Innovative processes and their staging

While innovation is increasingly depending on the incorporation of knowledge from a diversity of sources, questions are raised as to what kinds of sources, and how they are incorporated in processes of innovation. As innovative challenges and conditions are changing with increasing pace these questions can not just be solved through a singular choice of organisation or established guidelines for selecting innovative ideas. Issues of how to stage the scene and circumstances and how to facilitate processes and the involvement of diverse actors in innovation has increasingly come into focus. Successful innovation is seen as the outcome of interactions within a broader network spanning across diverse organisational and societal boundaries and institutions.

Innovation, Strategy and Leadership

The course has a managerial perspective and integrates an overview of general strategic management and entrepreneurship theories. Participants will acquire skills for analysing internal and external environment and capabilities influencing SME start-up and change processes. Based on such analysis participants will obtain the capacity to plan and facilitate group-based strategic deliberation aiming at identifying business-level strategic choices. Finally, participants will be capable of identifying central aspects of strategy implementation, including organising the enterprise, leadership and management of people, information, finance and technology.
