Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2015-2016.

This course introduces the fundamental strategy concepts and tools that enable firms to manage technological innovations for competitive advantage. It does so by first considering the sources of technological change, how technologies create value for firms, and how to manage and motivate knowledge workers. It then examines the various mechanisms for extracting value from technologies, both legal (e.g., patents, trade secrecy, etc.) and strategic (e.g., lead time, complementary assets, etc.). We will explore the fundamentals of technology strategy through readings and case studies in both entrepreneurial and established firms across a range of technology-based industries. This course is designed for students who intend to pursue careers in consulting, new product development, entrepreneurship, and finance where technology and intellectual property are important sources of competitive advantage.
