Learning Outcomes

Students gain large fundamental knowledge of business organizations and are able to define organizational concepts. Furthermore they can differentiate between those as well as transfer them to practical examples. Students are able to explain the different roles of organizational structures as well as analyzing organizational charts and workflows. Moreover they are able to identify basic design problems regarding the organizational structure and process organization and to develop solution approaches. Using their sound knowledge of delegation and compartmentalisation they are able to evaluate the efficiency of organizational frame structures regarding their suitability for practical use. Participants gain skills to determine the advantages and disadvantages of different principals and models of multidimensional compartmentalisation and are able to put their knowledge into practice and to identify the best fit for particular cases. Additionally students can name and clarify the problem areas of process organization. With this knowledge they can assess the efficiency of business processes. Students are able to contrast the discussed motivation theories with one another and are able to apply these to practical examples. Furthermore they are able to reproduce and discuss legal frameworks of organizations as well as barriers and methods for organizational change. The second part of the module offers an introduction in innovation management. The module explains why an independent innovation and technology management must ensure a systematic search for market and product changes and their realization. Adding the analysis of a company’s strengths and weaknesses, holistic technology-based company strategies can be developed. Apart of developing new products and services, new infrastructures and processes are developed. Therefore, new organizational structures are not satisfactory. Additionally, a corporate culture promoting innovation is needed. Such a corporate culture is strongly connected to key persons. These key persons are described as promotors. They have to be found, supported and bound. Additionally, aid must be provided by flexible, project-oriented structures. Furthermore, the topic of effective and efficient teamwork and entrepreneurial thinking in corporations is examined. Additional to the theoretical lectures the exercise offers students the opportunity to revise and expand on selected topics by interactive engagement with scientific papers on innovation research.
