Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

This course will introduce the concept of disruptive innovation, review exemplary innovators in health care and technology industries and examine advances in personalized medicine. Armed with this knowledge, students will identify a challenge in the context of preclinical drug develpment and interactively experience a creative process for designing an innovative solution. The challenge will provide a framework to explore the unique leadership competencies required to guide and shape creative teams, inspire the imagination needed to formulate and recognize a good idea, transform it into an innovation, and strategically present and communicate it effectively and persuasively. This course is in English and fulfills 2 ECTS.
1. What to expect: No single best strategy, or formulaic solutions! Although there is a great deal of research and literature covering the topic of innovation, there is no established protocol to guarantee success. In fact, the vast majority of innovation projects fail while some arise spontaneously. However, clear evidence from formal research supports the premise that implementation of creative environments and customized leadership that supports those environments are prerequisite for successful innovation within organizations.
2. Innovation awareness: This course will heighten your awareness of innovative people, firms, products and services. Why are they innovative and how did they change the way we do things. This knowledge is essential for understanding the unique leadership that is required to foster creative environments and be comfortable with creative processes for problem solving. Increasing your repertoire of knowledge will help you feel more confident with creative interactions, be better equipped to manage unpredictable challenges that arise during problem solving, and put effective strategies and behaviors into practice in order to achieve innovative outcomes. All of which can be applied to a variety of situations that you may face throughout your professional lives.
3. The Adult Learning Model: Adult learners take responsibility for their own learning and understand learning as a cooperative venture with other adults. They expect to be intellectually challenged, to discuss real experiences, to apply concepts and ideas directly to real situations. They make the commitment needed to achieve a beneficial learning experience. The classroom activities will be experiential and therefore require active participation and teamwork.
4. Class Session Format: Each session will involve a lecture, group exercises and/or team project work. Research and project work outside of class will be necessary in order to meet the milestones outlined for the course.
5. Laptops, tablets (ipads, etc), phones: Devices that will enable you to search the internet and gather information for your projects and class discussion are allowed and encouraged in this class. Please bring these items to class if you have them.
