Some of the most innovative organizations today are known for their wild office spaces, flexible working arrangements and divergent ways of thinking. While not all of us have a climbing wall in our office or an afternoon set aside for personal projects, we will explore some of the most interesting and replicable ways of stimulating creativity with staff teams and fostering a culture of learning.
Bringing your imagination to work is the currency of the knowledge economy. In this course, we will look broadly at organizational learning and what fosters productivity in the workplace in the new millennium, as well as the challenges and benefits of making these cultural shifts. Finally, how can we integrate these concepts into our own workplaces to deliver innovative products and services?
