2 2 Innovation and Entrepreneurship INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVES Course Purpose & Objectives In the current hypercompetitive and dynamic environments, compagnies must be able to create its markets and the competition rules for tomorrow so as to either maintien its competitive position or to invent the new markets of growth. Innovation is not any more one particular moment in the development of the company ("one new product every 5 years ") but a continuous process of growth, drawn by technological innovations (IT) and customers expectations (mass customisation, communities..). Companies must then be able to regularly rebalance their businesses portfolio (Product Innovation) and to reconceive their innovative processes (models of management, decision making, design...). The innovating company is also a learning based company, in connection with its environment. The innovating company must have the capabilities to manage strategic, organizational and cultural ambivalences (exploration vs. exploitation; analyze vs. inventiveness; competition vs. co-operation...); The aim of the course is to present the various innovation processes set up by the companies and to draw the attention to the specificities and the difficulties of the innovation management and of the innovative company. The core course will be also the occasion to look further into the characteristics of the innovation processes of certain industrial sectors (biotechnology and health/pharmacy, autocar, IT offer...). The link between innovating company and learning based company will be explained. Course Contribution to Programme Learning Goals GM6 - Innovation is of main issue for companies and any other kind of structures and services nowadays. Any student has to understand how critical but risky and complex innovation management is. This course is directly in line with the LG n 6 of the ESC Master Program (Develop, and practice, a sense for innovation, entrepreneurship and creativity); and the final examination of the course has been chosen to measure this LG. GM2 - The content of the course helps students develop a strategic perspective of the companies development and on the importance of working on a collective basis within companies when development of complex projects (such as innovating projects) are concerned. GM4 - However innovation is under sustainable questioning when ability of change of professionals and individuals is concerned and when financial and economic pressures for innovation success may disturb professionals and individuals. Understanding of these questionings may provide students a responsible and valuable skill for business leaders confronted with leading discourse on innovation and management of innovation. Course Contribution to Application of Critical Thinking The traditional Innovation course has changed. Innovating projects management is rather seen as multi-professional team-based process and as democratised process (when users and other key leaders are integrated in the project itself). Critical thinking on how to work within cognitive and social distributed organisation is concerned. This questions also the involvement of numerous actors, since innovation is not the business of the top-management yet. Finally, innovation process leads to consider organisations differently. Companies are not developing innovation by themselves, within their boundaries, but with a large network of partners, actors, users, consumers. Companies have to manage a set of stakeholders and to
3 Innovation and Entrepreneurship 3 acknowledge that innovation may perturb or have critical consequences for its environment. Students should better understand the impacts of any innovation in its environment and the extent to which companies may protect their capabilities in innovation management and development.

Electronic pedagogical resources 1. Compulsory: Articles quoted in the PPT of each track (and accessible through Moodle or via Cyberlibris, if book chapters) 2. Not compulsory: additional readings quoted in the PPT of each track (and accessible through Moodle or via Cyberlibris); among them: a.

4 4 Innovation and Entrepreneurship Track 3 Track 4 management of multi projects portfolio, assessment of innovating projects management Diffusion of the innovation, new patterns for the adoption and diffusion of the innovation (sociological and economic approaches), co-design of innovation Innovating organisation as learning organisation, KM, communities of practices, intrapreneurship The teaching modes The course is taught on an e-learning principle, through the Moodle Platform, where students could have access to all the materials of the course and can ask questions to their coaches (via the forum). Mode of communication with your coach Two modes of communication are at the disposal of the coaches and of the students: - The news forum: general information on the course (date of the final exam...) is given by Corinne Grenier, the professor in charge of the course. Any student or any coach can not post information. - The Discussion forum: this forum is really dedicated to the communication between the students of each section and their coach. On this forum, students can ask questions to their coaches; they can discuss with other students also. And their coaches post information on the course he is in charge of (course section), such as: dates for the different assignments, advice for the quiz, the case study or the final exam... Please check regularly this forum. Normally, each student has access to the forum of his own course section.
