If you are interested or involved in the management of innovation, particularly science- or technology-based innovation, then this course has been designed for you.  The course provides understanding of the innovation process and key components of commercialisation. 

There are a number of different types of innovation - radical; architectural; incremental; business model - and contexts for innovation - established firms; new firms/ start-ups.  Each type and context requires a different management framework.  The course provides understanding of these different frameworks, including the skills and knowledge required, and of how to recognise which framework is the most appropriate to use.

Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion of the requirements for this course, participants will be able to:

  1. Describe the process involved in different types of innovation, and the role that commercialisation plays in this process in diverse organisational contexts.
  2. Analyse an innovation project, identifying drivers for success and factors leading to the risk of failure.
  3. Diagnose and select frameworks, tools and techniques for the management of innovation projects in different types of organisation.
  4. Develop an innovation strategy for an organisation, including input from a range of internal and external stakeholders.
