- I feel that I"ve learnt a lot during the course BUT I feel that I didn"t know enough in the beginning. Therefore, I would have appreciated more feedback on my performance during the course for example it could have been useful to get individual feedback on at least 1 assignment before the take-home exam so that I"d know if I "have it right" or if I"m completely misinterpreting things.» (OK)
- Slides of the lectures are often not very clear» (OK)
- Unstructured slides which made it hard to follow. Interesting topic though.» (OK)
- It was sometimes difficult to follow the slides during lectures» (OK)
- The answer on the pace of the course is related to the other course as well. » (OK)
- Although naturally difficult due to the spread of the subject, I would have appreciated more clear "take-aways" from each lecture.» (OK)
- Slides need to be improved» (OK)
- Sometimes hard to follow, rapid introduction of many concepts and the messy slides makes it hard to see which concepts they relate to at times. » (OK)
- Some » (OK)
- could benefit from better structure» (OK)
- I liked the course, but the home exam was border line on too extensive.» (OK)
- I find it relatively strange to only have alternatives that indicates that the course is difficult and not difficult at all in question 7. I would argue that this way of asking creates bias in the results. » (OK)
- Not that inspiring. they could be a lot better and specially the power points. i think a closer connection to the articles would have made it easier to follow. » (OK)
- Good slides for selfstudy and a bit too long lectures still made it attractive to skip a few lectures.» (Good)
- Economics of innovation is a very broad topic, and I think the course managed to cover most of the relevant issues.» (Good)
- I´,d like if the lecturers connected to the bigger picture more often. Where a particular concept fits it. Especially as the bigger picture, frankly, is quite big.» (Good)
- But to be honest I think it was too much patronizing going on. We are masters students and we understand that we have to study hard and read papers and that courses are hard at times. All this nagging about how hard this course is and how much we need to study and how hard the exam would be had the opposite effect on me. I would have been more motivated if I did not hear this every lecture. » (Good)
- Objectively, I think they was very good, though I think it was hard to understand much, but that is more because of my individual effort to prepare for lectures than that the lectures was bad.» (Good)
- The quality was good, however sometimes I think the focus was kind of lost and it was difficult to grasp the essential meaning of the lecture.» (Good)
- I beleive that I would have learned even more if the pace would have been a bit slower. » (Good)
- It was good that most lectures started with repetition of old topics, it helps to connect the concepts. However it took a bit too long sometimes. I think we could have had more exercises like the one on second lecture to have us talk through things, it helps with reflection as well as gives variety to the lecture itself.» (Good)
- Magnus is interested in the subject, and I think it shows in the way i present his lectures» (Good)
- I find Magnus to be very pedagogic. He had a very compelling way of teaching. » (Very good)

- the market signals were explained in a good way.»
- The exercise was according to me too long and complicated for a meesage that was very simple: signals can be on different levels and between different actors - perhaps a little wasted time?»
- good»
- Signalling could have been covered in one lecture, the model she tried to apply to concepts seemed far-fetched and she gave a nervous impression. »
- She is a good lecturer, managed to connect nicely with the audience.»
- 7/10»
- Really interesting materials. good slides as well. sara just needs to be a little more energetic at stage»
- Okey»
- slightly irrelevant given previous lectures»
- Sounds a little bit too academic, thus not so easy to follow. Loved the use of TED talk! Could have debriefed it better though.»

- no comments»
- A good summary of signaling, which was useful for the exam.»
- it was ok, a bit too easy and similar to the other course. »

12. How much did you learn from


- The home exam helps relating the material in a framework.»
- The home exam made me put theories together and analyze. The same with the project. Because of lack of time, and because it didn"t matter for the grade, the literatur reflections became less important for me.»
- A bit unclear formulated. Takes > 30 mins to understand what is asked for»
- Information overflow! Did not have time to understand half of it good enough. And yes, I did study way more than 40h per week, and I usually have NO problem with coping with the workload in courses. »
- I had some time problems connected to the MDP course.»
- Regarding the exam, I"d prefer maybe just 2 questions so that you could get more depth into the analysis. As it felt now, the answers might have been to trivial due to time-constraints.»
- Slides as a way of answering question is, well, questionable»
- The feedback on the presentation was much appreciated. »
- I simply didn"t have time to spend time on the literature reflections, even if I had wanted to.»
- i think the learning could have been improved from the take home exam by collaboration. I felt that it was short time that you did have time to go back and rethink. If the exam would have been written in pair, i would have learned a lot more»

13. How difficult was


- Since I haven"t gotten any feedback it is hard to say, perhaps it was all really difficult but I just didn"t understand it... Q2, however, I felt was really strange because 2 of the economists weren"t mentioned enough during the course.»
- I think it has been a very good and manageable lever overall.»
- Very hard questions on the take-home exam, which results in much headache, much reading and much learning.»
- I think the level of the exam was too high»
- I knew before that the questions would be hard but I think they needed a week without another take-home exam going on.»
- Relativly difficult exam-questions, which where made even more difficult by the time-contraints. Perhaps reduce the amount of text one could have on each question to make you focus more on the key important topics.»
- Superb take home exam, I think I learned more from this than anything else in the course. Forced you to think hard and long about everything in the course. »
- It was rather difficult to find good theory for question 2. It seemed like most of it was part of the lecture slides, which does not suffice in order to fully understand the concepts and be able to use them freely.»
- Why say that the content does not matter in both the literature seminar and the project!? Once again alternatives leading to biased answers»

14. Too little attention was paid to?

- the course book by swann. The beinhocker book. Theory in general, things like pricing would have been interesting to go deeper into.»
- The evolutionary aspects, but also the more economical macro perspectives. »
- Young and Menger apparently. »
- During the lecture and with in the papers Menger is hardly discussed. To be able to answer question 2 sufficient I had to browse the internet. »
- the literature, more discussions and seminars maybe.»
- Referring back to the bigger picture. »
- Reality check on the workload. »
- the readings of scientific papers»
- Restless capitalism»
- Institutions, markets»
- Coherence and clearness in the slides»
- In-depth explanations of the main concepts.»
- I think perhaps the macro perspective received too little attention.»
- Value capture»
- Nothing»
- the different perspectives on economic progress perhaps?»
- Red thread of slides (I am thinking mainly that the numbering is a little inconsistent and that some form of outline could be added to clarfiy the structure since they are aimed as self-study material too). Too little attention was paid to beinhocker as well I argue.»
- magnus slides structure and content»
- Discussing the articles in class, it would have been nice.»
- cant say, a lot of interesting areas. competition.»
- Young, Menger and Jacobs contributions, as you based an entire question on them and their work.»
- structuring the concepts (more than the overview slide)»
- N/A»
- I think we could have focused more on user influences on the economic progress as it"s very interesting. Also the levels of analysis - it seemed so easy when they were clearly distinguished in lectures, but very difficult to do in practice.»
- See my recommendations for the future»

15. Too much attention was paid to?

- concrete examples of industries, clear understanding of concepts would be more important for being able to apply what is learned in the course»
- Signals»
- signals and conspicuous consumption! »
- The micro-level. I"d like a focus on more globally implications.»
- Trying to make us understand that the course is difficult and work intensive. »
- lecturing»
- Signals - could have been enough with 2 lectures instead of 3»
- Signals»
- Papers in general»
- Lecture time wasted on talking about the exam beforehand.»
- There was a lot about signaling, which is probably relevant, but it"s not one of the harder concepts to grasp.»
- Institutions»
- Nothing»
- Describing how difficult the course is, we get it! It is not necessary to have the first hour of the lecture consist of that. »
- SIGNALS - too many lectures on something so "obvious" and not very giving...»
- Exercises during lectures.»
- Signals»
- The Managing Development Projects course, it stole a lot of time from EoI.»
- The part in the beginning of the course when Magnus repeatedly mention how much there was to read.»
- perhaps schumpeter. and evolutionary economic, even thou it was interesting »
- Institutions, hate them!»
- Signals»
- Signaling theory. It was fairly easy to comprehend, but had several lectures mainly focusing on it. »
- How difficult the course is considered to be»
- Nothing.»
- tell people that all neoclassical models are just b...... I think it would be more relevant and trustworthy if it was more of a discussion why it is difficult to use in some aspects, but also highlight some useful things with the models. »

16. From your perspective, what was the most relevant or important part of the course?

- Learning to synthezise and connect theoretical frameworks»
- To understand how the "world" is connected in terms of growth and eco progress»
- getting the different aspects on what the market drivers are»
- The role of institutions. I had never thought about that before.»
- the project, to understand the meaning of the literature»
- Connect evolutionary theories with economics.»
- Getting a overview of the field of Economics of Innovation. »
- Understanding what innovation is and which concepts are related to it.»
- home exam, had to read papers. book »
- Competition and economic progress»
- Hard to say, maybe the home exam, since it is there you have to make all the relations of concepts from the course by yourself and to do that properly you need to read and understand the literature of the course.»
- Innovation and competitive process.»
- I don"t know»
- Concepts: value creation, appropriation, competetive process and patterns of innovation. Actitivties: 2nd hand-in»
- I think and hope that it was a good introduction to the MEI program since it has such a wide scope. It gives a good overall picture.»
- I think the project as well as the examn was very helpful for me to learn.»
- Value capture, value streams, how to retain your competitiveness »
- The Project.»
- The home exam.»
- Relating concepts and views. »
- different perspectives on economic growth, innovation, specialization etc...»
- Economic progress.»
- not ceratain»
- All of it, really covered a lot of topics that were all relevant.»
- I really like the feedbacks on how you present a work. That give me some useful advices.»
- I really like the feedbacks on how you present a work. That give me useful advices.»
- Discussions about different views of different authors on the topics covered.»
- To beginning to grasp the concept of an economy with so much evolutionary influence »
- The role of innovation, presentation project because nobody never told me if my oral presentation it was good or bad. So I appreciate the professor"s feedback. I believe , i"m going to improve a lot. »
- the different ways to se market interaction, innovation and signaling »
- The whole picture, connecting theories. »
- Answering the question "why are we richer today?"»
- Restless Capitalism»
- Everything seemed very relevant, probably because the concepts were well connected to each other. It was a good approach to build up the topics towards restless capitalism.»
- The variety and overall understanding of economics of innovation»
- The home exam, it made me draw parallells between concept and create a better understanding, at least it feels like it»
- To me personally, to A) Get an overview of some important concepts and influential key figures in the economics of innovation field B) provide research of human behavior, needs and wants, and introducing, explaining and provide research on signaling C) Some important aspects here and there which I believe I will have use for in my potential, future, role as developing businesses.»

17. What other recommendations would you make for the future?

- more handins, a "dugga" on key concepts and less points on the home exam»
- cut something from signals, make it more general. and go further to some macro-part»
- not planning anything for the week of the home exam because it will be hell and you wont have a life during the home exam week»
- Less reading. Even though we were warned in the beginning, it is just too much to combine with MDP. The workload of the courses do not match too good.»
- literature seminars»
- Keep the beinhocker-book!»
- Select fewer articles so that there is time to read them through and understand them. »
- Some shorter but more frequent hand ins in the learning period. Synchronizing workload with MDP.»
- more hand ins on papers, as in other course. Small ones, but just looking at the papers gives ingo»
- Literature seminarswith preparatory hand-ins to enhance learning. »
- Put more focus on the pre-readings, maybe give some more incentives to reading in advance. Though it was hard to keep up because of the heavy workload of all pre-readings of the other course, MDP. It would be good if the pre-readings were more evenly distributed between the two courses so that you are more prepared for the home exam.»
- have more(at least one) mandatory hand-in that actually is properly evaluated. Should be reflection and summarize of one article for each key-concept in advance of lecture(e.g. read, summarize and reflect on Lepak et al. in advance of the first lecture that touches this topic)»
- None»
- Maybe reduce the course load in terms of articles, amount to write on home-exam. Rather, raise the demand on quality.»
- It would be very good if the slides were updated. They could be shortened a bit (around 50/lecture) and be more well organized.»
- The lecture slides is sometimes difficult to follow.»
- ..»
- Don"t make the literature reflections sound unimportant.»
- Get more feedback on the content of the projects. The feedback from Sara seemed very general and copy-pasted.»
- Perhaps remove some of the articles (e.g. the one on powerpoint slides which is quite outdated and the extra ones from the economist). These just make the workload look horrible and means less focus on articles that really are important. Maybe make a lecture on Beinhocker and reading the book voluntary (I read it but many focused on more relevant reading)»
- structure your slides magnus»
- Lectures more structured according to concepts»
- Weekly literature reflections that need to be handed in and discussion about the articles.»
- Fight Jan for time!! We need to have more handins(signals one week, institutions the next or combinations), but we cannot cope with a higher workload. ask him to remove preps for design thinking and reduce the project so that this exam have full time. I am sad that i did not have more time to dig in to different aspects. »
- Focus on content feedback for presentation»
- Maybe more time for the home exam, it take time to understand the questions, do research, find connections and then present it in a proper way»
- Provide more examples of previous years presentations and answers to the home exam. In my opinion (and I believe this might be a shared view with at least Magnus Holmén) this is not cheating, but rather can make the learning much more effective. Human are great at imitating and copying, and most stuff accomplished is imitating and copying, thus this should be utilized. Use the same deadline times as the MDP course (12.00 instead of 10.00 for hand-ins - maybe standardize through-out Chalmers?). Quite unfortunately, I learned the most from experiencing the high tempo and the width of the material during this study period, and what I will take with me will be to properly plan for how I can achieve my goals better. Basically, I"d like to optimize and become much more effecient in my studying, and thus be able to focus upon what I believe to be more important parts (i.e. spend less time grasping all the concepts and material and more time upon discussing and thinking about them). One concrete suggestion on how situations like this can be avoided is by having a lecture dedicated towards educating us students in how we best can approach the course and learn fastests. For example, I learned about a list of summaries of all the articles about the time the exam started (and I stupidly enough didn"t use it enough while I had the chance). I believe it would be fairly trivial to come up with some concrete suggestions on how one can be more effective in studying. Here are some I have identified as having potential: - Divide and conquer / utilize specialization / division of labor. Gather in groups and split up the course material and process it separately. - An example would be that one would do chapter 1-4 in Beinhocker, one would do all articles related to signaling, etcetera. - For optimal effect, I believe each article/chapter can be summarized in two ways which I would have had great use for: -- Summary in written form (utilized for understanding) -- A bullet point list summary where the bullet points would consist of purely copied sentences/paragraphs (utilized for effective writing of the home-exam) - After summaries have been written, the group could gather and go through each article and concept and discuss them. - This can be furthered - potentially this could lead to a lot of time saving which could be used to gather in groups and discuss different concepts and links even more. Perhaps based on... - Practice on previous exams / example questions for the exam - Another potentially highly relevant task would be to, based upon the summaries above, create a figure (or rather enhance the overview figure Magnus presented in the beginning and end) and create links between the different concepts and authors - Further, the bullet point lists of purely copied sentences/paragraphs could be restructured (in a new document) by concept and topic. (utilized for home exam and as a learning exercise) - Speed-reading / overview reading -- Positive side: It"s quick -- Negative side: Little time to process what you are reading while reading. -- Use the proper method depending on the purpose of your reading - Memory techniques (perhaps less applicable to this course since there is no "normal" written exam. -- Memory palace / Loci -- Story telling -- Lists -- Networks -- Utilizing imagination and senses: picturing (works especially well for me), smelling, hearing, touching & tasting -- Extremify - One area I don"t know how to prevent is how one can better learn in advance how to better separate between describing concepts and relating them (a issue I had during the home-exam) and limit the number of concepts used. Perhaps it should be stated early that the maximum number of concepts are X, but most likely you"ll have a better discussion (which I suppose is a greater goal) if you limit yourself to (for example) X/2 number of main/key concepts (and as have been clearly communicated, then you can go more into depth instead).»
- Literature reflections more often, but not on all articles to "force"/encourage students to keep up with reading.»

Specific questions on the course

18. I learnt


- I wish I would have learnt more, but I guess from my starting point I have come a long way.»
- Good overview-course.»
- high workload in MDP course resulted in poor readings in this course unfortunately :/»
- To relate different levels of the economy is difficult. I need more tips and tricks on how to do it. This can be done early in the course.»
- Not sure what "relate different levels in the economy" refers to. So maybe I didn"t learn that well enough, or maybe I"m just a random exception.»
- I think it would foolish to believe I fully understand everything, thus the "I fully agree" option seems quite unuseful.»

- I enjoyed the analysis/examples late in the course of why/how e.g. Sweden turned prosperous. Perhaps using more of these type of examples can make the course concepts more relatable.»

- It"s a tough start with all the concepts and papers, but "the best way to teach a baby to swim is to throw it into the pool."» (I fully agree)

- I wish I had the chance to start to study some time this summer, before the semester started. I didn"t manage to read but a part of the articles and books.» (I fully agree)
- dont you think like that in every course?» (I fully agree)
- But for me it was not possible,becuase I was exchange students, without house in that period. Thus in the first week, I spent a lot of time to find accomodation in Goteborg.» (I fully agree)
- High workloads in the courses combined. Consider providing (optional) material/lecture on how to "read properly" as suggested at lectures.» (I fully agree)
- But that other course takes to much efforts. because of all of its deadlines(every w) and a 40 % valuable report in the mid of course. EoI needs the same to stay focused to the same level.» (I agree)
- As said before I had some time issues.» (I agree)
- But as explained earlier, the MDP course really took much time due to many compulsory hand-ins» (I agree)
- But it was difficult to start earlier since we had to study for the exam in the other course the first two weeks.» (I agree)
- I was actually on schedule in the course until the last 2 weeks when some issues in the MDP course took up all of my time. That was unfortunate.» (I agree)
- as always» (I agree)
- but the first two weeks were intense studying for the MDP basics test - no time at all for EOI. then a very demanding research project in the MDP course was started + all the compulsory handins and workshop reflections, together with the project in this course => no time for articles for me.....» (I agree)
- but i started early, read 10 articles and then it was no time anymore. had to skip lectures to do project work of MDP.» (I agree)
- It is obious it would be better, but on the other han there is time constraints. We hade a project work in this course but also in another...» (I agree)
- No time due to workload in other courses, master thesis preperations etc. » (I agree some, but not much)
- I started early to read quite.» (I agree some, but not much)
- I actually felt that I got a better understanding by not starting too early. For me, I think it was better to go the some lectures first and have a background and context when I actually read the articles. Except, not having time to read Beinhocker, I really don"t think it was that many articles. I haven"t read everything word for word but I don"t think that"s the point either. However, the classification of the papers really helped. » (I agree some, but not much)
- Well, there wasn"t really time for student syndrome this study period. MDP course took so much time, thus leaving less time for working on this course. I managed to mostly keep up with the reading, couldn"t have done it earlier or faster. It was difficult to comprehend the texts at first, but they were quite sense-making when reading them again while writing exam.» (I agree some, but not much)
- Actually, I believe it was rather a lack of proper methods that made it difficult study effective, which had the effect that I never was in phase with the tempo. As a consequence, it became "harder" and less motivated to keep studying and keeping up the tempo.» (I agree some, but not much)
- Learnt my lessons from earlier IE courses.» (I disagree)
- I did that but still, it was really hard to keep up the pace and have a life in parallel..» (I disagree)
- I started reading early but still had no time to read it all. » (I disagree)
- It started early but it was impossible to hav etime to read i t all anyways!» (I totally disagree)
- Impossible to start earlier than the first week.» (I totally disagree)
- I wish it was possible for me to do so, but it was not, given the high pressure and various assignments throughout both courses (especially the early PM basics exam in the other course).» (I totally disagree)

Specific questions on the course material

23. How much did you learn from


- good literature»
- Some of the slides was hard to understand if you haven"t been attending parts of the lectures.»
- Excellent, and maybe brave (?) choice of course material!»
- However the slides were presented in a way that you had to be preset in the lectures in order to fully understand them. »
- Beinhocker is a nice book. Maybe pay more explicit attention to it during lectures?»
- The slides could benefit from being updated! Also it would be good to relate to Beinhocker more in the lectures, or give some more explanation to the book in relation to the course.»
- the slides have an extremely poor structure. during the lecture magnus skips 20% of them because he either can"t remember why they even are there - or for some other reason... when missing a lecture and trying to figure out which slides are important => it gets impossible... my main criticism (only criticism?) against this course is the extremely messy slides by Holmen + many old slides that apparently are irellevant...»
- Articles main source of learning.»
- I didn"t feel like Swann"s book was a very great investment. It defines the basics, which is good, however the same info came also from articles and course handouts.»
- Unfortunately, I did not have time to read the Swann and Beinhocker books (I focused on the articles instead)»

24. How difficult was


- very good literature for understanding, no acedemic "bullshit" reasoning.»
- It is hard to read Beinhocker if you do not read the whole book. His headlines are a bit tricky to understand. »
- Slides were not always clear»
- Slide hand-outs unstructured --> Difficulty to follow train of thought»
- poor slides, hard to understand when Magnus is not explaining them. impossible to study from afterwards - too poor structure»
- Slides were difficult not by nature but because the structure tended to be a little messy at places.»
- Slides contain a lot of relevant info, however, they are messy »
- Slides often a bit chaotic»
- Didn"t read Beinhocker»
- I didn"t read the books, except the parts that were relevant to mandatory assignments. As for the slide handouts, they"re always hard to interpret and understand unless explained verbally by the lecturer.»

- The papers were hard to read because of the language but because there were so many of them and I was not used to reading articles of that kind.» (I agree some, but not much)

- It was very challenging since we haven"t had take home exams earlier. It would therefore be good if the week could be dedicated to this exam and not overlap with the MDP course. As it was now, the MDP exam took quite some time from this exam. The last lecture before the exam was also very helpful in clarifying what would otherwise be a confusing task.» (I totally disagree)

- It was difficult nut not very difficult. I suppose that I have to wait for the marking to really say how difficult it was though...» (I disagree)
- As long as it"s okay to choose a path oneself which is reasonable (and it won"t affect the grading that it"s not necessarily the one preferred by Magnus). I believe it would have been fairly easy if proper preparations had been done. The time was a little bit on the low side (but on the other hand, that might be good since it"s supposed to be some pressure in order to be a good foundation for grading).» (I agree some, but not much)

Other comments

37. Additional comments or suggestions

- highlight the glossary better during your lectures. its really helpful. did realize that 5-6 w after the start.»
- Putting in about 70 h/w divided on two courses, from the first week, I feel should have been enough but I still did not manage to read and reflect on everything as I would have wished. »
- Thank you for an overall good course!»
- It would have been nice to read all the papers but I think it is nearly impossible to read the number of pages in scientific english in one week + books.»
- Maybe you can come to an agreement with Jan on the workload of the courses so that the pre-readings become a little more evenly distributed, with compulsory hand-ins in this course as well. Thank you for a great course!»
- All in all a very good course which I hope and believe I will benefit from in the following courses. However, everything is still kind of vague. And there should definitely be mandatory "pre-readings" as in MDP instead of literate review that nobody actually cares about since it isnt evaluated etc.»
- None»
- Nice course in general.»
- It was good to have a powerpoint project as I need to work on my powerpoint skills!»
- Very good course»
- cheers magnus, you did a good job again. make sure that you fix your utterly unstructured slides and this will be a great introduction for next years MEI students as well :)»
- I really feel that this study period has the risk of destroying motivation of many students. This is unfortunate because both courses are really interesting (in my own opinion, particularly this one). However, when there are a multitude of tasks every week and the teachers explicitly state that we do not need to put much energy into some (this course a little, e.g. reflections, but other course a lot) - it does not really give us time to learn and many are not so motivated. The best example is feedback from the other course halfway into the exam of this course. Mainly, some simple alignment between the two courses on when and how workload is distributed to make sure all tasks are able to be done thoroughly would increase my motivation and, I argue, the motivation of others as well. This said, I learned a lot so I do not want to seem overly critical. I enjoyes many aspects of both courses.»
- Very interesting course, I am going to try and catch up on reading the articles the first chance I get :)»
- I"d like the course content and the structure. Maybe in some lectures, it can be useful to have a guest from a company who talks about their process in innovation.»
- Reading thru the slides on the exam made me realice the excellence of describing these complicated matters. And all that jazz =)»
- Just one thing - i think it was overemphasized that exam is going to be so difficult. It is of course good to warn people that it"s not going to be easy and we better learn from the beginning, but this time it was too much. While thinking and writing I got sort of paralyzed for a while, not seeing anything as being good enough, relevant etc. This might have had to do with this constant voice hammering behind my head that it is so difficult.»
- Thank"s for an interesting course! »
- Great course, very well executed! My suggestion were really minor. Definitely among the best courses I"ve taken.»

Thank you for your time.
