BIS Innovation, Transformation & Change (INFS6020)


The unit serves as a capstone for the extended (6 unit) MCom (BIS) major and is structured around a semester long business innovation project. This project will consolidate learning from prior Business Information Systems units of study, integrate learning from other units of study in the degree, and extend knowledge, skills and capabilities to contribute to business innovation, transformation and change. The project will allow you to demonstrate your ability to critically synthesise and apply BIS tools, methods, models and frameworks with cross-disciplinary business analysis, communication and research skills. The overarching capability is to prepare a full business case for innovation to address a business problem or to seize a business opportunity. Knowledge and skills will include critical analysis of business problems in an organisation, specification of requirements, identification of options and the creative design of practical, technology-enabled business innovations to implement selected options. The business case will include planning for project implementation, management of change, risk management and evaluation of project outcomes.
