In the advent of disruptive and agile innovation, artificial intelligence, and autonomous systems, students in the Organizational Design and Innovation specialization will explore the changes in organizational innovation agility. Leaders in service or product development, whether newcomer or incumbent, need to employ strategies to deal with the reality of disruptive forces that are changing what was a quasi-stable environment to one in which uncertainty rules, and the need to lead by design and design thinking is paramount.

  1. Analyze the consequences of innovative and disruptive forces on society.
  2. Analyze ethical considerations related to implementation of artificial intelligence, management agility, and ambidexterity.
