Description

Creativity and innovation are critical for business effectiveness, but we struggle with realizing this in our everyday organizational life. We are prisoners of our habits and few of us achieve our creative potential. It is at a personal level, where we do not need money, time or resources, that creativity and innovation can flourish.

In order for this to happen at a corporate level, support is needed to generate ideas, capture them and systematically refine and select them.

Effective innovation depends on disciplined management systems and processes such as ‘idea management systems’. This conference will help you to:
1. Recognize the need and find the time to be more creative and innovative
2. Take active steps to become more creative; generating new ideas, capturing them and acting on them
3. Think about technology and social trends and recognise new opportunities that come about from the result of change
4. Nurture and encourage creativity within your team or department and to act on new ideas

This conference will introduce you to the concept of idea management systems that provide the technology and process to capture, review and implement new ideas.
