ENGG3216: Management of Technological Innovation

Technological Innovation is a primary driver of industrial, economic and social development. The processes, practices and products of technological innovation influence the nature and trajectory of organisational and social change. This UoS examines the nature of, and approaches to, technological innovation both theoretically and practically. The commercial, social and cultural implications of technological innovation are analysed to determine the external environmental and internal organisational factors impacting upon successful innovation.Students will experience the nature of innovation processes and organisational change management through the learning experience and assessment in this UoS. The educational experience within this unit will include: understanding the processes of technological innovation and its relationship with the management of organisational change; the practical application of innovation and change management frameworks and techniques in organisations and teams; the management of complexity and uncertainty in the development of innovation and change; strategic environmental scanning to determine potential technological and business opportunities; and the development of group teamwork, communication and motivation for effective collaboration.
