Course main content

Given that the students have basic knowledge within economics, leadership and industrial and technical change, this course focuses on leadership for these processes. Important concepts in the course include dominant design, different classifications of innovations (such as architectural, modular or radical innovations) and these are related to learning, leadership and business models. Different forms to organise the innovation process is analysed. The concept of innovation management is also related to entrepreneurial processes and industrial creativity, within both production and services.
