Managing Creativity

Creativity is regarded as essential, and even the greatest asset, in modern organizations – but how can we harness and manage it? Managing Creativity provides participants with an overall understanding of how to become a facilitator of creative potential in oneself, in teams, in organizations, and in networks. Participants will learn about the specific creative processes and what creativity is as an organizational attribute.

Establishing a force of creative thinkers whose ideas can change the way problems are solved is your organization's creative capital. Creative capital cannot survive and flourish without the processes, structures, and people who engage in creative endeavors.

This module will include deep dives into

  • the differences between incremental and radical creativity from a leadership perspective,
  • specific challenges in leading creativity in a virtual and hybrid work environment, and
  • leading creativity in networks and ecosystems.

Managing Creativity is a study module in the Aalto MBA program. It can be completed as a stand-alone program, or the earned credits can be transferred towards an Aalto MBA or Executive MBA degree. Participants must follow the academic rules on attendance and assignments to be eligible to receive a grade and the 4.5 ECTS credits from the module.

The next Managing Creativity program will be held on October 5–10, 2022. The program consists of three evenings and two full days in-class with leading Aalto University faculty on the subject: Ville Eloranta, Niina Nurmi, Tuomas Auvinen, and Oskar Person.

Seize this unique opportunity to join this Aalto MBA study module and take the next step in becoming the driving force in your organization that leads to growing creative capital.
