ADMN 898: Managing Growth and Innovation

  • Deals with central concepts and related applications at the intersection of technological innovation, organizational growth, and corporate entrepreneurship.
  • To achieve the imperatives of sustained growth, technological innovation is increasingly becoming the most important “lever’ firms adopt, especially in disruptive business environments.
  • Yet, building an organization-wide culture to successfully and repeatedly bring innovations to market is a daunting managerial challenge. As organizations get more established, they often lose the innovative edge, finding that their very existence is threatened by their inability to innovate successfully. Leaders with a deep understanding of innovation and change management can help organizations counteract this tendency.

Upon successful completion of the course, students develop the following competencies:

  • Recognize the creative and innovative potential within himself/herself (through a “pre” and “post” assessment of a well-validated psychometric tool, The Innovator Mindset), including specific techniques of innovative thinking and creative problem-solving.
  • Understand the imperatives of firm growth and why it is so difficult for well-established companies to sustain growth. 
  • Explain how industries evolve and change and industry-level dominant standards come into play.
  • Form an appreciation of the multilevel nature of the innovation process in organizations and the role of leaders in strategic innovation.
  • Learn the steps involved in implementing innovation and the key considerations when taking charge of an innovation change effort.

Throughout the course, students work on a range of assignments, including a term long team-based project on assessing an innovative company of their choice. They also develop individual-level term-end reflection papers, summarizing their key learning takeaways and how they plan to apply them in their own organizational settings.

Additional Course Description: 

Clearly, the world has changed dramatically in the past ten years. For example, in 2007, many consumers had flip phones with screens that were only slightly larger than a postage stamp and mobile marketing was still in its infancy. As technology has changed, so too has the way that consumers acquire information about the goods and services that they wish to purchase. In short, in order to achieve long-term success, marketers must develop the ability to reach and engage with their customers via a variety of digital platforms.

This course is designed to help you develop the kinds of digital marketing skills that employers are currently seeking and that will enable you to succeed in today’s marketing environment. We will cover a number of key topics including (but not limited to) website and search engine optimization, email marketing, social media, paid search, mobile marketing, customer persona development, and influencer marketing.

This class is 100% online and hence, we will use a “hands-on” approach to help you build the digital marketing competencies that you will need after graduation. This means that we will rely on a variety of different instructional tools including online lectures, the course discussion board, focused weekly assignments, and an interactive digital marketing simulation to achieve our learning objectives. More specifically, over the course of the term, you will develop your digital marketing skills and demonstrate your understanding of the course material by interacting online with your professor and your peers, preparing the required weekly assignments, completing scheduled quizzes, and participating in a realistic (and highly engaging) digital marketing simulation.
