Learning Outcomes

• Gaining competences in performing a thorough literature search and analysis • Being able to identify relevant scientific papers for understanding and developing a specific research subject in innovation management • Ability to synthesize conceptual approaches into a (new) structured approach to a pre-defined topic • Understanding different empirical approaches in innovation management research, evaluating and concluding on validity of specific approaches, and being able to draw conclusions for future research approaches • Ability to generate and discuss new research perspectives based on a systematic analysis of published previous research • Overall, deepening the knowledge about the relevant body of literature in innovation management and gaining competences in performing a scientifically rooted master thesis


The seminar aims at introducing students to current topics of innovation management. These topics are approached through a comprehensive literature review performed by the students, with the aim of providing a sound picture of the body of knowledge for each specific topic. Students will learn to perform a systematic literature review, including topic search and ‘snow-balling’. They will have to develop a conceptual understanding of each topic, building on relevant literature, review empirical evidence critically, and discuss central results of past and current research. Performing a critical literature review, creating an understanding of the empirical basis for knowledge generation, and relating individual research results to each other, including discussing compatible and conflicting research results, is central to this seminar. At the end, students will have practiced a literature-based approach to a specific topic of interest, preparing them for understanding research progress and for performing a master thesis.
