Info-Veranstaltung: Die ersten 100 Tage im Job: So gelingt der Berufseinstieg

Am kommenden Montag findet im Vom-Stein-Haus die Veranstaltung „Die ersten 100 Tage im Job: So gelingt der Berufseinstieg“ von ZEIT CAMPUS und Die Techniker (TK) – Ausbildung und Karriere in Kooperation mit der WWU statt.

 Bei der Podiumsdiskussion haben Studierende aller Fachbereiche die Möglichkeit mehr über den erfolgreichen Start in das Berufsleben zu erfahren und sich beim anschließenden Get-together und einem der zwei angebotenen Workshops Wo gehöre ich hin? Wie man den Job finde, der zu einem passt“ oder „Zeig dich! Wie du dich und deine Ideen im Job einbringst“ noch weiter mit dem Thema auseinanderzusetzen.

 Unter dem folgenden Link gibt es weitere Informationen zur Veranstaltung:

Survey of Electives (project seminars and conventional seminars), Winter Term 2018/19

To plan elective courses in Winter Term 2018/19, a preliminary survey is conducted.

If you are willing to  participate to a seminar or project seminar, please join this survey in the Learnweb:

https://www.uni-muenster.de/LearnWeb/learnweb2/mod/feedback/view.php?id=866750

 Of course, your choice is nonbinding, but, nevertheless, we ask for serious answers, as this avoids us from planning both too few and too many courses (a disadvantage for students and lecturers as well)

The survey will be closed on Thursday, 2018/06/7.

Note that the application phase for seminars/project seminars will take place in the beginning of July 2018 and, of course, will be announced separately.

Umfrage zur vorläufigen Feststellung des Bedarfs an Projektseminar- und Vertiefungsmodulplätzen im Wintersemester 2018/19

Liebe WI-Studierende im 3. Studienjahr,

Um das Bachelor-Lehrangebot an Vertiefungsmodulen und Projektseminaren im Wintersemester 2018/19 planen zu können und auch das grundsätzliche Interesse am Vertiefungsmodul BWL auszuloten, wollen wir in diesem Semester wieder auf eine (unverbindliche) Umfrage zurückgreifen.

Sie finden die Umfrage unter dem Link

https://www.uni-muenster.de/LearnWeb/learnweb2/mod/feedback/view.php?id=866749

Bitte nehmen Sie sich 5 Minuten Zeit, die wenigen Fragen zu beantworten. Die Umfrage ist ab sofort geöffnet  bis  Donnerstag  07. Juni 2018.

Auch wenn Sie im kommenden Semester kein VM/PS absolvieren möchten, nehmen Sie bitte an der Umfrage teil und teilen dies entsprechend mit.  Es sei aber auch noch einmal hervorgehoben, dass durch die Teilnahme/Nichtteilnahme  an dieser Umfrage und die gegebenen Antworten keine direkte Verpflichtung entsteht. Mit einer gewissenhaften Einschätzung Ihres Bedarfs helfen Sie uns aber zu vermeiden, dass im kommenden Semester zu viele oder zu wenige VM/PS angeboten werden - beides wäre für Studierende wie Lehrende nachteilig.

Abschließend noch der folgende Hinweis: Die eigentliche Bewerbung für Plätze in Vertiefungsmodulen und Projektseminaren des 3. Studienjahres findet Anfang Juli 2018 statt und wird separat angekündigt.

Guest Lecture by Prof. Robert Winter, University of St. Gallen, April 24th

As part of the Bachelor course "project management" we will have a guest lecture by Prof. Robert Winter, University of St. Gallen. The guest lecture is open also to interested Master students:

***

Title:

Large IT Projects - Three Failure Patterns and Suggestions for Improving Project Governance


Venue: 24.04.2018, 14:15-15:45 in lecture hall Leo 1

 

Abstract:

For decades much effort has been made to improve project management techniques and capabilities. Although project management has matured significantly, the failure rate of large projects remains high – and this applies also to large IT projects. Our postmortem analysis of 15 large, complex IT projects of the Swiss federal administration with an encountered cumulative loss of approximately one billion Swiss Francs shows that, while project management deficits account for some challenges, the causes for project failure primarily lie in inadequate governance capabilities of project steering committees and project sponsors. Based on insights gained from the initial failure analysis, the Swiss federal government decided to assess all its ongoing large IT projects based on our co-designed analysis framework. In the meantime also several private companies have assessed IT projects applying our framework. A (small) number of large IT projects has been stopped as a consequence. For other projects, valuable discussions or measures have been initiated. The data gained by these over 100 assessments will allow to identify patterns that promise to be a reference for what information to ask for, when to intervene and how to intervene.

 

Short bio:

Robert Winter is full Professor of Business & Information Systems Engineering at the University of St. Gallen (HSG) and Director of HSG's Institute of Information Management. He was founding Academic Director of HSG's Executive Master of Business Engineering programme and Academic Director of HSG's Ph.D. in Management programme. He received Master degrees in business administration and business education as well as a doctorate in social sciences from Goethe University, Frankfurt, Germany. After eleven years as a researcher and deputy chair in information systems in Germany, he joined HSG in 1996. Being a current member of the editorial board of "MIS Quarterly Executive" and other IS journals, he also served as vice Editor-in-chief of "Business & Information Systems Engineering" and Senior Associate Editor of "European Journal of Information Systems". His research interests include design science research methodology, enterprise architecture management and the governance of large IT projects/programmes.
