Establishing a Creative Engineering Culture
Creativity is at the heart of engineering, and is essential for developing innovative products, processes, and solutions to complex problems. Creative approaches are less effective if they are adopted by a few individuals. Real benefit is to be found wherever a creative culture prevails within an organisation. Establishing a creative culture in an engineering organisation takes more than installing some funky chairs, a football table and a suggestion scheme.
This course will help you to consider and explore these four questions:
- How might we characterise organisational culture?
- What cultural factors are associated with creative problem solving?
- How can we change organisational culture from the top down?
- How can we change organisational culture from the bottom up?
Who is it for?
Anyone in an engineering environment who wants to try and find ways to establish a more creative culture within their organisation.
