Teaching

Currently I am teaching and coordinating three subjects at Utrecht University.

Strategic Management of Organizations and ICT

Level 3 bachelor subject in which we discuss strategic issues of managing organizations and ICT as well as the strategic planning cycle. For the subject we use the book by Ward & Peppard: Strategic Planning for Information Systems (3rd edition). In the first weeks we focus on theory and then we play a business game for five weeks in which students are the management team of the beer brewery and need to make strategic as well as operational decisions. Although the subject is quite demanding in time students are very enthusiastic about the course and so are we! To get an impression of the course please have a look at the website of the subject, most information is found on the website when the subject is taught (February-Arpil).

Knowledge Management

Master level subject in which we discuss how organizations can use their knowledge assets to acquire a competitive advantage over their competitors. In the course we discuss several topics such as knowledge networks, knowledge discovery, knowledge management systems and intellectual capital. In the past we have used several books for the course but none was found satisfying. Today we use articles as the literature for the subject supported by lecture slides. During the subject the students will perform a small research project that results in a paper. These papers are peer reviewed by the students and in the end they will do a poster presentation. Another recurring element in the subject is a lecture in the virtual world of Second Life. To get an impression of the course please have a look at the website of the subject, most information is found on the website when the subject is taught (September-November).

ICT Advisory

Master level subject in which the students learn about the ICT Advisory industry and business. For an impression of the course please check the website.

In the past I have also taught other subjects including Information Systems, Organizational Theory and Research Methods.

At the VU University in Amsterdam I am teaching a master level subject on Knowledge Management & Networks together with Prof. Marleen Huysman.
