BMGT44120 Leading the Innovative Enterprise

Academic Year 2021/2022

This module will help participants to understand that creativity and innovation involve processes that can be designed, learned, and applied in order to increase their impact in intrapreneurial and entrepreneurial ventures. The module starts with a theoretical overview of innovation theories and concepts such as creative destruction, disruptive innovation and diffusion of innovation. They will be contrasted and discussed in great detail. Once these innovation theories are firmly understood will we explore the conditions under which creativity and innovation may proceed. For example, what is the impact of trust and reward on innovation? Also, what leadership behaviour is driving innovation and what leadership behaviour impacts innovation negatively. It will also explain how teams should be led to ensure that their ventures obtain the greatest benefit from creativity and innovation. The module will cover both theory and practice in innovation, and involve a mix of lectures, cases and practical applications including innovation in a range of fields and disciplines.
