The lecture concentrates on interorganisational systems and business networks, aiming to explore the contingencies and strategies that lie behind the evolution of IOS, networking and new e-commerce business cases.
Drawing on case examples as well as theoretical concepts, the configuration and management of networks as well as the design and implications of IOS will be discussed from various perspectives, such as strategic management, organization theory, information management and IS development.
Specifically, the course will explore examples of interorganisational information systems (IOIS) in the healthcare sector. Students will work in groups on mini research projects focusing on various aspects of IOIS in healthcare.
The course consists of two parts. The lecture focuses on the following topics:
Introduction: Understanding the increasing role of networks, critical reflection of the transformation of industrial organisation
Networks & IOS: Strategic rationale for networking and the role of technology
Standards: The role and diffusion of standards for IOS
Theory: Explaining the proliferation of networks from different theoretical perspectives
Network: The specifics of managing a network environment
Electronic Business: Technology driven business innovation
As part of the exercises students will be introduced to business research techniques. Subsequently they will conduct a mini research project on their own. Their research design and their findings will be discussed in class.
