Developing Integrated Solutions


Prerequisite/Recommended prerequisite for participation in the module

The module builds upon the knowledge acquired in 1st semester.

Content, progress and pedagogy of the module

The focus areas of the course are on developing and implementing integrated solutions to bring innovative products or services into new markets. This entails a focus on three different, but related, perspectives. Firstly, it is necessary to be able to set-up a value chain possibly including both upstream and downstream perspectives. Secondly, it is necessary to carry out effective project management and master the needed practical tools. Thirdly, it is necessary to integrate different aspects into the solution – for example technology, supply chain, customer, and stakeholder aspects.
