Summary

This is a collection of lectures on "structured innovation systems," codified approaches to stimulating and managing the process of innovation. Some of the systems to be covered may be Design Thinking, Open Innovation, Crowdsourcing, Lean Innovation, and System Modeling Language.

Content

The intent of this course is to provide the technology manager with a toolbox of methods for approaching different innovation projects. Depending upon the type, method or goal of the desired innovation, an effective manager can implement different systems. Each lecture, or, for more detailed subjects, each set of lectures, will function as stand-alone units. Lectures will cover Design Thinking, Open Innovation, Crowdsourcing, TRIZ, Lean Innovation, and System Modeling Language, among others.

By the end of the course, the student should be able to compare and contrast the various systems and qualify why a given project might be better suited to what innovation system.
