Course Description:

This course will prepare students to create or participate in creating a strategic plan for an organization’s Information systems/Technology function and understand the requirements for

alignment with corporate goals.  Strategy is about connecting a vision for the future with goals and actions that enable success. Strategy also provides the foundation for establishing

priorities.  The course will synthesize traditional planning concepts with contemporary topics transforming organizational landscapes.  Globalization, “cloud” architectures, and co-created

value networks driven by technological innovations have emerged as new imperatives for technology strategists. These current issues will be deeply explored throughout the course.  In

addition, the student must look beyond the status quo and project into an uncertain future.  Students will complete a framework of an information systems /technology plan.
