  • Lecture content: Management

Scientific knowledge grows continuously but also experiences certain
alignments over time. For example, early cultures had the believe of a
flat earth while latest research has a spherical earth model. Also in
social science and business management, from time to time certain
concepts that have even been the predominant paradigm are challenged by
new observations and models. Consequently, certain controversies emerge
and build the base for advancing theory and managerial practice. With
this lecture, we put ourselves in the middle of heated debates for
informed academics and practitioners of the day after tomorrow.
The lecture targets several controversies in the domain of technology
strategy and innovation management. By the classical academic method and
the novel didactical format of a structured discussion, a given
controversy is scrutinized. On selected topics, students will discuss a
dispute and gain a thorough understanding. Specifically, based on a
brief introduction of a motion, an affirmative constructive as well as a
negative constructive is presented by two different student groups. Each
presentation is followed by a response of the other group and questions
from the class. Topics range from latest theories and concepts for value
capture, to the importance of operating within a global marketplace, to
cutting edge approaches for innovation stimulation and technology
management. Consequently, this lecture deepens the knowledge in
technology strategy and innovation management (TIM), enables a critical
thinking and thought leadership.
