This course is one of the basic courses in the Master’s degree in Management, and more specifically in Innovation and Marketing and is aimed at offering students a critical perspective to the study of innovation and design issues. After an introduction on the methodological foundations and the context in which innovation is managed in contemporary firms, the course focuses on the analysis of a number of different approaches to the analysis of innovation and creativity in the organization, and on the role played by design in the study of innovative processes today.
