Aims and objectives

This unit is an immersive, small group research and development project that allows students’ expertise to be applied to the 'real world' requirements of an organisation. Students learn about research principles and apply research and design methodologies in the context of providing an innovative, client-facing digital business solution. Working with an academic advisor and an industry sponsor, students will define a business technology requirement for an organisation, and undertake a research and development activity that may range from strategic advice for the adoption and use of information technologies, to designing solutions for their application. Students present their work to the executive panel.

Students who successfully complete this unit will be able to:
1. Apply critical analysis, design thinking and advanced knowledge of information technologies to meet digital business management requirements with practical applications in diverse contexts.
2. Draw on a multi-disciplinary knowledge, skills, and practice from various sources, including the student's independent professional experience to advance IT solutions for digital business.
3. Communicate proficiently in professional practice to a variety of audiences, function as an effective member or leader of a diverse team.
4. Reflect on and take responsibility for learning and self-management processes and review and reflect on their own performance as a means of managing continuing professional development and lifelong learning.
5. Demonstrate an understanding of the fundamental principles of research, including the design and application of research methods in the context of information systems management innovation, research and development.
