Learning and Teaching Methods
The subject is delivered in 3-hour classes, with each class containing two lectures on theoretical concepts, and a class discussion or student presentations on a research paper related to the current lecture topic. Outside class, students will study theory and complete exercises designed to increase understanding of what enterprise systems are, and the way that they can contribute value to organizations.
Indicative Key Learning Resources
The key subject “handout”, including details of assignment and questions for discussion, will be available online from LMS. Key articles will be available online via the university library. Exercises for hands-on use of SAP ERP will be available online. Students will be provided with an account on an SAP ERP system sourced from the SAP-supported University Competency Centre at QUT.

This subject is relevant to careers as business analysts, IT managers, and consultants. Since almost all large organizations today have implemented enterprise systems, and such systems are constantly being upgraded, there is a large on-going demand for people with knowledge of this topic from both consulting and user organizations. Students will work on real-world cases of organisations attempting to maximize benefits from their use of enterprise systems. There will be one or two lectures from invited practitioners from industry.
