Note: Due to the SARS-CoV-19 Virus, this course is held in an interactive, virtual format using the newly acquired Zoom licenses for the whole  university. In case of system collapse, other software is ready in reserve.
Students are still required to engage in discussions, questions and work in (virtual) groups, as well as present answers and solutions in front of the class. The platform form communication is StudOn. All relevant information will be posted there. For the first session all students receive an e-mail with further instruction some days before the course.

In this course, students will focus on developing and evaluating solutions for organizational challenges in the context of digital transformation. In doing so, they work together with organizations from various industries and gain in-depth experience in solving organizational problems using a systematic design science research process. Moreover, they will get familiar with empirical research methods and improve their presentation as well as writing skills.

The case partner for this year is a well known sports ware manufacturer from the region.

The course is offered annually each winter term for master students in IIS, Management, and Marketing. The number of participants is limited to a maximum of 25 students (this is not due to the corona situation; Due to the interactive course format we can’t provide more seats in the course). Enroll via StudOn until 20.04.2020:
