An IT Strategy Course: Why and How
Woods, David M.; Howard, Elizabeth V.
Information Systems Education Journal, v13 n4 p4-11 Jul 2015
With continuing changes in all aspects of the technology field, especially the emergence of cloud and "as a service" offerings, developing skills for strategic thinking about technology is of increasing importance to our students. However, the presence of formal IS/IT strategy courses in programs of study trails that of more traditional courses. In addition, there is limited discussion on the teaching of strategy in the academic literature. This work offers reasons for the continued importance of teaching strategy and provides examples of how strategy is covered in a course on Global and Strategic Issues in IT.
