Welcome to Organising for Innovation!
How to organise for innovation is becoming a key question for many organisations today, and essential for those wanting to be successful on the market. This has led to the emergence of new ways of organising for innovation going beyond the borders of one organisation and working with new actors like users, communities, customers etc. Innovation is no longer only created inside one organisation; instead it often relies on ties with multiple partners and dealing with conditions of uncertainty.
As many of you will work in companies and organisations trying to innovate, this means that you need to gain a better understanding of how to organise for innovation in this new reality. But in order to understand what is happening, we also need a solid understanding of how it used to be. Therefor, this course will introduce you to what organising for innovation is today and what it could be in the future. We will involve practitioners from different types of organisations providing stories and examples of what is challenging and exciting about the organisation they work in.
You will be asked to put the knowledge you gain in the course to use in a team project, where you will need to identify an organisation where you will conduct interviews etc. in order to analyse a real-life organisational context of some form.
The course is based on both individual and team-based activities. We will have lectures with interwoven activities, literature seminars, a team project and a home exam at the end of the course.
A preliminary course literature list is available in the folder Literature here on Canvas
The course PM will be uploaded closer to course start
The course leader and examinator is researcher Kamilla Kohn Rådberg, PhD. Carina Jogevik is course administrator. We look forward to meeting you in January 2024!
