Inhalte der LV


This course aims to provide students with an insight into what it means to innovate with Information Technology. IT is a highly dynamic and complex field. Successful entrepreneurs and managers in IT driven companies need to have an excellent grasp of the fast moving product environment in which they operate. They need to be aware of the latest technologies emerging, which constantly shift their competitive environment. In the constant hunt for ideas, new product development procedures need to be embraced, including the harvesting of crowd wisdom or other forms of distributed innovation. Corporate processes and strategies need to be aligned with the fast moving external forces they face while taking account of their internal capabilities. Finally, it is essential that IT leaders act wisely in the challenging environment that surrounds them. They need to take sustainable and ethical IT investment decisions that can create long-term stakeholder value. This course gives students guidance on how to approach the challenge.
