KL Worldwide Enterprises, Inc.: Putting IT to Work
Case (Gen Exp)
The KL Worldwide Enterprises Inc. case provides a rich context within which to explore the information technology (IT) issues that confront a global enterprise engaged in the manufacture, sales, and distribution of durable goods. The primary purpose is to give students a real-world, hands-on simulation of an IT systems development process that spans the entire lifecycle of an IT project from initial project scoping and justification through acceptance testing and deployment. The KL case emphasizes the design and delivery of enterprise resource planning, supply-chain management, decision support system, and e-commerce solutions for both for-profit and not-for-profit organizations. The case leads the reader into a consideration of the many opportunities to improve KL’s performance through the better design and integration of IT-enabled processes and services, including designing a new e-commerce or DSS capability and reengineering KL’s supply-chain and product design practices.
