This course builds insights and skills in innovation processes - the contexts and drivers of innovation, the types and outcomes of innovation - and provides frameworks and tools for analysing, enabling and managing innovation processes, mainly in established organisations. The course frameworks can be applied to scientific/technological innovations as well as to innovations in other contexts, including the public sector.  

The course explores different types of innovation - radical, architectural, incremental - also focal outcomes - new products, new processes, new business models - as well as different contexts for innovation - within established organisations, as well as start-ups and spin-offs.  Each type, focus and context requires a different management framework. The course provides understanding of these different frameworks, including the skills and knowledge required to use them effectively. 

The course is delivered in the form of seminars, workshops, case studies and practical exercises.
