Successful organisations foster creativity as a precursor for innovation. Creativity requires motivation, the right environment, and an understanding of the creative process and of creative people. Innovation is defined as ‘change that adds value’. Anyone and any organisation can innovate if the processes are properly understood, capably led and undertaken within a creative framework.

In this workshop the fostering of creativity is explored - prerequisites, support and tools. It considers the role of expertise-driven creativity in the organisation and how the leader can build an organisation with a capacity to remain effective in dynamic environments. The role of innovation as an important factor for gaining competitive advantage is explained. Innovation is presented as a structured change process impacting on the core competencies of an organisation.
