The Innovation and Change Management course consists of an introduction to the underlying theories and concepts relating to the innovation processes in the firm. Innovation is therefore explained with a constant reference to the Strategy and Strategic Management as the innovation process is a crucial part of the firm’s strategy. During the module, several models of innovation will be explored together with case studies and best practices for managers. Also, strategies for the protection of innovations through intellectual property rights are examined as means to guarantee the appropriation of benefits.
After the completion of the present module, students will have a better understanding of the innovation process and how it might be supported in a variety of organizations and will be able to critically assess business strategies for the development of new products, processes and organizational developments.
