Synopsis:

Course covers the strategy of building, running and growing of innovative organization. Subject has four central themes: how to think analytically about designing innovative organizational systems; how leaders, especially founders, play a critical role in shaping an organization's culture; what really needs to be done to build a successful innovative organization for the long-term; and what can one do to improve the likelihood of personal success. Principles of organizational architecture, group behaviour and performance, interpersonal influence, leadership and motivation. Through a series of cases, lectures, readings and exercises, students develop competencies in innovative organizational design, human resources management, leadership and organizational behaviour. Subject focuses on the challenges inherent in attempting to take advantage of both incremental or routine innovation and more radical or revolutionary changes in products and processes. Highlights the importance of innovation to both new ventures and to large established firms and the organizational, economic and strategic problems that must be tackled to ensure innovation is a long term source of competitive advantage.
