Description

The management of innovation is one of the crucial and challenging aspects of modern organizations. By creating value, innovation is a fundamental factor of competitiveness. Innovation being undoubtedly uncertain and risky, it makes it 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, students will work on the future of innovation management and Industry 4.0 (I4.0) in the context of the circular economy. The aim will be to identify key actions and recommendations to develop innovations based on the possible futures of I4.0 companies. Students will be introduced to one foresight method to collectively construct scenarios of the future and design (innovation management) action plans for the present time.
