Sobre o curso

You may have noticed that what is new often behaves differently than what has become accepted over time whether it is in a market, technology, or with people and firms. This course helps you develop a perspective on managing innovation. That is, you will build your capability to lead and design your organization in effectively implementing innovation initiatives and achieving their strategic intent. To do this, you will learn a set of frameworks, tools, and concepts that can help you address several important challenges in managing innovation. The first challenge is in regards to how to successfully implement innovation efforts within established firms and alongside established businesses. You then investigate the particulars of managing innovation when disruptive technologies are involved. Other topics include leadership of new product development teams, planning and evaluation of innovation initiatives, and management of innovation across organizational boundaries, as happens with alliances or virtual firms. You will be able to: - Analyze innovations and their impact on organizations - Articulate a research-informed perspective on innovation - Utilize frameworks, tools, and concepts to address challenges that arise in innovation This course is part of Gies College of Business’ suite of online programs, including the iMBA and iMSM.

Innovation obviously involves different stages. Ideation sort of come off easy for all but the most challenging part is the other side of innovation - EXECUTION. This is were companies struggle to birth their vision. A lot of this is attributed to the organization's leadership style, core rigidity due to core capabilities, less collaboration amongst functional systems/units, people and the organization's inherited culture. Strategic Innovation: Managing Innovation Initiatives, has helped in addressing this less popular side of innovation by addressing the above listed elements whilst torching the path to efficient execution of innovation initiatives. Glad to be a recipient of this wealth of knowledge

The course is overall great with a balance of knowledge and learning. However, the peer-graded assignments are needed to be revised such that the self pacing of the course is enhanced.
