The course on Innovatino in Product Development attempts to identify and understand the nature of innovation and product development and their important factors. The course takes both a theoretical and a practical approach and employs a mix of lectures, project work and group discussion.
The core of the course is based upon case-studies, videos, lectures from industrial guests and related textbooks. A range of topics are focused upon in the various sections of the course and through a combination of lectures, class discussions and presentations from the students, we try to reach deep insight.
The following aspects of innovation in product development are considered:
- Humans and products
- Needs and products
- Product life
- Teams creating products
- Products creating business
- Product development models
- Organising product development
- Product development tools
