(4) Teaching objectives
In this course, the students acquire the latest marketing and innovation management know-how. You will learn how to develop successful concepts from ideas and how to introduce them to the market as innovations. What is required is to be able to react and act flexibly on the market through know-how with ever shorter product cycles and products relevant to consumers.
The skills acquired are supplemented by ideation or creative problem-solving skills.

(5) Lecture and exercise: Each unit starts with a lecture part. The exercise follows the "Design Thinking" method. The phases (inspiration, ideation, implementation) are carried out in a real-world project—primarily outside of the lesson (i.e., from one lesson to the next). In the 6th unit, the learnings from the five previous units are presented.


After completing the course, students can …
... describe the role of market-oriented innovation processes in the management of innovation.
... plan an innovation process using "Design Thinking", carry it out independently, and design it in a team.
... use selected method sets for generating, selecting, and implementing ideas.
… explain the theoretical underpinnings of market-oriented innovation processes and critically reflect on them.
