Term: Spring 2018 - E-term III (01/16/2018 - 03/09/2018)
Managing Growth and Innovation deals with central concepts and related applications at the intersection of technological innovation, organizational growth, and corporate entrepreneurship or intrapreneurship.
Technological innovation is increasingly becoming the source of sustainable competitive advantage for firms, especially in disruptive business environments. Yet, building an organization to successfully and repeatedly bring technological 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, which are central to intrapreneurship, can help organizations counteract this tendency.
Throughout the course, we will examine four aspects of technological innovation and their impact on organizational growth: exploring, executing, leveraging, and renewing innovation. The course will draw on rigorous theoretical understanding of innovation in disruptive environments and develop a toolbox of strategies and practices managers use to effectively manage innovation and organizational growth when operating under these operating contexts.
