Strategy for Technological Innovation (T849)

For many organisations the need for ongoing technological innovation has become a strategic necessity. Even in traditionally stable sectors the option of maintaining the status quo is seldom viable. This creates challenges for how organisations understand and formulate effective strategy and create and maintain contexts that support strategic action. This module draws on a range of theoretical perspectives from both strategic and innovation management to produce a multi-layered, practical, approach to the strategic management of technological innovation. The module is suitable for anyone interested in developing or improving their skills and expertise in this area of organisational and managerial activity.
