ME2067 Industrial Transformation and Technical Changes (ITTEC) 6.0 credits
Industriell omvandling och teknisk förändring (ITTEC)
The theoretical basis of the course is derived from innovation theory with strong connections to evolutionary and institutional economics. The area of Industrial dynamics has a strong interdisciplinary character related to fields such as technology history, technology, sociology, economic history, economic geography and economics. Industrial Dynamics has a strong technology and industry-focus and provides students with tools to manage industrial change processes. The course covers management issues on a "meso level" - that is, strategic leadership to meet industrial change. The majority of today's most challenging industrial management problems originate from rapid technological and industrial transformation caused by pressure for change such as globalization, climate change and radical shifts in technology.
