This course focuses on the strategic use of information technology. When all companies essentially have access to the same information technology resources (telecommunications, hardware and software), the difference in competitive and economic benefits that organizations gain from IT rests on moving quickly with IT deployment and using IT better and smarter than competitors do. Understanding how IT can be used to achieve competitive advantage, and to improve making decisions, business processes, operations, and organizational design, is an important aspect of any modern manager's job.
