This course is intended for students interested in improving innovation capabilities in complex organizations. The course presents a constraint-based model of innovation that diagnoses where innovation problems are likely to occur (i.e. at the individual, group, organizational, industry, societal, or technological level). In addition to learning how to manage innovative organizations and lead creative teams, participants will also practice improving their own creative abilities through the performance of an innovation project. While we will discuss examples of technical innovation, this is not a technology course; rather, this course is about understanding and managing people who are engaged in the process of creation, innovation and change. 
Please Note: Not all courses are scheduled each semester. Complete class schedules are available upon enrollment.
