|Contents:||In this course we will focus on the so-called boundary spanners of the firm: the external organization. Cooperation between organizations has become a strategic activity and takes many forms. Firms intensify their outsourcing activities, integrate supply chains, launch customer relationship management, form strategic alliances and partnerships, etcetera. Clearly, organization strive for win-win relationships with their environment, but also face larger interdependencies and coordination problems. This brings about new challenges from both a managerial as a technological perspective. In this course you will deal with these issues from both a theoretical and empirical perspective.|
|Literature:||There is no book, no syllabus. Relevant materials such as papers, cases and book reviews will be presented at the lectures and the workshops (see below). These materials will also become available via the website. Mind that your lecture notes are also considered as exam material!|
|Course form:||This course will extend your knowledge of the extended enterprise by three parallel streams.|
First, Johan Versendaal, Ronald Batenburg and geuest speakers will give a lecture every week on several general topics concerning the extended enterprise, e-business, relationship management, networks, CRM, e-procurement, outsourcing and so on. Lectures are on Wednesdays.
Second, you will contribute to a collective research project on Product Lifecycle Management (PLM). In this project you and your partner need to find a product or R&D manager that is willing participate in a electronic meeting about PLM. You will organize this meeting yourself, by grouping respondents and questionnaires. After this you will analyze the meeting results, and write a scientific paper. These activities will take place on Fridays.
Third, we have invited a number of guest lecturers that will give a workshop during the Fridays, or parts of it. These workshop are related to either PLM or another relevant theme of the extended enterprise.
|Exam form:||An individual written examination in week 46 contributes 50% to your mark of the course. Lecture and workshop materials including notes are subject of this exam. Beware that attendance to all of the workshops (except one) is obliged in order to attend this final examination. Your PLM paper and presentation contribute to the other 50% of your final mark. In case the written exam mark is insufficient, you need to apply for a second examination opportunity. In case the PLM paper mark is insufficient you need to rework it.|
