This course is open to graduate students who are interested in learning about the evolution and role of technological innovation as a source of competitive advantage and value creation. This is useful for managing technology-oriented firms, creating technology-driven startups, or consulting to such firms. A background in the natural sciences or engineering is NOT required for the course and the course is designed to accommodate specialized or sectoral interests by students and address important topical issues such as health inequalities, climate change, education, and civic engagement. This course will approach technological innovation as a strategic function from the perspective of managers and entrepreneurs and consider the processes and structures for innovation. Students will also critically assess the impact of technology innovation on various stakeholder groups including negative externalities of technological innovation. The course will explore both internal and external sources of innovation as well as the appropriate strategies and processes for capitalizing on them through a systematic evaluation of alternatives and recommending particular technology strategy for emerging and existing organizations. This is a hybrid onsite/online course with a 3-day weekend residency on campus in New York City and online semester-long engagement.
