Human beings engage in information environments of ever-increasing complexity both within organisations and socially. In these environments, human beings interact with information in various ways. This unit introduces principles of cognitive science relevant to understanding how human beings process information and make decisions.
In addition, the unit presents relevant frameworks to understand what information really is. Understanding both of these aspects is necessary for modern organisations to be able to exploit their data for effective decision-making.
Information systems and enterprises are increasingly interwoven. This isn’t surprising when it is information systems that play a key role in enabling enterprises to achieve their strategic objectives.
This is a transitionary unit that highlights the important role of managers who, with a nuanced understanding of information systems, can direct the use of appropriate systems in order to achieve strategic objectives or to improve existing capabilities.
