The subject examines the theoretical and practical application of the strategic, organisational, and technological dimensions of innovation management. The subject consists of five modules which are strongly linked. The need for innovation focuses on the most fundamental problem of managing innovation management: the lack of urgency to innovate. The principles of product-market orientation explores the challenges of finding new markets for new technologies and develops a set of principles for product-market ideas. Resource allocation examines the resource allocation process which proves to be a critical link between strategy and innovation management. Innovation capabilities examines the organisational capabilities required to create an innovation culture. Technology strategy examines several dimensions of technology strategy in terms of when and why it is important to be a technology leader or follower; when and why companies can outsource some elements of the products and services they offer. Overall, students will develop tools, methods and frameworks as they study cases of companies in a range of industries. This would provide students with substantial knowledge and appreciation on how to create and manage innovative organisations.
A 2-hour examination (60%) and assignment(s) totalling not more than 4000 words (40%).
