Objectifs du cours

At the end of the course, the student should be able to :
Managers have to take important strategic decisions on the basis of observations. After this class, students should be able to observe the reality correctly, to analyse their observations and to make valid decisions on the basis of their analysis.
Students should also know a number of important Information System theories that apply to companies, such as the Unified Theory of Acceptance and Use of Technology (UTAUT) and Protection Motivation Theory (PMT).

Students should have greater awareness about ESRS topics. Specifically, students will be required to make observations in companies, related to the ESRS domain.

Contenu du cours

First, students will get a list of theories that are important to managers and each student will have to pick one theory that seems interesting to him/her. Next, the student will have to present that theory to the fellow students and we discuss what new applications are thinkable of the theory.
Next all students together choose a topic that will be investigated in more detail in this class. A research question will be put forward and students will have to develop an interview protocol to interview people in companies. Next, students do the interviews, transcribe the interviews and analyze the interviews (using NVivo software), in order to come up with a good answer to the research question.
During this class, students will also get presentations of the IT landscape in specific companies. For instance, the CIO of IESEG will present the IT department and the IT systems that are used at IESEG.
Students will also play the TopConsulting Game. They will have to analyse the business of the company and come up with a basic IT system to suppor the operations of TopConsulting company.
