This ambitious course focuses on factors that contribute to creativity and innovation in individuals and groups within organizations. We will use a wide variety of experiential methods, including workshops, case studies, simulations, and team projects, supported by guest speakers and readings. Sample topics include how to frame and re-frame problems, how to challenge assumptions, how to work on creative teams, how to generate and test ideas, and how to tell a compelling story. Students participate in two team projects, allowing them to explore the variables that affect creativity and innovation in a variety of different settings.
