Advanced Strategy and Organization in Technology Markets
The course provides answers to the question of how firms create and sustain a competitive advantage and has a special emphasis on microfoundations. While the first part of the lecture mainly deals with firm-level phenomena, the second part of the lecture and the case studies link individual behavior to firm-level performance. In the course, I combine theoretical concepts, from the resource-based view over transactive memory system to social network theory, with real-life examples in the form of case studies.
The course divides into a lecture and a subsequent tutorial. Both parts are required to successfully pass the exam. The exam is comprised by 60 minutes questions on the lecture and 60 minutes case study.
