The main objective of this course is to help students understand the knowledge and skills required to manage innovation and change. To aid this understanding a number of perspectives are necessary. First we look at innovation from an industrial perspective, showing how innovations of product, process and organisational structure can create and destroy markets. The course then considers innovation within an organisation, showing how innovation can be used to create and sustain a powerful competitive advantage. As important as the internal organisation is we also consider the importance of the external focus, particular the course examines the concept of innovation in the virtual world to understand its long term impact. Finally we examine innovation from a managerial perspective, highlighting the skills and systems required to maintain innovation within different organisations and markets.
