Organizational complements are things that improve the performance of technologies by multiplying their impact. FIT, NIT and EIT each need different kinds of complements (or don't need any) at different points in time.
Yes, I guess this is a rhetorical question to “call me out” :) I didn’t think that was a problem since it’s an easy question for the definition of IS and I thought this just captures the core of it really nicely. As these are my answers to LGs and our tutor said they are not solely bound to the literature but we’re welcome to include prior knowledge or outside sources I included this at that point. If you don’t like that feel free to use someone else’s work or make one yourself :)! Otherwise I also summarized the reading that the Qs refer to so if you want an answer closer to the literature you can get it there as well :)!
For the exam, the grade is calculated in the following way:
0,6*(grade for MC questions) + 0,4*(grade for open questions) = overall grade
For the MC questions, you need 40 out of 60 to obtain a 5,5. For the open questions, you need 22 out of 40 points to obtain a 5,5. There is no minimum amount of points that you have to obtain on each part, as long as your overall grade is either a 5,5 or higher.

Can someone explain the difference between horizontal and vertical chunckification and give an example where it's applied to a process because I really don't get it
Horizontal: have several firms do the same task -> e.g. Nike has more than one factory that produces shoes; -> Nike can compare performance of factories (reduces shirking) and no factory has bargaining power (reduces opportunistic renegotiation)
Vertical: divide a task into different subtasks and have different companies do the different tasks -> e.g. one company cleans data for you > sends it to next company > next company extracts certain data > sends it to next company> next company divides data into categories > sends it to next company > last company analyzes data > sends it to you; -> every company has very little knowledge about what exactly they are doing for you and they also do not know exactly who the other companies are thus it reduces the risk of poaching
When implementing system modules via a phased conversion strategy, you still have the option of a parallel or cutover approach for conversing each phase of the system. A pilot strategy could include a parallel strategy at the pilot site
Thank you! Unfortunately I didn't manage to summarize all of the exam relevant articles, for the ones I didn't summarize myself i used either Simone Smolders or Daniel Schemmert summaries, majority of which you can find on his page since he made them last year already.
Amazing! Thanks a lot Zoe you have been helping us so much through all the courses so far and again for MIS, I am very grateful that you share with us your awesome summaries. Keep up the good work and good luck!
