Program Concept

How can creativity provide the competitive edge? To be competitive in today's world, individuals and organizations must continue to move forward, and must be the first to take initiative in making progress. In order to do this effectively, systems must be put in place that encourage corporate creativity. Creativity can occur in any company on a haphazard basis, and unfortunately in most companies it does happen by accident. But what would happen if creativity could be actively harnessed, directed, and promoted in an organization? Imagine what could be achieved! Successful companies are now those that effectively align internal values and processes to ensure consistent creativity.
