Teaching

During my academic career, I have taught a number of subjects ranging from the social (IS in context) to the technical (Java Programming, ERPs, and Telecommunications). Today my research responsibilities are:

Module leader for CS5553 ERP Deployment and Configuration; and for CS5601 Enterprise Modelling

Example topics of study include business process improvement alongside enterprise systems configuration and configuration management (including Master Data Management, business services, processes and functions). The module examines practical aspects of configuration in the context of the SAP R/3 environment.
