This paper aims to provide a reflection on the issue of convergence of information systems and information management using a historical perspective and the experiences of two practitioners from different disciplines working together to deliver first degree and Master's teaching in this area.
The paper situates the teaching of business strategy and information strategy in a historical context and combines this with a reflection on teaching the subject in practice.
The paper finds that there is a need for exchange of perspectives and skills between information science and information management students which can be mutually beneficial and add value to their skill set.
In terms of curriculum design for information professional education, information systems students need a strong background in the business and user environment to leverage the technologies for business value.
The paper presents a case study of practice with a commentary on the dynamics of teaching the theme.
