Teaching innovation management in Twente

Coming to Enschede is not really a joke.. flying to Amsterdam, two hours train from Schiphol… and then finding your way around the campus of Twente, somewhere in between the towns of Enshede and Hengelo. But then, when you get here, and you get possession of your bike things magically start to look much better.
Also this year I am helping my colleague Erwin Hofman with his innovation management class. Tonight we will talk about the innovation process arguing that.. yes maybe we can manage innovation. Tomorrow morning  (8.30am!!) students will present their work, commenting two great classics:
Von Hippel, Thomke and Sonnack (1999) Creating Breakthroughs at 3M & Brown (2004) Minding and Mining the Periphery.
