Aims and objectives

This unit investigates current issues in the changing digital landscape, from the impact of new and emerging technologies on industry sectors and the workplace, to the challenges business leaders face in managing the digital enterprise securely. Using a thematic approach to contemporary issues in digital business management this unit will challenge the traditional assumptions of working with technology in business and examine the role of managers leading areas of digital change. In this unit you will consider the problems that new and emerging technologies present, the solutions they provide and the approaches that can be taken to managing digital.
Students who successfully complete this unit will be able to:
1. Demonstrate a critical understanding of the key issues, challenges and priorities for business managers in working with new and emerging technologies in different business contexts.
2. Critically analyse the different business models, frameworks and approaches business leaders are bringing to the application of new and emerging technologies in different markets, industries and sectors, including new and disrupting business models.
3. Develop a critical appreciation of the role of information asset management in meeting the strategic goals of contemporary organisations.
4. Critically evaluate the role of executive management and leadership in digital business management.
5. Research and apply knowledge of emerging trends in technology, individually or as a group, to new business ideas and communicate about these effectively to a diverse range of stakeholders.
