Læringsmål:After the course the student should be able to
1. Discuss theoretical foundations (i.e. theories, frameworks, and methods) of understanding and managing process innovation
2. Analyse recent technological trends and understand the potential of digital technologies for process innovation
3. Apply the key concepts from the theoretical foundations to practical cases on managing and organising process innovation initiatives
4. Reflect on similarities and differences of theories, frameworks, and methods covered in class and discuss advantages/disadvantages in different settings.
5. Reflect on possible intended and unintended consequences of applying the theories, frameworks, and methods taught in the course. 
Fagligt indhold:In today’s ever-changing business environment, organisations constantly need to respond rapidly to changing requirements and new opportunities in order to gain and sustain a competitive advantage. This course focuses on digital process innovation as a way to harness the potential of digital technologies to redesign organisational work processes and reconfigure internal and external resources to sense and respond to new opportunities and challenges.

The course will cover:
• The fundamentals of process-oriented management (e.g., lifecycle and maturity models) 
• Theories, frameworks, and methods for both continuous and radical process innovation (e.g., ambidextrous organisational design)
• How digital technologies (e.g., Internet of Things, blockchain, artificial intelligence) can support continuous and radical process innovation 
Læringsaktiviteter:14 ugers undervisning bestående af forelæsninger og lejlighedsvise øvelser

12 sessions consisting of lectures, workshops and exercises

We will mix traditional lectures with guest lectures, case-based presentations, theory workshops and exercises. We will also carry out workshops in which the students work with a common live case (a firm, a government agency or a not for profit organization visiting ITU). Facilitation for the case work will be provided. 

Obligatoriske aktivititer:There are four Mandatory Activities (MAs): Three group assignments related to the workshops, and one individual synopsis.

The MAs will be graded (either “approved” or “not approved”). All MAs need to be approved in order to take the exam. If one MA is not approved, the student has one second attempt to resubmit the MA within one week.

The student will receive a short feedback on the MA.

Further instructions will be provided via LearnIT.

Be aware: The student will receive the grade NA (not approved) at the ordinary exam, if the mandatory activities are not approved and the student will use an exam attempt. 
Eksamensform og -beskrivelse:D22: Aflevering med mundtlig eksamen suppleret af aflevering., (7-scale, external exam)

The submission is drafted by groups of one to four students.

A report should be approximately 15 pages plus 2 pages per student (i.e. one student 17 pages, two students 19 pages etc.).

Duration of exam: 30 minutes per student incl. assessment and feedback.
