Innovation Management - BUSI96021
This module aims to equip students with an understanding of the main issues in the management of technological innovation and an appreciation of the relevant skills needed to manage innovation at both strategic and operational levels. It provides evidence of different approaches based on real-world examples and experiences of leading international firms.
This module will enable students to develop an understanding of analytic frameworks for managing the innovation process. In particular students will be able to examine the patterns and sources of technological change and the mechanisms for capturing the economic benefits from innovation as well as to identify the strategic and organizational challenges involved in managing technological innovation.
Students will develop an ability to design innovation strategies that can successfully take advantage of innovation opportunities. They will also learn how to evaluate different options, formulate and develop strategy and assess and resolve managerial challenges.
Technology and Innovation Management - BUSI97181
Innovation management is one of the most challenging and exciting areas of managerial practice. In many industries, the ability to innovate is critical to building and sustaining competitive advantage. It provides the means to allow organisations to grow and prosper. Innovation is about more than generating ideas; it is also about implementing these ideas and capturing value from them. Although innovation is inherently complex and uncertain, there are a range of tools and practices that can help organisations be more successful at the developing of new products, processes and services.
Drawing on the experiences of leading innovators, this module aims to equip students with the skills to organise and shape the innovation process within modern organisations. The module draws on insights from the Business School’s vast research programme, as well as our experiences working with leading innovators, such as IBM, Arup, Nokia, P&G, HP, and others. By the end of the module, students should be able to understand and interpret managerial strategies associated with different types of innovation. They should know the different ways organisations seek to profit from their innovations and how best to organise the innovation process within the firm.
