In the contemporary increasingly competitive global market, established and emerging businesses must rely on creativity and innovation to sustain their positions and fuel their growth (Govindarajan & Trimble, 2007). Undoubtedly, creativity and innovation are critical to competitive advantage, undergirding organizations’ attempts to reinvent themselves at internet speed to stay ahead of technological change, new competitors around the globe, and continually shifting demands of customers and potential employees (DeGraff & Lawrence, 2002). Given these circumstances, creativity and innovation are relevant to all aspects of organizational life including human resource management (HRM) practices, growth strategies, marketing, operations, and products, processes, and services (Khandwalla, 2003; Maital & Seshadri, 2012) taking both technical and administrative forms (Damanpour & Evan, 1984; Hailey, 2001). Creativity and innovation emerge as the core of all competences within an organization, operating as the driving forces behind anything that is better or new and ensuring that organizations respond proactively to diverse pressures in order to achieve success (DeGraff & Lawrence, 2002; Kanter, 2006). Indeed, business leaders and managers are required to adeptly address challenges presented by a dynamic extra-organizational context, promote creativogenic organizational environments and nurture intra-organizational talent effectively straddling the discursive and iterative stages from ideation to implementation. Recognizing this, the proposed Executive Education Programme will help participants develop creative and innovative abilities as personal and organizational core competences.
This Executive Education Programme is designed for middle and senior managers across functional areas and industrial sectors. It will accommodate a maximum of 24 participants (This includes an upper limit of 2 participants per organization).
