Any great innovation begins with a new idea, but many organisational systems and structures inhibit the creative process that leads to new ideas. This subject focuses on an organisation’s role in promoting, supporting and enabling creativity and innovation for the benefit of the organisation. Students will explore the factors that both stimulate and hinder creativity in individuals, teams and organisations through a highly engaged and experiential classroom experience. Organisational systems, management philosophies and frameworks such as McKinsey’s 7S model are studied that embed creativity as an integral part of an innovative organisation, resulting in a set of skills and knowledge base that will empower students to be innovation enablers in their future work endeavours.
