Course content

Many valuable concepts and designs have been developed only to come to a halt during their implementation. After the previous module, where concepts will be thoroughly tested and developed, we will use this module to consider the insights that we have obtained in the project thus far with a particular emphasis on involvement and implementation. In this module, we will use systems-oriented design as a method to prepare a sound implementation of the project. This effort also involves understanding as much as possible about future obstacles and change management that is required to optimise the influence. The module also addresses visualisation.

Learning outcome
  • Insight into use of SOD methods & the rapid learning process to implement developed concepts
  • An ability for visualisation to communicate change and create room for involvement
  • Recognition of a link between innovation and implementation
  • A strong ability of students to implement their own projects
Working and learning activities

The module entails two seminars and a final presentation of students’ own concepts.

  • Seminar I – AHO in Oslo – Spring 2023: Theories/methods for benefit realisation and implementation
  • Seminar II – digital via Zoom – Spring 2023: Using systems-oriented design as a method to implement students’ own projects
Evaluation
  • Home exam on the presented theory (pass/fail)
  • Development of a plan/process for implementing the student’s own project (pass/fail)
Curriculum

An updated reading list will be available at the time of admission to the module.

Course content

This module will review the requirements that apply to both the master’s thesis and academic texts, including academic accounts, source criticism, discussions and the expected structure of the master’s thesis as an academic text. The students will work on a topic through specific examples and an outline to produce a project description for their master’s thesis. The module includes lectures on individual topics that have not been sufficiently elucidated, such as ‘Industry as Laboratory’.

Learning outcome
  • Ability to program, structure and start work on an academic thesis
  • Completion of project description for the master’s thesis
Working and learning activities

The module is comprised of two seminars and literature studies. Through the module, the students work on developing a topic, case and structure for the master’s thesis to culminate in a project description. They will receive supervision and engage in discussions with fellow students.

  • Seminar I: Lectures, presentations and discussions
  • Seminar II: Lectures, presentations and discussions
