Course Description
Management Information Systems (MIS) knowledge is essential for creating competitive
organizations, managing global corporations, adding business value, and providing useful products
and services to customers. This course teaches you what information systems are and how to manage
them. You will learn the relationship between information systems, the organization, its processes, and
its people; how information systems enable businesses to gain competitive advantage; and how to
anticipate the impact of emerging technologies on business processes.
The course also covers the applications of information systems in an organization and its decisionmaking process. Ethical and legal aspects of systems, as well as their security, privacy, and quality will
also be addressed, along with relevant aspects of the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals.
Although fundamental information technology (IT) will be highlighted, this is not a computer science
course. Rather, the emphasis is on the applications of information systems in management, from the
perspective of a Chief Information Officer (CIO) or other MIS senior management team member.
Lectures, readings, class discussions, case studies, and videos will provide you with the MIS concepts
you need as a management student.

Methods Used to Evaluate Student Performance
Group Assignments (Best 5 (of 6) * 5 marks = 25%)
Group assignments help you apply the concepts covered in class in a practical case study.
Groups of up to 5 students will be randomly set by Brightspace.
If you are unable to connect with your group, email me (Murray.Kronick@telfer.uottawa.ca) and
I will assist you with the group member assignments.
Failing to join a group by the first assignment will result in a 2% penalty.
Group assignments consist of case studies and essay questions to be done at home by group
members using your choice of tools for video meetings and document collaboration.
Each group will submit one (only one) report on Brightspace. See COURSE SCHEDULE for the
submission dates. Detailed instructions will be posted on Brightspace.
An Ethics Statement for Group Assignments (see end of this syllabus) must be signed (with an
image of your real signature) by participating group members and added to the end of the
submission document. Those who do not participate should not be allowed to sign the Ethics
Statement. Failure to sign the ethics statement may result in a 50% deduction of your grade.
Although there are 6 assignments, only the best 5 assignment’s grades will be counted. This
is automatically calculated by Brightspace throughout the semester.
For all group assignments, members not contributing adequately, producing poor quality work,
missing group meetings, etc. will receive lower marks than their teammates. This lowering of
group marks for the non-contributing team member can occur at any time before final marks
are computed. If your team has such members, please let me know immediately.
Quizzes: (5 * 3 marks = 15%)
Quizzes will be used to test your understanding of the topics covered in class and prepare you
for the exams.
Quizzes will take place on Tuesdays in class on Brightspace approximately 15 minutes before
the end of class on the dates indicated in the class schedule.
Format: 10 Multiple-choice and/or True/False questions.
Duration: 10 minutes.
Students who are in a different time zone and cannot take the quizzes live should contact the
professor immediately to arrange for an alternate time to take the quizzes.
Midterm exam (25%)
When: Tuesday October 17th, 2023, towards the end of class time
Where: Brightspace – in class
Duration: 50 minutes
Format: Multiple-choice and/or True/False questions and case-study questions
Material Covered: Topics 1 to 5, including book chapters and class activities (i.e., slides, class
discussions, case studies, videos, etc.)
ADM 2372A Fall 2023– MIS – Course Outline – Page 5 of 14
Students who are in a different time zone and cannot take the midterm live should contact the
professor immediately to arrange for an alternate time to take the midterm.
If you justifiably miss the midterm (only for medical exemptions as defined by the university),
the exam’s weight will be shifted to the final exam.
Final exam (35%)
When: TBD – date set by the university.
Where: Brightspace– in-person location to be specified and proctored by the university
Duration: 150 minutes (30 + 120 minutes)
- Part 1: 30 minutes, 30 Multiple-choice and/or True/False questions, worth 15%.
- Part 2: 120 minutes, case study with 10 brief essay questions, worth 20%
Material Covered: Topics 1 to 12, including book chapters and class activities (i.e., slides, class
discussions, case studies, videos, etc.)
To pass the course, you are required to obtain a combined mark of at least 50% in both exams.
Please note that it is not possible to submit extra coursework to improve your mark.
Instructional Methods
This in-person only course contains both synchronous and asynchronous activities, purposefully
designed to provide flexibility in your learning process. The course is designed in a sequential modular
structure on Brightspace, with resources and complete quiz and group assignment instructions and
deadlines included.
Synchronous activities will be completed during the in-class sessions, while asynchronous activities
can be completed online at any time once made available on Brightspace (Content modules,
discussion forums and assignments). All 12 topics’ slides are posted at the start of the semester.
Recording of sessions
As all classes are in-person, students are expected to attend all classes, as class sessions will not be
If for some reason (severe weather or possible pandemic restrictions) causes this to change, and some
classes are moved to Zoom and recorded, then your image, voice and name may be disclosed to
classmates. Note that by remaining in sessions that are being recorded, you agree to the recording.
• You may turn off your camera and microphone if you do not want to be recorded.
• ask questions or share comments via the “Chat” function or send your questions as a private
• know that you can request to pause the recording if you want to share something but are not
comfortable with the recording.
The recordings will be available on Brightspace after the class and will be removed after 1 week. Do
not share the class recordings with anyone.
ADM 2372A Fall 2023– MIS – Course Outline – Page 6 of 14
Expectations for student participation
It is extremely important to review each lecture’s material before the synchronous in-class time. There is a direct
correlation between students who pre-read the material and come prepared to class and those who do well on
the quizzes and exams. You are expected to attend all the classes and participate with your questions, ideas,
and experiences. Access to the final exam may be denied for students who did not attend (or view) more
than three (3) synchronous lectures.
Technical Requirements and Support
This course requires that you to have a laptop or desktop computer with a reliable, high-speed Internet
connection that allows you to participate in video conference calls, watch videos, participate in
discussion forums, upload images, and use your uOttawa OneDrive accounts. It is also required for all
quizzes and exams on Brightspace and for meeting the professor during office hours.
This course will use Zoom for any classes that may be moved to on-line due to environmental
conditions. You will need to have a webcam and audio/voice capabilities through your computer. While
Zoom can be used through a smartphone application, it is highly recommended that you use a laptop
or desktop computer. Some features such as breakout rooms may not be available through the
smartphone application.
If you experience difficulties with Brightspace or with logins to any uOttawa systems, please do not
contact the instructor or the course TA until you have tried to solve the problem through the IT supports
in place at the University.
For all questions related to Brightspace, call the support line between 8 AM and 8 PM (Ottawa
Time) at 1-866-811-3201 OR submit an online request using this form 24 hours a day.
For any other IT related issues, please contact IT services. They have a helpdesk that you can call,
or you can submit a service ticket with a specific request 24 hours a day.
For problems connecting to the library services, you can also contact the Library Help Desk through
this online form.
Expectations for Communications
Students are asked to monitor their uOttawa.ca e-mail accounts regularly and carefully (not your
personal email accounts such as Yahoo, Gmail, or Hotmail) as this is the conduit through which the
professor and TA will communicate matters that concern the entire class.
Please ensure that you have set up your Brightspace account to receive notification of announcements
to your uOttawa.ca email address.
The professor will only respond to email messages from registered students using their uOttawa.ca
email account. ALWAYS indicate ADM2372 in the subject line and your Group number if relevant.

monthly Performance Management column for Canadian Government Executive (CGE) Magazine for
5 years.
Murray is a Certified Management Consultant (CMC) and a Fellow Certified Management Consultant

Selected Publications:
Co-Author, "Why Can't We Get the Expected Results from our Government Projects?"
published at the PPX Annual Symposium and on LinkedIn, May 2021. The article is about
making public-sector projects more successful - not in the classic "on-time / on-budget / inscope" perspective, but one that actually accomplishes the changes and results that were
promised up front. That likely means that the "project" doesn't end when the Project Manager
thinks it does - it ends only when the benefits are demonstrated and realized.

Co-Author, "When the Measures Get Tough, the Tough Get Measuring", June 2017 issue of
Canadian Government Executive (CGE) Magazine. The article recognizes that some
performance measurements are more difficult than others, but if it can be observed, it can be
measured in some way. Best Practices in six areas are discussed.
Co-Author, "Does Deliverology Deliver?", December 2016 issue of Canadian Government
Executive (CGE) Magazine. The article examines the UK's Deliverology approach to managing
and monitoring a set of clearly defined activities and their similarly clear expected
outcomes. Lessons Learned are discussed, along with some practical considerations for the
transition to the new TBS Policy on Results. http://canadiangovernmentexecutive.ca/doesdeliverology-deliver/
Co-Author, "Benefits Management: A better method for maximizing performance", May 2015
