Strategic Entrepreneurship and Innovation 15 hpUndervisningen bedrivs på engelska.
Kursinnehåll"Innovation is the specific tool of entrepreneurs, the means by which they exploit change as an opportunity for a different business or service. It is capable of being presented as a discipline, capable of being learned, capable of being practiced.”(P. Drucker, Innovation and Entrepreneurship, Elsevier, Butterworth-Heinemann, Burlington, Mass, USA, 2007, Classic Collection)
This course examines the theory and practice of promoting and managing entrepreneurship and innovation in engineering context, where such development is closely related to technology and manufacturing. It explores successful frameworks, strategies, techniques, business models, risks, and barriers for introducing incremental improvements as well as break-through products and services. Students are required to integrate their specific engineering knowledge to develop these issues beyond theory and into practice.
The course is divided in three highly integrated themes;
The entrepreneurial individual
The organizational prerequisites for entrepreneurship and innovation
The strategic assessment of innovations
- The entrepreneurial individual
- The organizational prerequisites for entrepreneurship and innovation
- The strategic assessment of entrepreneurship and innovation
All three themes are contextualized to engineering-intense situations and organizations. The development of each theme is depending on students to build on and bring into the discussion their various engineering backgrounds.
Connection to research and practice
In this course, students are required to integrate their specific engineering knowledge with the research-based content discussed above when addressing business-relevant challenges. All three themes presented in the content section are based on up-to-date research and in line with research being conducted at JIBS, as all readings in the course consist of articles published in highly recognized research journals.
This research-based foundation is then practiced in the extensive course project where students based on real company challenges are to develop new innovative solutions. Here the students are exposed to all phases in an innovative project (inspiration, ideation, and implementation (Brown, T. (2008). Design thinking. Harvard business review, 86(6), 84.
