Professional Development Webcast Series (Part 3 of 3): The Case for Innovation
Topic: In today’s workplace, creativity and innovation is not an option - it is, and will continue to be, a business imperative. Leaders are constantly being confronted with new problems, new projects and new issues that, by definition, require new answers. The ability to see new — as well as old — problems, projects, and issues in a fresh, imaginative way is vital for individuals at all levels in an organization. Innovation plays a fundamental role in our thought processes, leadership practices, problem solving and decision-making. This course will help you understand how to keep innovation alive in your company and department.
• Increase efficiency and effectiveness by bringing innovation into the workplace dialogue
