Derived from well proven teaching material this book will provide essential reading for students taking the core subject of Information Management. The new Oxford MBA has only recently agreed Information Management as a core subject but it is already an integral part of the MBA course in other business schools. The Oxford Institute of Information Management has for many years provided an IM input for the MBA and executive courses at Templeton College. The various teaching modules, sixteen in all, constitute a significant part of the MBA course, all of which have been taught and refined over the last few years. Conveniently they form the chapters for the book.
