Information systems are an integral part of any modern organisation and, increasingly, computer systems are used to support every aspect of an organisation's functions and activities. Whilst innovative use of technologies can provide significant benefits, information systems will only deliver value where they are deployed to meet the goals of the organisation. The emphasis of the module is on methods for analysing, specifying and designing information systems within a framework which takes a holistic approach to the introduction of change and in which user requirements are considered fundamental.
