Course content and structure

The course aims to provide students with analytical tools
and competencies that will allow them to systematically
examine the interrelated problems of transformation of
work practices, organizational change, and information
systems design under conditions of uncertainty. Incomplete
knowledge of alternatives and consequences is assumed to
be a prevailing condition.

Lectures develop the core analytical themes of organization, innovation, and systems design. Further, students will be doing case study exercises in actual organizations as a way to develop an understanding

of the analytical issues involved. Each group prepares and makes a presentation of the findings from the ocase. At the end of the course students will develop a Quarter Paper from the case. Students are encouraged to use PowerPoint or overheads to support their presentation. In addition all groups are expected to be well prepared and to be active in facilitating discussion.
