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
Anyone knows where I can find this info? I've just searched the Davenport article and couldn't find the word Islands nor automation.
Can anyone tell me on which page of the article he talks about islands of automation?
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!
You have to go on student portal on the normal MIS course page, then click assignments in tool bar, and then you can download the document for the group assignment which contains the recommended extra literature for all topics!
Please note that the title of the summary is wrong. However, the content is still correct and corresponds to the article 'Is it all a game? Understanding the Principles of Gamification.'
Sorry for that. :)

Hey peeps, I have the resit and I saw that I used an exam from 2013 when I was studying for the first time this february but cant find the document nor any answers to that. Does anybody know where the exams of previous years like 2015, 2014,2013 can be found ?
Hey guys, do you have any idea how to calculate whether you passed or failed? It says the multiple choice part weighs 60% and the open quiestions part weighs 40% of the total grade. I have 36 correct in multiple choice so how much points do I need to get for the open questions then? (I believe I will get 19-23points for open questions)
it means that you get sufficient grade only for multiple choice part, not for entire exam

Hey short question, I hope it's not too off-topic:
Can anyone tell me what the most used ERP software solutions are?
Which one is the go-to tool which most companies use? Or is the market diverse?
I'm grateful for every answer.
