Omschrijving This course takes a broad view of the diverse themes relevant to strategic management in the context of innovation. The subsets of these diverse themes are handled in more depth in the more specialized courses in this program. The primary focus in this course is to link strategy to innovation management within the themes. In general, strategic management is typically described as a search for a fit between the firm and its environment. This is an ongoing process that is particularly challenging since the industry context and organizational context may both be in flux as technologies evolve.

Particular topics of interest include how to create a context that is conducive for innovation, how to source information, how to cope with the ambiguity and uncertainty, and how to adjust business models and strategies according to industry characteristics.
