System Process Management (MANM101) – Postgraduate

Role: Lecturer and Module coordinator

- Module description: This module examines the Big Data phenomenon. The module underscores the relationship between operations management on a day-to-day basis and its subsequent usage in modelling and analytics-driven managerial decision making. This module also provides hands-on experience with an enterprise software system (SAP).

Informatics for Decision Making (MANM302) – Postgraduate 

Role: Lecturer and Module coordinator

- Module description: This module introduces the foundations of knowledge management, epistemology and semantics as sources to identify, capture, create, and distribute organisational knowledge. The module describes these strategies, along with the new roles and responsibilities for knowledge workers in the age of Big Data.

Decision Making and Insights – Executive MBA

Role: Lecturer

- Module description: This module provides a solid understanding of how managers can make informed decisions that are likely to add value. The module is set firmly in the context of Big Data – the challenge for managers is not in finding information, but understanding information. This module is about working out the things that really matter, differentiating between the interesting and the important, and understanding how complexity can be deciphered to make the right decision.
