14-täglich | Montag | 10:15 - 13:45 | 14.10.2024 - 31.01.2025 | C 7.320 Seminarraum

Inhalt: Do citizens have a role to play in developing their environment? To what extent can citizens shape the development of their city or village through entrepreneurship, that is, through pro-active engagement in problem-solving processes? This is particularly important for a more sustainable development. This seminar will prepare for and finish with a conference on Citizen Entrepreneurship (CE). The assignments consist of a case presentation (80%) and conference preparation & reflection. Thus, the course will provide you with 1. knowledge about citizen entrepreneurship, an increasingly relevant topic in the context of sustainability 2. experience on conference preparation 3. experience on conference participation. A kick-off will provide an introduction to Entrepreneurship, Citizen Entrepreneurship & Sustainability. We will discuss examples of CE and explore how to identify CE cases for you to work on. During the semester we will have several meetings for Q&A and feedback. The course will conclude with a conference: students and external participants will present and discuss cases of CE. The conference is planned for December.

Organization, Strategy and Innovation (Vorlesung)

Dozent/in: Markus Reihlen, Sarah Stanske, Ursula Weisenfeld

wöchentlich | Montag | 16:15 - 19:45 | 14.10.2024 - 02.12.2024 | C HS 2 | Rhythmus und Struktur wie im letzten Wintersemester

Inhalt: COURSE DESCRIPTION Managing organizations in today’s competitive and societal environment is complex and challenging. Think about the newspaper industry, which is undergoing one of its most fundamental changes triggered by the rise of digital technology. Firms are seeking salvation in a declining industry by creating new business models and defensive cost cutting strategies. The key issue we address in this course is how managers orchestrate the interplay between strategy, organization, and innovation for navigating their organizations through complex economic, cultural, political, and ecological demands. This course is built upon the premise that students of management should learn to combine state of the art scientific knowledge with practical applications and reflections. Instead of regarding the student as a passive memorizer of predefined knowledge, participants will reflect upon theories and become active inquirers themselves. COURSE STRUCTURE We will use a flexible teaching style mixing lectures, case discussions, and multimedia presentations whenever appropriate. It is imperative for you as a student to have read the required book chapters, articles, and cases before coming to class. Class discussion will be used to explore theoretical as well as practical business implications from an interdisciplinary perspective.

Responsible Research and Innovation (Seminar)

14-täglich | Mittwoch | 08:15 - 11:45 | 16.10.2024 - 29.01.2025 | C 6.317 Seminarraum

Inhalt: This seminar deals with the topic: Socio-technical transitions: Exploring responsible innovation. The course will use concepts such as social mechanisms and adoption & diffusion of innovations to explore whether and how systemic change towards more sustainability can be achieved. We will look at the micro (individual), meso (interactions) and macro (‘the specific system’) level to explore possibilities and obstacles to responsible innovation. Groups will focus on one level and in the final session we will 'build' a transition.
