Literature for the "Business IT Alignment" Course, ITU spring semester 2009

pencil icon, that"s clickable to start editing the post

In the spring semester of 2009 I've taken the course "Business IT Alignment". My preparation has been quite crippled by what seems to be a continuous stream of influenza that I've picked up since the day before new year (I've coined it The ultra-flu). In my effort to prepare for the exam I've several times found my self searching for the right articles and the related course slides, so here I've decided to create a post to build up that information (probably only of real interest for myself).

The Course seems to have run at least since 2005, with Lars Andersen taking part in 4 consecutive years. This semester with a completely new duo of teachers. The base reference is the course program [PDF]. Supplemented with the course homepage/slides from this and the previous semester:
