Omschrijving The management of innovation processes helps both entrepreneurial new ventures and established organizations to innovate successfully. Firms frequently require various internal and external sources that are important for innovations. In this context businesses face several challenges to successfully recombine different sources of knowledge. Students will approach the management of innovation by learning how organizational and industrial context shapes innovation and which strategies firms apply to innovate and generate value from innovations. We start with discussing the characteristics of knowledge from an economics perspective and the relevance of innovation for firms and society. Introducing different types of innovations and the role of innovation for industrial dynamics will allow students to build a thorough understanding of the context in which firms innovate. Based on these insights we discuss the relevance of various actors in the process of innovation and collaborations among them. The importance of information systems and technologies in the innovation process and its relevance for organizational networks will complete this course and allow you to better understand how organizations innovate in a dynamic context.
