Strategic capabilities for technological innovation free course icon

 

Strategic capabilities for technological innovation

The need for ongoing technological innovation has become a strategic necessity for many organisations. Even in traditionally stable sectors, the option of maintaining the status quo is seldom viable. This creates challenges for how organisations acquire and manage the resources and capabilities necessary for effective approaches to innovation and create and maintain contexts that support strategic action. This online module draws on material from the resource-based view of organisations and strategic and innovation management more generally to produce a multi-layered, practical, approach to the development and management of technological innovation. It is suitable for anyone interested in developing or improving their skills and expertise in this area.

Innovation: designing for change

Innovations emerge from complex, dynamic, iterative processes. But how do designers, engineers, entrepreneurs, managers and users create opportunities and generate ideas for innovation? How are ideas developed into successful products, services and systems? What are the impacts of design and innovation? This online module uses a range of contemporary case studies to explore such questions. Its concerns go beyond innovation for commercial advantage to consider how, through responsible design, innovation can contribute to the development of a more sustainable future. The module includes a design and innovation project in which you will identify and research a problem, and develop your own solution.
