How to support and enhance creativity at work?
Monday, the 20th of May, 9.30-11.00
There are few studies of creativity as an individual activity or as a collective practice in a work context. The few studies that do exist consider workplace creativity in terms of problem-solving, of creating something new, or the development of new work methods. The aim of these creative activities are to achieve high-quality results or to cope with the work itself. The processes involved in creative activity are triggered by different learning situations that embedded within various workplace learning practices. I will highlight what it is meant by ‘creative activity’ at work. I will also shed light to how leaders and HRD-practitioners can maintain and flourish creativity in organizations through various structures and practices. I will present various cases of creative activity and learning at the workplace both individual and collective and reflect on their implications for organizations, employees and leaders alike.
