The theoretical background will be provided by multiple readings, your knowledge of which will be tested in a readings report. The practical tools will be provided via lecture/discussion sessions, your skills at which will be demonstrated in an innovation assessment for an actual innovation opportunity. In addition the teams will be required to present a proposed game-changing innovation that reconfigures the basis of competition in a selected industry.
