Today's world involves change at an unprecedented pace. Managing creativity and innovation is becoming the most important responsibility for leaders in this new century. Leaders must build this capability in their people at all levels of the organization to initiate and implement the innovative solutions that can improve organizational effectiveness. This presentation will provide a model for creating an organization designed for maximum learning and innovation. Using jazz improvisation as the metaphor, participants will see how jazz players do what leaders find themselves doing: inventing novel responses without a plan or without certainty of outcomes and discovering the future that their action creates as it unfolds. Participants will gain a deeper understanding of factors that support innovation and creativity.
