363-0389-00L | Technology and Innovation Management | W | 3 KP | 2G | S. Brusoni | |

Kurzbeschreibung | This course focuses on the analysis of innovation as a pervasive process that cut across organizational and functional boundaries.

Inhalt | This course looks at technology and innovation management as a process. Continuously, organizations are faced with a fundamental decision: they have to allocate resources between well-known tasks that reliably generate positive results; or explore new ways of doing things, new technologies, products and services. The latter is a high risk choice. Its rewards can be high, but the chances of success are small. How do firms organize to take these decisions? What kind of management skills are necessary to take them? What kind of tools and methods are deployed to sustain managerial decision-making in highly volatile environments? These are the central questions on which this course focuses, relying on a combination of lectures, case-based discussion, guest speakers, simulations and group work. | |||||
