The management of innovation is one of the crucial and challenging aspects of modern organisations. By creating value, innovation is a fundamental factor of competitiveness. Innovation being undoubtedly uncertain and risky, it makes very often difficult for new innovative technologies to be translated into successful products and services. Given this, it is of high importance for students to understand the strategies, tools and techniques for managing innovation, which often requires a different set of management knowledge and skills from those used in everyday business administration.
This course aims to equip management students with an understanding of the main issues in innovation management. For this purpose, a number of methods and approaches based on real-world examples and experiences from leading international organisations and local startups will be presented.
- Identify different types of innovations
- Describe the innovation process
- Demonstrate a solid theoretical understanding of the innovation process and the associated management
- Analyze the interal conditions for successful innovations
- Tell how to nurture innovative capacity in the firm and how to build a creative organisation
