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 using some theoretical lens and to make valid decisions on the basis of their analysis. Therefore, students have to work rigorously.

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 be able to perform a literature review with respect to some theory in order to fully understand and explain the theory. Students should be able to perform high-quality interviews with practitionars.

Contenu du cours

First, students get a list of theories that are important to managers and in small groups students will have to pick one theory that seems interesting to them and look for a case where they could apply the theory.

Next, the students will have to study the theory in-depth. They then develop an interview protocol to interview people in companies using this theoretical lens in a specific setting. Next, students do the interviews, transcribe the interviews and analyze the interviews. On the basis of those interviews and their literature study, students have to write a case study and a teaching note (explaining the theory and how the case links to the theory). The students also have to run the case in class with their fellow students and give feedback on each other's case.

Students will also get presentations of the IT landscape in specific companies. For instance, in previous years the CIO of IESEG presented the IT department and the IT systems that are used at IESEG.
