by Ronny completed this course, spending 3 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be easy.
It is always a pleasure to follow a course on the FutureLearn platform, the only MOOC platform that takes social interaction seriously. No other platform is as pleasant to work with as FutureLearn.

Participate actively, comment on every section and use the like button frequently. You will learn at least as much from your peers as from the course instructors.

Deakin does an excellent job of introducing the concepts 'competitive advantage' and 'IT Portfolio management'. By using an example everyone is familiar with, a restaurant, they make you think and reflect on how automation and information can increase business benefits, and result in continuous improvements and a competitive advantage.

It is only a short course, 2 weeks of 3 hours, not sufficient to become an expert, but anyway, a good introduction that you will for sure enjoy.
