Introducing IT Strategy in an Introductory Course
Woods, David M.
Information Systems Education Journal, v14 n5 p62-70 Sep 2016
Professionals working in technology fields face continuing challenges to be involved in the decision-making process about how technology is used by organizations rather than just implementing these decisions. Developing skills for thinking and acting strategically are key skills for our students. This has been recognized by the addition of an IS strategy course in the latest revision of the recommended curriculum, but programs have been slow to add this course. This paper investigates introducing learning activities related to IS/IT strategy in an introductory IT course. Including strategy activities throughout the curriculum could provide an alternative or complement to a dedicated strategy course.
