As firms seek to compete in growingly global economies, innovation and knowledge become critical sources of competitive advantage. But how do firms innovate, what do they do with knowledge and how do they enable knowledge to be used for innovation? What role does learning play in the development of competitive advantage for firms? What kind of leadership is needed for innovation driven firms? This course explores these questions using a multimedia resource base, real life case studies and practical approaches.
