Starting from today, Johan Wenngren can title himself Licentiate in Engineering in Functional Product Development since he has presented and discussed his licentiate thesis. The title of the thesis is: Teambased Innovation – early problem setting activities in engineering design.
Johan is part of the research project ProViking THINK (Teams for Heterogeneous Innovation Knowledge)and he describes different innovation processes in his thesis. He has focused the technical team and in particular their capabilities to manage both incremental (stepwise) and radical (by leaps) innovation. Anna Öhrwall Rönnbäck, Linköping University, lead the discussions in a very skilful and interesting way that shed light on Johan’s work from more than one perspective. Being ProViking PhD student, Johan also got the great honour to receive the diploma from the National research school.
