Om utbildningen

Contemporary research and practice demonstrate that digitalization
changes the basic premises of innovation in many industries. Mass
markets, dominated by volume products, are rapidly turning into a mass
of niches, allowing for variety and multiplicity. Rather than being an
output from corporate R&D departments, this variety derives from
inherently distributed innovation activities, taking place in loosely
coupled networks or ecosystems. These ecosystems tend to revolve around
digital platforms. In contrast to traditional, modular product
platforms, such a digital platform allows for distributed networks to
pursue unconstrained combinatorial innovation by gluing elements from
different layers using a set of protocols and standards to create
alternative digital products.

This course focuses on the different challenges facing industrial
organizations as they seek to capitalize on digital technology. It
offers (1) an overview of inherent tensions between industrial
innovation and digital innovation, (2) explores some fundamental
properties of digital technology, and (3) outlines alternative
strategies for building sustainable digital innovation practices in
industrial settings.
