LEADING INNOVATION AND CHANGE

 
COURSEWORK
MODULE TITLE: LEADING INNOVATION AND CHANGE
TITLE OF ASSESSMENT: THE INNOVATIVE ORGANISATION – PROBLEMS AND SOLUTIONS
 
Assessment is one piece of individual coursework. This is a 3500 word assignment but excluding Bibliography, cover content and tables. The assignment should be fully supported by appropriate references using the Harvard system.
 

Critically evaluate the claim that National Innovation Systems (NISs) are THE most important influence shaping and promoting innovation. Discuss with particular reference to a NIS of your choice.

 
Your assignment should be fully supported with references drawn from the recommended reading (the customised text is central here) and other sources. Avoid too descriptive an approach – the emphasis should be on analysis and argument.
