Abstract: Motivating business students in an Information Systems course is a unique challenge. In this paper, we discuss the use of a case study involving Enron in an IS Theory and Practice course. The case study points out what can go wrong when the business, organizational, and IS strategies within an enterprise are not balanced. Writing assignments as part of the case study are also highlighted.

Keywords: case study, Enron, IS strategy, IS 2002 Model Curriculum, writing assignments
