MASTER SEMINAR WINTER TERM 2014-15
"STRATEGIC MANAGEMENT OF IT/IS"
Update 26.06.2014: Minor changes to the seminar description and inclusion of additional topics
During the past few years, IT departments’ role has changed significantly in many organizations. While these departments used to have a primarily internal delivery function within their companies, they now increasingly serve as service centers targeted at reaching a market price level and seeking to contribute to company success. This development has lead to new structures and requirements for strategic management of IT and IS. Today, understanding the business needs of the company and aligning the IT department’s efforts accordingly are central challenges for IT managers.
The objective of this seminar is the investigation and discussion of contemporary issues in the field of strategic IT/IS management. The participants are required to write a seminar paper about one particular topic and present their final results to the class.
