MGMT 594 Global Innovation and Entrepreneurship Summer 2010 Mondays and Wednesdays 6:00 PM – 8:30 Grant 205 June 14 to Aug 4 Instructor Dr. Christopher M. Barlow (630) 221-9456 Office Hours By appointment UH 2204 Generally extremely available by e-mail Objective: This course is designed to prepare you to participate in and lead top management teams dealing with global issues. In addition to addressing issues of innovation emerging into and succeeding in the real world we will discuss and apply methods to improve teamwork and complex creative thinking, forming cross-program, multi-national teams around innovations (or new business models) of interest. Teams will first select and analyze the actual steps of the emergence of a successful innovation, then will select a newly emerging innovation and suggest ways that it can succeed. Final reports will be evaluated by visiting managers and UIC alumni. Individuals will demonstrate their learning by summarizing key strategy concepts and applying them to their own lives and careers. Text Books and Materials: ± The Slow Pace of Fast Change: Bringing Innovations to Market in a Connected World (Hardcover) by Bhaskar Chakravorti Harvard Business School Press (June 12, 2003), ISBN-13: 978-1578517800 ± The Innovator's Dilemma: The Revolutionary Book that Will Change the Way You Do Business (Paperback) by Clayton M. Christensen. Harper Paperbacks (January 7, 2003) ISBN-13: 978-0060521998 ± Downloaded handouts from library and Blackboard. Approach: Seminar/Workshop Each class will blend the seminar approach, discussing the various readings, with the workshop approach in which project teams will immediately apply the concepts to their projects. To make this work, you will read and post online your discussion of each week’s text materials by Sunday Noon, giving you time to look over and discuss online your classmates’ insights before class. The in-class workshop time will enable you to organize your individual and group project work outside of the classroom. As we close class each night teams will report the action items team members have committed to. Grading:
