The course focusses on organizational transformation driven through information technology (IT) and consists of two parts.
The first part takes a systemic perspective in the discussion of the impact of IT on innovation in different industrial sectors. We intro-duce different theoretical perspectives to look into the organizational changes provoked by and explore how these perspectives can help to understand the consequences for modern economies.
The second part gives students a thorough understanding of actual cases of digitalization achieved through IT and IT-enabled services. We use case studies on large organizations involved in digitalization to explore: the birth and growth of IT clusters, the advantages and disadvantages of outsourcing & offshoring, and the inherent risks and opportunities moving up the value chain.
During the course, the students will gain deeper insight into the lat-est scientific developments and trends in the field, as well as an overview of global IT delivery models used in the industry. It will give students orientation for future career choices in academia or industry.
