Course Description: Innovation and technological change have been interlinked and are globally acknowledged as primary drives affecting the growth of national economies, social developments, corporate competitiveness, and the individual. Because innovation is an elusive notion to conceptualize and measure in a consistent, systematic way, a framework is needed to examine its interaction with information and communication technologies. This course takes a case study approach to analyze the interaction between innovation and ICT in order to establish a framework that provides students with a basis to examine the linkage between information and communication technologies (ICT) & innovation in their own industries. Using this framework, students will be better prepared to work effectively in industries for which technology-based innovation has become a reality and future certainty.
