This course, Managing the software enterprise: the organisational and business context, relates software to the organisation that it supports, drawing on basic ideas from organisational theory and management.

We see how organisational practices become embodied in IT systems, practices that had previously been part of peoples tacit expertise become externalised and codified in procedures and software. The software and its relationship to the organisation are constantly changing as part of a process of organisational learning.
