Course Overview

Learners will examine the processes of managing technology and innovation within organizations as pathways to improving organizational productivity involving human, capital and operational resources. Learners will explore the critical role that both internally and externally acquired technology-linked innovations can play in organizational performance enhancement leading to increased productivity at the organization, department or strategic business/operating unit level. The course will culminate with each participant developing a technology informed innovation profile, preferably directed at their own organization, which demonstrates the development, implementation and evaluation of the impact on productivity that has been achieved through a significant technology-linked innovation that has been adopted.
