Managing change and innovation are two of the most important and difficult tasks managers have to undertake. Technology and innovation are pervasive forces throughout society and organizations. They are both critical to establishing a sustainable competitive edge through either cost differentiation or a superior cost position. The purpose of this course is to provide students with the knowledge and skills that form the basis for successful project management and a strategic perspective on the role of technology and innovation in organizations. Students are also exposed to practical management tools that they can use to manage specific innovations and technological changes.
This course is restricted to students enrolled in the 3rd or 4th year of the Commerce Program.
