Overview

Course Overview:

Managing technology and innovation is essential to the survival and growth of companies, but it is a tricky business. Even well-established companies often lose their edge, finding their very existence to be threatened by their inability to manage for innovation. Clearly there is no “one best way” to manage innovation. The course aims to meet three objectives as the following: first, this course stimulates your curiosity and broadens your perspective by posing you puzzling critical dilemmas that deny some of your long-held assumptions and guiding you to think critically about them. You will understand that there is a critical gap between designing and developing innovative technologies and making them commercially successful (i.e., widely adopted); second, the course exposes you to various concepts and frameworks that will help you understand different aspects of technological innovation from a business strategy perspective; third, you will be able to apply the concepts and theoretical frameworks learned from the course to analyze the innovation of a company of your choice and propose sound and implementable recommendations to the company.
