Course objectives

Learning processes and technological innovation provides a series of theoretical and conceptual frameworks for managing innovation in businesses evolution. The course enables the students to better understand the different types of knowledge and innovation in the current industrial landscape. The purpose of the module is to supply the students with the tools needed to manage the development of product-service systems through make‐or‐buy strategies. Moreover, the course will propose a critical view of the innovation processes by exploring several related concepts such as the servitiziation paradox. The course also integrates and deepens students’ knowledge and skills through a group project that requires them to innovate by finding solutions to challenging social problems using tools taught in the class.
