About the Course

Innovation strategy is about creating unique value for consumers by delivering a great product that satisfies their needs. This course introduces the fundamental strategy concepts and tools that enable firms to manage technological innovations for competitive advantage. It does so by first considering the sources of technological change and how to leverage technologies to create firm value. It then examines the various mechanisms for extracting value from technologies, both legal (e.g., patents, trade secrecy, etc.) and strategic (e.g., lead time, complementary assets, etc.). We will explore the fundamentals of technology strategy through readings and case studies in both established and entrepreneurial firms across a range of technology-based industries. You will be able to: - Learn fundamental strategy concepts and frameworks for technology-based firms - Apply theories and frameworks toward the analysis and formulation of strategies for creating and capturing value through technological innovations - Develop an ability to think strategically and make decisions under uncertainty and risk - Develop skills in performing analytic research and preparing professional reports - Develop skills in managing diverse teams and working under time and resource constraints This course is part of Gies College of Business’ suite of online programs, including the iMBA and iMSM.
