Creating a sustainable innovative environment is a leadership task. In order to succeed at this task, leaders must develop innovative abilities to deal with the challenges inherent in a business environment characterized by fluid, unstructured and changing information. The aim of this course is thereby twofold.
First, the course delineates and describes different yet emerging innovation tools, organizing them into a coherent set of classes. Each class of tools is described using a set of up-to-date business cases that depict the current status of the information systems.
The second aim of this course is to get an overview of how to structure leadership systems towards innovation, how leaders can motivate to foster innovative thinking and what new forms of innovation (e.g. open innovation) mean for the definition of leadership.
In doing so, this lecture represents an Idea Transformation Class as students are encouraged not only to merely develop, but to actively deploy specifically developed concepts.
Registration via StudOn will be available after the Kick-Off (21st of October), where we will provide the necessary password.
