Abstract

Building upon the more general IS contents at the bachelor level, the goal of the lectures is to prepare the students for typical IT-related management positions in business. The latter include 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 motivated 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, as well as the overall IT-business alignment via the IT strategy.

To facilitate the students' learning, the course will cover IT strategy, IT governance, project portfolio management, enterprise architecture management, demand management, vendor management, and strategic IT performance measurement, including benchmarking.

The course will host at least one guest lecturer from the field of IT management.
