Translating Organizational Strategies into Enterprise Information Strategies
This course takes a broad and deep look at the ongoing co-evolution of an enterprise's strategic goals, objectives and plans, and the development, use and adaptation of the strategic information systems that should be facilitating the accomplishment of those goals and objectives. Much of the classical literature on strategic systems planning and development has made assumptions about goals, objectives, and the enterprise's context as being reasonably well-defined and static -- assumptions which common experience seems to reject as mistaken. Instead, this course looks at how various evolutionary and adaptive strategies can be used not only to constantly improve the strategic decision making processes themselves, but also to continuously improve the information systems business processes that serve the enterprise and its decision makers. The course also looks at how industry-leading standards and knowledge banks, such as the Control Objectives for Information and related Technologies (COBIT 5) and the Information Technology Infrastructure Library, can offer experience-based insight and guidance on these issues. Prequisites: MMIS 501 and MMIS 502 or permission of the Program Chair.

Located on the Daytona Beach Campus, the Jack R. Hunt Library is the primary library for all students of the Worldwide Campus. The Chief Academic Officer strongly recommends that every faculty member, where appropriate, require all students in his or her classes to access the Hunt Library or a comparable college-level local library for research. The results of this research can be used for class projects such as research papers, group discussion, or individual presentations. Students should feel comfortable with using the resources of the library.
