Lecture Topic

We all face an innovation imperative: innovate or die. Companies know that if they don't invest in strategies and people that help foster continual renewal, their futures can be quite grim. Creativity can be a source of innovation, which fuels our ability to be competitive both on a corporate level and on a personal one. This workshop will help attendees consider what it means to be a creative problem solving leader, and teach them how to create an effective process for driving creativity. In addition, this workshop will also provide some tools and strategies that can help professionals be more effective in each phase of the creative problem solving process.
