New systems design approaches and techniques are providing extraordinary strategic opportunities to organizations that recognize and implement them. This course shows students state-of-the-art systems design from a managerial perspective rather than a strictly technical approach. Managers who wish to get the most out of new and existing information systems and technical people who wish to see where systems may be going have the opportunity to do so in this class. Beyond current approaches, students are also presented with basic information on new technologies including artificial intelligence and expert systems, which many believe will play a critical role in future systems.
