Abstract The bloc-course is about change leadership. It provides MAS students with coaching and mentoring from two senior change leaders in the attempt to develop critical management skills and bridge the gap between theory and practice.
Objective The general objective of the course is to enable MAS students with post work experience to think critically about concepts discussed in class during the course of Introduction to Management (i.e., the transformation process by Nadler and Tushman, 1980) and their own professional challenges.
Content This course is tailored to, firstly, enable participants to understand key concepts of technology and innovation management and, secondly, gain practical "real-life based" leadership skills that improve their ability to implement massive innovative change in today's dynamic global work and marketplace. In consequence, the first part of the course explores foundational frameworks in technology and innovation management with a particular focus on the evolution and adoption of technology-based innovations. The second part of the course, then, provides tools for successfully implementing innovation initiatives at all levels - individual, project and organization.
Literature Literature and readings will be announced beforehand.
