Successful innovation requires much more than managing individual aspects of the single innovation process inside an institution, but there is required a systemic project approach, which deals with interactions between different stakeholders, their goals, innovation, markets, and organizations. Traditional innovation management usually focuses on goals and procedures for innovation planning, implementation rules, and controlling. This creates a framework to confine project team members to operate within a set of rules and measures. However, most innovation projects require project team members to be innovative and creative. An obvious strategy also in innovation, supportive corporate culture, budget, and motivation to innovate are often the basic preconditions for an innovation project. The primary goal of this course is to acquaint students with the key specifics of project innovation, project innovation management, and related intellectual property protection. After completing the course, a student should answer the following framework topics: How to identify and manage the project innovation scope, build a project breakdown structure, create a project innovation plan, create the project budget, define and allocate resources for innovation, manage the project development, identify and manage project innovation risks, and understand the project procurement process.


Continuous assessment of student work during the semester includes:

Write a seminar paper on a selected topic (suitable within the focus of lectures and seminars of the subject) for example on specific product innovation based on the Lean approach to increase the efficiency of production processes (e.g. elimination of waste). The required length of seminar work min. 15 pages. Citation according to ISO 690. The deadline for submitting the final version is by the end of the teaching period. Delivery takes place via e-mail.

Presentation of the work (between approx. 15–20 min.) of the main content and benefits of the seminar work during the semester in Week 12. resp. Week 13.
