My Description: This course gives a general introduction to systems analysis for information systems. It covers the various stages of systems analysis (planning, analysis, design and implementation) and outlines the appropriate methods for each stage. It focuses particularly on the relationship of this process to broader organizational goals. Students will work in groups to complete the planning and analysis stages for a significant project and work on aspects of the design and implementation phases.

Prerequisites: INFOST 240

Course website: All schedule and course policy information is posted here, as I find D2L's content page a confusing way to present materials and deadlines. D2L will be used for group assignments so that you can benefit from its collaboration features.
