Control of information within an organization is one of the most fundamental responsibilities of managers. Modern businesses and organisations must be capable of creating and implementing a control structure which will suit the operations of the business. Information technology (IT) can be used to create information systems which result in effective and efficient control in a business.
In this course the learner is introduced to the issues that control presents in the organization and also outlines the impact globalization has on control within the organization. Information systems can greatly aid communications in an organization but they may also pose a major control problem for management in terms of development, implementation and security. The learner will also see how different types of organizations may require different levels of control. Improved information systems have allowed many businesses to expand their operations to the global market, in turn creating more control issues, for example, businesses with extensive outsourcing face problems of control and communications.
This course will be of great interest to professionals in the areas of business management, IT and information systems who would like to learn more about implementing effective control measures within organisations and the impact globalization can have on control within a business.
