Description: Companies that successfully select, adopt, and exploit technology gain a competitive advantage. Business leaders, executives, strategists, innovators and line managers each play a key role. Their decisions and actions determine a business’s ability to leverage technology successfully. In the classroom, our focus will be on current technology related issues faced by businesses, including security, privacy and emerging technologies such as AI and IoT. We will examine these topics through recent research and use case studies to develop strategies students can use in their environment. The course is focused on managing business impact, business risk, and externalities related to technology. It is not industry specific and no prior technical knowledge is required.
