This online Professional Reading and Writing in Information Systems Strategy unit from Open Universities Australia and Swinburne University extends students’ existing knowledge of IS Systems in an organisational context, and demonstrates how it can be used for strategic competitive advantage.
Through a combination of coursework, project research, discussion and written reports, students learn the principles involved in literature analysis, research approaches, and proposal development. This understanding of current issues in information systems strategy can be applied to a range of disciplines as well as providing a strong philosophical and academic foundation for later vocational study.
In this unit, students are also encouraged to research a specific IS strategy area and develop a research report of a standard to be included in the Swinburne Lilydale working paper series or conference.
