Intended learning outcomes

This course provides the knowledge and skills to help students develop their own perspectives on innovation management. In this course, students will solve real challenges associated with innovative activities in small as well as large companies from the corporate level to the project and individual level. After completing the course, the students are expected to have reached the following learning objectives:

  • Identify, select, and analyse a situation-specific problem in innovation management or entrepreneurship.
  • Formulate and structure theoretically relevant issues on the basis of the current problem.
  • Choose and apply methods for real problems.
  • Produce effective written and oral communication of the project for each phase of the project.
  • Review and evaluate their own and other students' work.

Course content

  • Research methodology.
  • Development within different areas of innovation management such as innovative entrepreneurial ventures, innovation management in established companies, project management of innovation, open innovation, management of product development, etc.
  • Report writing, presentation, and opposition.
  • Application of a critical perspective.

Teaching and working methods

A small number of lectures and/or seminars introduce research methodologies and analyses that are suitable for understanding innovation management and entrepreneurship. In small groups, the students work on a project under the guidance of a tutor from the department. Some of these project groups will work together as “problem-based learning” groups. In seminars, these groups will discuss issues associated with research methodology as well as present and discuss their projects with each other. The study groups also serve as opponents for other groups. This arrangement encourages critical and constructive review of research and academic reports in innovation management. The course runs throughout the whole semester.

Examination

PRA1Project workU, 3, 4, 59 credits
UPG1AssignmentsU, G3 credits
The course grade is based on the results of the different tasks. The project work is assessed on the basis of the main criteria of logic/red wire and credibility, which includes the following:
  • The problem is clearly presented, problematized, and motivated by specific and clear research questions.
  • The theoretical frame of references for the specific problem is motivated, presented, and applied in a relevant way.
  • That methods and perspectives are grounded in theory and the methods are considered appropriate and applied appropriately.
  • The conclusions can be judged as credible and are logical consequences of the work presented.
