The Strategic Management of Innovation course looks at the dynamics of innovation, systematic processes for successful innovation, strategic aspects of innovation, and how to build and sustain innovation-related capabilities.

Programme Overview
Indian firms lag behind their peers in innovation-related capabilities. As India seeks to grow rapidly over the next several years, Indian firms need to ramp up their level of innovation. In this program, we examine how to build and sustain innovation-related capabilities.

Programme Objective
Increasingly, innovation has become one of the critical drivers of competitive advantage. Firms that innovate have high profitability, high growth rates and higher chances of survival. Despite the well-known benefits of innovation, firms find it difficult to be truly innovative. In this program, we examine the dynamics of innovation, systematic processes for successful innovation, strategic aspects of innovation, and how to build and sustain innovation-related capabilities. In addition, we will dwell on the institutional antecedents of innovation and its intertwining with competition.

How To Apply for the Programme



  • The programme has helped me in appropriating the value from Innovation. The case studies and Simulation based learning has been extremely effective eg understanding the “Modeling uncertainties”. Even though I have been using certain concepts in day to day work, but new perspectives on Business canvas, has been an eye opener. From Simulation games to Lectures on Paradox, in all the programme has been a game changer for me.
