The book serves as a basic reference guide while the various articles serve to deepen the knowledge of students on each topic in the course. Lectures as well as discussions in the classroom are mostly supported by presenting cases and examples from practice. Additionally in the group based project work, students work on live cases in which they apply the theoretical principles learnt in the classroom in a real world scenario.
