The setting for part One of this course is a High Level Business Design Workshop attended by corporate executives and facilitated by a professional consultant. Through this "Strategic Planning" workshop setting, participants get involved to first answer questions and then work collectively to build the corporate mission statement and identify industry forces that affect the business enterprise resulting ultimately in the formation of business strategies. This is an overview course describing how this work is done at the highest levels of a corporation.
Part Two of the class uses the above information gathered and defined and uses it to issue questionnaires and complete a Current Systems Assessment of the corporation.
Putting the two above sections together allows a corporation to identify "business and information systems gaps" that can then being to be addressed through strategic planning and project planning exercises, concluding with formal "Statements of Work" packages and "Business Cases" for initiatives; both of which are described in overview in this course.
