LDR 7100 Managing Innovation and Change

In this course, students will apply innovation theories to their organizations and to cases. They will strategically develop integrated business models and offerings that can’t be easily imitated by competitors. They will develop plans to pilot test or prototype these innovative approaches and will think about how to manage possible implementation problems. Students will also explore what kinds of mindsets work against innovation and how leaders can counter those mindsets. Using evidence-based management principles, students will become proficient at asking relevant questions, and acquiring, appraising, aggregating, applying and assessing information. They will develop, articulate, and defend distinctive points of view grounded in the innovation literature and in evidence related to proposed strategies.
