4. Understand how different issues interact within multinational firms.
Omschrijving The course Innovation Management in Multinationals introduces the complexities of innovation management in multinational firms. But because multinational firms operate in several countries, innovation management increases in complexity. For instance, how do you organize your innovation efforts: one central R&D department or several departments in different countries? How do you encourage knowledge sharing among different locations? How do you create effective teams when the members are living in different countries, representing different cultures? This course offers an introduction to innovation management in multinational firms that is structured around three major themes: (a) innovation management, (b) knowledge and networks and (c) teams in multinationals. The course combines plenary lectures about these themes with practical assignments in smaller groups where students apply the knowledge gained to a specific situation (i.e. a specific company and innovation).
