Overall impression

1. Content

What was your overall sense of the content of the course? Was the level of difficulty appropriate for your learning process? Has the course contributed to your concrete understanding and application of open innovation?

- Did the lectures cover the content appropriately?
- Did the assignments convey the content in a relevant way?
- Did the literature list facilitate your learning experience and was it aligned with the lectures and assignments?


- I think the level of difficulty was appropriate. However, I felt I lacked some content, especially in the lectures. Some kind of introduction to open platforms (well, this was answered in the lecture by Emilie Kuusk but this was first after we had have the hand-in related to platform). Neither was there any content related to this in the reading list (Särefjords master thesis did not explain it good enough) Regarding the pirate bay case lecture with Kristoffer Scholin, we had this exact same lecture during our first year. Repetition is good and Scholin is also very knowledgeable but it would have been more interesting to hear about some other relevant topic. »
- My general feedback is that the course, lectures and assignments covered the concept of open innovation and I found most of the assigments to be very stimulating. My largest critique is that I think that to much of assigments and lectures takes the perspective of a lawyer. The literature list was too long. There is a tradeoff between keeping it academic or practical and a very long readinglist is what I would call a "hit and miss" since the student will miss important reading in favor of less important reading. Most of the lectures were interesting and I would like to highlight the leadership and strategy part provided by Gregory as very good input alongside the "Open innovation" parts. What I would recommend for next year is even more focus on the creative parts in building platforms and how to create openness etc. I think this could be a substitute to writing a licenseagreement for the tech.mgmt students (although I recognize that it is good to know the building blocks of a license agreement and think that the negotiation was a good learning experience)»
- As usual the link between lecture assigment and reading is not linked in any clear way, it rather gives a wide view of certain areas in open innovation, although the content important was not in the reading list, rather added later in the course, such as two master thesises»
- I think that the content of the course was unclear. There was a lot of different parts that I didn"t see were connected to open innovation. The reading list was extensive and I had no chance of reading everything once all assignments started since the workload was heavy.»
- I am still unsure what the course was about.... so I have difficulties to decide if the lectures covered the content. My main feeling was that the lectures most often had nothing to do with the content in the assignments (with a few exceptions). The assignments were according to me mostly stressful and I did not learn very much. The focus was to be able to find information to write everywhere in order to have a slight chance to be able to hand in on time, there was no chance due to the timeframes to st down and actually dig into the subject, get an understanding and learn what we were supposed to. I have hardly had time to read a lot of the given litterature, the litterature was not very aligned and we had much more use of google and other articles and the time did not allow us to read both the relevant material we found our self and the one given in the reading list»
- Yes.Lectures were OK.»
- Assignments too focused on the legal side of things. »
- The content was appropriate to the subject, the lectures are well focused on the course plan and are all relevant. the literature related perfectly to the subject aswell.»

2. Work distribution

How well were the work processes distributed over the course? In previous years, the lab has focused more on a coherent simulation context with hand-ins and negotiations linked directly to that context, this year each theme had its own hand-ins, and the negotiations and hands-on events were more closely linked to the new Skills and Application module. Would you have preferred to have worked in different ways?


- My most important comment is relating to the choice of having major deadlines on Mondays (two weeks in a row). The ICM program had so far been very good in making sure the weekends were free. This is something I have really appreciated as a break from the studies during the weekends is something I see as necessary. Apart from this, I think the work load was appropriate. »
- Apart from the actual writing of a licenseagreement I felt that the division worked well.»
- CRAP, monday hand-ins destroyed my life! I have no motivation left after working myself to the bone in this course sitting up all night to get things done in time»
- The week 13-17 of Sept was very hectic since we had a large number of assignments at the same time, and initially not very good coordination between them. I think that it would have been better to have all assignments more closely linked to the open innovation theme, now I felt very splitted.»
- TIME! There are only 24 hours on a day and most of the class has been sitting many many nights far after midnight. I do not now, perhaps it is only me, but I do not learn anything in this way. Please structure the workload so that the lectures and reading are relevant for the assignment and give us enough head up for the hand ins for us to actually be able to learn and understand the issues and questions.... It was never clear to me which module that was what and it felt as the assignments and work distribution changed almost every time anyone spoke about it. Please assign a person that actually keeps tracks of all modules and that take active responsibility for the holistic picture BEFORE it is presented to us so that we have to question it before anything happens! If that is done in advance I think the module way could work out fine and be a good structure. As it was this year it was unfortunately not sufficient, especially not since the first weeks was like vacation and then everything came at once. »
- Yes»
- No, that was a good way to divide it. »
- the work distribution was appropriate although the programming could be improved»

3. Administrative structures

How well did the communication and administration of the course work?


- Except for late cancelations of lectures, I think the communication worked well with the exception being the inconsistency and misalignment between Gregory and Henrik when it came to deadlines/hand-ins. »
- There has to be ONE leader in the team of modulecheifs who can decide up or down when we don"t know or has questions and there was some confusion about the assignments. The good thing was that Henrik did a good job in sorting out the problems with the confusion about the assignments and Gregory gave good support in the preps. before the project assignment hand-in (which made the project assignment into a good learning experience)»
- No-one obviously knew what the other parts where doing, not something you created yourself, only lack of internal communication»
- Ok, but improvements could be made. Henrik did a good job of trying to coordinate everything and helped us a lot.»
- As usual, not very good. We got good replies to questions and when we raised complaints about unstructured administration and several messages about the same thing we did get better answers, but it should not need to go this way. It should be clear from the scratch. I got the feeling the student got the information about the course, but the teachers had different agendas and thought, which made the administration and communication rather complicated. »
- Communication was not upto the mark.Lot of time was wasted due to miscommunication.»
- Last minute communications and late schedule changes were disturbing. »
- The use of the platform is well but i would like to have other technologies integrated to the platform such as e-mail updates or perhaps an interactive calendar.»

4. Other

Other input on the overall course, as well as overall changes you would suggest for the future development of the Open Innovation Lab.


- I would have liked to have a lecture on the construction of an open platform or at least learn some kind of tools/methods for dealing with platforms. Maybe a hand-in related to this as well? »
- ONE PERSON HOLDING ALL HAND-INS! so we dont get crazy peaks in workload.»
- I think that the overall impression of the course was a bit messy, with a lot of different parts that did not really fit into the open innovation course. All modules were very interesting, but I would appreciate if the Skills and application module could be more focused in the beginning/end of the course, and that the preparation for the AICM would be in the AICM course instead.»
- Go through the holistic perspective of the course and structure up the workload. It should not require to skip lectures in order to even have a chance to hand in on time. Secondly, look through the subject covered and give us more theory in the actual subject. I can feel that I have learnt anything at all and for sure nothing about open innovation....»
- Assignments could be more specific.»
- none»

Specific modules

For 2010, the Open Innovation Lab was divided into three parallel modules –, the skills and application module, the thematic module, and the project module. This structure is new for this year and we would therefore appreciate your input on how well you think this approach facilitated your learning processes, how well managed it was, and what changes you would suggest for the further development of the lab.

5. Skills and application module

The skills and application module was intended to allow you to apply real, practical skills to innovation and group work, and to lay a foundation for the practical work you will continue in Applied ICM.

- Very good, keep as it is.»
- Very good, only negative feedback is that the assignment descriptions are a bit too informal (it works but the number of misunderstandings can be reduced by formal hand-outs) and I don"t see the learning in writing agreements since I feel that there are other thing that could be emphasized for the Tech.mgmt students.»
- Fun and relevant in many ways, but stressful because it was hand-ins at the same time as the rest of the course»
- I think this part was very interesting and good for both self-development and team development. However, I would prefer having this section separate, as one week where we only focus on team development so that we would have time to engage even more in the workshops and team exercises.»
- Perhaps a little bit to much, but a very good intention and appreciated this module a lot! Still, perhaps it got a little bit too many steps in the end and I think you could easily make this module a little bit smaller.»
- Yes,that was helpful specially negotiation.»
- several skills were acquired during the course. as well as the identification of potential individual strengths and weaknesses.»

6. Thematic module

The thematic module, while somewhat revised from previous years, was built on three major themes relating to and explaining open innovation: building the Open Society on private and public structures for sharing information and building the public domain, creating and managing Open Platforms for joint development and market design, and Open Science for fostering innovation and utilization of research results in the public-private interface.

- In general, good lectures. However, I would have had preferred some other kind of deliverable for the hand-ins than all those word documents. I think presentations/ a slide deck is a much more effective way of show what you have learnt. »
- A somewhat lawyerly perspective but otherwise very good.»
- more clear distinction between the three areas is needed»
- Good and interesting content, but I feel that the open innovation content took very little space in the open innovation course, which I think is unfortunate. I did not feel that I had time learning as much as I wanted about open innovation.»
- I hardly know what was actually included in this module so I have difficulties to give feedback. I miss, as in so many other ICM courses, a read tread where the lectures build on each others and has a message. The lectures with Nokia and ericsson here however really good and appriciated, please add more lectures as these one (internally or externally, but concise and clear lectures about a relevant subject for the course!)»
- the most useful module in my opinion with the relationship with the open society that is the trend that the world is tending to.»

7. Project module

This module aimed to introduce you to concrete project management and real-life market assessment, as the early first step in preparing for the Applied ICM lab.

- Interesting module. Maybe add one consultation event?»
- Suffered from the fact that the lack of information left us with a too open ended question BUT the strategy workshops really enhanced the learning. The intention of a competition was good but the learning fell short due to lack of case input.»
- too much googling and too little content.»
- The assignment overall was very good, but I would have wished to get the information from Andrew that we would not get any more information from the researchers, not we instead became irritated of lack of communication.»
- To short. It was introduced very late and it felt as this module unfortunately did not really work out as intended. We were left with googling and new real data or interview were possible, which turned this lecture into a google week. We have had too man of these already... The feedback we got were in the end only based on ppt-knowledge and had nothing to do with the fact if you answered the questions or had relevant information for the audience.... If this was the intention, please next year be clear about that this assignment is only about creating a ppt in a good way. (of course you always has to be clear in communication, but if that is the only purpose, give us another type of assignment!!)»
- This helped up in getting background info. of the AICM projects.»
- This project was really useful and had opportunity to apply this knowledge in the real life working at distance with a company in stockholm.»

Specific lectures

It is also useful for us if you can provide feedback on specific lectures, whether in terms of content, administration or other aspects. This helps us learn which lectures to include, which lecture formats are most appreciated, and allows us to communicate results to out external lecturers, who are almost always interested in hearing how their lecture went. Try to comment on as many lectures as you can.

Seminar, The Pirate Bay case

- Repetition from last year. Exactly the same lecture.»
- Same as previous year»
- Did not attend - summer internship»
- Really good, but it was very embarrising for both us and kristoffer when he realized that he had had the exact same lecture for us already before. PLEASE make sure you know what we have done in the past! Repetition is good, but not in this setting. It would have been interest to know about other aspects and development of the case, but then kristoffer needs to know that that is the topic of the day in advance!!»
- Much information was already covered in the lecture we had with Schollin a year ago. »

- Very good and fun assignment»

24. 23/09, 13-16 Gregory Carson

Strategy / Negotiation

- Good!»

25. 27/09, 09-12 Andrew Telles

Project Module (regenerative medicine) workshop

- fun, but focused too much on making nice presentations for sahlgrenska and nothing about the actual problems and content»
- I think the workshop was good, but I had expected a bit more feedback on the content and not only the structure of the presentations.»
- To short, to undeveloped structure and meaningless workshop if the contest was about regenerative medicine. If the workshop had as intention to teach us ppt, then it was very good but very poorly communicated. No need to be so harch in class when it was so unclear what the intention about the lecture was about, even though I like a teacher that dares to point out mistakes and errors that can be corrected.»
- seemed a loss of time to develop a subject only for a first approach on something that would not be carried on.»
