Module 1 – Case

Technology, Innovation, and Creativity

Assignment Overview

In the readings for this module, you will find both discussions of the social processes of technological and social innovation as well as suggestions about where technologies may be going. Obviously, we can only touch on a few of the creative and innovative developments taking place around us. This assignment calls for you to further investigate specific kinds of innovations that are currently under development, and think about how they will affect both using and non-using organizations and society generally down the road.

You can start with the background reading for suggestions about technologies to research, but you should also plan on doing searches using terms such as “emerging new creative technologies” or variants on that theme to identify new things you may not necessarily be aware of. Spread your search net broadly, and you will find a variety of interesting new developments to discuss.

Case Assignment

Prepare a 5- to 7-page paper in accordance with the following Assignment Expectations, on the topic:
“Emerging new creative technologies and what they will require organizations to do differently.”

Discuss at least three specific new technological developments that you know about personally or can research using the Internet. Describe them in some detail and provide references to them. Think about what they will require of their users that is not being done now, and how organizations might have to change to incorporate them. Estimate their long-term effects and what further developments they might stimulate. Conclude with a couple of paragraphs summarizing your conclusions across all the cases you have discussed.

Case Assignment Expectations

Length: The written component of this assignment should be 5-7 pages long (double-spaced) without counting the cover page and reference page.

Organization: Subheadings should be used to organize your paper according to the questions.

Grammar and Spelling: While no points are deducted for minor errors, assignments are expected to adhere to standard guidelines of grammar, spelling, punctuation, and sentence syntax. Points may be deducted if grammar and spelling impact clarity. We encourage you to use tools such as grammarly.com and proofread your paper before submission.

When you write your paper, make sure you do the following:

  • Answer the assignment questions directly.
  • Stay focused on the precise assignment questions. Do not go off on tangents or devote a lot of space to summarizing general background materials.
  • Use evidence from your readings to justify your conclusions.
  • Cite at least five credible resources.
  • Reference your sources of information with both a bibliography and in-text citations. See the Student Guide to Writing a High-Quality Academic Paper, including pages 11-14 on in-text citations. Another resource is the “Writing Style Guide,” which is found under “My Resources” in the TLC Portal.

Your assignment will be graded using the following criteria:

  1. Assignment-driven Criteria: Student demonstrates mastery covering all key elements of the assignment.
  2. Critical Thinking/Application to Professional Practice: Student demonstrates mastery conceptualizing the problem, and analyzing information. Conclusions are logically presented and applied to professional practice in an exceptional manner.
  3. Business Writing and Quality of References: Student demonstrates mastery and proficiency in written communication and use of appropriate and relevant literature at the doctoral level.
  4. Citing Sources: Student demonstrates mastery applying APA formatting standards to both in-text citations and the reference list.

IMPORTANT NOTE: This assignment is about innovation and change in Organizations! Do not make the mistake about discussing innovation from a consumer standpoint. Think about how organizations must respond to innovations. Here is the exact assignment topic: Prepare a paper on “Emerging new creative technologies and what they will require organizations to do differently.”

In order to make this useful to you as you work on your DSP, you may discuss the organization that is the target of your project. This is not required, but it is suggested so that you can get maximum gain from this assignment. If you don’t you use your target organization, you may discuss other organizations specifically or organizations in general. However, I suggest that you provide some real examples.

To help stimulate your thinking about organizations, here are some areas to consider in which organizations operate and may require change from innovations:

Marketing and Selling – interface with the customer – R&D

Operations – Teams, Communicate, Project Mgt., Mfg. Process,

Logistics – transportation, storage,

IT – Data, Analysis, Communications, Documents

HR – Hiring, Training, Managing Benefits, Payroll

Financial – Accounting, Cost Management, Corp Investments – Mergers

Strat Planning – Industry scanning, SWOT, Competitive Analysis, Visioning

One final suggestion: here is a website to review: Daniel Burrus and the Anticipatory Organization: www.burrus.com Burrus is an expert in the field of technology innovation and author of several books and articles.

Let me know if you have any questions. –Dr. E.
