Examination arrangement: Portfolio
Grade: Letter grades
This course focuses on the role of information systems in an organizational context, both used internally in organizations and to support the organization's involvement in collaboration e.g. through digital ecosystems. It will address the reasons why information systems are designed as they are by exploring the needs of organisations and users, the processes and the roles that the systems support in an organizational and work context. Emphasis will be placed on how IT can support innovation and new services design and bring value to an organization. The course will address methods for business modelling, service design and enterprise modelling that are complementary to systems modelling. Methods related to modelling and quality assurance of models will be presented. Enterprise Architecture methods will also be presented.
Knowledge: The candidate shall establish theoretical insights into business and enterprise modelling, service innovation and the methods for analysing organisational situations and modelling them. Skills: The candidate shall establish practical skills in creating good business and enterprise models that enhances the understanding of the design of IT systems and the perspectives of software engineering models. Competence: The candidate shall be able to put the course topics into a broader technological, business and social context related to the impact of information systems in society.
Learning methods and activities
The students will work on a term paper assignment during the whole semester. This will include practical modelling activities, group discussions, presentations and peer reviews. This work will be done during the weekly tutorials. The main activities will include weekly lectures, tutorials, modelling, presentations and term paper. The lectures and tutorials are aimed at interactions and discussions among the class participants, rather than a one-way lecture delivery. Weekly tutorials will support the practical modelling and term paper assignment. The course may be taught in English if taken by students who do not speak Norwegian.
- Submission of a model
Further on evaluation
The final grade is based on the models, the final report (Term Paper) and some of the learning activities during the semester. The final report includes modelling assignments, descriptions of how the practical modelling parts relate to the theory, presentations and reflections. The assignment is split into sub-parts with set activities and times during the semester and the students are expected to follow the required timeline. The activities will include a presentation of the case to model and a model with minimum requirements, group presentations, peer feedback and reflections, and peer review of final reports.
The students will be required to participate in a mandatory activity at the beginning of the course, to be able to complete the course. Mandatory activity is a submission of a model that meets the minimum requirements, which is a part of the first activity, is the criteria for continuing this course and receiving a final grade.
Failure to participate in the activities can have consequences on the final grade. If a student fails to submit their final report, they will receive a F/Fail and will be required to retake the course in its entirety.
