Seminar in Innovation Management
An essential, "make or break" aspect of today's organizational environment is innovation. Students in this seminar course are provided with the opportunity to position themselves for professional success in management through the study of concepts, processes, and tools needed to accelerate the rate, breadth, and depth of innovation within any organization. Students examine what innovation is and is not, as well as how to establish the organizational policies, processes, and employee-support infrastructure required to facilitate successful innovation throughout organizations. Students assess current information through extensive use of topical journal articles and papers as well as classic articles and papers related to the field of study. They also disseminate their findings to their peers through group discussions.
