Course Description

MGMT 274
Innovation in Business, Social, and Government Organizations

Can innovation be taught/promoted/managed? Building on a foundation of human-centered design, we will answer each of these in the affirmative using theory, empirical research, & hands-on practice. We use case studies, problems, & labs to teach you to participate in, & lead, innovation in for-profit, non-profit, government, & social enterprise. We will learn how to recognize significant problem opportunities, grow from failures (our own failures and those in the historical record), foster our own & others' creativity, & use the feedback that the world offers when we prototype our ideas.
