Synopsis: This unit examines the inter-relationships between technology and organisation structures, strategies and processes, and how technology produces change within organisations. Technology provides the basis for innovative products and services, and fundamentally changes industries, redefining the ways in which organisations operate. In the competitive international environment, with an ever increasing pressure to focus on consumer needs and to produce a wider diversity of products, the capture of technology and creativity provides a means for organisations to gain a competitive advantage. This requires an understanding of the processes of innovation and organisational change.
