The lectures cover technology processes from requirements analysis to implementation and each process is defined, explained, and illustrated through easy-to-understand real company examples. The lectures also cover important technology principles such as technology leverage and technology adoption rates. As opposed to the step-by-step process explanations, the principles reveal insights into how to think about technology by defining, explaining, and illustrating how the principles work and how they impact a business. The course includes a business case discussion of a real company struggling with real technology issues.
