Syllabus

In this course organizational effects of information technology (IT) use are examined at different levels of analysis, particularly the macro, sector, and the organizational network level as well as the level of the single organization and the organization of work processes.

Different effects will be examined depending on the level of analysis, e.g. productivity at the macro level or the degree of job specialization at the level of work organization.

The tutorial will focus on selected aspects in the fields of organizational theory and business information systems to address possible knowledge gaps among the students.

Objectives

The participants will learn how to

(1) distinguish between the basic forms of the organization of economic activities (divisional and functional organization, supply chains, clusters);
(2) recognize and describe the basic forms of IT use in commercial organizations (ERP systems, electronic data interchange, electronic markets);
(3) critically evaluate the state of the art in scientific research on the effect of IT on the organization of economic activities.
