Kursinnehåll

The course is based on the case method and the students will analyze a variety of innovation challenges and situations, based on theoretical perspectives. Theoretically, the course establishes a bridge between the two fields of leadership and organization theory, and how they link to innovation. The three fields have traditionally been separate and this course discusses how they can be brought together to create a deeper understanding for how innovation work can be led and organized. A growing body of literature is trying to bridge innovation and leadership, and the participants in the course are exposed to this new literature. In a similar way, the course covers relevant work in organization theory of relevance for understanding innovation work. The following major topics are covered in the course:

  • New and innovative forms of organizing
  • Flexible and agile forms of organizing
  • Boundary-crossing and open forms of innovation
  • Teamwork
  • Projects in innovation work
  • Charismatic and transformational leadership
  • Intersections of leadership and innovation

Connection to Research and Practice


The course connects to a broad stream of research on innovation and in particular on the role of leading and organizing innovation work. In that sense the course is very much driven by contemporary discussion in the field of innovation studies. The course also connects to important topics of research at JIBS, for instance drawing upon our expertise for instance in leadership and collaborative modes of organizing. The practical connections are secured through the consistent use of cases that are explored with the chosen theoretical approaches.
