture management, project portfolio management, vendor management, and benefits management.
