Module Overview
It is no secret that we live in a rapidly changing world. Technology, social relationships, connections, patterns of interaction – everything is in a state of flux, and both individuals and organizations feel pressures to improve their efficiency, effectiveness, and social utility. Increasingly, our systems become more complex than we understand, perhaps more complex than we ever can understand. Now as never before we need our innate human creativity to help us find new paths through the confusion toward a society that works better for all.
This module introduces you to the idea of innovation – that is, planned change for the better. Not all changes are indeed for the better, and one of our continual human challenges is to distinguish new ideas that will help us form new ideas that merely increase our danger and vulnerability. Now as never before, the highly interconnected and interdependent world we live in creates new demands and new requirements, with seemingly geometrically increasing pressures and geometrically decreasing time frames. Adapting to technological, social, and economic changes is not merely a full-time job – it’s one that leaves most of us behind. Like Lewis Carroll’s Red Queen, we are continually running faster and faster to stay in the same place.
Innovation has been a subject of research and analysis for a long time. Tradition would have it that “there is no new thing under the sun.” But we know that there are so many new things that keeping track of them is nigh impossible. The best we can do is try to understand, not each change in its own details, but the overall patterns of change that are reproducible and recurring.
As an academic field of study, innovation, both personal and organizational, has existed only since the mid-1960s, when Everett Rogers’ groundbreaking book Diffusion of Innovations first set out the general theories that now inform most of our analysis of the process. Before Dr. Rogers’ death in 2003, he had put his book through six new editions, each more complete and more thorough than the last. And yet each new decade seems to have opened up a new set of challenges for both the scholars and practitioners of innovation. In recent years, the enormous changes in information technology in particular have completely revolutionized the way business is done in the world, and continue to serve up new challenges and new possibilities for both individuals and organizations.
In this module, you will begin to explore the definition of innovation and the various meanings that it can take. You will also begin to think about human creativity and how the creative urge both shapes and is shaped by the demands of the complex organizations on which our society has become so dependent. Unless you are prepared to move into the mountains and live off the land, you must increasingly rely on organizations and networks of organizations to deliver the basic goods and services you need. We are now inevitably a society that depends on a continual flow of new ideas and new approaches to both repair the faults of previous ideas and hopefully give us a leg up on the next round of major social disruption.
In the case for this module, you will be considering a variety of innovations that will be affecting your lives in the near to far future, and assessing the degree to which individual and social creativity will be able to match the new demands imposed by an increasingly complex and unpredictable environment. In the project assignment, you will begin working on your literature review for your doctoral project, taking your introduction and beginning to identify the kinds of theoretical resources you will need to complete the project.
In this particular module, please start completing the SLP (Session Long Project) before the Case assignment.

Modules/Module1/Mod1Case.html
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:
Assignment-driven Criteria: Student demonstrates mastery covering all key elements of the assignment.
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.
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.
Citing Sources: Student demonstrates mastery applying APA formatting standards to both in-text citations and the reference list.
Professionalism and Timeliness: Assignments are submitted on time.

Module 1 – SLP
Technology, Innovation, and Creativity
The overall aim of the Session Long Project assignments in this course is to facilitate the further development of your DBA project, by developing the core of the literature review for your draft project. This will entail developing a structure for the material to be reviewed, identifying and accessing different kinds of source material, and organizing the material to support the aims of the project. At the end of this course, you are expected to have a working draft of chapter 2 of your DBA project that you can take into the next course, in which you develop a research methodology for the project.
It is important to stress that what you are developing here is only a draft. You are not bound by what you develop in this series of assignments; everything is subject to modification and improvement as you move toward the project itself. But it is important to take these assignments seriously, since they build toward a usable chapter. The more work you are able to put into your project during this course, the less you will be playing catch-up later on in the program, and the easier it will be to complete your project and obtain your degree.
During Module 1, you are expected to take the introduction to your project that you developed in your previous course, and annotate it to identify key areas in which literature will need to be searched and the other kinds of background information that you will need to develop in order to support your project.
Specifically, you are to:
Review your draft introduction that you developed previously. Using a copy of this introduction, develop an annotation for each paragraph in your introduction in which you identify various kinds of source material that might back up and justify the points made in the paragraph. Try to be as complete as you can. At this point, you do not need to describe specific sources; just the general kind of material you would like to search out in order to support your arguments.
It is possible that some paragraphs may not actually call for sources, if they are merely bridging text or are filler. In this case, you may simply note that this is a filler paragraph. There should not be very many of these if your draft is well prepared.
You may choose to use the “review” function in Microsoft Word to present your annotations, or you may choose some other form. In any event, be sure that your annotations are clearly set off from your draft introduction by making them in a different color from the original text. Here is an example taken from a proposal, showing the kinds of annotations that this assignment seeks from you:

When you have completed annotating each paragraph in your introduction, submit the annotated draft as your project assignment for this module.
SLP Assignment Expectations
Length: The written component of this assignment should be a copy of your draft introduction, however long that might be, with the required annotations either in the margin or in the text.
You may take the opportunity to revise and improve your introduction as you proceed.
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.
As you complete your assignment, 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.

Your assignment will be graded using the following criteria:
Assignment-driven Criteria: Student demonstrates mastery covering all key elements of the assignment.
