Managing with Technology (SMBA6109)


Technology is an integral part of every business organisation. Technology is both the subject of managerial activity as well as a necessary tool for managers in performing their work. Considering that technology is seen as a solution to as well as a source of various business problems, there is a need to evaluate the main assumptions that underlie how technology is understood and employed by managers. With a strong emphasis on modern information and communication technologies (ICT), this unit critically examines current managerial thought about technology from multiple perspectives. This unit equips students with a balanced understanding of the nature and role of technology in organisations, and enables them to manage with technology more effectively. Learning involves hands-on in-class activities, case study analysis, and classroom discussions.
