“Innovate or die” is an exhortation that has become familiar to many organisations. Underpinning innovation is creativity; creative ideas provide the concepts that inspire innovation. Much advice that is written around creativity is focussed very narrowly on ideation or being more imaginative without addressing how these ‘flights of fancy’ can be applied to real life situations.
This workshop provides project managers and their teams with concrete and workable approaches that they can apply to pre-existing and embedded operational systems or project planning templates. This workshop helps participants understand more about creativity and how it works, and how creative thinking can be used to enhance planning and delivery of projects. During this interactive workshop participants will learn how to make space for creative thinking within a project plan without allowing the free-ranging nature of imaginative thought derail project plans and measures.
Trainer Meredith Lewis has over 25 years’ experience in creating outcomes from creative and innovative ideas. During her early experience as a choreographer and performer, and then as a project manager in the arts, tertiary and community sectors, she has devised an approach to incorporating creative ideas within conventional project management planning frameworks. It is this approach she wants to share in this workshop.
