Modules

This module is intended to introduce you to some of the key concepts around managing information and associated technologies as a core business activity, and aligning this with organisational strategy. We will contextualise the processes of information systems and information management within the organisational ecosystem as well as placing issues of information management in the broader context of international development, the sustainability agenda and the issues with regard to ethical use of information. You can use this module either with Challenges in Information Management, or as an effective stand-alone introduction to the issues of information systems and information management without a commitment to the complementary extension module. Challenges in Information Management - the complementary module - is designed to extend the themes developed in this module by looking at key areas of practice. No prior academic knowledge of the subject is assumed.
