I am happy to welcome you to the ITACS program and to MIS 5202 ! I hope you are as excited to get started as I am. I will begin on Wednesday night, August 30th when we will go through the structure of the course, what I am expecting from you, and talk about the Stars Ambulance case.
In the following weeks, we will study one topic per week. I will publish Reading and Case Questions each week to kick the topic off and then a wrap up note at the end of the week. You must answer all the reading questions each week. The goal is to have a thorough discussion of each topic at the beginning of each class. Case questions are there to guide your analysis of each case.
We will in-person class every week. In the event we don’t have in-person class, I will use WebEx to host the class for the specified week. Please use a computer to join in as Webex is not friendly to IOS devices.
For this week , all you need to do is read the Stars Ambulance case and think about these three case questions
- Identify three or four of the most critical challenges facing the new CIO?
- What is the overall issue facing the new CIO?
- How would you proceed as the new CIO?
I look forward to seeing you all on Wednesday night.
