Design thinking is one of the tools most commonly offered to professionals looking to become more innovative.

In this webinar, Professor Sosa will share the results of his recent research in the area of creativity and design, focusing on two fundamental aspects of creative collaboration:

- The best conditions for successful collaboration during innovation

Organizations today face an array of unprecedented challenges: technological disruption, rule-breaking competitors, omnipotent customers, pervasive regulation, new social demands and heightened employee expectations. To thrive in this new environment, firms will need to overhaul their bureaucracy-encrusted management practices. We need to make the jump from bureaucracy to humanocracy, from a management model that was designed to maximize control to one that is designed to maximize contribution. Gary Hamel shares a roadmap for this journey and tell you how to get started with your own team.
